How much does shipping cost?
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.
Do you ship outside of the United States?
Yes. Customers from the EU and UK should contact us via the contact form before placing an order.
How long does it take to receive my order?
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. After the product has been shipped, delivery time frames can range between 1-7 days (domestic) and 7-21 days (international). Orders are shipped from our home in Northern California. 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 sent to you via email.
What if my package is lost or damaged?
Due to the uncertainties of sending packages through the mail, very affordable package insurance is added to every order during the checkout process. Customers may choose to opt out of the insurance by making removing the item marked, “1-Click Protect by Route” from the shopping cart or from the shipping address section on the checkout page. Insurance claims may be made directly through the insurer, Route.
Sorry, but True2Scale is not responsible for damaged, lost or stolen items.
Will I be sent a tracking number?
Yes. After the package ships, a USPS tracking number will be emailed to you with a link to check the shipping progress.
Do you ship UPS or FedEx?
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.
If I live outside of the U.S., will I have to pay fees to receive my package?
International (non-U.S.) customers are responsible for any taxes or duties that may be imposed by their country. These are not included in the cost of shipping or handling of your order. Customs, duties, and taxes vary widely from country to country; please check with your local customs agency for details on estimated costs.
We follow International laws and are unable to mark merchandise as "gift" or "no commercial value". Please be familiar with the duties your country levies on imports. We have no control over those amounts and will not be held liable.
What is your refund policy?
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.
Items may be returned for a refund or exchange within 30 days.
To process a refund or an exchange:
- Contact us and let us know what the problem is, and that we should expect a package from you. Take note of your order number. We accept returned items in their original, unopened packaging. The silver envelopes must be intact. 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.
- Pop the items in the mail to us. When we get them, we'll contact you and refund the value of the items.
- Sorry, but we cannot refund shipping costs or offer return shipping labels.
If we have made a mistake in the order, you will not be charged for the shipping.
Sorry, but True2Scale is not responsible for damaged, lost or stolen items. Once the package leaves our hands, we cannot be held responsible if the package does not make it to its final destination. Insurance fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
What is your cancellation policy?
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.
What should I do if I haven't received my order?
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. We recommend reaching out to your local customs agency for details on cost, and what additional information is needed to get your parcel released.
