We ship and it is next day delivery in Iowa and most adjacent states (except Missouri. And some furthest locations require two days). Call us direct to place your order or visit our website. If your product freezes in transit, please let it defrost by sitting at room temperature and then stir well. A single freezing should not damage quality. Please keep your paint and wax in climatized conditions – not in unheated garages or buildings.  Repeated freezing and thawing will damage quality.
