Note on Turnaround Times
Process and delivery times expressed are based upon normal business volumes. Please note that during peak seasons and holidays, order process times may increase. (Refer to Holiday Shipping Policy below for more details) You may choose to upgrade the shipping method for faster delivery however, please note that this does not affect order process times. Not all delivery methods are available to all areas.
The shipping and handling cost for your order is based on the total weight of the order.
MoTEAvation is not responsible for packages that are undeliverable due to wrong addresses, missing information or not having someone present to receive packages. If there is a suite number, apartment number, or building number, please be sure to include that on your order.
UPS has permission to leave packages at the recipient address if no one is there to sign for them; however UPS drivers may also leave a UPS notice for a 2nd or 3rd delivery attempt at their discretion. MoTEAvation is not responsible for packages stolen or damaged after they are delivered to the address specified by the customer. We highly recommend that someone be home to accept the package or that it is shipped to a workplace or office address when possible.
If you select "Signature Required for Delivery", your package will not be delivered unless it is signed for. If no one is present, UPS will make two more attempts before they return the package to us.
If your order is undeliverable and returned to us, you will be issued a store credit for your order, minus the shipping cost. If you wish to send the same items again, a new order is required. You may also need to provide an alternate shipping address, as UPS may flag the undeliverable address on all future deliveries.
MoTEAvation is not responsible for delays caused by weather, mechanical failure or other acts beyond our control.
