TRANSIT TIME INFORMATION

Be aware that shipping transit times start when a package
LEAVES OUR WAREHOUSE - not when the order is placed!
Order processing and fulfillment is usually complete within
1 Business Day from order placement.


BASIC INFORMATION

"How We Pack" and "How We Ship" are the two factors that can
effect the quality of your collectible after it leaves our warehouse.
Therefore, we take these two factors VERY SERIOUSLY!

How We Pack

We take packing your order so seriously that we created
a whole system to take the best care of your items!
We call it The Collectorate Shield Packing© system.

PRE-ORDER SHIPPING INFORMATION

Your order may contain both Available (In-Stock) and Pre-Order (Future Stock) items. As a standard policy we will ship items in your order as they become Available (In-Stock). That means items that are Available (In-Stock) when your order is placed will be shipped immediately. Any Pre-Order items will be shipped as they come in stock. Shipping charges will be accessed each time part of your order ships based upon the items shipping at that time.
Shipping for Pre-Orders is only estimated in the shopping cart.
Final shipping will be calculated when items actually arrive.

If you want us to hold the items in your order until they all become Available (In-Stock), you must send us an e-mail indicating that you want us to hold your order and send it as one shipment. You must send this e-mail at the same time you place your order, so that we receive the notification before order processing begins. If we receive notification after your order has processed, we may miss holding items that are already in stock.

If your order is on hold waiting for all your items to become Available (In-Stock), you will be charged for items as they come in stock. Shipping will be charged when the entire order is ready to ship.

If you need us to hold your order and ship it all at one time
or if you have questions, contact Customer Service
