Adirondack Guitar has partnered with Route to provide package protection and tracking to all our customers free of charge. Traditionally, we would insure shipments through the Carrier (FedEx, USPS or DHL) but we often found ourselves waiting weeks to get answers only to make any shipping issue a miserable experience for both you and us.
With Route, we now have a partner with automated claims processing for a majority of cases and fast handling of anything that falls outside of instant decisions. We feel this will provide you a faster, easier experience in replacing or refunding any issues that may occur. Below is some additional information to help you answer any questions you may have.
Route Protect is premium package protection for your online orders. When you add Route Protect at checkout, you can easily file issues for lost, stolen, or damaged packages in the unfortunate case that they arise.
Refunds: When refunding an item, Route covers the subtotal of the order. Shipping costs, taxes, and the Route premium are not included.
Reorders: Route will reorder the items, but please note that items can only be replaced depending on in-stock availability. All reorders have Route Shipping Protection added, for free!
