All items shipped via UPS require a signature for delivery. If you are not available on the first delivery attempt, a note will be left with instructions on how to receive your order. A total of three attempts are made before it is returned to the warehouse. If the package is in transit to the warehouse and you would still like to receive your order, you will have to pay the shipping fee for those items to reship.
Once an order is charged/paid for, it must be shipped out for delivery within the delivery time-frame. We can not “hold” submitted orders for processing or delivery on a designated date. Order should be submitted with consideration to the processing and delivery times stated.

EUROPE (EU only)
Products shipped to EU Countries will be free of charge, just like in the United States.
EU Countries charge a Value Added Tax (VAT), which is the an important tax in EU Countries, and as a result, the percentage charged is much higher than in the United States.
This VAT is 21%, however, it is a tax that must be paid whenever any transaction occurs in any country in Europe.
Therefore, when products are sold in Europe, VAT must be charged and the tax must be paid to the government every quarter. Additionally, a customs duty of 7% is applied. VAT and customs duties must be paid regardless of whether the product is shipped from the United States or within Europe. VAT in Europe is equivalent to the Sales Tax paid when purchasing goods in the United States.
VAT EXEMPTION: If the buyer is a company that holds a VAT license, then they do not need to pay the 21% VAT. Only in this case is the VAT exempt.
The chart below shows the amount that must be paid when ordering to Europe.
