Shipping & Returns Policy

RETURNS: For the Insane Labz Return Policy, check out our 111% Asylum Guarantee

Updated: April 19, 2022

USPS Service Update, Effective May 1, 2022 (from wsj.com): 

The U.S. Postal Service said Monday (April 18, 2022) that it would slow delivery times for nearly a third of all first-class packages as part of its effort to lower costs and reduce its reliance on air transportation.

The new service standards, scheduled to go into effect May 1, will add up to one or two days to some packages traveling long distances. Most package delivery times will be unaffected, and a small amount will arrive one day sooner.

CURRENT SHIPPING TIME: Orders are currently shipping within 3-5 business days.

A+ SHIPPING PROTECTION
A+ Shipping Protection guarantees the replacement of your product in the event of lost, stolen/misdelivered or damaged goods, when the requirements outlined below have been met.

A+ Shipping Protection is added to each order by default, but may be waived by the customer at checkout by deselecting the A+ Shipping Protection option. Please do not change the quantity of the A+ Shipping Protection in your cart to more than one (1), as we will not be able to automatically refund the additional items added.  However, you may reach out via chat on our site, or the Mad Chemist Helpline for a refund.

When coverage is waived by the customer, or when claims are not filed in accordance with the guidelines below, Insane Labz will not be liable for lost, damaged, or stolen items.

WHAT IS A+ SHIPPING PROTECTION?

A+ Shipping Protection is a third-party application, that allows our customers to buy shipping protection for all orders. A+ Shipping Proection ensures protection of customers' shipments in case of lost, stolen, or damaged goods.

Lost Orders 

  • An order is considered lost if tracking never confirms package status as "delivered"
  • If tracking shows no movment for five (5) business days (14 business days for APO and similar orders), it will be considered "lost" and will be eligible for replacement through the A+ Shipping Protection offered by Insane Labz. 
  • If there are known delays due to weather, pandemic or similar nationa/regional issues, the time above may be extended up to five (5) additional business days (regardless of domestic or APO/FPO, etc. delivery address).

Claims for loss must be filed no later than 10 business days after the expected delivery date for domestic deliveries and 20 business days after the expected delivery date for APO and similar shipments. File claims here.

Stolen or Misdelivered Orders

  • Please wait 3 business days from the day your package status was marked delivered to allow for the carrier to correct a potential misdelivery or incorrect status update to a shipment. 
  • When filing claims for stolen or misdelivered goods, customers may be required to file a police report when the value is over $150 or when mutilple claims have been filed by the same customer.
