THINGS TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT SHIPPING LOVE BITES
All Love Bites must be handled and shipped with the utmost care. Below is a general guideline as to how we accomplish this. Packaging and methods may differ based on your proximity to our Oregon headquarters.
CHEESECAKES: We treat shipping our cheesecakes just like we would treat shipping ice cream. Cheesecakes will arrive in an insulated box with a block of dry ice, which in most cases will have completely dissipated by the time it reaches your doorstep.
Cheesecakes must be shipped via overnight or two-day air.
ALL OTHER DESSERT PRODUCTS: Regardless of the length of their journey, our staff will make sure they have the appropriate amount of necessary coolant to get them to your home intact.
SHIPPING WINDOWS AND ORDER CUT OFF TIMES:
- Because our products cannot sit on a truck or in a warehouse over the weekend, we only ship Monday through Wednesday. We can also ship orders overnight on Thursdays.
- Daily order cut off time is 12pm PST. Orders placed after that time will be shipped out the following shipping day.
- You must be present at the time of delivery, otherwise we've had parcel take the package back to distribution where it sits before they try to redelivery it to you.
What if my order arrives damaged?
Love Bites by Carnie guarantee our desserts 100%. If they arrive damaged or compromised in any way, you will receive a full refund or order replacement free of charge.
What about returning or exchanging non-perishable items?
Maybe the size is wrong…maybe it’s not what you expected…maybe its broken..DOESN’T MATTER! We’ve got your back. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take care of you. We will either replace the item or refund your purchase in full.
What are your shipping charges?
Shipping charges will be calculated on an order-by-order basis determined by your order size and zip code.
When will I receive my order?
LBBC ships via UPS.
Cheesecake orders received by 12:00 pm PST will ship out same day using 2nd day air. Orders placed after 12:00pm PST will ship out the following shipping day. Standard shipping for 2-day air shipments sent Monday-Wednesday will be delivered Wednesday-Friday. Overnight delivery rates are also available, contact us for details. You can also request a future ship date by noting your preferred date of arrival. You must be present at the time of delivery to avoid UPS returning your perishable package back to their warehouse where it may sit several days before they attempt to re-deliver.
Cake Bites, Crumb Cakes and Brownie orders received by 12:00pm PST will ship out same day via UPS ground or second-day air depending on the weather or type of other goods ordered. East Coast expect up to a 5 day ship time if shipped via ground.
Will I receive an order confirmation and tracking information?
After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation. When your order is shipped, you will receive order-tracking information. You can use this information to track when your package is shipped and to inquire when it arrived.
Can you guarantee the delivery date?
While we want you to receive your desserts on your anticipated date, we cannot guarantee the arrival date as we ship through a 3rd party, UPS. If you are planning a special event, we suggest ordering 1 week prior to your event to insure timely delivery. For maximum freshness, Love Bites by Carnie desserts are able to be stored in a sealed container for up to one month in your freezer.
