    if i picked UPS ground and it said 3-7 days, about how long is that actually gonna take? i only ask cause in past dealings with HTS, my packages were all a week or two later than the days i was told they would get here-so how accurate is BBTS?

    depends on when you purchased as it takes 24-48 hrs to pack it then ship so 10 days from when you paid(ups never takes 3 days unless you are within a few states of them)

    Sometimes it's really fast. I've had them send me the shipping notice 2 or 3 hours after placing an order. Depends on how busy they are I suppose.

    It depends on how quickly it leaves their warehouse, and how far away for said warehouse it's being shipped too.

    I think UPS usually gets stuff delivered within 5 business days of it being shipped.

    I have found BBTS to always ship faster than HTS

    Cannot differentiate between BBTS and HTS. But BBTS is outstanding.

    I don't know I wouldn't UPS if you were paying me to have it shipped by them.

    I paid for Sentinel Prime, Swoop, and Ultra Magnus on the Friday evening that the Deluxes arrived (got the notice about 8:30 that night), had a warehouse/shipping notification Monday afternoon, didn't find out it had shipped until it had already left their state and was half way through the trip. Got it Thursday that week.

    Then other times, from start to finish, it took a total of 10-12 days. It all depends on what day of the week, their work load and when they can get to your shipment. However, due to their reliability, they generally have orders in your hand in about a week's time, tops.

    BBTS is very accurate on their shipping times. It usually takes no more than 5 days for me to get my stuff via ups ground and I live all the way down in south Texas.

    I can tell you, the important thing is, they always arrive! and if you have any issue they work fast to solve it. I had an issue with my Universe Silverbolt, they shipped me Onslaught instead which I had also ordered from amazon, so I ended with 2 Onslaught, but anyways, I didnt had to send them that item back and they shipped my Silvebolt at their expense. Superb service I say.

    Well, once you order you get an order confirmation and than it'll go to their warehouse for packing. Once it's out of their warehouse you'll get a shipment notification, however, sometimes it can stay in their warehouse a day or two if they're really busy (like at Christmas time... though they tend to be faster that time of year), however, once you get a shipment notification you should get it within the time that they say the shipment should take. I live down here in Florida and I always have my stuff within 5 to 6 days depending on how early in the day the package was picked up by the UPS guy.

    Honestly, BBTS is very reliable compared to HTS and, another thing that you don't have to worry about with BBTS, is that they actual use packing materials. Anytime I've ever ordered from HTS I've only once had them put in some packing materials... and then it was only to fill out the top of the package they sent Blitzwing in... with BBTS you can always count on your items being very very protected with bubble wrap, air bags and on a few occasions I've seen them use packing foam (when I ordered some miniature statues from them).

    If given the option, it's my choice every time.

    Depends where you are. I prefer ordering from BBTS because they are in Wisconsin, and so am I, so when they ship, I ususally get it the next day, which is really nice.

    I'd say Monday at the very earliest, and thats if its shipped out Wednesday.

    In my experience with BBTS they have very accurate shipping estimates.
    International seems to be an estimated 7-21 days. Both packages I've gotten from them so far have arrived on either the 7th or 8th day.

    I ordered something last Wednesday and I recieved it last Friday. It all depends on distance and how busy they are, so you may have similar results or it could take longer.
