OUR SHIPPING POLICY

We know that for our customers to have the best experience, they need to get their items quickly and cost-effectively. Our order processing and warehouse teams work together to process and ship your order as efficiently as possible. 

Orders placed after 1 p.m. EST will begin processing the following business day. We do not process or ship orders during the weekend. 

 During normal business, please allow 1–3 business days for processing. During sales, please allow 2–4 business days for processing. Shipping takes 1–6 business days for shipping depending on where you are located.

Please note: Refusal of any shipment will incur a 50% restocking fee.

ABOUT FREE GROUND SHIPPING

In order to provide the best experience, we provide free ground shipping within the contiguous United States for every order. We use FedEx Ground, UPS Ground, USPS First Class or USPS Priority for our free shipping. Due to the added cost of freight shipping, we are not able to offer free shipping to Alaska, Hawaii or other United States territories, although we do offer expedited shipping to these areas, as well as within the contiguous United States.

LOST OR STOLEN PACKAGES

If you believe your package has been lost or stolen, please check your tracking number for the most recent shipping status. If your order has been marked as delivered, please check with your neighbors to ensure they did not receive your package. Allow 24 hours after your shipping status is marked as delivered before reaching out to sayhello@EliteCooler.com. Packages are occasionally mismarked as delivered during shipping or marked as delivered before they actually are.

If your package does not show up in the next 24 hours and you believe that your package has been lost by the carrier, we will file a claim for the missing package. This process can take up to 7 days (not including redelivery time). We will require a signature upon delivery of the replacement, so please plan accordingly.

If your package does not show up in the next 24 hours and you believe your package has been stolen, we will require that you file a police report for the missing package. We will send out a replacement once we have received a copy of the police report. We will require a signature upon delivery of the replacement, so please plan accordingly.
