SHIPPING UPDATE 10/08/2021
FedEx has already started seeing delays (even in their express shipments) and it’s not projected to get much better for the remainder of the year. While we know it’s early, we would advise starting your holiday shopping early this year to avoid delays. Our refund policy will be extended from 30 days to 90.
Historic Ships is keeping an eye on the COVID-19 pandemic and we wanted to inform you of the actions we are taking to keep our customers and employees safe. As we have yet to experience interruptions, we will continue to fulfill and ship orders until further notice.
