Shipping Policy

General Information
House of Chess usually ships the item to any part of the world within 5-6 days after receiving the order but it could vary in the event of Christmas, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Father's Day, or any other occasions when there is a huge rush of orders.
The order processing time is shown on the product page or before checkout deemed correct in lieu of the regular processing time of 5-6 days.
Owing to the huge variety of cribbage boards that we manufacture, sometimes all of them are not available at our US warehouse. In that case, your items will be directly shipped from our factory in INDIA at no additional cost by FedEx International Priority / DHL Express Service or any other logistics. Delivery Time is 5 to 6 days for all American States including Hawaii & Alaska. You will also get the tracking details for this service.

Shipping within the United States
All the items are shipped via FedEx/DHL. House of Chess will send a shipping confirmation email to the email address provided by you at the time of placing the order.

Shipping Charges to Hawaii & Alaska
We don't charge an extra shipping charge in the case of Hawaii & Alaska and the same charges are applied which are mentioned on our website.

Shipping outside the United States
For a shipping address outside the US, the shipping company may vary from country to country. However, House of Chess will send a shipping confirmation email to your email address provided by you at the time of placing the order. You will also get the tracking details for this service.

Customs Duty, Taxes & Clearance Charges
For a shipping address outside the US, the buyer may be charged customs duty, taxes, and clearance charges as and if applicable in their country. These charges are not included in the item's cost as displayed on our website and shall be borne by the buyer. For further details on these charges, we request you check your country's customs regulations before proceeding with the order.

Delivery Time

Although, we assure your ordered items will reach your door steps within 4 to 5 days after we dispatch from our warehouse.

Safe Shopping

When you shop at HouseofChess.com, you never have to worry about credit card safety. We guarantee that every transaction you make will be safe. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that works with Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and AOL browsers, so that only HouseofChess.com can read a buyer's personal information.

Online purchases are statistically safer than using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Technical experts state that online purchases are far safer than traditional credit card transactions because the information is immediately encrypted into a scrambled message that can only be decrypted by an authorized computer.

Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at HouseofChess.com while using the secure server.

In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
