Shipping and Returns


Shipping & Returns

It is our goal to get you your orders as quickly as we can. Orders are processed in 1 business day and are usually shipped same day or next day.   Generally our manufacturers do ship the same day order is received or following day. Items that Ship directly from the manufacturer may take longer depending on the manufacturer’s product availability and schedule of shipment. Some items are configured to the order and may take several extra days to complete. Orders that ship directly from the manufacturer may be shipped via a different shipping method than the method selected. Mixed manufacturer orders may ship separately  from different locations and have separate tracking. Generally our manufacturers do ship the same day order is received or following day. If you selected expedited shipping and paid a premium for that service and we are unable to provide expedited shipping you will be refunded the difference in shipping costs.

The vast majority of all orders ship the same business day if ordered before noon PST, otherwise the next business day.
