- Shipping & Delivery
IPTrains LLC ships most products except signal bridges worldwide. The risk of loss and title for all merchandise ordered on this Web site pass to you when the merchandise is delivered to the shipping carrier. Our default shipping policy is via USPS however you may elect to ship by UPS.
Payment: If you use PayPal your card you will be charged at purchase time. If you'd prefer to pay when we are ready to ship the item then use the 'print and call' option from the payment choices. We will fabricate your order and notify you when it is ready for shipping and send you and invoice with instructions for making payment by PayPal at that time. Since IPTrains is a 'spare time' busines and we don't have a lot of that, we suggest that you use the print and call payment option for orders over $100. We do make a good faith effort to get orders out in a reasonable time frame but life does get in the way on occasion.
Deposits: For orders of $150 or more with the print and call payment option we do require a 30% 'good faith' deposit. Use the 'print and call' option and we'll contact you with with deposit instructions. Once we receive your deposit we'll begin work on your order.
Signal lead times: Signals have a 10 to 20 business day lead time as they are fabricated to your order in our in house shops. Signals with our default APC interface normally only require 10 business days, signals with specialized interfaces (DigiTrax and DCCBitSwitch) require up to 30 business days as we need to build the interface.
Video products lead times: Although we do keep substantial inventory, some of our Trainvision items come from off shore sources and can take up to three weeks to replenish when stock runs low. We will allow a back order on these items. We make every effort to keep our inventory data correct, that means if the store shows an item as 'in stock' it normally is. If this proves not to be the case, we will contact you with an estimated lead time and get your concurrence before processing your order. As always We do not normally charge you (except for deposits) until an item ships unless you are paying with PayPal.
Signal Bridge lead times: Signal bridge lead times run from 10 to 60 days depending on the type of bridge ordered and our stock levels. In general, welding is faster than brazing so steel bridges will be quicker.
Advance orders From time to time we will announce new items along with their projected availability date. You may advance order these items if you wish and we will not charge your card until the items ships. However, see the PayPal exception below
PayPal orders are charged at order time regardless of stock levels because of the nature of the PayPal transaction. If you want to take advantage of our general 'we don't charge until we ship' policy, use our print and call payment method. We have no control over this, it is the nature of the PayPal service.
PayPal customers, if you want to enter a discount coupon do not select the PayPal icon in the first checkout screen, you will be given another chance later in the process. Move to the final checkout screen, enter your coupon code, apply it and then select PayPal as the payment method.
