Amazing what can happen in just a day

We get a lot of comments about how fast orders arrive.  Part of the formula is a dedicated effort to process orders as soon as they come-in, but we cannot take all of the credit.  Our shipping partners, including UPS and FedEx, have made major improvements in shipping times over the past 5 to 10 years.

Here are just some of the major cities that are only one (1) day away from BMI Supply's warehouse using Ground level service:
  • New York City
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Washington, DC
  • Boston, MA
  • Portland, ME
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Buffalo, NY

We do our best each business day to ship out all in-stock orders that hit our desks by 3:00pm eastern (sometimes even later, just ask!).  That means next day Ground shipping for lots of you in Northeast and Mid-Atlantic cities (and 'burbs, of course).  In just two (2) days, we hit Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Charlotte, and many other locations.

Here is a current UPS Ground shipping map from our zip code.  FedEx is similar and covers a couple of the locations mentioned above.

What's on our shelf?
  A little bit of most everything.  Make that a lot of most everything.  Rosco/GAM/LEE gel sheets, Off-Broadway and SuperSat paint, gaff tape, spike tape, lamps, Source 4s, rigging hardware, aircraft cable, stage hardware, and plenty more.
