How do I know if my order has been shipped?

If you have supplied us with a valid email address when placing your order, you should receive an email the day after your order ships with tracking information. If you do not receive this email within a few days of placing your order you can Contact Us for order status. You can also obtain order status and tracking information by clicking on the Order Status button, which is located at the top of any page and entering your order ID number, email address and zip code to get the latest order information available.

Can I track my order?

You can track your shipment by using the tracking information provided in your shipping confirmation email or by contacting us for your tracking number and entering that information into the tracking box on either the Fed Ex, UPS or USPS websites.

What if I did not receive all the items I ordered?

In most cases this means that the items were not all shipped together. There may have been a back-order and other items will ship when available. This is usually shown on your packing slip. It is also possible that items are coming from different warehouses due to availability and will not arrive together. If you have any questions you can always Contact Us for exact item status.

My tracking information states "Delivered" but I haven't received anything.

This is a very rare event, however, if this does occur, please do the following:

1) Ask other household members, neighbors or your doorman if they have accepted the package for you. If the delivery address is a business, check with the front desk to see if someone there accepted delivery on your behalf.

2) Take a quick look around your property. Carriers tend to leave packages in safe locations, such as under the porch or bench, at the back door or around the garage area.

3) Check your mailbox thoroughly. Sometimes smaller items are overlooked inside.

4) Look for an attempted delivery notice on your front door. If the carrier feels it is unsafe to leave your package at your residence or business, the driver will leave an attempted delivery notice.

After exploring these options you should Contact Us so we can have the shipping carrier attempt to locate the package for you.
