Shipping/ Returns

PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL REGULARLY after you have placed an order. You will receive an invoice soon after placing your order, and an email with tracking once the order is ready to ship. If not, you may want to check your "spam" or "Junk" email folders, as we find this is a major culprit of those not having received these emails.


IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE US AND WISH TO PLACE AN ORDER, please email us for information and the items you wish to order. We can then send an estimate of shipping costs. Most orders are processed by email and then shipped by USPS 1st Class International Mail, (if under 4 lbs.)or Priority, to avoid excessive customer tolls, that may arise using UPS, Fedex. Because of added fees and extra time needed in filing customs, we've been forced to add a $5.00 handling and processing fee on all international orders.
Orders in the US are either shipped by UPS Ground, Fedex or USPS -Since our shipping system is price based, you may find that sometimes the cart will display shipping costs that may not seem to be in line with what you are ordering. If you feel the shipping costs are high related to what you are purchasing, you can call or email us and we will do our best to adjust the charges, if they are warranted - EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY ORDERED, WE CAN STILL CREDIT YOU FOR some CHARGES if we are contacted right away.  Invoices will reflect labeling as Total Survival Enterprises. This is due to the fact that we have more than 1 website.

Please Note: On some of our promotionals offering FREE Shipping you will sometimes still see shipping charges applied on the invoice - you will not be charged for these on your final billing. However, if you should order additional products along with the specials, you will be charged regular shipping for the additional products. You may wish to make separate orders, if this is not suitable for you.

Many orders are processed and shipped the same day. However, sometimes orders will contain items that are on backorder, and it is likely they will be shipped in two separate orders, with backorders to be shipped once back in stock. We try our best to keep items in stock, and would like to process every order immediately as they come in, however, with thousands of items, it is very challenging, as manufacturers continually fall behind in their production. This is obviously passed down the line, from distributor to us, and ultimately the customer. We do not like backorders, and work hard to avoid them, but this is not always possible, so we please ask for your patience. Most orders will take anywhere from 1 - 7 days to process before being shipped out for deliver - again the majority of orders go out in 24-48 hrs. We will do everything in our power to expedite the process. If you wish to have faster shipping please call our toll free number, or use our email address with your order stating such. If you wish to have signature verification for receiving your order, please contact us, preferably by email asap when ordering. You will be notified should an order be backordered or take longer than usual.

California will be charged applicable sales tax.

Although we do our best to keep prices down, and are constantly looking for better pricing to pass on to the consumer, some prices are still subject to change without prior notice. Our profit margin is generally small, so if this happens to be the case on some product you have ordered, we will contact you of the change before shipping, so that you may cancel your order, if you wish. If you have other concerns on any of our pricing, we would like to hear from you. Again, we may or may not be able to help, depending on circumstances. We do appreciate and value your business with us.
