Paid Commercial Shipping 40.01 lbs. + for United Sates orders

All packages will will transit either FedEx, USPS Priority, or UPS, based upon customer's destination address and total shipping weight of the order; destination regions are usually 2-5 business days depending on carrier routes, weather, scan receipts, holiday times, and the handling times within the carrier hubs. During shipment processing, carrier labels will be created to notify the carrier for pick-ups, and orders received will then be processed for shipment and sent to our production queue by 5:00 AM, eastern time for fulfillment, Monday-Friday; this process occurs within 24-36 hours after order receipt(s), excluding weekends. Orders are fulfilled and processed on a "first in, first out" basis in fairness to all of our customers.

During shipment processing, we will efficiently determine when the order will be completed for a final shipment date and assigned to the carrier for optimum performance to the destination. During peak seasons, and sometimes in unusual circumstances, delays on our end and with the carriers will happen. This is not intentional as we ALWAYS strive to do our best during fulfillment and shipment processing.

Domestic (USA) Address Accuracy

It is the responsibility of the buyer to make sure that the shipping address is entered correctly at check-out. We do our best to speed up processing and shipping times, but it is very important that the shipping and billing addresses are correct for order processing. Due to financial protection on your end and ours, we do not change any addresses once the order has been placed. Please make sure that everything is accurate when you are processing/paying your order. If you decide to cancel your order, please write to us at contact@rhoadsroast-coffees.com immediately as orders process very early daily. We will do our best to help you, however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so, as there are varying time schedules for carrier pick-ups. We do our best at all times to ensure correct and prompt delivery with our carriers and we expect to receive correct shipping data from our customers so that they may receive their order(s) quickly. During transit and final delivery, if the carrier determines that the address is not correct, or undeliverable, or refused by the buyer, etc., and the package is returned to us, a 25% re-stocking fee for the product plus shipping postage charges will be applied against the buyer's net refund. 

International Orders ~ Roasted orders are always custom roasted, Monday-Friday as customer selected. Please be aware that all carriers are experiencing delays and tight delivery times due to global issues and the surge in eCommerce ordering. These delays are affecting shipping estimate guarantees. Your patience and support is appreciated.

For our international customers, due to the grocery nature of our products, please be advised that all sales are final and we do not accept nor process any international returns or exchanges. All international orders must have the correct address for the shipping with assigned carriers. If an incorrect or undeliverable international address is supplied and determined by the carrier, or if the package is refused or abandoned by the customer, the carrier will return the package to us. If this happens, we will apply a 25% re-stocking fee for the product plus all return postage charges towards the buyer's net refund due to an incorrect/delivery exception address given to us through check-out for fulfillment of international order(s). Also, buyer refusal of package(s) AND/OR failure of duties not paid by the buyer on fulfillment of an international order will also incur these charges if returned to us.

International orders are shipped at the buyer's expense, fulfilled and processed through FedEx, UPS, UPS Ground (Canada & Mexico only), USPS, or DHL. When choosing these carriers, we have found them to be expeditious in handling and transit. All packages leave our facility perfectly intact and secure. Any international damages should be addressed to and handled by the local carrier at the customer's delivery region(s). While we take responsibility for USA domestic package travel, we are not responsible for any damages that may result from international shipping once the order package(s) leave the USA. Satellite images and scans are monitored and viewed as international orders transit within the USA for safety and package integrity. Please be sure that if you use a consolidator for international shipping that the company is a reputable international consolidator. One that we recommend is APC Postal Logistics.

Prior to ordering, please check your country's import policies, regulations, and standards to ensure that coffee beans are allowed in as an import and if certain restrictions apply in-country destination. If your country has specific restrictions, policies, standards, etc., please make sure that you comply prior to ordering. We do not know every country's import regulations and we rely on the buying resident's responsibility to comply with their in-country regulations.

International Taxes and Duties

Your order will be shipped DDU (Delivered Duty Unpaid) from our facilities in the United States. This means that these fees are not included in the price of your purchase on our website. Therefore, you may incur duties, fees and import taxes upon delivery. This charge is determined by your local customs authority and must be paid to your local carrier or government in order to receive your order. These fees are not collected by RhoadsRoast Coffees. Any orders received back due to DDU unpaid will incur a re-stocking fee of 25% for the product plus postage return charges from the carrier for receipt back of the product due to unpaid DDU at the customer's destination.

On some occasions, if you have a FedEx or UPS account, you may receive an invoice from FedEx or UPS after the delivery of goods, for the charges they have paid on your behalf at the destination, plus a small administration fee. Depending on the carrier's procedure, FedEx or UPS will contact you and inform you of any duties and taxes to be paid prior to final delivery or if you pick the package up at their location(s), you will be notified there. USPS hands off the package to your local postal authority and delivery is based on the in-country postal processing. As we are unable to advise the amount of what these fees might be, we recommend to contact your country's customs office or tax agent for respective charges and rates on a package coming from outside of your country.
