Shipping

General

We package and ship every business day. All packages will be dropped off with the carrier by 12:00pm CST each business day. Any orders after that time will be dropped the following business day. There could be times when we are on vacation, on these occasions we will post a notice to the store. You can still order, but your shipment will be delayed until we return.

If you have an account, you can track your shipment in your order history found in the My Account section of our website. If you have your tracking number ready or you purchased as a guest without creating an account you can track your package HERE. Alternately, detailed tracking can also be found by searching your tracking number directly on the carrier’s website or even on Google. Still having trouble? Contact us via our contact form.

We will ship according to the shipping address you provide at checkout, please notify us of any address change before your order is marked “Completed” to avoid package loss. If your package is shipped to the incorrect address, we cannot be held responsible and no refund will be issued.

Although we do not offer FedEx at checkout at this time, we may use it when shipping heavier packages. This is a cost effective and reliable service that we have used many times. FedEx SmartPost or FedEx Ground or Home Delivery will be used depending on the size and weight of the package. If we do ship via this method we will contact you to discuss options and get your approval before moving forward.

More International Details

**PLEASE NOTE: In our experience shipping internationally, via eBay, we have learned that shipping time can greatly vary. First Class can tend to be faster than stated above depending on your country, however, we have also seen packages take up to 90 days. While it is rare it does happen, and some countries more than others. Customs has been known to hold packages for indefinite lengths of time on both the domestic and international sides. International First Class and Priority packages cannot be tracked reliably at every step along the way. This is just the way these services are setup at USPS. If you require reliable and detailed tracking please choose Priority Mail Express at checkout.

**Also note that orders shipped via USPS First Class and Priority Mail International are not guaranteed and do not qualify for a refund if they are lost in transit. Please read more about our returns policy HERE for more details about returns in general.

Customs, Duties and Taxes

All international packages will be marked as “merchandise” on the required customs forms. International customers are responsible for any applicable duty or taxes that may be related to the delivery of their purchases. If these charges apply to you they will likely be charged to you at pick up your package from the carrier.

You should expect to pay any amount charged by the government in your respective country. This includes, and is not limited to, duties, taxes and any extra fees charged by the courier company. We will not be held responsible for any extra charges once the original package has been shipped. If the customer refuses to pay these extra charges, the return shipping and any additional fees will not be paid or reimbursed by TexElec.
