UMAi Dry Shipping Policy
Thank you for ordering on our website (umaidry.com, drybagsteak.com, artisanmeatkit.com, or dryagepro.com).
Following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy.
Order processing time
Most orders are processed within 48 hours. Orders are not shipped on weekends or holidays. Between January and August 2021, 47% of orders were shipped the same day, 85% were shipped the next day, and the rest of our orders are shipped within 48 hours.
You will receive tracking information via email and/or SMS the moment that your order has been shipped.
Shipping rates & delivery estimates
Shipping options and costs for your order will be calculated and displayed at checkout. As much as possible, the shipping rate you pay reflects close to the actual cost of post or courier. International orders are sent DDU, meaning the customer is responsible for any importation fees or duties.
Post is generally shipped with USPS First Class Package. Transit time is slow, there is no traceability and no insurance. For international orders, no tracking updates are done between departure from the US, and passage through your countries Customs processing. Often the last scan is done at your local post office, pending payment of duties and local taxes.
USPS Priority and UPS are generally faster and more traceable. Opting in to Route for package tracking will give you the best insight into your order status. Scroll down for more information on Route.
Courier services, DHL, UPS, FedEx provide speed, transparency and, often, insurance. You should be aware, however, that these are more likely to assess import fees in additional to any duties or taxes.
The domestic U.S., U.S. Territories, and APO/FPO/DPO customers may choose between USPS First Class (7-10 days), USPS Priority Mail (est. 2-5 days), or FedEx Ground.
International customers may choose between USPS First Class International (est. 10-45 days), USPS Priority International Mail (est. 7-20 days) or a courier service such as DHL Express Worldwide (2-14 days) or UPS Expedited (2-16 days) for speedy, traceable, insured shipping. Some regions of the world have proven so risky that courier service is the only shipping option.
Shipment confirmation & Order tracking
You will receive a Shipment Confirmation email once your order has shipped containing your tracking number(s). The tracking number will be active within 24 hours. If you are tracking your order with Route, scroll down for more information.
NOTE: Delivery delays can and will occur.
Customs, Duties, and Taxes
All international orders are sent DDU (Delivered Duty Unpaid). UMAi Dry is not responsible for any customs and taxes applied to your order. All fees imposed during or after shipping are the customer's responsibility (tariffs, taxes, etc.). If your shipment is delayed, you may need to check with your local authorities to clear the package for duties, taxes, and handling fees.
UMAi Dry is not liable for any products damaged or lost during shipping. If you received your order damaged, please contact the shipment carrier to file a claim.
Save all packaging materials and damaged goods before filing a claim.
