All items are freshly made and carefully packed by The Solid Bar Company Team immediately prior to shipping. In the past we have used two of the 'major private carrier' companies but (sadly) our experience with them proved that their 'hub and spoke' systems have neither proved cost effective nor timely (or reliable) for our customers and ourselves and so we have reverted to using the 'good old USPS'.
So for now, and until customer feedback determines otherwise we will remain solely with USPS. As such we aim to have all orders prepared, packed and shipped within 2-3 working days of receipt or the order. For orders destined within the USA and Canada we apply the Priority Mail 3 Day Service with online tracking to all orders. If a customer has special or 'immediate' shipping requirement they are advised to call or email us with their specifics and we will do our utmost to accommodate them whenever possible.
Customs and other Border Charges
Unfortunately on occasion we are aware that certain country's border and customs officials can delay shipments from the USA and may also levy additional importation charges on shipped items.
We have no control over this practice and must advise that any and all such charges remain the responsibility of the importing party i.e. the customer.
We can not intervene in this process in anyway to either influence the charges being waived or to expedite their process time.
Refunds - if applicable
Our policy lasts 14 days. If 14 days have gone by since your order was shipped, unfortunately we cannot offer you a refund, credit note or product exchange.
In the rare event that you may be dissatisfied with any of our products, or in any other circumstances, please contact us in the first instance, quoting your order reference number, with your concerns by email or call us on +1 407 821 7383, and we will endeavor to resolve matters to a mutually satisfactory conclusion.
Please note that our sales and customer service hours are Mon to Fri: 9-5 EST and Sat to Sun: Closed.
If we consider that the circumstances warrant refund pursuance, and to ensure that you are eligible for the refund process, the returned items need to be unused and returned in the original packaging.
