Please note that selecting the proper shipping method is the responsibility of the purchaser. You will have to select one or the other shipping method during your checkout process. In case a package is lost and it is not trackable or recoverable due to the shipping method selected, New Generation Hobbies cannot undertake the responsibility of replacing this lost package free of charge if there is no insurance coverage on it. If a package has been shipped insured and lost, the value of the insurance can be recovered from Canada Post. In that case, New Generation Hobbies will resend the package with the same content as the original. However if the package was lost and the shipping method selected by the customer does not allow us to recover the value of the package (i.e. no insurance, no tracking shipping method was selected) from Canadapost or UPS, we cannot be held responsible to replace this package free of charge.
Depending on the shipping method selected, we will ship your package as soon as possible. Turnaround time for shipping should be no more than 24 hours. Orders received before 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time will be shipped on the next business day. Orders received after 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time will be shipped the day after the next business day with exception of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please note that orders received on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be shipped out Monday morning.
Some spam and firewall filters depending on personal settings will filter out our E-mail usually for customers from the Russian Federation. If you have not received any communication from us within 48 hours of your order placed, please log into our website with your account and check out the history of your order. If we cannot communicate with you through E-mail we will post all updates to your order in the order history page.
