LOW-COST, HONEST SHIPPING!
Fed up with surprises when you reach checkout? We have worked very hard to create a shipping cost policy that is clear, simple and the most competitive available to the hobbyist beekeeper. Here’s how it works…
FOR PACKAGES OF 25 lbs OR LESS
- Low cost shipping on orders under $75. We try our very best to keep shipping costs as low as possible for you, the hobbyist beekeeper.
- Free shipping on orders of $75+ and under 25 lbs. Check around! Most beekeeping stores require orders of at least $100 to qualify for free shipping (if they even offer free shipping). Not PerfectBee!
FOR PACKAGES OF 25 lbs OR MORE
We calculate shipping charges based on weight and shipping address. Of course, we’ll tell you exactly what you will pay before you check out.
Our shipping charges are very competitive and we invite you to check our “to-the-door” (product costs + shipping) price.
Our highly competitive shipping costs are the reason so many choose PerfectBee.
Outside of the contiguous US
We don’t like it either, but shipping costs outside of the contiguous US states suck (including Alaska, Hawaii and Canada)!
But rather than simply not offer service to our friends in these locations, we ask that you please contact us through Customer Service for a shipping estimate.
SHIPPING METHODS AND SCHEDULE
Orders are shipped via Fedex, UPS or USPS on business days, Monday through Friday. After receiving your order, we do our best to move things along quickly and efficiently. In the majority of cases orders are shipped within 1-3 days. We work with a small number of trusted and established distributors in various locations in the US for fulfillment, with products shipping from the US east coast.
If it appears your order will take longer than a week* to leave a warehouse – which is very unusual – we will try to contact you and ask how you would like to proceed. At any stage, before an an order ships, we are happy to cancel the order if this is your wish. For our policy after your order leaves the warehouse, please see our Return Policy below.
In rare cases we may be aware of a delay in shipping due to heavy demand, in which case we will note this on the relevant product page.
The vast majority of orders are processed and dispatched quickly and efficiently. However, on occasion we may need to reach you to clarify an issue with your order or offer an alternative product. We will attempt to contact you via the contact information you provide to us (email or phone).
This almost always results in a simple and straightforward way to move forward with your order. However, in the unlikely event that our multiple attempts to reach you are unsuccessful, we will cancel your order and refund you the full amount via your initial method of payment.
In summary, we will inform you every step of the way and alert you in the very rare event there is a significant delay.
For any shipping questions, please contact Customer Service.
GENERAL RETURN POLICY
Our return policy is generous and focused on you, our esteemed customer. Where necessary, some factors are dependent on the type of product and our suppliers, as follows.
Within 30 days of receiving your order, if, for any reason, our product does not meet your expectations, we will be happy to exchange or fully refund your order. Returned items must be unused, unaltered and unabused. You are responsible for return shipping (unless the product was damaged when you received it).
For products made primarily with honey, beeswax, propolis or other products of the beehive, we can only accept returns if the product is returned unopened and unused.
PerfectBee is not responsible for damage that occurs during return shipping. Take precautions to avoid damage during shipping by packing your return item with the same packaging in which it arrived.
Requesting a Return
To initiate a return, please get in touch with Customer Service and we will respond with the appropriate instructions for returning your item(s).
Issue of Refund
Refunds on return orders, minus return shipping costs, will be processed upon receipt and verification of the item(s) at our suppliers location, in the condition described by the policy above.
We retain the right to assess each order and, as necessary, decline to process the order, issuing a full refund to the customer and an explanation as to the reason we are unable to process the order.
Damaged or Missing Items
We encourage you to open and inspect your order as soon as it arrives. If you receive a damaged or broken item, please contact us within 7 days of receiving your order. We will request photos of both packaging (including the shipping label) and product damage to accurately submit your claim to our shipper.
After you provide the images and we have verified with our shipper, we can process the exchange and a new product will be sent to you at no cost.
After 7 days, we can still exchange a damaged item, however, the cost of initial shipping and product replacement shipping will be the customer’s responsibility.
If an item is missing from your order, please contact Customer Service and let us know which item did not arrive. We will request your order number and promptly send your item at no extra charge.
