Refusal of a shipment is not an acceptable way of returning/cancelling an order and may be subject to additional fees and penalties.

Event Décor Direct cannot be held liable for missed deliveries and does not guarantee a delivery time or window. You can call the carrier or check online (not all carriers support online tracking) for live updates once tracking information is active.

RECEIVING INSTRUCTIONS (FREIGHT/PALLET SHIPMENTS)

Event Decor Direct uses several different shipping companies, and we ship from several different warehouse locations. Your order may be shipped in several shipments.

There are times when an order must ship via freight. Not every freight carrier will call before delivery. Please be sure to follow your tracking and reach out to the carrier if you have any questions about the delivery date and time. All deliveries will require that an adult be present to inspect and sign for the shipment.

When receiving items via freight carrier, please be sure to read the BOL for the number of pieces you are to be receiving. If you are missing any boxes or pallets, you MUST write on the BOL that you are short pieces. Although freight damage is rare, we highly recommend that our customers thoroughly inspect each shipment at the time of delivery and make note of any abnormalities, shortages, or damage on the delivery receipt.

All boxes should be opened, inspected and pieces counted to ensure a complete delivery. Make the driver wait while you review and inspect the shipment - if the driver will not wait - DO NOT REFUSE SHIPMENT - write: “DRIVER REFUSED INSPECTION” when signing the delivery receipt.

Failure to note damage on the delivery receipt terminates all claims that can be filed on damaged merchandise.

Failure to follow the above instructions limits our ability to assist in the event of damage. Please forward this information to the party who will receive the shipment.

RECEIVING INSTRUCTIONS (UPS/FEDEX– non-freight shipments)

Please be sure to use the provided link to track when your package(s) will be delivered.

If you are not able to be available to the receive the package(s) yourself on the day it is estimated to deliver, it is advised that you utilize the carriers online support system (UPS MyChoice or FedEx Delivery Manager) which will allow you to have package(s) held or delivered on a different date.

If you allow the shipment to be delivered and you are not home, UPS/FedEx will deliver it as “DRIVER RELEASED” if the carrier company deems the location safe to do so.

They will attempt up to 3 times to deliver. If you are not available after these attempts the package(s) will be returned to our warehouse and you will be responsible for all shipping costs and any associated restocking fees. If you require a reshipment of the order you will have to place a new order.

DELIVERED BUT NOT DELIVERED

All our shipments include Tracking with Delivery Confirmation. If the tracking information confirms that the item has been delivered to the shipping address on the order, but you have not received it, please contact the carrier (UPS at 1 (800) 742-5877 or FedEx 1 (800) 463-3339) to investigate this issue.

We cannot be held accountable for packages where tracking information states the package has been delivered to your order address. If you suspect that your package has been stolen, please contact the proper authorities.

WRONG ADDRESS DISCLAIMER

It is the responsibility of the buyer to make sure that the shipping address is entered correctly. We do our best to speed up processing and shipping times. There is a very small-time gap to cancel/change your order. If you need to change your shipping address, please call us at 1.800.914.3538 or write to us at customer.service@eventdecordirect.com as soon as you place your order. We will do our best to make the change, however we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. If it's too late for our team to change the address in the order, we can attempt an address change with UPS. This does require additional fees that you are responsible for.

Extra Shipping Charges: If you upgraded your shipping and the package was returned to us due to an incorrect address and you would like a refund, you will not be reimbursed for the upgraded shipping fees.
