Miniature Aircraft ships all packages using FedEx or Deutsche Post / DHL shipping. Choosing to utilize our standard Flat Rate Shipping option allows Miniature Aircraft to select the shipping method which we feel best meets both of our needs. If you wish to use an expedited service offered by FedEx or Deutsche Post, please contact Miniature Aircraft either by email, or by placing a comment on your order. After your order is pulled and packed, we will contact you with the shipping charges for the method you wish to use. Tracking numbers will be emailed to the email address provided in your account the morning after your package has shipped.
Upon check out you will notice only one shipping option (small Flat Rate Shipping). After your order is pulled and packed, we will determine if your order qualifies for the small flat rate shipping charge. If it does, your order will ship promptly and you will be provided a tracking number the morning after it is shipped. If we find that your order does not qualify for small flat rate shipping, we will calculate actual shipping costs for Deutsche Post / DHL (usually 6-10 business days) and FedEx (usually 1-3 business days) and we will contact you with those rate/options by emailing the address provided in your customer account. If we do not get a response from you with your choice within 5 business days, your order will be cancelled. Any duties or taxes imposed by your country are your responsibility. IT IS A CRIME to falsify trade documents. We do NOT include false value statements – only actual invoices.
We will NEVER CHARGE YOUR CARD for anything on backorder until it is ready to ship to you. If you have selected an item that is out of stock, we will contact you via telephone or email to allow you choose how to proceed. You will be offered a few options depending on the status of the out of stock item(s).
- You may choose to hold your order until it is able to be filled complete.
- You may choose to ship the parts that are available now, and hold the backorder portion only. This will incur addition shipping charges.
- You may choose to ship the available items and cancel the backorder.
- Or you may choose to cancel your entire order.
