        Tracking typically updates in the late afternoon to late evening once the carrier accepts your package and it is placed into transit. US Postal Tracking can take 24 or more to update sometimes--sometimes it takes day to update or updates on the day they deliver packages. This is beyond our control. 

        Delivery delays/misdirected/lost/stolen packages: Delays, loss, misdirection or thievery of your packages is the responsibility of the shipping carriers we pay to deliver your packages. We are not the shipping carrier. We do our due diligence in careful packaging, and we will try to help with tracking. Packages are insured and a claim may be filed if your package is not recoverable. NOTE: the carriers have ways to find packages using GPS technology. We have had packages delivered to wrong addresses or stolen and the carrier has found them using this technology. 

        Know that we are always glad to help you if you need anything else regarding your order. If you have an issue or need help, you are welcome to call or email us. Do not hesitate to reach out to us. We will help you. We are just a message away and will respond as quickly as possible.
