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.

We currently ship orders to the contiguous states, Hawaii, Alaska, US territories, armed forces locations, and Canada. Orders placed by 2:30 pm Eastern Time Monday to Friday typically ship the same day.

Depending on the shipping address that you enter on the checkout page, you'll see some of the following options.

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.
