For domestic shipping we use UPS Ground and charge a flat rate in most cases, with the exception of bulk orders for oversize items such as neck blanks, for which we will charge the actual rate. The rates are $13 for orders up to $100; $14.50 for orders up to $250; $19.50 for orders up to $350; and $24.95 for orders over $350. Please contact us you need faster other shipping options.International Orders
Because our products can vary so much in size and weight, all international orders are charged the actual cost of shipping with USPS, which we have found to be the most cost effective shipping option. You can either submit your order and we will follow up with a separate invoice for shipping once your order has been packed, or click "contact us" above to get a shipping quote before placing your order.
Most of the standard shipping services that we use don't include insurance. It is the buyer's responsibility to contact us to request insurance and cover any additional costs that it brings. Allied Lutherie is not responsible for any items that are lost or damaged in transit that didn't arise from any negligence on our own part.
