    1. My Order Status is "Processing." What does "Processing" mean?

      Processing: We have received your order and it is processing through our system. This process involves approving the charges to your credit card, packing the item in our warehouse and ticketing the package for shipment or sending the order to the Manufacturer for Drop Shipment. Processing generally completes in 1 Business Day.

    1. Can I Request Expedited Shipping on Drop-shipped Items (Items that aren't listed as 'In Stock')?

      Expedited shipping is not available. Most drop-shipped merchandise is shipped via carrier, which means that tracking information is not available. We apologize for the inconvenience. Large and bulky delayed shipped merchandise is shipped via a freight line.

    1. When will I receive a Tracking Number?

      All online orders that include a valid e-mail address will be sent an order acknowledgement. When the order is shipped from our warehouse or from the Manufacturer's Facility* (*Drop-Shipped Items not listed as 1 week or less lead time) you will receive a shipping confirmation via email to inform you of your order status. Your shipping confirmation will include ship date, carrier and tracking number if applicable. Please allow up to 24 hours after shipment for your tracking number to be activated. Tracking numbers on packages shipped via Priority Mail may take 1-2 business days from the date the package was shipped before they are activated. Standard delivery time for most orders is 3-10 business days.

      Unfortunately, your Shipping Notification Email will not reflect shipping information on drop-shipped merchandise. Drop-shipped merchandise is shipped directly from the vendor and tracking information is sometimes unavailable due to bulky items.

    1. I need to Return an Item(s)...

      Returns Policy

      We'll pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

      If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received the returned item and make sure it’s unaltered.

  1. Why do Some Items Require Two or More Weeks for Delivery?

    Some items are shipped directly from the manufacturer to your address. Extra delivery time is needed for the vendor to receive your order and process it. Also shipping on Bulky items may be via a freight line which requires additional delivery time. Tracking information is sometimes unavailable for bulky items because they are shipped via freight line.
