SHIPPING: We are glad to use UPS Next Day, 2nd Day or 3 Day Select at the request of our customer. Give us a call to be sure we understand EXACTLY what you want and that you understand the cost. We charge ONLY what our Delivery services charge us...never an up-charge at Sunshine Gardens! Some International customers ask us to use EXPRESS International (EMS) even though the cost is greater...we charge only what the Post Office charges...and you should have your International package FASTER with this service.
A word about "Free Shipping!" As you probably know, there is nothing FREE about Shipping these days! Our price, if we offer "Free Shipping" must include the cost of shipping. Trouble is, if you are on the other side of the country from us...such as California, Oregon or Washington, Free Shipping may be a deal, since we have included the cost of shipping to you. Since we are in Florida, if you are in Georgia, Louisiana, New York or even New England, Free Shipping includes the cost of shipping your item to the far-away destination...when shipping to you in the nearer location costs less. Since shipping is figured on weight, in addition to location...we suggest that you give us a call to have this adjusted before you order. We always prefer to help you save money on shipping if we can! Please don't hesitate to call us at (941)575-0335!
Ship-to Locations: We ship most items to all 50 states of the United States. If you have a question as to whether or not we ship to your location, please contact us directly. We DO NOT charge extra for shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, etc.
We are glad to ship the least expensive way...under 4 pound packages can be shipped First Class International for a very reasonable fee, but we cannot ship Liquids by First Class...and usually delivery takes longer.
Sales Tax: We must, under Florida law, charge 7% Sales Tax on all items shipped to Florida.
Return Policy: We guarantee your satisfaction! We accept returns within a 2 week period for full refund. All returns must be unopened and in saleable condition.
Combined Shipping: We are glad to combine items to help you save on shipping! Please contact us to quote you on shipping for the items you want, to be sure you will pay only the needed amount. Our custom is to refund to the customer any excess charges greater than $3.
Packing: We take great pride in packing your purchases so that they will get to you safely. In general, each item is
placed into a ZipLock bag, wrapped in bubble wrap and placed into a NEW, strong carton with styrofoam peanuts. We use vinyl, bubble lined envelopes for small items.
