Guarantee shipments carry a money-back guarantee. This service includes a delivery date provided by the courier that indicates the guaranteed arrival date. 


However, neither ShipTime nor the courier can guarantee that a shipment will not encounter delays in transit. 

In the event of a delivery delay should the shipment arrive after the applicable guaranteed deliver time on the applicable guaranteed deliver day, customers may request a refund for the cost of transportation for your shipment. Shipment guarantees only apply to delays within the courier’s control.
