SHIPPING INFORMATION

At ERIK'S, we strive every day to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your order. That includes making sure your order arrives quickly in great condition. This page contains information on our shipping. If your order was damaged or lost in shipping, click here.

General Shipping Policies

We try to ship all orders within 24 hours of the order being placed (Mon-Fri). For orders placed on weekends or public holidays, we aim to ship within 24 hours of the next business day. With that said, there are times when there are delays in shipping orders. The most common instances of this are:

 

  • Shipping Bikes that require extra time to prepare for shipping
  • Products not in stock: this includes any Product that is marked as ‘Ship When In,' ‘Back Ordered' or ‘Special Order' are not in stock. We will contact you within a business day to let you know if/when we will be able to fulfill your order
  • Although we do stock as many products as possible in Web Inventory, there are certain items (especially items marked as Closeout) that are only stocked at our stores. These items are always available for order online and in most instances we will still ship within our specified time frame. If there will be an additional delay, we will notify you within a business day, and work with you to make sure we fulfill your order in a timely manner

In any instance when we cannot ship within our specified time frame we will notify you within a business day providing an estimated shipping date along with alternative options as they are available.

Tracking Your Order

Every shipment we send receives full tracking information so you can follow the shipment status of your order. The tracking number will be emailed to you once your order ships.

Shipping Methods

Being honest and upfront about shipping is important to us. Many products qualify for Free Shipping but some do not. For items that do not qualify for free shipping, you can choose whichever Fed Ex service fits your needs. Before you finalize your order, you will have the ability to select the specific Fed Ex Shipping Service and the site will show you accurate shipping costs for each method.

Products that qualify for Free Shipping are marked with a ‘Free Shipping' tag on both the search page as well as the product page. For items that qualify for Free Shipping, we will use the most cost effective shipping method for that specific item. That includes (but is not limited to):

 

  • Fed Ex Ground Shipping
  • USPS Priority Shipping
  • USPS Flat Rate Shipping
  • USPS First Class Mail
  • USPS Parcel Post (it is very rare that we use this method and it is usually reserved to bikes shipping to APO/FPO boxes where we have no choice due to package dimensions)
