- Our Policies
We ship to virtually everywhere in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products that prevent them from being shipped to international destinations.
When you place an order, we will estimate shipping for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose.
Please also note that the shipping rates for all items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can often be found on its detail page. All weights will be rounded up to the next full pound and include packaging.
VAT and Customs Fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. We cannot estimate them and refusing to accept a shipment because of the fees is NOT grounds for a refund and will be refused.
We will not falsify Customs forms as to item value.
Returns, Exchanges & Refund Policy
New Items: You may return most new, unused items within 14 days of delivery for a full refund, less shipping. Must include original packaging and all tags and be unused. We will only pay for return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect item).
If any item was sent under one of the "free shipping" promotions, you will be charged a restocking fee of $8 because there is no such thing as free shipping. UPS and the Post Office always get paid.
Carbs, carb parts, batteries and electronic parts are NOT returnable at any time.
If you need to return an item, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may be able to fix the problem without the need or expense of a return.
We are happy to exchange a product for another size or color. Email us first!
Refunds are handled via the same way we received them. If paid via credit card, refund (less shipping) will be via refund via your credit card; if Paypal, via refund through Paypal.
Used Items: Used items are always sold "AS IS" and no refund or return is possible. Make an adult decision about purchasing any used item.
