Shipping Information


Best Glide A.S.E. utilizes UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail as our Standard methods of shipping. Which method between the two that is chosen depends on the items ordered and the method found to be most economical at the time. However, we also offer UPS Next Day air, as well as other methods of priority shipping at our new retail website, UPS allows us to provide you notification of shipment information and a tracking number so that you may monitor your order’s status. The same applies for shipments sent via USPS, one of our standard shipping methods. The shipping and handling charges are determined by an approximation of weight. If you would prefer another method of shipping, to include US Mail, please contact us prior to ordering and we will make every effort to accommodate your needs.  Most orders are shipped within 48 hours of receipt.

We are excited to now be able to ship to our friends in the United Kingdom. The preferred method is via U.S. Postal Global Express Mail (EMS). However, we have not yet included this in our shopping cart options.  Please contact us at for shipping rates.

All shipments to Canada are shipped UPS unless US Postal Service (USPS) shipping is requested. However, please know that UPS applies fees, that we have no control over, to packages delivered to Canada addresses, which are collected by UPS prior to delivery. These fees do not go to us and are the sole responsibility of UPS.

If you would prefer US Postal Service (USPS) shipping, please give us a call or email us with this request. USPS to Canada is not included above because the US Postal Service will not ship matches. Therefore, shipments to Canada that include matches must be shipped via UPS. If you are ordering a survival kit, to Canada, which has matches in it, please let us know if you would prefer us to leave out the matches.

If you are ordering a survival kit, to be delivered in Canada, which has matches in it, please let us know if you would prefer us to leave out the matches.
