Atlantahobby.com reserves the right to choose the most effective form of shipping for your package. We only use couriers that have a tracking system or a delivery confirmation system. For example, FedEx and UPS. You will be able to go to their respective websites and track your package. For USPS, a "Delivery Confirmation Number" is issued, which will only allow customers to see when the order has shipped and when it has been delivered. At this time the USPS system is not capable of tracking the package like the other couriers mentioned, but you can visit their website for this information (www.usps.com).
