Shipping & Returns

At Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supplies we pride ourselves with our fast shipping.  All orders are shipped same day if placed by 2pm EST Monday through Friday.   After 2pm EST they will ship the next business day.  Even our custom orders ship within 48 hours.  We use USPS to ship your order and provide you with the lowest shipping prices available.

For our international customers:             

We ship the majority of our international shipments by USPS International.  Most international first class orders arrive within 2-3 weeks.  Priority orders usually arrive within 1-2 weeks.  Every now and then an order can take a little longer to arrive. Most shipping delays are related to the receiving countries customs processing.

International shipments will receive a customs number in the order confirmations.  This is not a tracking number.  Some countries will see a delivery scan but if you want tracking you must select International Priority Mail.

Import duties and customs charges:

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what additional costs will be prior to buying.

If you have any questions, please email us at
