We ship all packages U.S Priority Mail or FedEx Ground unless prior arrangements are made. We have no control over the carriers or their suggested arrival times. We apologize for any inconvenience or delays, but we have no way of controlling packages once they leave our building.

All orders are usually shipped within 48 hours of receipt, in the order they are received. Actual shipping time may take 2 to 10 days to receive thereafter, depending on distance.

International Orders
International, Hawaii, Alaska, or express orders must order by phone due to increased shipping costs. The cost is based on delivery location, speed of delivery, and size and weight of the package. Let us know what items you want to order and where you want us to ship them and we can give you a free quote.

International Shipping prices are higher than the domestic shipping rates charged by our shopping cart. If you place the order online we will need to collect the difference before the items are shipped.

We have no control over Postal Carriers, Customs or suggested arrival times. Although the U.S. Postal Service quotes air mail arrival within 7 to 14 days, it may take much longer, depending on your country’s Customs Officials and postal routes. The price difference between air and ground rate only guarantees the time of arrival to the shipping country’s postal system. We also have no control over customs fees or duties charged by your country. We apologize for any inconvenience or delays, but unfortunately they are beyond our control.

Returns
All items ordered from us can be returned for refund within 14 days of purchase. All returns must include a copy of our invoice or order form. Returned items must be in the condition you received them.

Shipping charges are non-refundable. (Exception: defective or mis-shipped merchandise will be replaced or fully refunded.)
