Dropship Orders = Ships from Manufacturer
Rutabaga partners with several manufacturers who will ship purchases directly to customers. This ensures the highest availability of a wide range of products. In some cases, shipping charges are increased for dropship items. Please be assured that we only charge the customer what we actually pay in shipping costs. Details on our dropship partners are below.
AquaBound & Bending Branches
Paddles from these manufacturers are all built to order. As soon as we forward your order to them, a real person in the AquaBound/Bending Branches factory Osceola, WI, will start preparing your paddle. These paddles are typically built within a week and ship shortly thereafter. Sometimes shipping windows are slightly longer than our loyal paddlers are used to, but Rutabaga and our partners do everything possible to ensure paddles ship timely and perform perfectly. Thank you for your patience and thank you for supporting American manufacturing.
