Alternatively, if you upgrade your shipping on checkout to Shipping with Tracking, you will get your order quicker and your order will get assigned a tracking number.

Stinky Lockers reserves the right to select the carrier for courier but tracking numbers are assigned on all upgraded shipping orders.
Question: What if it’s been longer than 12 business days delivery for the free shipping? What’s next?

Occasionally, weather and road closures can also delay deliveries. We appreciate your patience during busy times and understand it can be frustrating waiting for your order. Plan ahead and order as early as possible so you can take advantage of free delivery. Alternatively, you do have the option of the shipping upgrade with tracking if you are running short on time.
In the event your order has taken longer than the “estimated” time, we ask for your patience. Please reach out and let us know it has not yet arrived by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
