Our mission is to put your school supply order on the road or in the air within 1 to 3 business days after you place your order. In addition to our speedy service, Geddes At Home offers several affordable shipping options to meet nearly every shopper's needs.

In order to ensure that your package is delivered into the right hands, our shipping company requires all packages to be released by a signature. Additionally, we need orders for School and PTA/PTO Accounts to be sent to a fixed school address that serves as both the Billing and Shipping address. If you are interested in placing an order for your School, District, or PTA/PTO, please visit our other site, Raymond Geddes & Company.

Questions on your particular shipment can be directed to 1 (800)-533-6273 or emailed to service@getgeddes.com.
