IMPORTANT SHIPPING & ORDER INFORMATION:
1) Occasionally, shipping costs may need to be adjusted.
2) All orders are reviewed for actual carrier shipping charges. Some charges will be lowered before final processing.
The carriers we use are FedEx and US Postal Service. In many cases we can lower your shipping cost and get your order to you faster by changing from one carrier to another. If you select FedEx and we can get your order to you faster and cheaper by swithcing to the US Postal service, we will make that change and discount your shipping costs when processing your order.
If you do not want us to switch from the method you choose, for whatever reason, please let us know by using the "Special Instructions" box during checkout. If you do not receive mail at your home address and use a post office box, please include that information.
3) Customers with orders for delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, or Internationally will be emailed their actual shipping cost. Approval is required by return email or phone.
4) Use the "Shipping Instructions" box near the bottom of the checkout page to inform us of any order specifics, such as delivery information, item color, etc.
5) After your order is processed, in stock items are normally shipped within 1-2 business days.
Back ordered items normally are back in stock within 10 days.
Our policy is to wait for any back-ordered items to arrive and ship the entire order at one time.
Please call if you do not want to wait for the back ordered items or if you would like to substitute another item.
New shipping charges will be added to the back ordered item(s) if shipped separately.
6) Under normal conditions you should receive your order within 7 days and most times faster. If you do not receive your order within 10 days, please let us know immediately.
NOTE: We cannot be responsible for non-delivery of orders or re-shipment costs as long as we ship your order on time. Once your order ships we all have to rely on the carrier to do their job. There is always a possibility that a package could get lost. We will do our very best to get your order to you on time.
