Ordering & Shipping

Order Processing
USPS requires the name on the package to be the same name on the mailbox for package delivery. Please be sure to use the name on the mailbox at the shipping address, and/ or the company name and the apartment or suite number when submitting your order!

Orders process in 1-3 business days and will be shipped by the shipping service selected during checkout. Please visit usps.com or ups.com for estimates of exact transit times from our zip code, 60625 to your destination. If your order is urgent and must arrive by a certain date, please contact us before or immediately after placing your order at knock [at] neighborlyshop [dot] com.

Once your package has shipped, Neighborly will contact you with the appropriate tracking information for your order. This cost can be applied toward a more expensive shipping option if a faster or alternate service is needed.

Time Sensitive Orders
Once your order is in the hands of the shipping service, packages can be delayed for any number of reasons and even though certain services are guaranteed, that does not mean it will arrive on time, it only means that if it doesn't, we can submit for a refund on the shipping charge. If your order is time sensitive we HIGHLY recommend contacting us before placing your order or immediately after and let us know that you are in a hurry!

Neighborly is not responsible for an incorrect shipping address that is provided to us. If the package is returned due to an incorrect shipping address, the customer will be responsible for the cost of reshipping.

We take the greatest care when packaging your order for shipment, but from time to time, wild elephants may run over your package or it may fall into a black hole.
