Most expedited shipments are shipped via UPS Second Day Air Service.
If your order is placed before noon, CST, Monday through Friday,
we will make every effort to get your Expedited shipment out on the same day but we cannot guarantee it.
Please note: Packages going Second Day Air arrive two days AFTER the day they are shipped.
An additional oversize surcharge of $10 may be added to Second Day Air charge.

Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii and Canada
Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii and Canada are always sent by U.S. Postal Service and are charged
the actual amount of postage. There is a $5 shipping deposit charged at the time of checkout and is applied
to the final shipping charge. Orders over $200 will receive 35% off the actual amount of postage.

Depending on destination, most packages within the U.S. usually arrive within one to four days
after leaving our store in Minneapolis. Remember UPS does not deliver on Saturdays.

Shipping Perishable Items
Customers ordering perishable food items are asked to consider how they would like their order to be shipped. Customers shipping perishable food items should choose (only) one of the following options:
*  Standard Shipping with the addition of a freezer pack (adds $2)
*  Standard Shipping with the addition of a re-usable insulated cooler box and freezer pack (adds $10)
*  Expedited Shipping   (adds $20)
*  Standard Shipping without a freezer pack or cooler box. 

      Ingebretsen's is not  responsible for any spoilage or damage.

Backordering Items
If an item is not available in the quantity you desire at the time you are placing an order, you will see a note under that item in your Shopping Cart, indicating how many of that item will be backordered, if you choose to go forward with that quantity of the item.

The cost of backordered items will be authorized and held at the time of checkout, but will not be finally charged (captured) until we receive those items and are ready to ship.  We will hold your in-stock items, and ship them with your backordered items, if we are certain things will arrive within a week of the order being placed.  If we are unsure we will send the in-stock items right away and the backordered items when they arrive.  Your total shipping charges will not exceed the shipping cost of your original order.

If you do not wish to wait for an item on backorder, you may remove it from your order, or change the quantity you are ordering (make sure when you change the quantity that you click on the "Update Shopping Cart" button.


If you have any questions, please email to orders@ingebretsens.com
or call us at 1 800 279 9333 for the mail order department.

Flying Box Earth
Do some of our shipping boxes appear to have been around the world several times?
Yes, because they may well have been!
In an effort to think green and keep our shipping fees as low as possible,
we try to re-use boxes and packing materials whenever possible.
