- Shipping & Delivery
At this time, The Ruptured Duck ships merchandise to locations within the United States and U.S. territories, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands. Additionally, The Ruptured Duck can ship to all four corners of the globe. No matter where you live, we have shipped to your area in the past. Certain restrictions may apply, but do not hesitate to ask! However, due to our inability to adequately insure packages to countries outside of the United States, we cannot be responsible for loss or damage. Therefore, the customer assumes all responsibility for the package once it has left our office. This includes all customs fees and duty charges.
Customs and import duties may be applied to International orders when the shipment reaches its destination. Such charges are the responsibility of the recipient of your order and vary from country to country. Contact your local customs office for details.
Shipping laws are different in each country. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to verify whether the country to which you are shipping permits the shipment of your products. The Ruptured Duck is not responsible for any direct, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages that arise from improper international shipping practices.
- Sales Tax
The Ruptured Duck charges sales tax for merchandise ordered on this Web site based on the applicable state sales tax rate and the location to which the order is being shipped.
- Return Policy
- All of our items are guaranteed original (pre-1945) to the period. We offer an unconditional money back guarantee regarding this principal. On items over $300, we offer, when asked, a written Certificate Of Authenticity (COA). This guarantee is exclusively for the person the item(s) are sold to and not transferable to subsequent owners. Should you decide to return any merchandise for ANY REASON, it must be returned within FIVE (5) days after you receive the order for a full refund (less shipping). The amount which will be refunded will be calculated in United States Dollars, just as the item was sold in United States Dollars. All returned items must be received in the same condition which they were sent. Tampering with, disassembling, altering or cleaning an item, or any other damage sustained in shipping voids any return privilege.
- Returns on items paid using a credit card will be subject to a 4% charge as this is what it costs me to process the credit card and I cannot recoup this expense.
