  • Additional charges may be applied for some heavy items due to higher postage. To see the shipping charge for an item, enter your zip code and the charge will be displayed in the "Shipping" column.

    The US Postal Service does not provide tracking numbers for First Class and Media Mail.

    If you select UPS shipping, we will email you a tracking number when we ship your order, which you will be able to track on the UPS web site. However, UPS does not ship to PO boxes or APO/FPO addresses, does not deliver on weekends, and may require a signature for delivery. If you request UPS and UPS does not deliver to your address, we will convert your order to First Class Mail or Priority Mail and reduce your shipping charge accordingly.

    For UPS orders, please do not include a PO box in your address. UPS will not accept packages with a PO box in the address.

    Larger orders may be upgraded to United Parcel Service (UPS Ground or 2nd Day Air), at no additional charge, at our discretion, to allow delivery tracking.

    Virginia residents: We must add 5% sales tax to your order.
    Florida residents: We must add sales tax from 6% to 7.5% depending on your shipping address.

    ModernRock.com cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items if: 1) You request shipment by First Class Mail or Media Mail and 2) You specify a shipping address to an office or apartment or condo building or a wrong address. In office buildings there are other parties involved after the US Postal Service delivers your order. In apartment and condo buildings packages might be left with third parties or in the open. If you do not want this type of delivery to be at your own risk, please select UPS shipping, which is trackable to its final destination.

    What does usually ships in 1 day mean?

    Usually ships in 1 day means we will usually be able to send your order from our warehouse within 24 hours.

    Back to top Shopping Cart

    When will I receive my order?

    There are two steps in determining when you will receive your order:

    1. How long it will take us to process and mail your order
    2. How long it will take the US Postal Service or United Parcel Service to deliver your order from our warehouse to the shipping address provided on your order.
    1) Our part:

    Our daily cut-off for same day orders is 11 a.m. Eastern Time. If we receive your order by 11 a.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), we will usually be able to ship it that same day. If we receive it after 11 a.m. Eastern Time, we will usually be able to ship it the next business day. We do not ship orders on weekends or holidays. We will notify you within 2 business days if we are sold out of an item you have ordered.

    If you give us a billing address and phone number that is different from what your credit card company has on file, please allow one additional day for processing.

    2) The part of the delivery service:

    a) The US Postal Service: Once your order leaves our warehouse, the US Postal Service controls all aspects of the final delivery to your address. We are unable to track the delivery status, and the US Postal Service does not guarantee delivery within a specific period of time. Please allow for additional delivery time around holidays due to heavy mail volumes.

    USPS Media Mail: The most likely delivery times will be within 3 to 10 business days (Monday through Saturday) from the date we mail your order, but you should allow as many as 28 calendar days.

    USPS 1st Class Mail: The most likely delivery times will be within 2 to 5 business days (Monday through Saturday) from the date we mail your order, but you should allow as many as 21 calendar days.

    b) United Parcel Service: If you select to have your order shipped via UPS Ground or UPS 2nd Day Air, we will provide you the tracking number so you can monitor the shipping status on the UPS web site (www.ups.com) or by phone. UPS does not deliver on weekends.

    UPS Ground Service: Please allow 2 to 6 business days (Monday through Friday) when shipping via UPS Ground.

    UPS 2nd Day Air: This is the most reliable delivery option when time is a factor. This service will deliver your order two business days (Monday through Friday)from the date it is shipped from our warehouse.

    Speed Up Your Order

    Want it fast? When you place an order, these are things you can do to help us deliver it to you faster:

    • Type your shipping address accurately and double check that it is correct. Incorrect shipping addresses are our #1 most frequent reason for shipping delays.
    • Use your 9 digit zip code. You can look it up on the USPS web site.
    • If you are requesting shipment to your work address rather than home address, please type your business or organization name on the first address line and the street address on the second address line. Missing business/organization names are our #2 most frequent reason for shipping delays.
    • Type your billing address the same way it is shown on your credit card statement. This helps accelerate the credit approval process.
    • Please double-check your e-mail address to make sure you have entered it correctly. We want to be able to correspond with you about your order.
    • Please give us your phone number. We may need to contact you quickly if there is a problem.

    Credit Card Security

    The most common question about e-commerce is "will my credit card information be safe?" The answer is yes. Yahoo! Shopping uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, the standard for Internet commerce. SSL encryption provides proven security for millions of transactions every year.

    ModernRock.com does not store your credit card information on our computers; we only use it to process your order. Additionally, ModernRock.com will never share your credit card information with any outside organization.

    We use an Address Verification System (AVS) to help protect customers from unauthorized use of their cards. When you place an order, please enter your billing address and phone number the same way your credit card company has that information on file. This will help us make sure we are shipping your order to the right address.

    We are as concerned about Security as you are, which is one reason we use Yahoo! Shopping for our store. For more information please read: Yahoo! Shopping Security.

    Credit cards issued outside the USA

    ModernRock.com reserves the right not to accept credit cards issued outside the United States of America. It is very costly and occasionally impossible to obtain authorization and address verification from non-USA card issuers. If you live in the USA and a non-USA credit card is your only choice, please give us as much information as possible about the card you are using: the name of the issuing bank, their address, their customer service phone number and email address, and your billing address on file with them. This will significantly increase the chances of approving the transaction.

    When you place an order with us, you are stating that you are the cardholder of the credit card and that the charge is authorized. We take credit card fraud seriously and report all instances of abuse to the credit card issuing bank, the United States Postal Inspection Service, and the local police department.

    Gift Orders

    Gift Certificates are delivered by e-mail immediately after you place your order. This is a good last minute choice. Gift Certificates can be redeemed for anything we sell on Yahoo! Shopping.

    When you place a gift order where the shipping address is different from your billing address, please expect that we might need to phone you to verify your order. Gift orders are common with those using stolen credit cards. Our computer software helps us spot fraudulent gift orders. If there is something unusual about an order we may need to phone you to be sure you are the one who placed the order. We may also use other verification steps to make sure you authorized the order. We never want to charge someone whose credit card information has been stolen, and we want to notify them so they can contact their bank immediately.

    Inventory Availability

    We update our inventory on Yahoo! Shopping several times every day. We make every effort possible to process and mail orders received before 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time that same day. The likely processing time (e.g. "Usually ships in 1 day") is shown for each item and is updated daily. "Usually ships in 1 day" means we have sufficient stock to cover high order volumes and we will almost always be able to process and mail those items the same day. We are able to process and send almost all orders within 48 hours.

    Orders placed on weekends and holidays will be processed and mailed the next business day.

    Sold Out Items and Backorder Policy

    As our inventory is updated several times every day, if you saw an item listed it means we had it in stock within the past few hours. Regretfully, we sometimes receive more orders for an item than we expect, and we may be temporarily sold out of an item that you ordered.

    We have a "no backorder" policy because we do not want to hold your order hostage if we are sold out of an item. We want you to have the flexibility to place your order somewhere else as soon as possible. We will automatically cancel your order if we are sold out and we will notify you as soon as possible.

    If you have ordered multiple items we will process and mail the items that we have in stock (we want to deliver what you have ordered as quickly as possible) and cancel the sold out portion of your order. We will reduce the shipping and handling charges based on the number of items shipped.

    When we notify you of a canceled order by email, please feel free to write back and request that we special order the item for you. We will attempt to obtain the item for you as a special order for 30 days. If we cannot obtain the item in 30 days, we will cancel the special order and notify you by email.

    We never charge your credit card until we have shipped your order to you.

    Pre-Orders of New Releases

    ModernRock.com's policy is to not charge your credit card until we have shipped your order to you. The only exception to this rule is pre-orders of new releases. To secure a new release before its release date and lock in our low price for you, we will order the item within one business day and charge your credit card. We will ship your pre-ordered item by the release date, or when it becomes available, and notify you when we ship it. Release dates are estimates and subject to change. If the release date changes, you have the option of waiting for the new release date or receiving a full refund.
