Order Status

How do I track my order?

Tactical Distributors uses the UPS Quantum View System which allows us to provide proactive notification to our customers when their shipments are on the way. This information will not be available until an order has shipped. The UPS tracking systems may not provide feedback on the package location for 12-24 hours after that.

How long will it take for me to receive my package?

Orders are usually processed in 1-3 business days. Backorders or shipments from warehouses other than the Tactical Distributors location in Virginia Beach, Va, may lengthen the time for fulfillment. Depending upon the destination and shipping method, the time for a package to arrive varies. Orders delivered outside the United States will usually experience delays from local Customs Agencies. When available, a tracking number will be provided to the customer and should appear in the order status after the order has shipped. Most packages cannot be tracked after leaving the United States. When a customer suspects that their package has been lost in shipping they should contact customer service.

How long will it take to process my order?

Orders in by 3:30 EST M-F will be processed and sent out the same day. Orders placed after 3:30 PM EST time will not be processed until the following business day. Orders placed on Friday after 3:30 PM EST time will not be processed until Monday or the following business day. In instances where items are backordered, the customer will be notified and given the option to have their order shipped together or in separate shipments as backordered items become available. Orders fulfilled from locations other than the Tactical Distributors warehouse located in Virginia Beach, Va, may occasionally require additional time for processing; where this is known to exceed 3 business days, the customer will be notified.

When will my backorder arrive?

The duration that products are backordered depends upon the product and the manufacturer. In general items are backordered for less than 2 weeks, however in some instances, with high demand or difficult to obtain products, more time may be necessary--particularly on items being purchased in high volume by the United States military. The estimated arrival date is not always known, but feel free to contact customer service who will do their best to provide you with information.


How do I return products?

Items may be returned in new and unopened condition within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. To receive your RMA please contact the customer service department. Tactical Distributors does not reimburse return shipping expenses on correctly shipped orders. All returns must have an authorization number written on the outside of the box in order to be processed. Returns without an authorization number will be returned to sender.

What do I do if product is damaged when I receive it?

If you receive a package with damaged products, please contact Tactical Distributors customer service at your earliest convience. As with all returns, Tactical Distributors, an RMA must be issued by customer service before products are returned.

What is Free Upgraded Shipping?

We get great overnight rates so we would like to pass them along to you at no extra charge. In most case we can upgrade your ground package to overnight.
