SHIPPING POLICY

All orders placed on boteboard.com are processed within three business days of the date of order if the order is placed before 12:00 p.m. CT. Any orders placed after 12:00 pm CT will be processed beginning on the day after the order was placed. You will receive an email notification after submitting your order, and another email notification when your order has shipped. Actual transit and delivery timeframes will differ depending on shipping method and destination. BOTE® reserves the right to amend this policy at any time without notice.

Domestic Shipping

Shipping Methods. All BOTE® orders ship either via FedEx or freight carrier. The following BOTE® products are shipped via freight carrier: Rigid Paddle Boards, Rover Aero, Dock 10 and all motors. All other BOTE® products are shipped via FedEx.

Shipping Destinations. BOTE® currently ships online orders to the lower 48 states, and Aero products and accessories may be able to be shipped to Puerto Rico and Hawaii if you see this option within checkout. We are unable to ship to PO Boxes, and do not currently offer standard shipping to Alaska, Guam, US Virgin Islands, Military APO/FPO addresses, or international addresses.

Each freight shipment is individually quoted to minimize costs to our customers. In the event that freight charges to your delivery location exceed this subsidy, we may contact you to amend the delivery location, pay the difference or cancel the order.

Shipping Costs. BOTE® offers free FedEx SmartPost shipping on orders over $100 (excluding tax and shipping costs) within the lower 48 states. For orders shipping via FedEx that are less than $100, shipping charges will be calculated and displayed at checkout. For orders that are shipping via freight, there is a flat rate shipping charge of $99. Orders that have two or more items shipping via freight will have a flat rate shipping charge on the order of $149.

Expedited Shipping. For orders shipping via freight carrier, expedited shipping is not available. For more details surrounding freight shipping, please click here. For orders shipping via FedEx, expedited shipping options may be available. If expedited shipping is available for your order, the available options, along with applicable shipping charges, will be displayed at checkout.

International Shipping

We ship international orders to Australia through our BOTE Australia online storefront. We do not currently offer shipping to any other countries outside of the United States.

Freight Shipping

Scheduling Freight Deliveries. If your order is shipping via freight carrier, then the freight company will contact you to schedule delivery. Please double-check your shipping contact information to ensure that the email address and phone number are accurate. If the freight company is unable to reach you or you are unavailable to receive delivery, you may incur additional storage charges.

Receiving Freight Deliveries. An adult 18 years of age or older must be available to accept all freight deliveries, and you may be required to assist the driver with unloading from the truck. You must inspect the entire order before signing for the delivery. The delivery driver should wait for you to confirm the condition of the product before leaving the delivery location. Note that a damaged box does not always indicate damage to the product inside, and an undamaged box does not always guarantee that the product inside is undamaged. Once you have signed for your order, no party is able to file a claim with the carrier.

If you discover any damage to your product upon delivery and inspection, you should refuse the shipment by writing “Refused due to damage” on the bill of lading and provide this along with the product to the driver. Please fill out our damage shipping claim form as well to notify us. Proper documentation is required to receive compensation for damages or replacement product.

Shipping FAQs

How do I check the status of my order?

When your order has shipped, you will receive an email notification from us which will include a tracking number you can use to check its status. Please allow 48 hours for the tracking information to become available. If your tracking information has not updated within 48 hours of receiving your shipping confirmation email, please contact us for further assistance.

My product arrived damaged in transit, what should I do?

Freight Shipments. If your order was shipped via freight carrier, please inspect your entire order before you sign for the delivery. If you find any visible signs of damage on your product, please refuse the shipment with the driver, and mark “Refused due to damage in transit” on the bill of lading, and fill out our shipping damage form to notify us.

Once you have signed for your order, no party is able to file a claim with the carrier.

If you notice any damage to your product after you have accepted your order, please complete this shipping damage claim form within three days of the date of delivery. We address these situations on a case-by-case basis but will try our best to work towards a satisfactory solution!

FedEx Shipments. If your order was shipped via FedEx, please inspect your product upon arrival. Note that a damaged box does not always indicate damage to the product inside. If the product does appear to be damaged, please complete this shipping damage claim form within three days after the date of delivery. We address these on a case-by-case basis but will try our best to work towards a satisfactory solution!

Can I update my address or shipping method or cancel my order?

We aim to ship orders as quickly as possible, and therefore are usually unable to make any changes or cancel your order once placed. If you have already received a tracking number, we will be unable to change your order on our end. If you need to change your address, you can try working with the carrier directly to see if they are able to re-route your order. Additional fees may be incurred. You can return the items within 30 days, but you are responsible for the return shipping, and the items will be subject to a 20% restocking fee.

I am missing some items from my order, what should I do?

You may notice your order shows a delivered status, but you are still missing some items. If that is the case, please try the following:

  • First check inside your box. For example, if you ordered a KULA and some accessories, we may have packed your accessories within the KULA to ship everything at once.
  • Second, click further into your tracking number. Often when we ship multiple items with FedEx, there will be a master tracking number, with sub-tracking numbers within it. Our order confirmation email currently only shows the status of one of the tracking numbers, so your other items may still be in transit.
  • Third, you can try checking around your house/apartment as the carrier may have left your order in a safer location (alternate exterior door, garage, porch, etc.)

If you still believe you are missing items from your order, please contact us and we will look into it for you!
