Shipping policy

Standard Shipping

Our dedicated shipping team works Monday thru Friday, and typically will ship your order in 1 business day. Shipping times are about 7-10 days. Most orders fall under our standard shipping policy. We offer FREE shipping over $100 on these qualifying orders. For orders under $100, we get our shipping prices straight from USPS rates and will charge accordingly. Most orders fall within $5 - $12.


Big Box Shipping

Some of our larger products (for example the Falcon 9) will have an additional shipping charge attached due to the size of the box. These products do not qualify for free shipping.


Large Engines (E & F) Shipping

Our larger engines contain enough combustible material to be considered Hazmat Shipments. There is a significant ($35.49) fee to ship these engines. Only one fee will be applied per order.


Holiday Shipping

The Holidays are our busiest time at Estes as we work diligently to ensure our customers receive their gifts on time. Our shipping and processing times may be longer during this time, however, we will display a date for orders to be guaranteed arrival by Christmas. Be sure to order prior to this date to avoid any unwanted delays.


Expedited Shipping

Unfortunately, we are unable to expedite shipping. Our Model Rocket Engines contain black powder, and thus must ship via USPS ground with proper paperwork.
