I am required to collect sales tax on any order which is being shipped to an address
in New York state. The current sales tax rate is 7.5%.
I ship via the US Postal Service because it has proven to be as
fast (or faster) and significantly cheaper than either UPS or FedEx.
If for some reason you need me to use a shipping method other
than USPS, please contact me prior to placing your order.
The prices shown on my web site do not include shipping. The
shipping cost is calculated automatically by the shopping cart, based
on your location and the service type you would like to use (i.e.
First Class, Priority, Express, etc.) You will be able to see your
complete order total (including shipping) in the shopping cart prior
to checking out.
Following are the estimated transit times for the various shipping
services that I offer. Please be aware that these times are not a
guarantee, they are an estimate of the
transit time itself - the number of business days it should take for your order
to arrive once it has shipped.
For in-stock items, sometimes I am
able to ship out an item on the same day it is ordered, but it is more
usual for it to ship on the next business day.
Estimated transit times for various mail classes:
First Class Mail: 3-7 business days
Priority Mail: 2-3 business days
Express Mail: 1-2 business days
First Class International: Unknown! The USPS does not provide an estimate, but my experience has been anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. Note that tracking and insurance are not available using this shipping method.
Priority Mail International Flat Rate: 6-10 business days (Note that tracking and insurance are not available using this shipping method)
Priority Mail International: 6-10 business days
Express Mail International: 5-6 business days
Note that the international
estimates are only for the transit time itself - your country's
customs service may create additional delays upon entry.
Although Steiger Performance is located in the USA, I ship worldwide -
the shopping cart is configured to compute the proper amount of
postage based on your location and preferred service type. Please be
aware that for international shipments, your country may charge import
duties, taxes or other fees which you will be responsible for paying.
If in doubt, check with your local post office or applicable
authorities prior to placing your order.
Although I absolutely detest government taxes and import duties,
the penalties for mis-labeling an export form are rather stiff, so
although I would love to be able to reduce the potential fees faced by
my customers outside of the USA, I hope you will understand that I
cannot put my entire business at risk by declaring an international
package containing commercial goods as a gift or lower than actual
