Orders to Short-Term Addresses (Hotel, Vacations, Airbnb, a Friend's address...):
When shipping to these addresses, please allow enough buffer time to allow for occasional shipping delays through USPS, or based on time of your order or distance from Arizona. If you are no longer at the address, instruct the residence to mark the package as "return to sender" or to forward it to your subsequent address. Double and triple check that the address is formatted correctly.
