We use UPS Ground as our default shipping method. Generally UPS will deliver by the next day in the Northeast. UPS does not deliver on weekends or certain major holidays. UPS prices vary from zip code to zip code and change occasionally. We are not responsible for increased UPS prices! For more information on UPS Policies and delivery times go to www.ups.com. UPS will NOT deliver to post office boxes.
Dean's Beans Flat Rate Shipping is an option that will only be offered for packages weighing 9 pounds or less. All packages going DB Flat Rate will be picked up by UPS and delivered to your home by the US Postal Service. This will add an additional 1-2 days onto your delivery time. Also, please note: There is no intercept allowed using this service so be very careful about your shipping address because once it leaves our facility we can not change or edit any of the delivery information.
We also offer US Postal Service Priority Mail. Packages going USPS are picked up the following business day and can take two to three days to arrive. USPS does deliver on Saturdays.
So, UPS is the faster option generally for orders in the Northeast but is a little more expensive. If you want your coffee sooner, use UPS. If you want your coffee cheaper, use USPS. For all you Westerners out there, well pardner, USPS is the faster method and costs about the same as UPS. Choose wisely! WE DO NOT OFFER EXPEDITED SHIPPING OPTIONS, SO CHOOSING THE MORE EXPENSIVE OPTION DOES NOT MEAN IT WILL ARRIVE TO YOU ANY FASTER
Here at Dean's we try to get out orders out as quickly as possible (usually out within a day of receiving the order, except on weekends) however things may slow down with heavy traffic, particularly around holidays. Please plan accordingly! It can take several more days during Holiday rushes and we don't want you to be disappointed. We are not responsible for late shipments. If an order comes in damaged or you get the wrong order please call us and we will replace it. Save the box and packaging for UPS inspection or return! We can be reached at 978-544-2002 ext. 10, M-F, 9-4 or leave a message with the office for these or any other shipping issues.
