International Shipments:

Please be advised that our published shipping rates do not reflect any customs, fees, or taxes the destination country may charge upon receipt of the package. Our packages are shipped with a commercial invoice which states the amount you paid for the merchandise. Duties and import taxes vary according to the country where the merchandise is received. We do not collect taxes or charge you for duties. Any taxes or fees you may have to pay will be collected by your customs authorities. Please contact your appropriate government agency for more information.

FedEx Shipments (Domestic):

Please be advised that when you are shipping to a residential address, you will experience an inflated shipping rate. If possible, have your packages shipped to a business or commercial address for a lower rate. Sleeve City does not require signatures on their packages; however, some drivers may require a signature in accordance with the policies set forth by FedEx. If possible, we recommend shipping your order where someone is available to sign for it. FedEx will attempt deliver up to three times and if the recipient is still unavailable, the package will be returned to us.

FedEx International Shipments:

FedEx International Shipments are sent with postage prepaid by Sleeve City. Duties and Taxes are the responsibility of the recipient. FedEx International charges various taxes and fees when delivering internationally. If the recipient fails to pay these charges, Sleeve City reserves the right to deduct those charges from the amount of the refund, if applicable. Orders over a specified dollar amount will require a signed consent of this agreement before the order will be released. In the event that the destination country charges an abandonment or return fee, those charges will be deducted from any funds that may be owed as a refund.
