Instruments are usually shipped within 24 hours or sometimes 48 hours after notification of payment. Unless payment was made on Friday evening, then shipping is done on the following business day.
All instruments are usually packed in USPS supplied boxes but I try to do my part in saving the Earth by recycling when I can. I hope you do not mind if your flute arrives securely packed in recycled materials. Packages may be tracked within the U.S.
For International Shipping, items are not able to be tracked once they arrive at your country's Customs Department. If you would like increased tracking security, choose INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS PRIORITY from the shipping options during the checkout process.
