Shipping and Returns
Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive regarding online orders. If you have a question that is not asked here, please do contact us.
When do you process online orders?
Typically, orders are processed within 24 hours of the time they were placed and shipped within 48 hours with a few exceptions. These include whether the item is in stock or whether the item is a drop shipped by the manufacturer. We will make every effort to process your order as soon as we receive it.
What if an item I have ordered is out of stock?
Although we make every effort to maintain stock and satisfy our customers, occasionally we are out of certain items. If an item is temporarily out of stock, we'll email you with a backorder notification, which tells when you can expect to receive the item. If we are permanently out of stock on an item that you've ordered, we will notify you via email and refund you. Please email us with any questions about out-of-stock items.
What is my guarantee on purchases?
We want you to love what you ordered. However, if something isn't right, let us know. We stand behind our products and pride ourselves on our service to you.
