Shipping Policy

Shipping exception notice: We are closed for 4th of July week. Orders placed now will ship the week of July 11, 2022.

We are currently shipping Monday - Thursday with most orders shipping the same or next business/shipping day. 

Once an order is placed it is put immediately into a shipping queue, this means we cannot cancel or modify your order once completed. If you have ordered incorrectly, you can return any uninstalled items that have been shipped to you. See our Shipping, Warranty, and Returns page for more information.

To Prevent Delays

Please double-check the address. Include a correct phone number to be used only if there is an issue with the order.  We do not ship to PO Boxes. Orders with PO Box addressing will be delayed while the customer is contacted and the address is corrected.

To prevent delays: Confirm the wire color of all items. Confirm that bulbs and cords match (for example, C7 with C7, C9 with C9, E12 bulb with E12 cord). Confirm SPT rating of cords and plugs match.
