National Geographic Topo Maps are normally shipped within one or two days of ordering. HOWEVER, there can be delays if they have a backlog of orders. If you need your maps within 7-10 days, we suggest ordering via Priority Mail option to ensure you get your maps on time. If you need them faster than that, contact us and we can suggest a faster express service
Orders are mostly shipped via the US Postal Service. Any order over 13 ounces is shipped via Priority Mail.
Shipping charges: Charges are determined by weight. We charge the USPS rate for the weight of your order and add $0.25 for packaging and handling.
Shipping destinations: At this time we will only ship to US addresses. This is primarily because credit cards companies are reluctant to process out-of-country cards (because of continuing fraud issues).
Express Shipping: If for some reason you want your order send via courier (such as Federal Express) this can be arranged by emailing or calling us immediately after placing your order. We will calculate the costs, and confirm with you that you want the express shipping.
