Purchase Policy

Last Modified April 12, 2006


All orders are processed upon receipt. Actual shipping time is contingent upon availability of merchandise and credit verification by DrDetailForLess.com Credit and Fraud Protection Department. Most orders are shipped within 2 business days of receiving your order. All orders are shipped via FedEx, and when available, the tracking information will be emailed to you as soon as your product ships.  We don't ship to APO/FPOs or post office boxes or to hotels. No orders are processed or shipped on Saturdays. In the event of delays, every effort will be made to contact you by phone or e-mail. If the delay is due to backorder, you will receive notice and be given the choice to remain on backorder, substitute to another item, or cancel your order. Our site automatically computes shipping charges whenever you place an item in your shopping basket, and upon checkout will prompt you to choose the method of delivery you wish. Please note that shipping time is not the same as total delivery time. We need time to process and assemble your order before we actually ship it, so choosing NEXT DAY AIR does not mean your order will be delivered the day after you place your order online. Packages require signature. FedEx will make 3 attempts at delivery address before returning package to sender. Shipping and Handling are non-refundable.

Special Handling

If you would like to request special handling or rush delivery please call to speak to a DrDetailForLess.com representative. Our number is 714-870-8555.
