Shipping & Returns

Shipping
Following order payment verification, orders are normally processed and shipped within one to two business days, unless the store is closed for a brief break, and usually within just a few hours if placed during normal business hours (Tuesday-Saturday 11-7, Sunday 11-5, closed on Mondays). 

Orders are processed and shipped in the order they are received. You'll receive an email with a tracking number once your order has been packed and labeled by one of our associates. Keep in mind that it may take 1 to 2 business days for the tracking pages' information to become available and start showing acceptance and status updates from the shipping carrier. Please note that while USPS does estimate arrival times, they do not guarantee a delivery time, if your order is a rush or requires special attention we recommend getting in touch immediately to go over the options.

International Customers: We offer DHL Express Worldwide and USPS First Class International, GlobalPost International, Priority Mail International and Priority Mail Express International. Please note: it is illegal in the United States to falsely declare the value of goods on the customs forms, and we politely refuse to break the law. Buyer agrees that the actual value of their order will be listed in full on the customs forms. Control Voltage does not include VAT with any pricing, nor do we pay import duties or import taxes - all of these will be the responsibility of the customer. We do not ship to 3rd-party logistics firms or re-shipping companies, orders such as these will be cancelled and the charges will be refunded. PLEASE NOTE: USPS First Class Mail International and USPS GlobalPost are the slowest shipping options, which 1) don't always come with tracking, 2) come with no insurance, 3) have no set delivery time and may take over a month to arrive, 4) are not eligible for claims against lost parcels. 

Expedited Domestic Shipping: If your order is a rush or requires special attention please email us immediately to go over the options. The cutoff time for USPS Express orders to ship on same day as the order is placed is 11:00am PST, Tuesday-Saturday. Since USPS doesn’t do pickups on Sunday and our shop is closed on Mondays, orders placed after 11am PST Saturday may not be shipped until the following Tuesday. You will still receive a notification and tracking number during this time as soon as the order is packed.

Paid shipping orders come with minimal insurance, if you require additional insurance please get in touch to discuss available options. In the rare event that your order never arrives, there's a 15-day waiting period after the estimated date of delivery until USPS’s lost parcel claims cases are eligible to be initiated. Refunds and or store credit will not be issued until shipping carrier insurance claims cases are closed. Customer must notify Control Voltage of lost or missing items within 30 days from the order date. Control Voltage will not be held responsible for lost or stolen shipments.

Customer agrees not to "refuse delivery" of any order from Control Voltage, as refused-delivery shipments can take weeks or even months to return back to the sender. Customer understands refused-delivery orders will only be refunded when the order is received back at Control Voltage, tested and inspected. 

In-Store Pickup
We offer in-store pickup for those who wish to check out online and complete their order in-person; PLEASE NOTE: the actual credit card owner or Paypal account holder will need to be present and will need to show their government-issued photo identification and the original credit card used for payment for verification.

Qualifying orders 1lb and under will be shipped via USPS's Ground Advantage or USPS Priority, orders over 1lb may be shipped via USPS Priority or Ground Advantage, UPS Ground or FedEx Ground or a similar service. Standard Shipping orders may provide minimal insurance, if you require additional insurance please get in touch to discuss available options. In most cases Standard Shipping orders are packed and shipped with the same promptness as paid shipping orders and you will receive a tracking number as soon as the label is created. Please note that USPS does not guarantee delivery dates and or times, if your order is a rush or requires special attention we recommend getting in touch immediately to go over the paid shipping options. Some extremely large and or heavy products are not eligible for free shipping, contact us prior to placing your order if you have any questions.
