DOMESTIC SHIPPING We ship with USPS, UPS, and FedEx. Delivery times are generally within two to five days from when your package is picked up by the carrier. During checkout you have the option to upgrade shipping with USPS Priority Mail, UPS, or FedEx. Delivery times are not guaranteed by the shipping carrier or Six Moon Designs. SMD has little to no control over the delivery time once your package is in the carriers’ possession.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING Due to processing time and scheduled pickup times, we cannot guarantee overnight/expedited shipping. If you need to expedite your order, we recommend contacting us so we can explore the best possible option for you. We have found UPS to be the most reliable for overnight/next day shipping.

SEAM SEALING SERVICE Orders with seam sealing service may not ship immediately. Our seam sealing service can take 5 to 10 business days before the order ships during the peak season (April to early August). If you need your shelter faster we recommend ordering the appropriate sealant and seam sealing it yourself.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING For International Shipping we have the option of shipping through USPS Priority Mail International to some countries or DHL for others. We are currently only offering DHL shipping to some international countries due to an abnormally high amount of lost or stuck packages from USPS.

TAXES, FEES, AND DUTIES Six Moon Designs does not collect Taxes or Duties at the time of checkout. When the item arrives in your country, and is processed by customs, you will be charged additional fees according to local laws. Six Moon Designs does not set these fees, have any control over them, or receive any of the money. Contact your local customs office for more information.

*If a package is refused at customs it may not be returned to us, for this reason we cannot guarantee refunds for such items.

SHIPPING TO TRAIL TOWNS For remote and General Delivery locations, you should make sure to allow sufficient time for your package to arrive (4-6 business days). For General Delivery please choose USPS Priority Mail. For hotels, stores, etc. please contact the location first to find out which carriers deliver and then select that shipping service during checkout.

EXCLUDED COUNTRIESUK, China, and Japan. Six Moon Designs products are available in a number of retail locations spread around Japan and the UK. We no longer ship directly to individuals in UK, China, or Japan. Contact our distributor Outdoor Gear Maniacs (Japan) or Ultralight Outdoor Gear (UK) they will be glad to assist you in locating a local Six Moon Designs gear.

LOST PACKAGE Once your package has been received by the shipping companies; it is in the hands of the shipping carrier. Six Moon Designs takes no responsibility for packages lost in transit or stolen from your front porch. If the package is undeliverable, unable to forward and returned to Six Moon Designs (Returned to Sender) then the customer is responsible for shipping costs when sending back out to the correct or updated address.
