Shipping and Processing:
At West-Valley Distributors, we strive to process orders as expeditiously as possible. Items in stock are shipped within seven (7) business days. All other items will be shipped in a timely manner depending on supply and shipment times and availability. There is no guaranteed processing time for any items offered by West-Valley Distributors although we will attempt to ensure an acceptable delivery time.
Orders processed may be shipped in different stages and may not be shipped as one complete order. Availability of items may delay shipment.
All Shipping prices listed are approximate and for Domestic (United States) Delivery only. All international shipping including Canada and Mexico will require special rates and an approximate shipping and handling charge will be quoted prior to order processing. All duties & taxes are the responsibility of the recipient of the shipment.
All special order items (including feathers and/or boas) will have additional processing times for alteration and shipping. To expedite order, additional shipping fees can be paid but must be cleared through West-Valley Distributors to ensure availability prior to order processing.
Express shipment of commodities (feathers and/or boas) will have an additional 25% surcharge plus the extra cost of express delivery. All commodity orders generally require 2-3 week processing time and shipping time to final destination.
Shipment of special orders will require at least a 3-4 week processing time and all shipping dates are approximate and in no way constitute a contractual obligation.
All orders will be sent to the shipping address the customer provides this web site when placing an order. It is the customer's responsibility to update their address if it changes. We accept no responsibility for orders that are shipped to an invalid address provided to us as the ship to address. Proof of delivery with either UPS Tracking and/or Delivery Confirmation numbers that show the package was delivered ends our responsibility since we have proof that the package was delivered.
Shortages and Other Discrepancies:
After we have shipped your order and after you have received your order, it is your responsibility to check the contents of your order immediately.
Any and all shortages, damages or other discrepancies must be notified to West-Valley Distributors within 48 hours of receipt. No claims for damages, shortages or discrepancies will be accepted after 48 hours from receipt.
