All orders of in stock items are processed and shipped upon receipt. You will be notified of any items that are not in stock for shipment; this may be either Back-Ordered or Discontinued, etc . Normal processing time is 1-3 business days and delivery via UPS is generally 1-6 business days depending on your delivery address. Transit times may be calculated by visiting www.UPS.com and entering an originating zip code of 90248.

 

Regular shipping rates are calculated based on the weight of all items, and the dimensions of the box(es) being shipped.

 

A street address is required for us to ship via UPS. For Post Office Boxes and military bases we must ship via U.S. Mail and an additional shipping charge may be required.  Please allow at least 6-8 weeks for delivery of all U.S. mail shipments, which include but are not limited to HI, AK, Canada, PR, APO's, FPO's and P.O. boxes.  Additional postage may be due at time of shipping.

 

NOTE: On overweight or oversized items, an additional Heavy Weight Surcharge may have be added to the price.

 

International Orders

We ship to the USA, her outlying territories, and Canada. We are not accepting international orders outside North America at this time. We require a credit card issued by a U.S. bank or institution and would prefer a United States Shipping address to the due rising costs of brokerage fees.

Orders deemed too large or too heavy for standard shipping will be subject to shipment via truck. A customer service representative will contact you with a freight quote. All truck shipments must gain final customer approval before leaving our facilities.

Federal Trade Commission Warnings: The FTC Act requires that health and safety-related claims, such as claims that a gas mask, respirator or protective clothing can protect against contaminants, including NBC (nuclear, biological, and chemical) contaminants, must be supported by competent and reliable scientific evidence. Major Surplus and Survival makes no claims as to the effectiveness of any of the gas masks, respirators, or protective clothing it sells. The Military Surplus items we sell are just that: Military Surplus. We cannot claim their effectiveness. We only state that they are true Military Surplus and the basic condition the items are in. On non-surplus items, such as the Scott M-95 gas mask, Major Surplus only states that these items are newly manufactured and the manufacturer claims the effectiveness of any protection. These manufactures have shown us, Major Surplus, test results. We cannot, in any way, supply interpretations of said test results. We can provide a copy of the test results provided to us upon request.

 

Furthermore, any claims an item meets and or exceeds Military Standards (DOD) is based upon the manufacturers claim to us. Major Surplus has no means to scientifically prove or disprove such claims.

We respect your privacy and seek to protect the trust you place in Major Surplus & Survival. Our Privacy Policy is explained in more detail below.

1. What information does MajorSurplus.com collect from our online customers?
For those individuals who visit our site but do not make a purchase, we collect and store IP ("Internet Protocol") addresses during the visit. No individualized information is collected, and the IP address is not traced to a particular individual. Similarly, we collect information, using that IP address, about the navigational or browsing activities of our visitors. Again, that information is not tied to any name or other personally identifying information but is used solely to provide generalized demographic data, such as what geographic areas our visitors are from and visitor browsing patterns. We cannot use that data to identify you. For those who make a purchase on MajorSurplus.com, in order to fulfill the order, we collect and store your name, address, shipping information, email address, purchase data, and billing information.

This function enables us to store items in your shopping cart until you make a purchase. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent such acceptance, which will result in your inability to purchase online from us. We do not retain any individualized information as a result of our use of cookies.

In addition to using the information referenced above to fulfill your purchase order, we also retain your name, address, email address and purchase information in our customer database.

We also may use that information, from time to time, to contact you concerning our products, services, sales or special promotions of MajorSurplus.com or our corporate affiliates, including Major Surplus & Survival. We try to limit those contacts to ones that might be of interest to you.

We currently send emails only to those MajorSurplus.com customers who request that we provide them with information about our products and services.

4. How is the information MajorSurplus.com collects stored and what security procedures do we have in place to protect the confidentiality of that information?
Currently, the MajorSurplus.com customer information that we maintain is stored in our internet database and in our corporate customer database. We limit access to that information to those within our organization with a business need to know. Most of our employees do not have access to that information. In addition, we enforce a policy against unauthorized disclosure or use of the information you share with us, and we instruct our employees concerning that policy. Those employees that do have access are required to abide by our privacy policy. We also require that those third parties who provide services to us and may have access to customer information (such as data collection, storage and reporting services and mail vendors) share our commitment to maintaining your privacy and adhere to our company's nondisclosure requirements. As stated above, we do not under any circumstances sell or rent customer information to any outside company or organization nor do we permit any such organization to use customer information for its own business purposes.

In fact, we will release specific information about you only if we are compelled to do so to comply with valid legal processes such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order or in the unlikely situation where we, in good faith, believe such information is necessary to prevent harm to you or others.

We use secure server technology to keep your personal information - including your billing and account information - as secure as possible. Your ordering information is encrypted using Verisign software. Once your information is stored on our database, we have database security technologies and procedures in place to protect it from access by unauthorized employees or third parties.

5. How does MajorSurplus.com protect the safety and privacy of children?
Our site is not directed or marketed to children under the age of 18. We do not intentionally collect or store information on children.
