How are your shipping rates calculated?
We strive to provide our customers with the cheapest rates possible for shipping orders. Our rates are pulled directly from our carrier's systems and closely match our costs to ship the package to you. We do not alter these rates, and if you are quoted a lesser amount than what is required of us to ship the package, we pay for the difference.
Estimated Delivery Times
During checkout, most services will return an estimated delivery date. These dates, like the rates themselves, are generated by the respective carrier. Please not that these dates are estimates and are subject to change based on weather conditions, carrier issues, accidents, etc. We cannot control issues with the carrier and are unable to refund any shipping costs if the package is lost due to a carrier issue.
Some services, such as UPS Next Day Air, have guaranteed delivery dates and times. In an event that your package does not arrive within the guaranteed window, please contact us and we will work with you to get the issue resolved.
Do you require a signature for delivery?
Orders over $750 may require a signature upon delivery. At all times, signature requirement is sometimes subject to the driver who is delivering the package at that time.
If your package requires a signature from UPS, you can use UPS My Choice to waive the signature requirement in most cases.
Where can I ship my order to?
Shipping address requirements vary based on the type of payment used.
- Credit Cards - Shipping address must match the billing address that is associated with your credit card.
- PayPal - All PayPal orders must ship to the confirmed address that is associated with your PayPal account.
To ensure the validity of each transaction and for the safety of ourselves and our customers, the above rules apply. If you need to ship to a different address than is associated with your method of payment, please contact us first. UPS customers can usually change the delivery location of their package using UPS My Choice.
If an order is placed with a mismatch of the billing and shipping address, we reserve the right to cancel your order and payment at the time of purchase. We will contact you with the information on how to place your order.
