How long will it take for my order to ship?

Upon approval and verification of credit card information, orders will be processed for shipment. Orders paid by check, may be subject to slight delays. All checks must be received and cleared prior to order processing. Inconsistent data and billing information may also delay your order. Certain orders may require special processing due to limited quantities on particular items. Michele Pelafas, Inc. will notify customers who have placed orders for these "out of stock" items. On average, most items are shipped within 1 week. However, some items have longer lead times, including custom orders that may take up to 14 weeks. Each product page shows 'Estimated' shipping times based on stocked quantities or custom, made-to-order manufacturing processes. These dates are estimates only and Michele Pelafas, Inc cannot be held responsible for additional delays due to manufacturing delays or shipping carriers. Please contact us for any shipping or lead-time inquiries.

What levels of service are offered for large item deliveries?

Certain items available on are required to be shipped via a 3rd party freight carrier, because they are too heavy or require special handling that standard delivery carriers are unable to manage. If your purchase will be delivered via a 3rd Party service, you will be contacted by the delivery Company via telephone, 1-5 days prior to the delivery to schedule an appointment and discuss the details of your shipment. You will need to be present to sign for the item. Large order deliveries, shipping via 3rd party carriers are brought to the curbside only unless otherwise noted. If you would like White Glove delivery service, please contact us and we will arrange it with our freight carrier. Additional fees may apply.
