Shipping and Delivery
As we all know shipping vape products has become...something of an issue. If you are unaware, the omnibus budget bill passed at the end of 2020 put strict restrictions on shipping vape products. You can read more about that here.
With that bill, it essentially banned the shipping of vape products. With the exception of B2B (our distros to us and for those carriers that were willing to abide by the new regulations. No major carrier has elected to do that.) There are no major carriers(Fedex, UPS, USPS, DHL) that will ship vape products to a customer. None.
Due to registrations and taxes required from other states, Vape Militia will only be shipping within the state of Texas. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no other option that will allow us to ship outside the state. When and if, one comes available we will update. If you are outside the state of Texas, please contact us and we can provide a referral to a shop local to you.
Currently, there are not many options for shipping companies to deliver vape products to customers, regardless of state. Most are known as local couriers. If you're thinking to yourself what about Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc...we thought that too...however, it would easily triple if not quadruple the cost of USPS shipping. We did not think that was a feasible option. We do have 2 solutions.
The one local courier we know will is Lonestar Overnight (LSO). The delivery time is between 1 and 3 days, and the amount is $23 to $30 depending on your location. If you are in the Houston metro area, including Katy, Cypress, Sugarland, etc. The shipping cost is about $23.
Due to this increase in shipping pricing our minimum order for free shipping from LSO has been increased to $100. If you are placing an order for less than $100, please consider our Pod Delivery option, more info below.
Because we believe in full transparency, we will break things down a bit for you.
Reasons for the increase in shipping.
1. The base rate from LSO is $11. USPS was $8.
2. Adult signature is REQUIRED and is $7. Even with USPS this is an additional $6.90 fee.
3. LSO also charges for residential delivery, as they are not a residential delivery company. They are more of a commercial delivery company, ie office buildings, or other businesses. This is a $5 fee.
4. Depending on your location there will be a LSO fuel surcharge and subject to change based on fuel prices. If you're in the Houston metro area, this is about $1. If you are in El Paso...it's about $4 at the current rate.
