Shipping & Returns
Vette Lab Shipping Policy (jump to Returns Policy)
Vette Lab strives to process all in-stock orders within 24 hours (unless stated otherwise) of when the order is placed, excluding weekends and holidays. For all continental U.S. orders, please allow 7-10 business days to receive your order.
Small packages that weigh less than 4 lbs. are sent by U.S. Postal Service 1st Class or Priority Mail. This service is the fastest and most economical for this size of package. The U.S. Postal Service delivers to the continental United States, as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and military addresses (APO/FPO), Monday through Saturday. All other packages will be shipped regular ground service by UPS or FedEx, which reaches a large portion of the continental U.S. within 3 business days of our facility. Vette Lab offers Next Day air and 2 Day air services upon request; an additional fee may apply.
International Orders: Please inquire: [email protected]
Insurance: For protection against loss or damage of your purchase, all shipments are insured. Insurance costs are included in shipping charges.
Shipping & Packaging Charges
Pertaining to orders shipped ground within the continental USA: Ground service freight charges for your entire order will be charged at the time of the first shipment. Any backorders shipped after the initial shipment will not incur any additional shipping charges.
Not Shipping to your Billing Address?
If your order is shipping to an address other than the billing address on your credit card, we may contact you to list the alternate address with your credit card company. This helps prevent fraudulent use of your credit card. To list the alternate address with your credit card company, just call the 800 number on the back of your card and ask the agent to add the address to the notes on your account. Listing the address before you place an order helps us process your order more quickly.
PLEASE INSPECT ALL PACKAGES IMMEDIATELY.
All damages, shortages, or errors must be reported within 7 days of receipt of package. Please have the package and invoice with you when you call.
