Caution & Care

Here is an info-graphic to compare pre-order and in-stock item's shipping times.
(*IMPORTANT NOTE: Please keep in mind that sometimes tracking can be misleading. The first package scan may be upon arrival at a regional center near your address. This is common when packages are bulk processed by the USPS, FedEx or UPS. The first package scan may not happen until it is successfully delivered to your residence. So, if your tracking is not updating as expected don't panic.)
Tracking information will be sent out after the item has been shipped out. If your tracking number has the character “UM” then it’s not 100% trackable. However, we can assure you that your package is still in transit. The tracking URL will inform you once the package is successfully delivered.
1. SGS is not responsible for any custom taxes or fees associated with the packages. By US law, we must list all contents in shipments. Cost for additional customs & taxes vary by country. (Ex. For Europe, any order over 15 EUR ($19.17 USD) will get charged customs fee and orders over 135 EUR (~$150 USD) will be charged an additional import tax.) For more information about custom taxes please contact your local customs tax office.
2. Customer is responsible for packages withheld by local customs office and any customs tax applied for the pick-up. In the case of a returned item due to rejected delivery, customer will be charged the shipping amount + 20% restocking fee.
3. EU customers will also be responsible for VAT (value added tax) fees on top of the customs fees until further notice.
Unfortunately, we only have access to as much information that is available on the tracking page. The carrier is responsible for any lost mail and we cannot issue any refunds on lost packages. The most we can do is file a case. We apologize for any inconvenience in this regard.
Shipping Address Changes
Once your order ships, we are unable to make any changes to the shipping address. You should still be able to update your address on the USPS website, though. If your package returns to us due to an incorrect address, it will be canceled and refunded and you will be charged a 20% restocking fee.
