A signature delivery requirement may or may not be applied to orders based on location and order value at our discretion. Someone age 21 will have to be home to receive the package.  Please have your valid government-issued photo ID ready at the time of delivery.

Non signature required deliveries will be left in a way deemed safe by the delivery driver and you will be responsible for it.

Freight - Oversized items shipped by truck

Please note: We have no control over trucking companies.  We have heard complaints that they can be unorganized, inefficient or rude.  Please try to go with the flow and your shipment should arrive quickly and safely. Usually, things go very smoothly.  Let us know if you need help with anything.

Allow 3 or 4 processing days to crate your order. 

Once the trucking company picks up your shipment, we will have a tracking number for you. Your local delivery driver should (but may not) call you prior to delivery to work out details.

The trucks have a lift gate and the driver can lower the packages to the ground on the street. It is your responsibility from that point. The driver doesn't carry the shipment to the door or inside or set-up, just delivery.

Damage During Freight Shipping:  The most important thing is that if you notice any physical damage, that needs to be noted before the driver leaves. (take pictures for the claim)

If there is damage, you can still sign for the shipment, just make sure to note the damage on the driver's paperwork, before you sign for it. (The driver verifies any damage) That way you are covered for an insurance claim if you need one. If it is not noted on the drivers papers there is no insurance claim possible. Take pictures and Keep All Packaging, crate, etc. until the claim is complete.

International buyers accept full responsibility for all shipping and customs related charges.

Returns:  Buyer pays all shipping charges and insurance. Shipping charges, taxes, duty and any other expenses are not refundable regardless of the reason for return. Refund will be the product cost less 15% handling any charges incurred.

Shipping Method & Delivery Time:  We use USPS priority mail international. Usually it takes 10 days to 2 weeks to arrive.  However, please realize that it can often take up to 30 days or more to clear Customs.  

Loss in shipping: If an order is lost in shipping we will work with the US Post Office to file a claim after their required 30 day waiting period. Once approved, we will send a replacement.

The post office will not run a trace until after 30 days.  If it is lost, your country could require another 30 days to complete their investigation before we can submit a claim.  So, could be 60 days before we are able to issue a refund or ship a replacement.

Customs & Duty Taxes: You assume all responsibility for taxes and customs/importation related matters. The customs service in your country may delay and add tax to the package. If you do not claim the package it is destroyed and sale is final. Please contact the Customs service in your country to see what to expect. There may be regulations regarding imported products.
