Shipping & Delivery

Macs4u.com uses the best carriers in the business to make sure your refurbished Mac order gets to you on time. We use mostly Fedex as they offer faster Ground shipping and lower prices on Express shipping.

Signature on delivery

We ship fully insured. Orders over $100 require a signature upon delivery. You will receive a tracking number via email once your item is ready to leave.

When placing an order:

Life is busy and to coordinate deliveries can be a challenge. This is why we are happy to provide our clients with the ability to ship to a different/secondary address than your billing address. When placing an order, please be sure to provide different ship to addresses from the get go, as we are not able to change them once the order is placed.

Depending on the payment option selected, an alternative ship to address needs to be entered when placing the order. A quick verification from our security team might delay the order slightly.

Credit cards: Be sure to enter the different address into the ship-to field before placing the order. Address changes after an order has been placed will need additional time for verification.
Paypal: During the Paypal check-out process be sure to designate the different ship-to address. It is easy to add additional addresses to your PayPal account. We will only ship to the address listed on the Paypal transaction (Paypal requirement). No forwarding to a Fedex location is possible.
AFFIRM: During the payment process, the delivery address needs to be referenced. Any changes to the delivery address need to be approved by AFFIRM. Please allow 24 hours for the confirmation.

Delivery options after order has been placed:

Here are the options we can recommend If your schedule changed and you were not able to receive the shipment as planned:
- Go to Fedex.com personal delivery option and set-up an account. In most parts of the US Fedex does provide scheduled delivery option appointments. So you can schedule a convenient time for you.
- Fedex will hold delivery to your address, so you can schedule a later delivery date if needed.
- Depending on the form of payment used for your purchase, we might be able to have the package re-routed to a Fedex location. Please contact us to find out more.
- Unsuccessful delivery attempts: Fedex will attempt 3 times to deliver your package to the shipping address listed on your order. After the third time Fedex will return the package back to us (Fedex rules - not ours), so please be sure to be in touch with us so that we can assist in getting this product delivered to you. If the package is returned to us instead, we will have to pass the incurred return shipping fees on to the client.

Delivery Time

Shortly after your refurbished Mac order is placed, you will receive an Order Acknowledgement email to confirm order details, including shipping and delivery estimates for each item. Once your item is ready for shipment, you will receive a Shipment Notification email with carrier and tracking information. Detailed tracking information from Fedex may take up to 24 hours to become available online. 

Delivery estimates

The 'Ships' timeframe is an estimate of when the item will prepare for shipment and ship. The items on your order will ship as they become available.
•    Items that ship within "24 hours" are estimated to ship the same or following business day.
•    Items with longer estimates within the timeframe indicated (e.g., 5-7 business days).
•    Custom-configuring your Mac may take additional time to prepare for shipment, and will increase the 'Ships' timeframe. 
•    Shipping time is based on business days and exclude holidays and weekends. 

The 'Delivery' timeframe is an estimate of when the item will be delivered to your shipping address after it ships. When you select expedited shipping, your item will take the same amount of time to prepare for shipment ('Ships'), but will expedite the time it takes to deliver to your doorstep ('Delivers').
All estimates are based on business days.
