Production Lead Times
We ship all orders (containing less than 10 Survival Kits) out within 2-5 business days. We often are able to make same day shipments. Sometimes shortages may occur with products. If there are circumstances where we do not have an item to fulfill an order, we will notify the customer. We will either ship the products we do have and then make a second shipment for the missing items as soon as we receive them, or we will wait to ship the entire order together. Please note that it is rare that this will occur but uncontrollable circumstances may cause shortages.
For large orders of survival kits, we may require a lead time. We also may require a lead time for large product orders as well.

Please note, some documents that we may have to retrieve can have extra charges; the customer is responsible for paying the extra charges.
