If the order has already been processed or shipped, we are unable to cancel it for you. We process orders in under 24 hours to ensure fast shipping times for our customers.
Do you ship orders to APO/FPO/DPO addresses? Yes, we ship orders to military mailing addresses (APO/FPO/DPO). However, these addresses may not be subject to normal shipping times. Delivery speeds to these military mailing addresses vary. Wondering about shipping times? Go through the checkout process, put in your military address and you’ll see the available shipping times posted.
How do I check the status of my order? Once we’ve shipped your purchase, you’ll receive a confirmation email from us. Please make sure to keep the confirmation email so you can find your order status page.
It’s been a few days, why don’t I have a tracking number yet? For our Standard Shipping rate (up to 4-6 business days), we sometimes only receive a tracking number a few days before the order is delivered. If you placed an order with us and haven’t received a tracking number after a few days, don’t worry! We will update you with the tracking number as soon as we receive it from our fulfillment team.
I want to change something on my order. What can I do? Make sure to contact us right away and we will try to help!
I still haven’t received my order and I’m getting worried. What’s going on? Make sure you’ve waited the proper amount of days. If you placed an order with Standard Shipping (4-6 business days), please make sure to take the weekend or public holidays into account. Please also note that a shipment will leave (latest) by the next day. For example, if you place an order on a Sunday, the package will only go out Monday (Day 1). The package should arrive between Wednesday (Day 3) or the following Monday (Day 6). If this same order was placed on a Wednesday, it will be shipped on Thursday (Day 1). Since the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) does not count, the package should arrive between Tuesday (Day 4) and Thursday (Day 6) of the following week.
If you place an order with the Expedited Shipping speed (3 days), you should receive a tracking number within a day or two of placing your order. This shipping speed does not take business days into account. For example, an order placed on a Thursday will ship on Friday (Day 1) and arrive Sunday (Day 3).
What if I’ve only received part of my order? Sometimes, our shipping partners decide to split up orders (especially larger orders) into multiple packages. If you receive only part of your order, please be patient and wait until the end of the day. Usually, the second package shows up after a few hours. If it is still very early into the delivery window, wait a few more days. The rest of the package should arrive by the end of the delivery window. If for some reason your order still has not arrived, contact us and we will investigate.
How will my order be shipped? Our shipping partners help us decide the most efficient routes and carriers for each order. Orders are usually shipped by either USPS, FedEx or UPS.
What is the cost of shipping in the US? Shipping costs depend on whether you choose Standard delivery or Expedited delivery. Below is a breakdown of the shipping costs for orders below and above $50:
Orders Below $50
Orders Above $50
Standard (4-6 Business Days)
Expedited (3 Days)
How long does shipping take (within the US)? Orders sent via Standard Speed have a delivery estimate of 4 to 6 business days. If you’ve opted for the Expedited Speed, expect your order to arrive within 3 days. For Alaskan and Hawaiian customers, we can only offer a 5 to 10 business day delivery window.
Does EzPacking ship internationally? Yes! EzPacking ships to international destinations around the globe including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Europe and certain countries in the Middle East and Asia. We are constantly adding countries to our list. If you don’t live in one of the countries/regions listed above, go through the checkout process and see if the website allows you to place an order. If the website does not allow you to, it probably means we don’t have your country set up yet. Contact Us and we can try to adjust the settings for you!
Is international shipping reliable? We do our shipping with USPS (United States Postal Service). They are the national carrier in the United States and are great! However, since they are a national carrier, they do not handle delivery abroad. When we ship internationally via USPS, they will handle sending the package to your host country. It is the the responsibility of your country’s national carrier to delivery the package to you. We have had no problems sending packages to Canada, Australia, and the EU. However, if your national carrier is unreliable, then we do not recommend placing an order on our website. Unfortunately, we cannot send packages via DHL, UPS or Fedex.
Are there additional costs for international shipping? Depending on your country, there might be additional levied taxes, duties and custom fees. The total costs you see on our website only includes the product price and shipping fee. Customers are responsible for any customs or duties fees (if any). Make sure to read through your country’s customs website to avoid any surprises.
What is the cost of international shipping? We use a real time shipping calculator to get the most efficient shipping prices possible. To find accurate pricing information, add items to your cart and go through the checkout process to see real time rates.
How long does international shipping take? Delivery speeds vary based on the country and the shipping speed. For most countries, we have the following speeds: 1. First Class International (7-21 business days) 2. Priority Mail (6-10 business days) and 3. Priority Mail Express (3-5 business days).

OUR RECOMMENDED SUITCASES FOR PACKING CUBES
What suitcase should I use for the Starter Set? Our Starter Set fits in most standard size carry on suitcases (45” total linear dimensions). We recommend the Samsonite Advena Expandable Softside 20 Inch Luggage for a basic but functional carry on suitcase. It fits our packing cube set of four perfectly when they’re stacked vertically. The Amazon Basics Hardside Spinner 20 Inch Luggage is an affordable but durable option because of the hardshell case. It also fits our packing cube set of four perfectly when they’re stacked horizontally (or laid flat). Click here to learn why we recommend these carry on suitcases.
What suitcase should I use for the Complete Bundle? Our Complete Bundle fits in most standard size checked luggages (62” total linear dimensions). The Samsonite Advena Expandable Softside 29 Inch Luggage is a good option for a lightweight suitcase that fits our Complete Bundle, stacked vertically with the handles facing up. Another option is the Amazon Basics Hardside Spinner Luggage for our cubes stacked horizontally (or laid flat). Click here to learn why we recommend these checked suitcases.
Which cube sizes can fit in a duffel bag? It depends on the type of duffel bag. For a weekender duffel bag, it can fit 1 each of our extra small cube, small cube and medium cube. For a rolling duffel bag, it can fit 1 set of our Complete Bundle or up to 2 sets of our Starter Set. Click here to read about our recommended weekender and rolling duffel bag.
I’m going on a backpacking trip! Which backpacks are the best for packing cubes? Our extra small cube, small cube and medium cube can fit in most backpacking backpacks (40 to 45 liters). For backpacking backpacks, it’s best to measure your torso height before deciding on a specific size. The Osprey Farpoint 40 Liter Travel Backpack is popular among backpackers and is also our top recommendation! A good budget option is the Kelty Redwing 44 Liter Backpack. Click here to find out why we love and recommend these backpacks for backpacking.
I need a heavy duty backpack for hiking! Which backpacks are the best for packing cubes? Since hiking backpacks are larger (50 to 70 liters), they can fit 2 to 3 sets of our extra small cube, small cube and medium cube. When deciding on a hiking backpack, look for features like mesh back panels, padded support and U-shaped zippering that will make your treks more comfy. Click here to find out our recommended heavy duty hiking backpacks.
