Each nuc or package is reviewed for the health of the queen, brood production, honey, and population. Due to many factors, out of the control of Mountain Sweet Honey Company, the honey bees are sold “as is”. In the event you pickup your bee package or honey order, you agree the quality of the bees or honey is acceptable, all sales are final once you leave the store premises, with no refunds allowed.
Weather can cause delays in shipments. When delays happen, we will contact you with your new pick-up date or shipping date. The customer understands delays can and will happen due to weather conditions. We will work diligently to reschedule your order when weather conditions require a delay.
All bee and queen shipment orders are F.O.B.. Your shipment is insured with the USPS or UPS and is included in the shipping cost . If there is a bee loss, in your shipment, it is the responsibility of the customer to file a claim immediately with the USPS or UPS. Please save your Postage confirmation and postage meter sticker to assist the Postmaster with filing a claim. USPS or UPS claims can also be filed online. The customer should take pictures of the loss, to help substantiate the claim with the USPS. Additionally, the USPS should scan the package as “damaged in shipment”. Should you have another third party delivery, the customer must seek reimbursement from that source of that delivery.
Bee shipments prior to two week of the ship date will not be changed.
By placing your order, online or by phone, you certify that the name and address is correct. Any errors typed in the order are the responsibility of the customer. Mountain Sweet Honey will not be liable for typos in the online ordering process. Any errors must be reported within 48 hours to ensure your bees reach their proper destination. Should you as a customer request a shipment change date, we will try to honor your request, if there is product availability. The change of shipping date or pick up date is at the discretion of Mountain Sweet Honey Company. In the event, a change request is approved and processed, on or after February 1, 2018, a $35.00 fee will be charged at the time of the change.
You will be emailed a shipping tracking number the day the shipment has been made. We recommend that you call your local Postmaster so they can call you upon the arrival of the bees. Failure to make this call, could delay the delivery of your bees. Because bees are bees, some USPS employees are frightened to get close to these packages and thus the bee packages are not scanned while enroute to your address.
The weight of each package is approx. 3 lbs. Mountain Sweet Honey Company strives to ensure each package is 3 lbs. but can be over weight or under weight due to many factors.
