SHIPPING

Pre-Ordered Products

Expected shipping dates for Pre-Order Products are noted on each product page. These dates are subject to reasonable delays in manufacturing and/or delivery. Upon delivery of product to our warehouse, depending on volume of product received, pre-ordered items can take anywhere for 1-2 weeks to process and ship to customers. Reasonable updates will be communicated from our team for any shipping updates. 

Pre-orders made utilizing our payment plan feature will not be shipped until final payment is made and item is in-stock. 

In-Stock Products

When an item is in-stock, orders may take up to a week to process and ship. Once your order is prepared for shipment, you will receive an email with tracking information. Our warehouse ships out orders Monday-Friday, excluding Holidays, unless otherwise specified.

Signatures are not required upon delivery; however, if a customer would like to request this service on an order shipped via FedEx, please utilize the FedEx Delivery Manager tool. If a customer would like to request this service on an order shipped via another courier, please contact Customer Service. Please note, requesting a signature requirement may incur additional fees.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: TAXES, CUSTOMS DUTIES, & IMPORT FEES

Dark Horse Direct will collect any US taxes required at the time you place your order. We will NOT collect international taxes or import fees and will be indicated as Delivered At Place (DAP). This means that the customer is responsible for all customs duties and import fees at the time your order arrives and is required by your local Customs office. Refusal of orders at customs to be delivered back to sender will not be considered for a refund and will be subject to forfeit of the order and additional fees incurred at the expense of the sender (Dark Horse Direct). We highly recommend inquiring with your local customs office about any potential fees required of you prior to placing your order. The assessment of these fees is not a valid reason for refusing or returning a package and will not be covered by Dark Horse Direct's Returns & Refunds Policy.

Dark Horse Direct is not responsible for items shipped to 3rd party forwarders, individuals or businesses, and will consider the product as delivered and final once delivery has been confirmed at indicated shipping destination. Any damages to your item after delivery confirmation from selected carrier are not the responsibility of Dark Horse Direct and the customer will be responsible for any requested replacement costs and additional shipping fees incurred. We reserve the right to cancel and refund orders at will if an address or shipping information is suspected as fraudulent. In the event we contact you for more information regarding your shipping address, please reply promptly with the additional information requested, otherwise a delayed response can result in order cancelation and/or additional fees.
