We take the necessary steps to pack your order with care using only the highest quality shipping materials; checking and labeling each order with fragile stickers before leaving our facility. We are not responsible for damages that occur during shipment unless it is deemed that your item was improperly packed.

If your order was damaged from shipping please do the following:

Depending on the level of damage; your order may qualify for either full or partial reimbursement. We will inspect the damage and file a claim with USPS accordingly and provide you with the claim ID. Please note, in some cases USPS may request to inspect the claimed package further, you will be contacted via USPS by letter if this is required. If this request is not fulfilled within the allotted time your claim may be denied.
