ModemGuide’s shipping policies, including how long it will take for orders to ship, shipping carriers offered and much more! If your question wasn’t answered here, we’re hanging out in our customer care center waiting to help out. You can chat with us, or drop us a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
Orders will ship within 1-3 business days of when the completed order is received and payment is processed, unless noted at the time order is placed or if you receive an email notice that an item in your order has been delayed. Preorders or items that are marked online as “Backorder” will ship at a future date.
Any expected delivery dates that may be given are only estimates. Orders can be delayed due to verification, shipping carrier delays or during peak order seasons such as Black Friday. Orders may be delivered in separate shipments. All purchases through ModemGuides.com are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon tender of the item to the carrier.

APO addresses (such as Armed Forces addresses overseas):
- An additional 21 calendar days will apply

If you refuse a shipment or the shipment is abandoned, it cannot be recovered, and ModemGuides.com will not issue you a refund for your order.
Shipping fees are based on the destination, size and weight of your item(s) and include a small fee for insuring the full value of your item(s) against possible theft or damage while in transit. You can calculate your estimated standard shipping fee for any product by adding product to your shopping cart and including basic shipment information, which includes your nation and postal code.
