Delivery Risk of Loss
All items purchased from our website are made pursuant to our shipping terms, which are F.O.B. shipping point. This means that risk of loss and title of any item is passed to you at the shipping point, which is when the carrier accepts the goods for transport. We are not responsible for losses as a result of packages being left in your absence. It is your responsibility to have someone present at time of delivery. You can track your order online in "Your Account" or contact us to obtain a tracking number to find out when your delivery is scheduled. If your package is left by the shipper unsigned or signed fraudulently and is lost, you will not be reimbursed. However, we will assist you in filing a lost or damage claim with the shipper, but the decision for the claim is based solely on their information, findings and policy.
Before filing a claim, consider checking around your property for packages that may have been placed out of sight and check with your neighbors to see if your package was accidentally delivered to their address. If you still cannot locate the package, you will need to call the shipper to notify the driver who will return to your address within 24 hours. If the driver cannot locate the package, a claim will be made with the shipper and can take roughly 30 days to settle. We are not responsible for replacing any lost orders based on your claim processing. All replacement items will need to be reordered and paid, until your claim is settled.
