Shipping FAQ

How do I get a shipping quote for international shipping?
Unfortunately, our cart system only makes getting shipping quotes easy for domestic shipments. However, you can still get a quote for international shipping by going through the “checkout” process. In step 2 it will give you shipping options and the cost to ship. This is the only way, so far, that we have been able to get a shipping quote for our international customers. If you still are having problems, please give us a call (616) 772-9020 or email us at

How do I find different options for shipping?
If you are shipping domestically, on the cart page you should be able to put in your shipping zip code and the system will give you options in a drop down menu. Please note, that not all shipping options are available for every area.

When can I expect my package?
Depending on when it shipped and what method, it can take up to 5 business days for domestic packages. International varies.

How often does Trailbuddy ship?
To keep shipping costs down, we only ship on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you need your item to ship any faster, we can do it but there will be a $7 minium fee to ship the package out. (That fee is what it costs us to schedule a pick-up for the package.)

First class mail goes out every Monday and Friday.

Shipping seems high, what can I do?
Email us at with what you want to order and where it is going, and we can see if we can do any better.

Our cart system goes by weight- so if you have 4 items that each are under a pound our system calculates it as 4 punds opposed to the 2.5 pounds they may actually weigh.

If I overpaid in shipping, do you refund those funds?
Yes, if we find that you have been overcharged for shipping/handling- we refund the monies. We don't make a profit on shipping.
