Standard Service

Standard Service is the economical choice for non-time-critical shipments. Web Only – Buy Now is considered Standard service. Standard Service packages are shipped on a space-available basis.


All of our shipments travel under our coaches and share the cargo space with passenger luggage.
Based on capacity, room can be a commodity. Standard Service shipments can potentially be deferred so that passenger luggage and Priority Service shipments may travel unimpeded. Standard service shipments do not always go out on the next bus, do not always stay on the same schedule, and in the case of multiple pieces, do not always travel together. 

Please see the below guidelines for regular transit times by mileage. All transit time days listed are business days (Monday – Friday).

These guidelines in no way constitutes a guarantee.
