Address Requirements

If you have a PO Box, please enter both that and your complete physical address in the shipping address section to ensure delivery. Avoid delays and surcharges, by providing a correct and complete shipping address including apartment, suite, or floor number.

Special Shipping Requests Void Insurance

Please know a special delivery request written on your package voids the insurance and if it goes missing, even if it was scanned delivered, the carrier will not refund or replace the order. You assume liability for non-delivery when you request the package be left at a specific location, asking the carrier to not ring the bell or otherwise requesting the carrier deviate from their normal course of action.

We do not refund shipping on cancelled, refused or returned orders. Your merchandise refund may be reduced by the actual shipping costs.
