Route Package Protection is a cost effective way to ensure your order is protected. At checkout you are automatically opted in to Route. By opting out of shipping protection from Route, you acknowledge that Hand Held Legend is not liable for lost, damaged, or stolen shipments. Refunds will not be provided in this scenario.
Look over the Route Package Protection Timelines to file a claim on time and properly. It is up to the customer to file a claim during the time frames given. If a claim is not filed by the customer on time, we will only be able to honor up to a 50% refund or replacement package/item if there is an issue with the order.
If you do not have Route Shipping Insurance on your order and the package is lost, the customer will need to wait for our support team to attempt to locate the package with the shipping company or attempt to receive a credit. If a credit is given to us by the shipping company, we can only then process a refund or replacement package.
Duties, VAT, and other Taxes

Customers who do not wish to pay customs fees for any reason after your order has been shipped, cannot be refunded or replaced as the items may not be sent back. Shipping companies may dispose of packages in these scenarios.
By ordering you agree to accept any import or customs charges for your order.
Refusal of Package or Undeliverable Package
If a package is refused for delivery by the customer for any reason, including but not limited to refusal to pay customs fees, this package could potentially be disposed of by the shipping company and/or may not be returned to us for several reasons. In this scenario, you may be subject to a waiting period to determine if/when the package may be returned to us. If it is determined that the package will not be returned to our office, we will honor up to a 50% refund or replacement of the items in your order.
If a package has been deemed as 'Undeliverable' by the shipping company for any reason, including but not limited to, the customer entering in an address incorrectly/incomplete, inaccessible mailbox, missing correct name from shipment on mailbox, failure to pick-up package at post office after unsuccessful delivery, and more, this may also result in the package being disposed of by the shipping company. In this scenario, we will honor up to a 50% refund or replacement of items. If proof of a return-to-sender has begun, we may not see any further tracking updates on the package tracker. This means that we cannot provide an estimated return date. The customer must wait until the package has arrived back to us for re-shipment or refund.
