Shipping Policy

CIGAR STORAGE AND CONDITIONING

UNOPENED BOXES
As HitCigars we are always trying to ship Unopened Boxes of Cuban Cigars because opened boxes always becomes a problem for aficionados. By shipping cigars in unopened boxes, we aim to remove question marks in aficionados’s minds.
Generally Cuban Cigars are shipped in unopened boxes by Habanos S.A. to our Official Importer of Habanos SA.
In some cases Official Importer of Habanos S.A. might open boxes to check condition of cigars, applying stickers and warranty seals on the boxes. This is a really rare condition which may cause us to ship opened boxes.

NOTE:
If you want us to check your cigars before shipping, please write down a note in the comment box at the checkout page and upon your request, your box will be checked by our experts and shipped to your address.

***PLEASE NOTE THAT;
Shipping period begins on the day order is dispatched.
“Delivery to destination country” states for entry to destination COUNTRY not to the BUYER. Because we cannot have any information about delivery time for local postal service as well as customs procedures.
HitCigars cannot be responsible for long delays at customs. Please reach your customs office for delays caused by customs.
Delivery dates given does not state an exact delivery date. This period depends on destination local postal service workload, customs clearance delays, extreme weather situations, pandemic Covid-19, local postal errors and delayed deliveries.

You will not be able to see the real-time movements of your parcel as these shipments are carried out by national post services (Not like FedEx, DHL and UPS).
For shipments with status “In-Transit” we will be waiting for re-shipment until the status is updated. We cannot accept Refund and Re-Shipment requests for orders with status “In-Transit” before an update. Main reason for tracking status to remain at “In Transit” is, shipment is not being processed by the local customs office.

DELAYS IN DELIVERY
If you have not received your package in 30 days, we will ask you to wait another 10 days for additional delay.
After 40 days of no-show, we are now able to open an investigation (international inquiry) with the Postal Service to find out the status of the shipment.
Please note that no replacements will be shipped before international inquiry solved. In some cases orders can be delivered during investigation.
HitCigars cannot be held responsible for delays caused by human error (incorrect information e.g. address or buyer name, zip code).
If a package cannot be found, we will send a replacement package or refund.
You can find detailed information in RESHIP Section on Terms & Condition page.

Shipping to Australia, Brazil, and all South American countries is much slower due to unreliable local postal services. We ask for patience from customers ordering to these countries.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
As you may know due to Covid-19 pandemic ongoing worldwide, there is huge interest to online shopping compared to before. As a result, processing of orders at destination countries extended and this is resulting delays in deliveries.
We will be processing and dispatching orders on time but,

All delivery periods during Covid-19 pandemic are not subject to regular international delivery times we declared. All shipments are delivered with delays during this period. Tracking status is decided by the Postal Service in the destination country.
HitCigars are not quoting a delivery time during Covid-19 period.

Please note that all orders are under delivery guarantee of HitCigars and shipped by Official Dealer of Habanos S.A.
Kindly please wait for your order to be delivered during these unusual pandemic time.
