Shipping & Returns

All shipping and handling fees must be paid prior to processing your order. Please allow 1-2 weeks for fulfillment. All shipments are sent using either USPS First Class, Air Parcel Rates, or domestic Priority Mail methods.

We package our items very well and have shipped hundreds of orders. Periodically item shipments are lost in the mail. If it is more than 4 weeks from the time you received shipping notification, please contact us about replacements.

We charge insurance at a rate of $1.00USD per $100USD of order value.

We are not responsible for loss or damage for orders which are not insured. Insurance is optional and must be selected during the checkout process.

We will not refund or replace any order for which the delivery confirmation status indicates a received status or for which the customer did not provide a complete or accurate shipping address.

The amount covered by insurance is the value of the items in the order and does not include any coverage for sentimental losses or any expense incurred as a result of the loss.

Failure of the insured to cooperate in any required research or inquiry as it relates to the fulfillment of a claim will result in suspension of coverage for that order and denial of claim.

Insured packages will be re-shipped or refunded at our option based on customer input, available stock, and other influencing factors.

Upon re-shipment or refund of the order, The Michigan Geocaching Store shall be released from any and all responsibility for future consideration of insurance claims against the order ID in question.
