Our responsibility for uninsured items ends at the post office. We are not responsible for items lost or misplaced by the post office. In the very rare event that an item goes missing, we will gladly file a search request with the post office, as you should too, but we cannot replace items lost in the mail or stolen from your mailbox. If you would like insurance on your package, it is your responsibility to request and pay for insurance. Insurance rates are as follows: For Up to $50 insurance = $1.75, $50-$100 = $2.75, $100-$200 = $3.75
How much is shipping for my items(s)?
For eBay purchases, please check the calculator on the "shipping" tab for shipping rates to your zip code or Country.
For internet customers (www.CostumeHunters.com), if you live in the US, there is a Shipping Rate located before checkout, when you enter your correct zip code. For other Countries, please contact us for better shipping quotes.
Accessory items are available for cheaper shipping when you Purchase a Costume from us at the same time. Accessories are usually not that heavy so the shipping on them will be $2 added to the costume shipping...unless otherwise noted in the description.
All shipping quotes stated in the shipping calculator is the actual amount the Post Office charges, plus a small 75 cents for "handling". This amount helps us recoup money spent on shipping labels, envelopes, boxes, and printer ink. Also, we take everything to the Post Office ourselves (they do not pick up)...so part of the handling charge helps offset the gas we spend driving to the Post Office every day.
Do you combine shipping?
Combined Shipping Rates are displayed in your "Cart".
Do you have additional measurements for costumes?
We have thousands of costumes in stock. We happily list the size information provided by the manufacturer, but due to the volume of orders and emails, we are not able to provide additional measurements.
