Shipping & Return Policy
All shipping charges are calculated based on the package weight, dimensions and destination.
U.S. Domestic Orders:
Most orders are shipped within 2-3 business days from the date order is placed. At times certain items may be temporarily back ordered by our suppliers or the product manufacturer. Under such circumstance, we will inform customers by email if any item ordered is subject to this situation.
All U.S. domestic orders are shipped either via USPS, UPS or FedEx. The choice of courier will depend on the item(s) ordered and delivery destination.
All Frozen items are shipped packed in dry ice via Over-Night delivery. If you select a shipping option other than “USA Overnight Frozen items”, it will be upgraded to this option and the charges will be adjusted accordingly. If you are requesting Saturday delivery of your products, there will be an additional charge of $10.00 assessed for Saturday delivery. When ordering frozen items, it is imperative that you are available to accept and sign for delivery. If you are not available everyday, then specify the date you can accept delivery in the comment area when placing your order.
The following is an estimated of the amount of time a package may be in transit:
USA Standard – Transit time 3-7 Business days.
USA Express – Transit time 1-2 Business days.
USA Overnight – Transit time next business day ($10 extra for Saturday Delivery).
All packages are shipped with a coded tracking number and require signature on delivery.
Please note that expedited delivery options such as Express and overnight, only reduces the transit time. It has no effect on the amount of time it takes to process your order and does not put your order ahead of any other order. All order are process on a first come first serve basis.
All International ordersare shipped via International Air Mail unless otherwise requested.

Packages sent via International Air Mail delivery are in transit for 3 to 10 business days depending on the destination country. There may be additional delays due to customs clearance. This additional delay varies greatly depending on the country’s importation regulations.
Please note that packages may be inspected and at times rejected by Customs Officials of some nations. It is your responsibility to ensure the legality of any product in your country. If any package is refused by customs officials and returned to us undamaged, we will gladly refund your money.

We do not charge any taxes on International orders; however, your Country’s customs official may charge you additional taxes or importation duties. It is your responsibility to pay for any such fees imposed by your nation in a timely manner.
All frozen items are shipped packed in dry ice via expedited delivery.
