Rush delivery is available upon request at an additional shipping charge. Canadian orders are shipped through the US Postal Service, and shipping charges are calculated on an order-by-order basis.
Why did I receive my order in a recycled/reused box?
We strive to keep your shipping charges as low as possible. Since packing material and boxes are a major expense, we decided to recycle/reuse boxes whenever possible. This keeps them out of our landfills and allows us to pass the savings on to our customers.
How are backordered (out of stock) items charged?
You are only charged for items when they ship. If part of your order is backordered, you will be charged initially for items that ship, along with the $9.95 shipping charge. When the backordered items ship, you will be charged for those items only. Any additional shipments are made at our expense, not yours.

Please contact our Customer Service department at (706) 219-0256. You will be instructed as to whether you should discard the item or whether you need to return the merchandise to Alpenland.
