Special shipping requests: If you have any special requests for FedEx or for our shipping department, you must make a note in the comments box during checkout. Additionally, we recommend that you email us with any requests for our shipping department to confirm that it is on our radar. We will do our best to meet all of your requests, however, this is not always possible. Additionally, keep in mind that FedEx is an independent company that is out of our control.
How we ship
Our products are perishable and frozen, and require special handling. All orders are shipped in insulated containers, with dry ice to keep your KOL Foods meat at a safe temperature.
All orders are shipped signature release: We require that all our orders are shipped signature release, so no signature is required. If no one is home to receive the order from our carrier, the driver will leave the order at your door. This signifies acceptance of the order the same as a signature. Although we ship our orders to remain frozen until 8 hours after the expected delivery time, we recommend that someone be there within the designated time frame to accept the order and properly refrigerate/freeze it.
If you live in a multi-unit building and wish to require a signature, please indicate this in the comments field during checkout. Please keep in mind that if you are not there to sign for the package, FedEx will not leave the package.
If your order is a gift, please be sure to alert the recipient that something perishable will be delivered via FedEx.
Order Cancellation & Refunds: Orders can be cancelled if they have not been shipped out of our facility. Once an order leaves our facility, we cannot call it back. If you wish to cancel, it is best to call and email for confirmation. Cancellations may be subject to a $25 restocking fee. Unfortunately we cannot accept returns as we cannot resell products after they have left our facility. Please see here for our full Refunds policy.
