Shipping Answers

  • When will my order ship?
    • Your order ships the same day if it is received before 2:30PM EST on a business day.
    • Orders received after 2:30PM on Friday and weekend orders ship on Monday.
    • Orders received on a Holidays ship the following business day.
  • When will I recieve my order?
    • You have a ship confirmation email with your Tracking Number. Just open that email and click on the Tracking Number
    • Note: Most questions relate to slow USPS 1st class mail deliveries. We can not predict USPS delivery times! The USPS can sometimes take 10 to 14 business days because of winter snow storms and extremely heavy mail volumes in Dec and Jan.

    • UPS OVERNIGHT is delivered the next business day if your order is placed before 2:00PM. Friday OVERNIGHT orders are delivered on Monday and do not include holidays.

    • UPS 2nd DAY and 3rd DAY are guaranteed, but they do not include Sat, Sun or Holiday deliveries. Start counting days the day AFTER you recieve your tracking number. Thus, a 2nd DAY order placed before 2:00PM on a Monday is delivered on Wed, but orders received after 2:00PM would be delivered on Thurs.

    • UPS GROUND is not guaranteed. We ship from New York and Nevada so states neighboring NY and NV will receive shipment the next business day! If you are not a neighboring state, you will receive a ground shipment within 3 business days.

    • USPS Priority Mail is not guaranteed nor trackable. In our experience, deliveries times vary widely. As a guideline allow 3-5 business days, however it sometimes takes longer. States closer to NY and NV will receive deliveries faster.

    • USPS 1st Class mail is not guaranteed nor trackable. Deliveries vary widely. As a guideline, allow 5-10 business days, though they sometimes take longer due to winter storms and heavy mail volumes in Dec and Jan. States closer to NY and NV will receive deliveries faster.


    I did not recieve an e-mail reciept…
    • There are two reasons for this:

      1. There was a typo in your e-mail address. If you think you typed you e-mail address wrong, send us an e-mail and we will resend your reseipt.

      2. You have a spam blocker that is blocking e-mail from pinewoodpro.com. Check your spam e-mail box to see if your e-mail receipt is there.


    I did not recieve my order, what should I do?
    • Note that it will take time to send you another package, so it is faster if we locate the original package.
    • The following are the things that I've found cause lost orders:

      1. First, if you ordered via USPS regular mail or Priority mail, it can sometimes take a week to 10 days to receive a package! Severe weather conditions in trucking routes will delay the mail. Heavy volumes the week before and week after Christmas will delay mail deliveries.

      2. Check your receipt. Are your shipping address and zip code correct? If not, you will not receive the replacement package either! Call us to correct your address.

      3. Next verify that someone else in the household, or a neighbor hasn't received your package.

      4. Verify that the dog hasn't taken the package to his favorite hiding place (this has happened!)

    There is a mistake in my order, what should I do?
    • Check your receipt to be sure you ordered the correct items and quantity.
    • If you verified the error, call us for a replacement.


    How do I return unused items? (Must be within 60 days of purchase)
    • Repackage the item and be sure to include a note explaining why you are returning the item so we know if there was a product defect or some other reason. Include the packing slip or order number so we can trace your order to issue credit.

Payment Questions

    My first payment failed, so I re-entered information and the order went through. Now it appears that I was charged twice.
    • You were not charged twice. Your bank, not Pinewood Pro, puts a temporary hold on funds from failed transactions. Your bank will release the funds automatically within a few days. There is nothing for you to do and nothing for Pinewood Pro to do.

    • If your transaction fail, your bank will put a temporary hold on the failed transaction! Be patient. You were not charged twice. Your bank will clear the temporary hold automatically in a few days. (Note that Pinewood Pro has no control over this temporary hold.)

      Tips & Hints

      A lathed wheel means the wheel was turned at a high speed and "sanded" with a cutting tool. Lathed Wheels are perfectly tuned around the axis of rotation giving you the highest performance.

      lubes Tip

      When adding Nyoil to your axles, "less is more"! Only use one or two drops per axle and wipe off any excess oil. The oil should not be run down your axle.

      building Hint

      Wood filler is your best friend when it comes to building a pinewood derby car. Use wood filler to fill holes, gouges and other cutting mistakes. You can even use it to add a bubble, racer cockpit, spoiler, etc.
