I PLACED AN ORDER ONLINE, BUT IT DID NOT GO THROUGH.

If your order did not go through, it is most likely because your credit card was declined.

shipping

HOW ARE ORDERS SHIPPED?

We ship all standard sized products and orders via FedEx. During checkout, you may choose from the following shipping options:

- FedEx Ground (transit time depends on destination)
- FedEx Express Saver (transit time is 3 business days)
- FedEx 2Day (transit time is 2 business days)
- FedEx Standard Overnight (delivery on the following business day)

WHEN WILL MY ORDER SHIP?

We make every effort to ship out your order as fast as possible. Most orders ship within 1-2 business days. In order to keep your costs as low as possible, we ship our products from different warehouses across the continental US. During the busiest months, in November and December, it may take 3 to 4 business days before standard orders will ship. Expedited shipments (FedEx Express Saver, 2Day and Overnight) are always given priority. Please note that no orders ship out on weekends and during Thanksgiving.

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE TO ARRIVE?

Below are estimated transit times for FedEx Ground shipping:

I NEED MY ORDER TO ARRIVE BY A SPECIFIC DATE.

Santa's Quarters does not guarantee arrival times or dates of shipments. If you need your order to arrive at a certain date, we advise you to choose an expedited shipping method, as FedEx does not guarantee delivery time on Ground shipments. Please note that FedEx Express Saver, 2Day and Standard Overnight are only delivered on business days.

WHY IS MY ORDER SHIPPED VIA FREIGHT?

Oversized items and large orders are automatically shipped by freight, in which case you will only see the freight option during checkout for these orders. Shipping times for freight delivery are typically the same as FedEx Ground shipping times.

CAN I USE MY COMPANY'S FEDEX/UPS/DHL ACCOUNT?

We will gladly use your company's account with FedEx, UPS, or DHL, but please note that in such cases we will be unable to provide you with shipping rates. Please make sure to contact us with your account information prior to placing an order. We are sorry, but we cannot use your shipping account once an order has been placed.

HOW MUCH ARE SHIPPING COSTS?

You can calculate shipping rates to your destination prior to checkout in the shopping cart. Simply enter the zip code of the shipping address, and click the “Calculate Shipping” button. Unlike many stores, we do not inflate our shipping rates – they are pulled directly from FedEx.

I ALREADY PLACED MY ORDER AND WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE SHIPPING METHOD.

Once an order has been placed, it is entered into our automated warehouse system. We are not able to change the shipping method once an order has been prepared for shipping, or has left our warehouse.

HOW CAN I TRACK MY ORDER?

If you have placed your order online you can access your account here anytime, using the email address and password you received after your purchase. Once you have logged in you will be able to see the status of your order and your tracking number once your order has shipped.

Yes we do! Please note that there are increased transit times to these locations.

MY ORDER HAS SHIPPED, BUT I CHANGED MY MIND AND NO LONGER WANT IT.

Orders that have already shipped out cannot be canceled. Once you receive your order, you have the option of returning it. Please see below for our return policy.

I HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY ORDER.

This may be due to the following reasons:

One or more items are on back order and have not yet arrived at our warehouse. If this is the case, we notify you by email right after you place your order.

Your order is still in transit. Please use your tracking number to check the status of your order.

In very rare cases, orders get lost during shipping. Please contact customer service [email protected] for help.
