If your tracked service shipment shows as being delivered by your local post office but it is not in your mail box, you need to speak with your post office as soon as possible. If the package does not fit in your mail box they will most often leave you a 'card for pick up' at your local post office.

If your order is not in your mail box you need to have a discussion with your post office postmaster as to where the package is. Their tracking updates indicate they are in possession of the package, therefore it is their responsibility to you.

If your package arrives opened, you need to file a claim with your post office for damages. We ship all our orders in new condition.
If a part of your order is missing from your package, we will investigate to determine if the item was shipped with the order. The weight of the items and its packaging make up the shipping weight. If the weights are correct, then either someone misplaced the item that is missing at the customer's location, or your package was opened prior to you receiving it. We will only ship items that we have conclusively determined were our mistake in not shipping the first time.
If we should receive a complaint about any part of our service, by phone, e-mail or letter, then it will be dealt with confidentially and professionally within the same day or next day.
