Shipping Conditions

FedEx tracking number isn’t working, what may be the issue?

It is likely that FedEx may have separated one of your items from the package, or they may haven’t shipped all items of your order. In such a case, you may be requested to wait a little longer for your ordered items to be delivered. However, if unfortunately, you do not receive your package, you may reach out to our customer care or our shipping department for an update on your package. In case you receive your package that is damaged, you may directly contact your carrier service.

What shall I do if I am unable to receive my order during the UPS / FedEx chosen time?

We suggest you to check the Info Notice you have received from UPS / FedEx to learn if they allow a delivery re-attempt.

You can also leave a message for the driver on Info Notice to instruct him how he should deliver the package; leave it at your doorstep or deliver it to a new location.

We suggest you visit UPS / FedEx’ website and enter your Info Notice number on the website, you will then be able to change the delivery time or return your order to the shipper.

Is it possible for me to pick up my own order?

Optimum Drives offers you the convenience to pick up your package. To do so, simple select the “I want to use my shipper” shipment method in your shopping cart, the type “will call” in all blank details before clicking update. After you do this, continue the checkout process as you normally would and wait for us to call you. We will call whenever your order is ready to be picked up. Please be assured we will call you after your order has been processed, therefore, we request you do not visit the office unless notified to.

Do we ship internationally?

Will Optimum Drives pay for the shipping cost of returned item that is defective or damaged upon arrival?

It is with regret to say that we will not be paying shipping cost of returned items that are defective, however, we can accommodate you with mutually agreed negotiations. We will gladly replace and ship a new item to you for free if you agree to pay for the return charges of the defective item.
