Shipping Methods

Most of our orders are shipped in the way that is most time efficient and cost effective. In example, if you have a small order that is going to California it will be shipped by USPS Priority, as it is the most time efficient and cost effective. However, since we are in North Carolina, a small order may be sent by UPS Ground to some parts of Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina since it will arrive next day. If you are needing a package shipped by a specific carrier please let us know in the "Customer Notes" during the Checkout process. We are not held responsible for packages that are not delivered to you for lack of information. All international packages will be shipped by USPS Priority Express International unless otherwise chosen during the Checkout process.

Our shipping hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. All USPS Priority orders need to be placed before 12 p.m. EST to guarantee same day shipping. Any orders placed after 3:00 p.m. EST will be processed and shipped on the next business day. In example, orders that are placed Wednesday evening with UPS 2nd Day Shipping will be shipped out Thursday afternoon and will arrive the following Monday.

Due to a rise in shipping costs, we will not ship certain products to PO Boxes. Those items include: M137, M163, V368, V369, V500, V501, V502, and V503. The V500-V503 require LTL Freight (18 wheeler), and will be Drop Shipped to states in the contiguous US (not HI or AK). We will contact you regarding special instructions for those items. If you choose Standard Shipping during Checkout and list your Shipping Address as a PO Box, we will contact you for a different shipping address for those items. If you do not respond by email or phone, we will cancel your order and you will need to place a new order with a different Shipping Address or by a different Shipping Method.

Please refer to our Shipping Policy for the days that we do not ship on for various reasons.

International orders will be shipped once we have verified that we have all items ordered in stock. If an item is on backorder from the manufacturer we will notify you immediately. We will not do partial shipments to anywhere outside of the US. Customs Fees and Import Taxes are not part of Shipping Costs. These duties/fees are the buyer's responsibility. We will email you immediately upon receipt of an international order to confirm your understanding of this. If a package is refused due to Customs Fees or Import Taxes and returned to us, you will be refunded for the price of the products only. We request that you contact your local custom's office to find out more information about these fees and taxes before ordering from us.

Due to CoVID-19 and numerous complaints, there will be some changes to our policies. Until normal shipping resumes across the US, we will not be offering UPS Next Day or UPS 2nd Day. If your package does not get there on time, you will not be refunded for the shipping costs, as we cannot control how UPS or USPS operates.

Also, we are limiting our international shipping to countries that have opened their borders to trade with the US. If you do not see your country listed during Checkout, please email us. After placing your order, you will receive an email confirming you understand that there will be delays with shipping out of the US. If you do not respond after a second email notification, your order will be cancelled.

Our Return Policy
If you need to return an item, e-mail us at info@pipefitter.com or call us at 910-592-1310 within 30 days of receipt for instructions.

Merchandise that has been used or show any signs of abuse cannot be returned for refund or exchange. You may be under warranty and must work with the manufacturer to resolve the issue.

Any packages that are returned to us for "Incomplete Address", "Insufficient Address", or "Address - Not Known", will be held at our facility. The customer will be responsible for the second Shipping Cost to the full amount or if requested refunded for the products only.

Returned Merchandise Credits
Credit will be evaluated for each returned item individually. We will refund item costs only. Once an item is received you will be contacted so that we may process your return.

Reasons for Return
Exchange or Credit
All returns will be inspected upon receipt. Upon approval of receipt you will either be credited the monetary value or the monetary value will be put towards an exchange. You will either be credited or charged the remainder of the new order.

If you received your item as a gift, you will need to provide your own form of payment if necessary.

Functional or Visual Defects
We inspect all merchandise before we ship it. In the event that your merchandise is defective, it can be handled in one of the following ways:

“Out of the box” visual defects must be reported within 30 days of receipt.

Functional defects must be reported to the manufacturer. Here’s a list of the manufacturer’s information.

Upon an approved receipt you will be contacted for the original payment method of your order. Eligible refunds will be credited to that method of payment. If that payment method declines you will be notified of the situation and another payment method will need to be provided.

Refused Packages
Customers wishing to refuse a shipment for any reason are automatically subject to ALL shipping charges.

If you receive a damaged package, you must notify the shipper and us immediately. Also, you will need to e-mail us photographs of the damaged package and it's contents. If you are missing any items, contact us. We are not responsible for UPS / USPS and other carrier delays.

All Warranty or defects are covered by the manufacturer. We do not warranty any product.
