We ship via USPS or UPS using your choice of method. Shipping charges are calculated by the shopping cart using the carriers current rates with a small handling fee added on to cover shipping materials. If you have any questions of concerns about the shipping cost, please feel free to contact us
Pre-orders are charged at the time that the order is placed. This is due to PCI compliance standards which state that we are not allowed to store credit card information. We are happy to work out a different arrangement for payment with you if you contact us before placing your order.
If we lower the price on an item before the preorder period ends, we will offer you store credit for the difference if you placed your order at the higher price.
Pre-Orders will be shipped on or around the release date of the last item in the order, which is specified in the listing. We will make sure to get them out as soon as we receive them, but can not account for delays in receiving an item.
Pre-ordered items can not be canceled. Please make sure that you want the item(s) and are willing to wait for them before you place the order. These items are considered special orders and will not be canceled unless canceled by the distributor.
