&nbsp

We want you to enjoy your items and we will do our best to provide you with honest and helpful service. However please keep in mind that we are a small business running out of our home, and we are unable to operate using the same return policies like large retailers. To process a refund or an exchange:

ALL RETURNS MUST BE PRE-AUTHORIZEDContact Us for pre-authorization Please do not send items without first contacting us.

  • The order must be returned in unopened packaging (the silver envelopes must be intact and not torn) and in resalable condition. If the silver envelopes have been opened, a restocking fee will apply to each item that must be re-packaged. We reserve the right to adjust the refund amount based upon the condition of the item(s) returned.
  • Batteries taken out of their packaging cannot be refunded.
  • Include a copy of the packing slip with your returned items.
  • Items may be returned for a refund or exchange (less shipping) within 30 days.
If we have made a mistake in the order, you will not be charged for the shipping.
&nbsp

Cancellation of an order is allowed until the package has been marked "shipped" in our database. The customer is notified via email when the package has been marked shipped and a tracking number is provided.

&nbsp

Due to the uncertainties of sending packages through the mail, we’ve made it possible to purchase very affordable package insurance during the checkout process. Customers may choose to add insurance by making sure that the blue toggle button marked, “Route Shipping Protection” is turned to "On" in the shipping address section of the checkout page. Sorry, but True2Scale is not responsible for damaged, lost or stolen items. 

QUESTIONS ABOUT SHIPPING

&nbsp

Shipping costs are based on: 1) the weight of the items that are ordered and 2) the destination they are being shipped to. We ship using USPS, the most cost effective method. To check the cost of shipping the items you'd like to purchase, please place the items in your cart and provide a shipping address. 

&nbsp

Our items are shipped using United States Postal Service (USPS) for both domestic and International destinations. Sorry, we do not ship UPS or Fed Ex.

&nbsp

We know that you want to get your goodies fast. No worries... Carol likes to ship orders quickly. Please allow up to 2 working days after we receive payment for an order to be processed. If you're really in a hurry, Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express options are available. Orders are shipped from our home in Northern California. Please allow more time for International shipping (time varies by destination).  Occasionally, shipping may be delayed due to inclement weather, we're on the road to miniature shows, etc. In such circumstances, a notification will appear in a red bar located at the top of every page of this website.  If expedited shipping and/or insurance is desired, please contact us via the contact form. An updated PayPal invoice will be emailed to you.

&nbsp

Yes. After the package ships, a USPS tracking number will be emailed to you with a link to check the shipping progress. 

&nbsp

If the tracking information for a package has been marked delivered, and the package has not been received, a "case"may be opened by calling USPS. The USPS service number: 1-800-ASK-USPS. USPS will contact the delivery unit responsible for further information. USPS should provide a callback regarding the issue within 2 business days. If you live outside of the U.S., it is possible that your package is being held for customs and you have not received a notification. You may wish to check with your local Post Office.

QUESTIONS ABOUT INTERNATIONAL (NON-U.S.) ORDERS

&nbsp

Yes. However due to the recent changes in import fees, you'll need to contact Carol before placing an order. She will set up a custom listing for you In the True2Scale Etsy shop.

&nbsp

International customers are responsible for any taxes or duties that may be imposed by their country. 


&nbsp
