In most cases your item will take 10-15 business days to arrive to your doorstep. Remote areas may take longer. We will keep you updated from the minute your order is processed and shipped out to you.
2. Why does it take so long to get my order?
We strive to procure and ship out your items ASAP. In some cases there may be a delay form a vendor, in other cases your product needs to be customized. All products are sent to our warehouse by vendors where we do a thorough quality check and then only ship it out to you. This may take more time at the onset, but will save us all time in the long-run. Our concept is to keep costs low, waste low, and quality high. For this unfortunately we may take a little longer to deliver your product. Additionally, most products are coming from across the world and in many cases warehoused with individual vendors. Considering this 7-10 days is very reasonable.
