Shipping Shipping

Shipping Fees

Shipping charges include shipping and handling, packing materials, and customs paperwork (if applicable). In the case of international shipments, shipping charges DO NOT include customs taxes and/or brokerage fees. These taxes/fees are the customer's responsibility and are collected by your government upon delivery. Consult your local authorities about the tax rates for your country.

Shipping Estimates

Please note that shipping estimates for special orders and modifications are approximate time frames, not a guarantee. Averages are based on past performance and may vary depending on the manufacturer and the workload our shop is currently experiencing.

Delivery Assurance Coverage

We offer Delivery Assurance Coverage for $2 per first $100 value, then $.50 per $20 thereafter against lost or damaged packages. With Delivery Assurance Coverage, your shipment will be replaced if lost or damaged during shipping. You will see Delivery Assurance Coverage in our checkout system when you checkout. If you deselect this option, lost or damaged packages cannot be replaced.

Special Orders

Shipping time will be affected if you purchase special services such as gold plating, special throats/backbores, or other custom mouthpiece work as well as non-standard mouthpieces. The delay for special order items and services varies by item, service and manufacturer. Please contact us for details.


We attempt to keep as complete and well-rounded inventory as possible. However, backorders occur from time to time despite our best efforts. We make no claims or guarantees about availability by posting products for sale on Mouthpiece Express.com. The products of some manufacturers are particularly popular -- these manufacturers sometimes experience considerable delays in providing us with product to sell to you. Please review these policies about backorders:

  1. If some of the items in your order are backordered, but other items are in stock, we hold the in-stock items until all backordered items arrive and ship all items together. One shipment saves you money, as the shipping courier charges each time they deliver. We will ship items separately only if you request it -- if you request separate shipping you will be charged for shipping for each shipment.
  2. Backorder notifications: For orders of stock (non-special order) items, we will inform you via email of backorders as soon as possible after the date of your order. We will estimate the arrival time of the backordered items, but please note that the estimate is not a guarantee of delivery time. The estimate is based on those suppliers' history of delivering like items. Additional delays can and do occur.
  3. Special order items: Generally, each special order item has an advisory statement on its product page telling the average delay for that item. For those items, we do not send an email notification of backorder or delay unless we know that item will be delayed longer than usual. If you have questions about the delay for a particular special order item, contact us.
  4. Premium shipping: If your order includes backordered items and you requested premium shipping (such as UPS 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air), we will ship to you using that shipping service unless you request otherwise. We can change your shipping option at anytime up to the time of shipping.

Daily Shipping

We ship Monday through Friday, except when we close to observe holidays.
For all Premium packages (e.g. Overnite, 2nd Day, etc.) our cut off time is 11:00 AM EST.

IMPORTANT! If you receive a notification from us that we have shipped and you do not receive your shipment within a reasonable period time:

Domestic US customers must contact us within 15 days after shipping to notify us of missing shipments.

International customers must notify us within 45 days after shipping to notify us of missing shipments.

Customers who do not notify us of missing shipments within the specified notification period will not be eligible for shipment replacement or refund.

Domestic US Shipping

We use the US Postal Service and UPS and the as our shippers. We offer you the following domestic US shipping services:

Service Type Delivery Estimates
USPS First Class Mail 2-5 Days
USPS Priority Mail 2-3 days
USPS Express Mail 1-2 days
UPS Ground No guarantee; usually 2-7 days, depending on distance
UPS 3 Day Select End of Day - 3 Days
UPS 2nd Day Air End of Day - 2 Days
UPS Next Day Air Saver End of Day - 1 Day
UPS Next Day Air 10:30 AM - Next Day
UPS Next Day Air Early A.M. 8:00 AM - Next Day

UPS does not deliver on Saturdays as part of their regular service, and therefore Saturdays should not be counted as a "shipping day" when trying to determine delivery date. However, Saturday delivery by UPS is available to some areas upon request and at an additional charge. UPS Saturday delivery is generally expensive and requires Next Day Air shipping plus an additional charge and special arrangements must be made. Please contact us if you wish to have your order shipped via UPS on a Saturday.
These delivery times are presented by the shipper. Any claims on these guarantee shipping times (e.g. Overnite, 2nd Day, etc.) will be claimed with the shipper.
Guaranteed shipments are guaranteed by the shipper and not Mouthpieceexpress.com

International Shipping

We ship internationally via the US Postal Service Airmail and by UPS. The US Postal Service estimates 4-7 day USPS Airmail Delivery. This is an estimate only; it is not a guaranteed delivery time. Also, please allow extra time for packages to be processed through Customs. Delays in Customs are not unusual. We cannot offer guarantees on shipping time for international orders.

Why are some shipping options not available for my country?

Due to recent changes in the United States Postal Services shipping policies regarding insurance we can no longer offer some shipping methods for our international customers.

We must report the correct purchase price on customs forms. We cannot designate international shipments as "gift" or "sample," and we cannot misrepresent the amount of sale on invoices for the purposes of avoiding customs taxes.

Free or Discounted Shipping

  • Mouthpiece Express offers from time to time a Free Shipping Promotion on selected products. If you purchase a Free Shipping Promotional item Mouthpiece Express will select the shipping method that balances time in transit, cost and dependability of the delivery method, most Free Shipping Promotional orders will be shipped by USPS. Delivery Assurance is still an option with the Free Shipping Promotion. Please review Delivery Assurance icon for more details about that excellent offering. All free shipping promotions are intended for customers within the United States only unless otherwise noted.
  • Example: If a Free Shipping Promotional item is returned, your refund will be calculated less the shipping charges for the method used when the item was shipped. Example: An item that sold for $49.45 with the Free Shipping Promotion is returned we would refund you the $49.45 less the cost of shipping it to you. In this example it was first class USPS for $3.78 your refund would be $45.67. If there are any cleaning or restocking fees they would be deducted from the refund amount as well.
