Covid-19 FAQUpdated a year ago
During such uncertain times, we understand the importance of keeping our loyal customers informed as the situation develops and we will do our best to keep you up to date. In the meantime, we created COVID-19 FAQs to answer some similar but very valid questions that our customers were asking us.
CAN I PLACE AN ORDER?
Yes, HEMPER is still operating and shipping out orders. However, processing times are longer than usual due to our shipping carriers limitations, a sudden high influx of online orders, and the strict health protocols our warehouse employees must adhere to. We thank you in advance for your continued support and understanding during this national pandemic.
HAVE PROCESSING TIMES FOR STORE ORDERS CHANGED?
Yes, Shipping times depends on the shipping option you choose. We have First class (3-5 business days) or Priority mail (1-3 business days). Please note, shipping times are much different than fulfillment/processing times. Typically, it take us 3-7 business days to successfully pick the order from the warehouse, pack it, and have it shipped out to customers. On some occasions, the average fulfillment time could increase to 7-15 business days, and on very rare occasions, the average fulfillment time could increase to 15-20 business days. After the order has been successfully fulfilled, the package will then be waiting for pickup by USPS. After the package has left our warehouse and has been scanned into the USPS system, the shipping option of your choice will then take into effect.
As a result, we’re taking extra precautions to protect the health and safety of both you and our warehouse employees. That means online order shipments will take longer than usual due to the influx of orders being received and strict health protocols our limited warehouse staff must adhere to.
These are temporary measures that our company has decided to take to protect the health and wellness of our staff, customers and community. We will evaluate our operations on a week-by-week basis. We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause but we greatly appreciate your understanding
Thank you again for being so patient and understanding with us during these challenging times.
HAVE PROCESSING TIMES FOR SUBSCRIPTION ORDERS CHANGED?
As of right now, monthly subscription Hemper Boxes are currently still being processed and shipped out from our Las Vegas warehouse. Please note that monthly Hemper boxes get shipped in accordance with order date and usually, boxes typically get delivered within 10-15 business days from the order date. However, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, deliveries can take up to 10-20 business days. These are temporary measures that our company has decided to take to protect the health and wellness of our staff, customers and community.
WHY HAVE PROCESSING TIMES CHANGED?
As COVID-19 has spread, we have seen a significant increase in people shopping online due to the closure of local smoke shops. As a result, we’re taking extra precautions to protect the health and safety of both you and our warehouse employees. That means online order shipments will take longer than usual due to the influx of orders being received and strict health protocols our limited warehouse staff must adhere to. In addition, every product that is picked for an order is being sanitized prior to being wrapped and packed. Likewise, the warehouse packing areas and surfaces are being cleaned and sanitized several times throughout the day.
