Special shipping requests:
If you have any special requests for FedEx or for our shipping department, you must make a note in the comments box during checkout. Additionally, we recommend that you email us with any requests for our shipping department to confirm that it is on our radar. We will do our best to meet all of your requests, however, this is not always possible. Additionally, keep in mind that FedEx is an independent company that is out of our control.
How we ship
Our products are perishable and frozen, and require special handling.
All orders are shipped in insulated containers, with dry ice to keep your KOL Foods meat at a safe temperature.
All orders are shipped signature release:
We require that all our orders are shipped signature release, so no signature is required. If no one is home to receive the order from our carrier, the driver will leave the order at your door. This signifies acceptance of the order the same as a signature. Although we ship our orders to remain frozen until 8 hours after the expected delivery time, we recommend that someone be there within the designated time frame to accept the order and properly refrigerate/freeze it.
If you are a retail customer ordering over 100 lbs of our products, and ship the order by FedEx Ground Service, we will refund the shipping cost! This offer applies only if the product weight is over 100 lbs - not the shipping weight, which includes the weight of the packaging. Select Ground Service during checkout, and prepay the shipping cost. We will refund the shipping cost within 10 business days of your receipt of the shipment. Offer valid only in FedEx Ground Service areas (see above).
For orders greater than 130 lbs (shipping weight), please place multiple orders. For orders greater than 24 items, please place multiple orders.
Order Cancellation & Returns:
Orders can be cancelled if they have not been shipped out of our facility. Once an order leaves our facility, we cannot call it back. If you wish to cancel, it is best to call and email for confirmation. Cancellations may be subject to a $25 restocking fee. Unfortunately we cannot accept returns as we cannot resell products after they have left our facility.
