Have an issue with your order?  We can make adjustments to an order within the first 60 minutes of an order being placed.  Our customer service operates Monday - Friday from 7:00am - 3:00pm PST.  If your request is sent, and received by our team, within that timeframe we will do what we can to accommodate you!  If it is received after this 60 minute window, your order is already being processed by our fulfillment team and we can't make any adjustments to your order.  

We make sure to ship every item in the most economical way possible. Shipping rope is expensive because it is HEAVY.  We select the most cost effective option when packing up your order and don’t charge you a cent extra for shipping.  We’ve recently discontinued our tiered flat rate shipping in order to live our values of transparency with our community.  Orders $150 and above receive free shipping within the US!

We have no control over USPS or UPS delays or delivery issues.  We are not responsible for packages that are determined by carrier's as “Undeliverable” or “Return to Sender”.  Any package that requires re-shipping for these reasons will incur additional shipping charges.  

Having difficulty locating your package?  Please use the tracking number shared in your shipping confirmation email and contact the mail carrier directly with any issues on your delivery status.
