Our Fast Shipping Policy
Gerber Knives Direct makes it a priority to ship all orders promptly. It is our policy that items are shipped within 24-48 hours of ordering. However, most items are normally shipped the same business day for orders placed before 12PM EST and paid with credit card without complication.
The exception is items that are backordered. Backordered items will be shipped as soon as they become available. Payment complications include: billing information inconsistent with what's on the credit card record, and orders that can't be verified by phone. Orders placed during non-business hours such as evenings, weekends and holidays are normally processed and shipped on the next business day.
Gerber Knives Direct ships by UPS & USPS. In some instances, FedEx may be used in place of UPS when necessary. Unless otherwise specified, orders will be shipped by standard ground service. Once your order has been proccesed and shipped, you will recieve an email with tracking information for your package.
Please make sure you enter your address correctly as the label will be printed just as you enter your information. Make sure you enter apartment numbers, suite numbers or any other details. We are not responsible for incorrectly entered addresses. Shipping charges are not refundable.

When Billing & Shipping Addresses Are Different
For fraud prevention purposes, if your billing and shipping addresses are different, we must verify certain detailed information; including but not limited to the full name, address and landline phone numbers of people residing at both the bill to and ship to addresses. Additional verification may also require contacting the bank that issued your credit card and verifying a small (Less than $1.00) charge on your account in that bank's records. The charge will be refunded after verification. There may be a 2 day delay when shipping to any address other than the credit card billing address. We will call you to confirm. Gerber Knives Direct reserves the right to cancel any order.
Note: we are not responsible for delays by USPS, FedEx or UPS. In the event of a delayed delivery, we will work on your behalf and directly with USPS, FedEx or UPS to secure an appropriate credit, if it is warranted. Please also note that FedEx and UPS does not guarantee delivery times during certain dates surrounding key holidays, such as Christmas; they commit only to making a best effort with allowances for mechanical failure as well as air traffic and weather delays.
