Delays are Possible
These unprecedented times have presented The Woolery and our partners with some unique challenges that can lead to delays in processing, fulfilling and delivering orders. These challenges include:
- Delays in delivery of merchandise and supplies to our shop
- Changes to our operations in order to comply with local regulations and to ensure the safety of our employees and customers
- Capacity of our shipping partners resulting in longer delivery transit times
Our objective is to safely provide the highest level of customer service and satisfaction possible. However, we are unable to provide refunds on shipping fees associated with delayed deliveries.
FedEx and UPS suspended delivery time guarantees in March, 2020.
USPS does not offer a shipping guarantee on Priority Mail.
Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
Orders that total $500 or more require an adult signature when delivered. FedEx Hold at Location is an alternative shipping option if providing a signature at delivery is an issue.

The available delivery locations will be displayed when selected your shipping options during checkout. An email is sent when your package is ready for pick up.

What Should I Do if I Have Problems with My Order?
- Please open all boxed items to ensure that they are correct and that there are no missing or incorrect parts.
- If a small item is "missing" - check all packing materials or the sides of the boxes as we will tape small items to the inside of a box so they are not misplaced.
- Depending on what you ordered, there is also the possibility that not all boxes have arrived or that an item is on backorder. Also, sometimes orders include a product that will be drop-shipped from the manufacturer/distributor resulting in packages arriving on different days.
- If you note a problem with your order - missing items, duplicate items, wrong items, etc. please contact us immediately at 800-441-9665.
- Incorrect items or missing parts reported after five business days from date of delivery will not be replaced.
When you receive our shipment, immediately examine the contents to determine safe arrival. You need to do this within 5 days of receiving your order; a delay beyond this time period may limit or eliminate a claim process. Protect yourself - inspect. If you note damage, you need to take the following steps:
- Maintain all shipping boxes and materials; these may need to be examined by the shipping company and returned to the shipping company. Failure to maintain the packing materials can impact how a claim will be handled.
- Take pictures of the box(es) and damage on the item. Email the pictures along with your contact information and order number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will contact you via either phone or email to resolve the damage to your order as quickly as possible.
- Incorrect items, missing parts or damage reported after five business days from date of delivery will not be replaced.
