Actuonix Shipping Policies
Items in Stock and Items built to order:
items listed on the web store are available to order. To find out which actuators we have in stock, click the inventory tab to the left and then the specific product listing. In
stock items ship within 1-2 days. Items not in stock can still be
ordered, but will be built to order, so they can take 2-3 weeks to ship from
the order date. If for some reason there will be a longer delay we will contact you by email. Please keep this in mind when you choose an express
Our shipping cutoff times are: UPS: 2PM PST FedEx: 11AM PST. We ship Monday - Friday all in-stock orders. Once you enter a complete shipping address,
the web store will calculate all the shipping options for your order.
UPS and FedEx offer Express 1 or 2 day service from our facility to most destinations in the US and Canada. Ground services are provided by UPS only.
We do offer shipping by "Canada Post Airmail" for orders of 2 or less actuators only. This service has no
tracking and no insurance
, hence why we cannot ship more than 2
actuators by this method. It is also our slowest shipping service and can take 2-4 weeks or more to reach it's destination.
If you choose "On your Shipping
provide in the appropriate box a valid shipping account number from UPS,
FedEx, or DHL
. If you don't your order will be delayed until we get your
shipping account number.
Please remember to include the service you
wish from your shipping company in the comments box
. Note: We don't ship FedEx Ground as they will charge us for scheduling a pickup at this end.

FedEx orders placed after this time will be shipped the next business day.

use Canada Post for Canadian Orders as the UPS Standard to

Expedited, and UPS Express Saver.
FedEx services offered in Canada are FedEx Priority and Economy.
All orders shipped to the USA that use UPS Expedited or Express shipping have all
duty and brokerage charges included in the shipping cost.
services to the USA are: UPS Ground, UPS Expedited and UPS Express. UPS gives us a significant discount on the Express service and sometimes it will be cheaper than Expedited and Saver. Please note: UPS Ground cannot be used for orders over $800 in value because of the added brokerage fee, which again makes it more expensive than Express. Express is faster than Expedited, and is 1 or 2 days to the US depending on your location. The duty imposed by the US Government on Linear Actuators is 0%, but there are brokerage and other
bond fees imposed by the broker. These are all included if you choose UPS Expedited or Express. If you choose Mail or Ship on
Your Account, you will be responsible for these fees when you receive
the order. The exception is orders under $800 are usually admitted duty
free to the USA.
FedEx Priority and Economy services to the USA include brokerage and duties if under $800US in value.
