Teddy Bear Delivery & Shipping

We absolutely love our customers, and we are serious about excellent customer service!

Service method
The Serious Teddy Bear Company utilizes the United States Postal Service (USPS) for all orders.

Daily cut-off for shipping
We strive for same day shipping service on orders, Monday - Friday! We will ship your order the same day the order is placed if your order is on a weekday before 4:00pm Eastern Time zone (EST/EDT). The cutoff is 4pm Eastern time zone in the United States, but in most cases if you've placed your order before 4pm Eastern, it will ship that same day (weekdays only, Monday through Friday). If an order is received any weekday after 4:00pm Eastern Standard Time zone (EST) it will be shipped out the following business day (Mon-Fri). For example, if you order on a Friday after 4:00pm EST, it will be shipped out on Monday which is the next business day.

Overnight shipping
In most cases your order can be shipped overnight as long as we receive your order before 4:00pm Eastern time zone, Monday through Friday. USPS delivers overnight packages on Saturdays, so an order placed on Friday before 4:00pm Eastern time zone will arrive on Saturday within the United States as long as the method of service is "overnight" for your order. On rare occasions some Priority Express shipments might take an extra day if the area your 'Hugs" are going to is a more remote area or not serviced by a Post Office near the zip code area "Hugs" is going to.
