More information about recent changes:

Unfortunately, all carriers have upped their shipping prices for the 2017 year.  Due to this, we are forced to readjust the shipping charges upward by $0.51 for domestic and it is still to be determined what the new rates will be for international orders as of January 23rd, 2017.   

 

*We have a distribution center which uses carriers other than the USPS as the starting carrier.  The phone number is subject to FedEx's ,  UPS's  or DHL Private Policy or other shipping providers as needed.  We will not use your phone number in any other way including, but not limited to marketing.  We do not give or sell your information to any other 3rd party, except when required for shipping purposes, as mentioned above.

*** For International Customers: We are required by law to have a phone number in order to process your shipment. Without it, we will not be able to ship to you.  The phone number is used for Custom's purposes as portrayed by USPS.com  and/or DHL Policies. We will not use your phone number in any other way including, but not limited to marketing.  We do not give or sell your information to any other 3rd party, except when required for shipping purposes, as mentioned above.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Does my shipment require a signature?

No.  With our change in the way we distribute, signature confirmation is not required for any order at this time.  However, we reserve the right to require a signature if we think the order has been flagged as possible fraud.  This is to protect both parties from fraud.

2) Can we request that a signature be required for delivery?

These are the services provided and whether or not a signature can be requested:

Standard: No, at this time signatures on our regular shipment speeds are not available.

Express Saver (coming soon)

2nd Day Air: Yes, There is a $2 fee that will be paid in a separate transaction for any orders under $55.  Orders over $55 will have the fee waived.

Overnight: Yes, there is a $2 fee that will be paid in a separate transactions for any orders under $55.  Orders over $55 will have the fee waived

 

3) My package was returned to GobiGear Even though it never reached my address.  What happens next?

For any shipment that is returned to us, we usually do an investigation on to what went wrong. This can take up to 2 weeks. If we find that it is the carrier's fault, we will confirm your address with you and try again.  However, if it is determined that it went unclaimed, invalid address or any other user error that was not corrected prior to original shipment, there is a new $5 dollar shipping charge along with a $4 processing charge for regular shipping. These fees may be waived on a case by case basis.

If you were a UPS 2nd Day customer, you may have an eligible credit for a regular shipment with no further fees.

4) I noticed that the price for shipping for regular and 2 day shipping has increased.  Why is that?

Unfortunately, there were price increases across the board that takes effect in 2017.  We evaluated and determined the proper increase.  This was a hard decision because we do understand that shipping charges can not be avoided for a business like ours.  We are always evaluating our options and adjust based off of what we can do.  As for UPS 2-day air, we decided that the base amount will increase while keeping the bigger orders the same as the cost difference is not as drastic.
