Shipping Policy

SHIPPING METHODS

Unless otherwise specified, Common Sense™ Products (CSP) contracts with UPS for shipping all orders that weigh over 1 pound, generally using regular ground delivery. CSP ships UPS unless otherwise notified. Since UPS cannot deliver to a post office box, a street address is required. If circumstances do not permit delivery to such an address, CSP can ship via Parcel Post through the U.S. Postal Service. CSP does not ship orders via UPS outside the continental U.S.

All orders outside U.S. are shipped U.S. Postal Service via Priority Mail (depending on the location). If faster service is required UPS blue label (two days guaranteed), UPS red label (one day guaranteed) and Federal Express (next day air) services are available at additional cost. The cost of such shipping is based on the weight of the boxed order and the distance it travels.

NOTE: If CSP completes a UPS blue or red label order on time, but the shipment is delayed by UPS, CSP cannot refund the special shipping charges to the Member because UPS offers no refunds to CSP.

Neither CSP nor any shipping carrier it uses is responsible for any delays in product shipment caused by circumstances beyond their reasonable control, including interruptions or delays due to war, terrorist attacks, or natural disasters.

SPECIAL SHIPPING ARRANGEMENTS

Requests for order pickup at CSP warehouse or special shipping instructions must be made at the beginning of a phone order, or printed in readily visible letters on mail orders. Arrangement for picking up orders from CSP warehouse requires advance notice. All pick-up orders must be paid for at the time the order is placed.

Extra charges for special shipping arrangements are the responsibility of the account holder placing the order.

When placing a drop-ship order (i.e., an order to an address other than that which appears on the account), the addressee's phone number (with area code) must be included so he/she can be notified when the shipment arrives. Special packaging request will incur an additional handling fee.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

Members who move should promptly notify CSP of their address change either by mail or by phone. Permanent address changes cannot be effected by noting the change on an order form. All address changes sent in by mail should be submitted separately to the attention of the Order Sales Department. To change an address by telephone, contact Customer Service or Order Sales Department. To guarantee proper product shipment after an address change, please give CSP two weeks notice.

LOST ORDERS

UPS ground shipments are not considered lost until the seventh business day after placement of the order. If seven business days have passed and the order has not been delivered, CSP can trace the order with UPS. Upon verification that an order has been lost or returned, CSP can reship or refund the order.

Parcel Post shipments cannot be traced. If 30 business days have transpired since the order was shipped, CSP will attempt to verify that the order has been returned, and may reship the package.

Priority Mail shipments cannot be traced and will not be reshipped until 15 business days from the Priority Mail date.

In the event of an emergency, CSP can ship and bill a duplicate order prior to the tracing process. Credit is applied for the original order when it is returned to CSP Home Office.

Neither CSP nor any shipping carrier it uses is responsible for any delays in product shipment caused by circumstances beyond their reasonable control, including interruptions or delays due to war, terrorist attacks, or natural disasters.

OTHER CHARGES

CSP will assess an $15.00 reshipping fee PLUS any applied fees by UPS (or any greater amount UPS or another carrier bills CSP) for non-deliverable orders that are due to the ordering Member's error. When applicable, this reshipping fee will be added to the cost of the order. The reshipping fee will be charged in any of the following situations:

  1. The Member moves without giving CSP prior notification of the new address (by submitting a "Change of Address Form") and the order is placed for delivery to the old address.
  2. A Member provides CSP with an incorrect address for a drop shipment.
  3. UPS is forced to correct the address.
  4. UPS is forced to reroute the order.
  5. UPS does NOT ship to P.O. Boxes.

BACK ORDERS

Products that are unavailable at the time of ordering are considered back-order status. Products on back order are noted by a "B.O." on the packing slip. When the item becomes available, it is shipped with the next order from that account.

If no new order is placed within five business days, the back-ordered products will be shipped separately. Back-ordered products are billed and paid for with the original order.
