MarineSteering Shipping Terms

Does my billing and shipping addresses have to match?

For fraud protection purposes, we require that all address information match what is on file with the credit card company. If you are shipping to an address other than your billing address, the shipping address must also be listed with your financial institution as an alternate address. This can easily be done by calling the number on your statement or the back of your credit card. It only takes a few minutes and does not affect your billing information at all. If both addresses are on file with the credit card company, you still may receive an automated email regarding verification of your address.

If this is the case, please give us a call at 480-939-5586 so that we can manually verify your addresses with the credit card company. We do have an address match department that calls banks to verify addresses daily. If your financial institution cannot verify your address with us, you will be contacted via email or phone call. If we are unable to verify your address within 7 days, your order will be canceled.

When will my order ship?

MarineSteering is proud to offer a new shipping method, "Economy" for those price conscious shoppers out there! Available to customers in the contiguous 48 United States, a package that is shipped using Economy will be handled either through USPS or UPS. Packages that are routed to you utilizing USPS are the power of the United States Postal Service and are hand delivered by your local postal carrier. Most packages are delivered in 4 to 7 days and a tracking number will be provided tracing your package every step of the way! Since this method uses USPS some packages will be delivered on Saturday.
