- Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations.
When you place an order, we will estimate shipping costs and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
All products we supply are normally in stock. If a product is not in stock then we will contact you with a planned ship date. Orders received for ground shipping normally ship within 24 hours of receipt. Express shipments will ship same day if received before 1.00 pm CST. We will always try to ship express shipments received after 1.00 pm CST but can not guarantee that they will ship that day. If not, then they will ship on the next business day.
Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.

Types of Returns and What You Can Expect

We will then re-ship the correct product for the applicable shipping fees plus a 20% re-stock fee to cover the cost of the return. If the original packaging has been damaged please notify the customer service representative when you initiate the return.
Damaged or Lost Shipment Claims
