If your shipping destination is located in a 4-5 day area and you’d like the package to arrive sooner, you may choose UPS 2nd or 3rd Day air to expedite the shipping process. It will still leave the warehouse within 1-2 days; however it will take a total of 2-3 days to arrive once shipped, rather than 4-5 days.
