Shipping

Welcome to Sun King Discs! At Sun King, we're 100% committed to providing you with the best selection, great prices, and fast, affordable shipping. Here are some particulars that separate us from the rest:

  • FREE SHIPPING at $12.00! - Orders of $12.00 or more qualify for FREE Standard shipping in the continental US of A. We will choose the standard shipping method (USPS First Class, Priority Mail or UPS Ground), but if you desire a specific level of service on these orders (i.e. 2nd Day Air), then you may select a different option for an additional charge.
  • Fast Shipping - All orders* leave our facility within one business day. Generally, all orders placed before 3pm EST ship the same day.
  • Affordable Shipping - We pride ourselves on offering the greatest number of shipping options available anywhere. Standard shipping starts at just $3.50 (on order less than $12), but you can sepecify UPS, US Postal Service, and expedited shipping methods at varying prices to suit your needs based on where you live.
  • Rush Processing - Want to jump the stack? Select Rush Processing at checkout for an additional $2.00 fee and your order will be the next we pick. Honest!
  • Live Inventory - Sun King was one of the first companies to offer a live inventory option and our newly overhauled website continues that tradition.
  • Protective Shipping - We know you're gear arriving in perfect condition is important to you. All orders with a grand total of $19.99 or more will ship in a box, including single discs! Orders less than $19.99 will ship in a bubble mailer.
  • Eclectic Inventory - Rarely will you find another retailer that offers a mix of stock discs, collector discs, "spy before you buy" on tie-dyed discs, "prevously thrown" discs and pre-orders all on one website. We do!

 

* Drop shipments are excluded. Also, in instances where we need to contact you about your order, our ability to ship quickly will be dependent on the time it takes to receive a response from you.

Order Exception Handling — Products

We strive for excellence in order fulfillment, but occasionally experience problems due to the complexities of managing our vast inventory closely. In the event that something you ordered may not be available, here is how we will handle it:

Golf Discs:

If we do not have a disc in the weight or color ordered , then we will contact you to review options. We will not substitute a different weight without asking you first.

Ultimate Discs:

If we do not have the color you ordered, then we will contact you to review options. We will not substitute a different color Ultimate disc without asking you first.

Disc Bags:

If we do not have the bag color you ordered, then we will contact you to review options. We will not substitute a different color bag without asking you first.

Disc Baskets:

If we do not have the basket in the color you ordered (i.e. for the Skillshot, etc.), then we will contact you to review options. We will not substitute a different color basket without asking you first.

Clothing:

If we do not have the size and/or color you ordered, then we will contact you to review options. We will not substitute a different size or color shirt, hat, etc. without asking you first.

If you are concerned in any way about how your order will be filled, then please ADD A NOTE TO YOUR ORDER AT CHECKOUT. We read every note and put your note on the receipt with our response to show you that we read it.

Order Exception Handling — Addresses

Providing us with your correct name, address, city, state, zip code AND phone number is VERY IMPORTANT. Selecting the proper method of delivery for your address is also VERY IMPORTANT. USPS First Class/Priority Mail & UPS Ground are our standard flat-rate shipping options. However, UPS does not deliver to PO Box or General Delivery addresses. It is YOUR responsibility to select the proper method of shipping for your address. If you provide a PO Box address and select any UPS delivery method, then YOUR ORDER WILL BE DELAYED, and we can not honor our next business day shipping guarantee.

In the event that we need to contact you about your order, we will contact you first via e-mail, then via phone if no response is received within 24 hours to discuss other alternatives with you. Please note that in these rare instances where we must contact you prior to shipping your order, that our ability to promptly contact you may impact our ability to ship your order the same or next business day.

Standard Shipping (Contiguous US States)

Standard shipping is the most economical way for you to receive your order. By selecting "Standard Shipping" at checkout, you are saving shipping charges because it allows us to send your order at the lowest cost to us. About 85% of "standard shipping" orders are shipped through the US Mail and about 15% through UPS Ground. The rules and rates for each carrier vary greatly by delivery address and the delivery timeframes are similar to most locations, so by allowing us to choose the exact delivery method, it enables us to pass along the savings to you.

Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii

Orders shipped to Alaska and Hawaii are eligible for flat-rate shipping of $4.00 for single-disc orders or $14.99 for larger orders. To these states, your order will be shipped via US mail and you may not receive a tracking number. Orders shipping to Alaska and Hawaii via flat-rate shipping are not eligible for our order shipping timeframe guarantee. If you are placing a time-sensitive order to these states, then you must select a UPS Expedited shipping method (UPS 2-day for example).

We DO NOT ship baskets to Alaska or Hawaii.


Canadian & International Orders

At this time we only offer shipping to Canada with a maximum weight limit of 4lbs via USPS First Class International. We will contact customers with orders weighing over 4lbs to give them options. If after 3 attempts we cannot get a hold of a customer with an order going to Canada that weighs over 4 lbs, the order will be cancelled and refunded. 


Package Tracking and Undelivered Shipments

When your order is shipped (generally within 1 business day), we will complete your order in our system and you will receive an automated e-mail with your package tracking information. This automated e-mail will be from "customerservice@sunkingdiscs.com". You can also find this information on this web site by logging in with your user ID/password and clicking on the Order History Link. It is THE CUSTOMERS responsibility to track your package and plan for its arrival. If your order does not arrive, then we adhere to the following process.

If your package was shipped via US Postal Service:

First, we will track your package to determine its status. If the US Postal Service states that the package has not been delivered, we will contact the US Postal Service to determine its true status or advise you to contact your local post office to provide additional information. If the US Postal Service is unable to deliver your package because the address you provided is incorrect or incomplete, the package will be returned to us within 3 weeks. If after 3 weeks (contiguous US states), the package has still not been delivered or returned to us, we can assume the US Postal Service has lost your package. We will then issue a gift certificate in the amount of the entire order. If the US Postal Service states that the package has been delivered, we will assume the package has been delivered and will not reship your order or issue a gift certificate. In these instances, your package has essentially been stolen or is otherwise missing, and we recommend you follow-up with the carrier and your local authorities.

If your package was shipped via UPS:

First, we will track your package to determine its status. If UPS states that the package has not been delivered, we will either contact UPS to determine its true status, or advise you to contact them to provide additional information. Sometimes it is clear that they need additional information on your location to complete delivery. If UPS indicates that the order has been successfully delivered, then we will initiate a trace of the delivery. A trace sends the driver out to the delivery location to verify the address where the package was left. A trace takes 8 business days to complete. About 50% of the time a problem is discovered that results in correct delivery of the original shipment.

If the address you provided is not correct or incomplete, you will be responsible for an $11 UPS address change fee. If the package is returned to us, once we receive the package we will issue a gift certificate in the amount of your order less the total shipping fees and any restocking fees.

Once a trace is complete, either the original shipment will have been delivered to you, or it will be declared lost or damaged by the carrier. If the shipment is lost or damaged, we will file a claim and re-ship your order at no cost to you or if the items are no longer available, refund your money. If the shipment is determined to have been correctly delivered to the address by the carrier, then we will do the following based on the shipping method you selected:

  • No Signature Requested (our default shipping method) - If you did not add a note to your order requesting signature, then we cannot reship your order. In these instances, your package has essentially been stolen or is otherwise missing, and we recommend you follow-up with the carrier and your local authorities.
  • Signature Requested - If you requested that signature be required upon delivery of your package (read shipping methods above for instructions), then we will file a claim and re-ship your order at no cost to you once we have received verification of the shipment status from the carrier.

 

The vast majority of our shipments arrive at the destination without any incident. We ship tens of thousands of orders each year and have very few problems with deliveries. We are spelling out these policies to make our customers aware of our process for handling delivery disputes. This policy is required because of experiences we have had with customers who live in high risk areas, but do not take the proper steps to ensure the safe receipt of their order.

Returns

You can return any item that is in new condition within 30 days of purchase. Simply send it back to us along with a copy of your receipt. Once we receive the items, we will issue a gift certificate for the total cost of each item returned less the original shipping charges. If you request a refund to your credit card in writing, we will refund your card for the cost of each item returned less a 10% restocking fee.
