HOW MUCH IS SHIPPING?
FREE economy shipping (5 to 8 business days) for orders over $150.00
For all other domestic orders, we offer economy or standard shipping (3 to 4 business days) starting at $5.00, based on package weight. All expedited shipping options are based on courier costs.
We offer international shipping via UPS and DHL. All international shipping costs are calculated by weight and service selected at checkout.
CAN I CHANGE THE SHIPPING ADDRESS?
For orders placed online, we do provide the option to ship to an address different from the billing address. However, for security reasons, this service is discretionary. We reserve the right to only ship to the billing address or to verify details with our customers before shipping to a different address.
If you have made a mistake with your shipping details, please contact us via email or telephone, and we will try to amend them.
Please note that we can make no guarantees to change addresses before shipping. If an order has been shipped, we cannot amend the shipping address.
Customs and import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.
Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges and cannot tell you what the cost might be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.
The customer must take full liability for any parcels returned to us due to unpaid customs charges. Postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees will all be deductible from any refund due.
HOW LONG DOES SHIPPING TAKE?
We aim to process all orders as soon as possible. Orders generally ship within 24-48 hours depending on when the order was placed.
CAN I TRACK MY PARCEL?
Yes, it does not have to be the addressee. The signature is electronically logged for security reasons. Any signature at the address will be accepted as proof of delivery.
WHAT IF I'M NOT HOME WHEN IT'S DELIVERED?
If delivery is attempted unsuccessfully, the courier will leave a notice detailing how to proceed with regard to re-delivery or collection. They will usually re-attempt delivery before returning your parcel to our store. Please contact us about any difficulties collecting a package as soon as possible.
You will receive a dispatch confirmation email from us once your order has been shipped. This email will also contain your tracking information.
CUSTOMS HAVE ASKED ME FOR FURTHER INFORMATION. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Each country has its own unique import procedures, which are subject to change. If you have an order held in customs, please contact us via email with your tracking number. We will do our very best to help resolve the matter as swiftly as possible.
If you are not fully happy with the goods you have received, you can return them to us within 14 days of receipt, providing they are in the original resalable condition.
Once returned you will be entitled to receive an exchange or a refund, which will not include the cost of the original postage and packaging. We are not able to refund or exchange items that appear to have been worn, washed, or are not in original condition.
