We ship using USPS,and Fed Ex depending on the most cost effective way. This saves you money. All shipping costs are an estimate, and only actual shipping costs will be charged. In the event that there is an over charge, it will be refunded back to your paypal account. Your tracking number will be supplied after your items have been shipped.
We will ship to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and Canada. Be advised that shipping costs will be expensive to these locations. Be advised that after a shipment leaves the U.S. and is in the hands of the International shipper ARS will not be held responsible for any losses, damages, or refunds. It is up the end user to settle all disputes and claims with the foreign shipping agent. No other International shipping is available. Before you order you must call ARS and find out the total cost including shipping to Puerto Rico, and Canada,as it is different than the web calculator. You will be billed the rest of the shipping cost through Paypal, and it must be paid before your order is shipped.
On certain shipments there may be a customs charge (Canada) on top of the shipping charge, and you will be responsible for that before your order will be delivered. ARS does not charge this and we have no idea what the cost will be as it is calculated at the border, however you are responsible for it before you will receive your order
Any damages, or lost shipments must be handled by the customer, and taken up with USPS, or Fed Ex. ARS will not be held responsible for items damaged in transit.
Shipments are in good order when they leave our warehouse. After shipments are sent out, ARS is no longer liable for what happens to them.
No. All items must be paid for in advance before items are shipped. This actually saves you money, instead of paying C.O.D. fees.

ARS uses Mal's Ecom for a shopping cart, Mal's then sends your order through Paypal. Paypal is the only one who sees your information. Paypal is SSL secured, and you can be rest assured your information is safe. We take your security very serious here at ARS, and for that reason we use Paypal.
ARS accepts orders by mail. However you must call ARS and find out what your total cost will be (including shipping costs), and then mail your order with that amount by check or money order to ARS. You must call ARS for information on how to make out the check or money order. Keep in mind checks will slow your order down as it must clear the bank first before your order is filled.
Most orders are processed same day if the order is made by 2:00 PM EST. Other orders may take up to 72 hours to process. Some orders may take longer due to the circumstances such as dropped shipped from the factory (Certain base antennas), custom orders (Lightning Antennas) 10 meter conversion, or tune ups on radios, mic wiring etc. On out of stock items, you will be contacted, and your money refunded or given the option to wait until the order is back in stock. Under no circumstance does ARS accept any responsibility after the item has been shipped. That responsibility then resides with the shipper, and any late, lost or damged shipments must be taken up with them and not ARS.
