  • Earliest delivery times will be 12:30 PM
  • There are no guarantees on next day service
  • Expect longer shipping times on standard delivery service
  • Standard holiday closures will apply
Reminders from Hawk:
  • Winter weather can be challenging for shipping water-based products
  • Bring water-based products to room temperature as soon as possible
  • Hawk will be closed for the holidays on November 26-27, December 24-25, and will be accepting orders on December 30 but will not be shipping
