Shipping policy: (Very Important)

Please note that all orders are FOB Santa Fe Springs, CA. USA.  Meaning, that our responsibilities terminate when the package leaves our door.  If an order is lost, stolen, or damaged the customer is responsible for filing claims for losses incurred during delivery.  This is why it is very important that the customer choose a shipping courier that they are happy with and that will offer satisfactory delivery of their order.  We will help in whatever way we can to assist in any claims for losses through the U.S. Postal System, UPS, Fed Ex, etc.  On international shipments we highly recommend, and will automatically use, USPS Express Mail Service because of the speedy delivery and traceable delivery features.  We do not recommend surface mail for overseas shipments. 

A note to our international customers.

We may be able to provide international customers a better rate for smaller orders.  Orders for small items such as helmet covers, individual shirts or trousers, smaller articles of web equipment and accessories, gloves, socks, headgear, etc that would fit into a flat rate envelope may qualify for a flat rate charge with limited insurance coverage at reduced postage.  Flat rate envelopes may also be overlooked by customs for taxes and duties charges.  International customers who are interested in us shipping them smaller items are highly encouraged to contact us with their needs to see if lower shipping rates are available.

Shipments to countries outside of the United States will likely be liable for duties and taxes.  All governments collect some form of tariff or value added tax for goods shipped into their country from abroad.  The rate will vary from country to country.  We advise that international customers check with their local governments to see what duties and taxes they will be liable for.

We ship USPS Express or Priority Mail because it is the most reliable, insured, and cost effective means to ship to our valued international customers. Otherwise it is up to the customer how they wish us to ship their package. Businesses traditionally ship FOB (Freight On Board) from their location. FOB Santa Fe Springs, CA, USA is clearly posted on this web site. This legally indicates that once a package leaves our possession, the receiver, via the shipping company, is ultimately responsible for the delivery of the order. As is the case with any other company, we fully cooperate with the shipping company in order to get shipments delivered on time and to pursue claims when necessary.

Some international customers request us to “undervalue” the articles in a shipment so as to minimize inevitable duties and taxes that recipients are liable for. We do not do this because it is illegal AND very unwise. In said event of losses, the receiver (not us) is only compensated for the declared value on the customs form, not the actual value they paid.

Here is a link to the USPS claims and inquiries page


In this page please note that an inquiry for a delayed shipment can be made no sooner than three days or no more than ninety days. Once the USPS has determined that a shipment has not been delivered on time (usually a week or two passes) we will initiate a tracer where the USPS attempts to locate the package. This tracer can take up to 30 days to complete. It is usually during this tracer period that shipments mysteriously re-appear. Once the tracer is complete and the shipment is declared lost, we reship the order to the customer and we file a claim with the USPS. Compensation of a claim usually takes up to an additional 30 days to be paid which we handle ourselves.

Delays are a rare occurrence but they do happen. Express Mail has a very good track record and we stand behind this service. We have been using Express Mail for many years to the satisfaction of our customers worldwide.
