Shipping Policy

All orders ship from Port Charlotte, Florida.  Why is Chicago Electronic Distributors shipping from Florida you ask?  It is a long story, but rest assured we were founded in Chicago and we are an Illinois corporation.  The good news is that the move has had no effect on delivery times.

Orders placed by 2:30 pm Eastern Time Monday to Friday typically ship the same day. 

Service Times and Holiday Schedules

FedEX picks up and delivers packages from Monday through Friday.  FedEx Ground usually takes 1-5 days, depending on how far from Florida you are.  FedEx Express Saver is a better option if you are in a hurry, as they deliver within 3 business days. Please note that neither service delivers on Saturday or Sunday. 

FedEx holidays typically include New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

USPS picks up and delivers Monday through Saturday. 

For light shipments, First Class Packages are a great value that generally take 2 to 5 business days.  Priority Mail is a 2 to 3 business day service, and Priority Mail Express is a 1 to 2 business day service. 

In addition to FedEx holidays listed above, USPS is also closed on MLK Day, Juneteenth, President's Day, Columbus Day, and Veteran's Day.  Please visit for updated holiday information. 

Tracking, Addressing and Shipping Cost

When we ship your order, we will email the tracking information to you.

You are responsible for entering your address correctly during checkout.  We cannot be held responsible for any addressing errors. If we need to re-ship your order due to an address issue, we will invoice you for any additional charges. The "Ship To" address you enter at checkout is the exact address your shipment will go out with. Please make sure your street address is complete. Lengthy addresses may get cut off, so abbreviate where necessary, and don’t enter elements twice.

Our shipping calculator is a great way to see how much we will charge for shipping.  Just go to your cart, put in your location at the bottom, and select Calculate Rates.

Stolen Packages

Please be sure you send your packages to a secure delivery address, as we are not responsible for stolen packages.
