  • To locations outside the 48 contiguous states, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands.
  • To APO/FPO addresses

Drop Ship/Manufacturer Direct Items

Drop ship items are shipped directly to your destination from the source, whether one of our factories or a vendor's factory or warehouse. Additional shipping charges apply and will be applied during the checkout process. Drop shipments typically take two weeks for delivery. Exceptions will be noted in the product description.

Please contact our Contact Center at 1-800-223-9132 if you have questions regarding a drop ship item. Cancellation of a drop ship item once the order has been received may be assessed a restocking fee, and shipping charges will not be refunded. 

Changing or Returning Drop Ship Orders
Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-336-3114 if you prefer to process any changes or return a drop ship item. Our Customer Service Department will be pleased to contact the vendor to notify them of the return and provide a return authorization number. Returns due to a customer ordering error are the responsibility of the customer to return directly to the vendor using the return authorization number. Shipping charges will not be refunded or reimbursed. A minimum 20% restocking fee may apply.

NOTE: Drop rates noted on our website are based on shipping within the 48 contiguous states only. A Customer Service Representative will contact you to provide a freight quote for shipping outside of the 48 contiguous states.

Drop Ship Items that Ship by Freight:
A small number of products ship from the source, i.e. they are Drop Ship items, and must be shipped via freight instead of by a parcel carrier. This is usually due to the size or weight of the item. Those items are marked online as both Drop Ship and Truck Ship items.

Similar to a regular Drop Ship item, an additional shipping charge applies. Unlike a regular Drop Ship item, the amount of that charge varies per customer. Like the Truck Ship items that ship from our warehouse, the freight charge is based on the shipping destination. A Customer Service Representative will contact you with your actual charges. In the shopping cart, an estimated freight charge for these items will be added to your shipping charge. This amount is based on typical freight shipments in our industry and is only an estimate, intended to provide you with a general idea of what your freight charges will be.

Shipping Gift Cards

Gift Card Only Orders:
Utrecht offers Free Ground Shipping for Gift Card Only orders. Orders containing only a Gift Card, regardless of whether it is from our line of pre-filled gift cards or cards where you specified the amount to be loaded onto the card, ship free via First Class U.S. Mail.

Orders with Pre-filled Gift Cards AND Merchandise:

Pre-filled Gift Cards ordered with other merchandise will ship separately. The card's value will not be added to the merchandise total for purposes of calculating the regular ground shipping charges. 

Backordered Items Policy

Out of stock items that ship from our warehouse are designated as On Back Order online. If you place an order containing a back ordered item, those items will be shipped to you immediately via our regular ground carrier, Fedex SmartPost, when they are back in stock. This is a ground delivery service that delivers your order to the local post office that services your shipping destination, which will then deliver your order to its final destination. 

Backordered items are invoiced when they ship, not when the in-stock portion of your order is shipped and invoiced. Your purchase receipt shows your total order amount including the backordered items.
