Shipment Receiving Guidelines

These guidelines must be followed in order to ensure the option of returning any of the products purchased:

1. For insurance purposes, many packages will require a signature.  You must be present to receive, inspect, & sign for your delivery if a signature is required.

2. Before signing/receiving the package:

  • Check to ensure you have received the proper number of packages
  • Check for damaged packaging

3. When signing for the package it is very important to be as detailed and descriptive as possible on the packing slip before you sign. Your signature indicates acceptance, and if you simply sign without inspecting the packaging or its contents, then you are accepting the shipment “as is”.  If you did not receive the proper number of packages or if any items appear as if they could be damaged, make sure you note this prior to signing.  If damages or shortages are not recorded the shipping company will not honour insurance claims and unfortunately, we will not be able to honour our return policy.

4. Immediately unpack all contents to ensure that you were shipped the correct items.  If there are any damages or shortages they must be reported immediately (within 24 hours) using our Return Policy.

Order Turn-around-Time

It is important to us that we ship your purchase as quickly as possible.  We typically ship in-stock orders within 1-4 business days. In some instances when items are thought to be in stock but are not available you will be notified via email of the options available to you prior to your order shipping.  Please note we reserve the right not to ship any orders for any reason.  If your order has a problem and cannot be shipped, we will contact you with a potential resolution.

We ship Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Keeping Track Of Your Order

Once your purchase has been shipped you will be e-mailed a tracking number to check the status of your order. We are committed to providing for you the best possible service, if you have any questions please contact us. Returning/Cancelling Your Order(s)
