Shipping Service

Schwartz Candies ships with United Parcel Service (UPS).  UPS does not deliver to United States Post Office Boxes.  

Our Standard Shipping Service uses Ground Service (UPS).  These services generally deliver on weekdays, Monday-Friday.  Weekend delivery may be available on a limited basis.  Additional charges may be applied for weekend delivery.

Package Returns

Our response to packages returned to us by UPS will be evaluated on an individual basis in consultation with the shipping company and with the customer who sent the package.  We do not re-send candy that has been returned, because the condition of the candy can no longer be guaranteed.  If the package is returned due to an incorrect address or other error in information we were given by the customer or due to other circumstances beyond our control and the customer wishes to re-send the package, we will send fresh candy and the customer will be charged in full for the merchandise and the shipping.

Hot-Weather Shipping

Because chocolate is vulnerable to damage by heat, Schwartz Candies recommends that Standard (ground) Shipping be used only for shipments going to destinations where the high temperatures are below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Schwartz Candies reserves the right to delay shipment of any items that are likely to be damaged in transit. We will notify customers of any necessary or suggested delay.

When the temperatures are 70 degrees and above and the package will be in transit for two days or more by Standard (ground) Shipping, Schwartz Candies recommends the use of Overnight Shipping.

Time in Transit

Shipments sent by Standard (ground) Shipping are generally scheduled to be delivered within 2-6 business days of when you placed your order, depending on the destination of the package.  Occasionally those transit times are increased because of days when UPS or FedEx do not move packages or when Schwartz Candies is closed.

Packages shipped by Expedited Service generally are delivered within 2-3 business days of when you placed your order.

Packages shipped by Overnight Service are generally delivered within 1-2 business days of when you placed your order.

All times in transit are subject to change after you place your order depending on a variety of weather conditions (heat, snowstorms) and whether we have an item in stock.  We will inform you if there will be a delay in shipment of your order.

The delivery dates listed in checkout are estimated delivery dates.  Schwartz Candies will endeavor to have your package delivered on or before the estimated delivery date.  When you request a delivery date, Schwartz Candies will try to have your package delivered on that date or a day before that date.  If it is not possible for us to delivery your package on or before a requested date, Schwartz Candies in most cases will contact you.  Circumstances may arise that make it impossible to reach you prior to shipment of your package.

Additional Charges

Schwartz Candies reserves the right to add an additional charge to shipments in oversized cartons or to shipments packed in multiple cartons. Schwartz Candies will notify the customer of changes to the shipping cost before adding the charge.

 

Free Shipping

A minimum of $125.00 in merchandise going to one address is required to receive free shipping. Free shipping is not available for orders with volume discounts.  Ground shipping is used for shipments that choose the Free Shipping option.

Free Standard (Ground) Shipping is available when you purchase 2 or more Gift Boxes going to one destination. The high temperatures in the New York Metropolitan area and at the destination must both be below 70 degrees Fahrenheit in order to receive Free Shipping.

Packages shipped with free shipping generally take longer to get to their destination than those shipped by paid services.  Schwartz Candies will try to get your package to its destination on or before the estimated delivery date.
