Handling Shipping Delivery and Insurance Costs

Please NOTE: Make sure when you purchase an item that you provide the correct delivery name and address information. The VFR will not be held responsible for incorrect or undeliverable merchandise when the information given was not correct. Double check your data input. Thank you.

With online purchases, the Vintage Fitting Room applies a general insurance amount based on the value of the item purchased and the USPS fee for insurance for priority mail sent to the mailing zone of the buyer or the same fees using the UPS services. We use standard first class shipping from the United States Postal Service, and similar shipping services from United Parcel Service. The size, weight, carton measurements, and delivery destination of the merchandise determines which service will be used by the VFR. We can ship priority or overnight for extra cost. You must contact us for a quote on these expedited services prior to our shipping to you.

All packages from either the USPS or UPS will have delivery confirmation and tracking numbers. Every effort to correctly assess the mailing expense of the purchase, including where applicable return receipts, insurance, and packaging costs are reflected in the handling and shipping costs. These costs are either set in a general ‘Handling, Shipping, Delivery, and Insurance Cost’ charge added to the total price of the purchase, or estimated and given to the buyer prior to purchase to be included in the final and total cost of the merchandise to be delivered. The VFR’s policy includes the cost of insurance for items and merchandise purchased online and sent from the shoppe or salon to the purchaser to cover loss or damage. If the client or customer wishes to have their purchase insured for their own use, the buyer must add that cost to the final handling and contact us with this request prior to shipping.

Any purchases from New Jersey residents will include 7% sales tax where applicable. All other state residents will have their applicable taxes tabulated automatically by the program venues through which the purchase is made online.

Any obvious extreme miscalculation of handling, shipping, delivery, and insurance costs will be refunded accordingly.
