Availability & Shipping

If you see “Pre-Order” on your cart button, it means SUVA is waiting for a restock and will either ship when it arrives or drop-ship your item from the manufacturer depending on which will arrive to you sooner. After you receive tracking numbers, USPS shipments are often dropped off twice per business day while UPS shipments are picked up M-F, late-morning ET. Check your item's page to ensure it is something SUVA stocks and allow 1-2 business days for the delivery company to activate tracking in their systems.
