Sales Tax
We are only registered to collect sales tax in the State of Nevada. Shipments that are destined to any Nevada location will be charged 7.375% for State sales Tax. The only exception is if you are going to be reselling these items. If you are you will need to contact us.

No Post Office Boxes for UPS orders.
UPS will not ship to Post Office Boxes. Please keep this in mind when ordering, if you list a P.O. Box we will have to contact you for another shipping address, and this will delay your order by at least TWO business days.

Other Tips for your safety and security
Next Day Air ordered on a Thursday would ship on Friday, and the next business day for Next Day Air Delivery would be Monday. All orders will be shipped the next business morning, anything received before 10am (PST) will be shipped that day. Please think of safety when shipping to an address. If it is unsafe to leave a box out front, you may want to receive the box personally instead of letting UPS drop it at your door. If UPS shows the package has been received, and you cannot find the package, then you receiving your product could be delayed by 30 days or more due to the UPS procedures. This process is completely up to UPS to fulfill and we have our hands tied at this point.

Damaged Items in transit
You MUST report damaged goods to us within 3 days of receiving the package. UPS has a policy on damaged goods and we only have a certain amount of time to get them to pay for the damage. If you see that a box is damaged from shipping, please open the box in front of the carrier and inspect the product. If the product is broken you should refuse the shipment to expedite receiving another product from us.

Receipt of Freight by Common Carrier
For your benefit, inspect ALL merchandise before signing, or write ‘Not for Hidden Damages’ on the bill of lading. Otherwise, the carrier denies damage claims and we cannot be liable. By signing, you are accepting possession of the products and they are now your property.

Malfunctioning Device
Rarely a product may be shipped from us that is damaged with no outward appearance of damage to the box. This most likely indicates that the product was damaged from the manufacturer while it was being made and packaged. In this case, claims for damaged products inside what appears to be an undamaged box or packaging must be made within 3 days after receipt of the product(s).

In any event, if you should receive any damaged product, please contact us ASAP by email (email@pondstuff.com) or telephone (1-775-358-5688). Include how the package was received, how you opened the package, when you noticed the damage, and on what date you received and discovered the damage. Any additional information is helpful in order to process the claim.

Refused Orders
Products that are refused when UPS or other carriers attempt to deliver the product(s) are assessed a minimum 20% restocking fee plus all shipping charges.

Expedited orders
If you need something tomorrow you need to order NEXT DAY *AIR. If you call us (1-775-358-5688) for a fee we can ship your order the same day (if you are calling after 10am PST and before 5pm PST)

*Next Day Air has multiple options - Early A.M., Normal, Saver*
