Shipping


All orders are packaged up with the proper and discreet packaging materials so orders arrive in perfect condition. Domestic orders usually ship out within 1-2 business days.

Please at least allow 2-3 full business days for international orders to be shipped out
 

Domestic Orders (United States)

Most domestic orders within the continental United States are shipped via United Parcel Service (UPS). The shipping time is 1-5 business days depending on your geographic distance from us and the method of shipment you choose (see below UPS Ground map for estimated delivery times). Please note that because orders are picked up at the end of the business day, the day that an order ships does not count as a "shipping day." All orders are shipped from Chicago, Illinois.

For orders shipping to P.O. Boxes, APO Addresses, and Alaska and Hawaii, we ship via United States Postal Service (USPS).

Special handling requests (e.g. leave package behind gate) can be made in the customer comments section during the checkout process.
 
Please note that the quoted UPS transit times are in business days, and that UPS does not deliver on weekends unless an expedited Saturday delivery is specifically pre-arranged. If you have placed your order on a Thursday or Friday and require a Saturday delivery (either by UPS 2nd day air or UPS next day air) please contact us after your order has been placed to arrange for a Saturday delivery (an additional expedited shipping fee will be applied)
 

Canadian Orders

Tobacco duties are due to the Canadian Government and there is very little we can do about it. Because duty rates fluctuate and vary from province to province, we advise that you contact your local customs office to get the most recent and up to date information regarding duties.

We are legally required to ship Canadian packages as commercial merchandise including a paper invoice listing the full retail value of the order. There are no exceptions. Any additional duties assessed on an order are the responsibility of the customer.

Our advice is to be prepared to pay any duties if necessary.
 
Note: "Refused" Canadian orders are subject to a 15% restocking fee.

During the checkout process you will be asked to select from the following shipping methods:
USPS Priority Mail International: this option usually takes 7-10 business days to arrive but may take longer due to processing at Customs. Tracking information will be provided to you once your order ships, and you can track you package at www.usps.com and www.canadapost.com once it has crossed the border.

International Orders (Outside of North America)

We ship internationally to Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The shipping costs are based on your location, the total weight of your order, and your desired shipping method.

Please note that the Customs office of your country may impose additional duties on your order. Any additional duties assessed on an order are the responsibility of the customer. We advise you to contact your local customs agency for duty information, and to be prepared to pay the duties if necessary.
 
Note: "Refused" international orders are subject to a 15% restocking fee.

Please also note that international shipping times are merely estimates and your package may arrive sooner or slower depending on the efficiency of your country's post office and time spent in customs. During the checkout process you will be asked to select from the following shipping methods:

You may return all unused items purchased at Hookah1.com within 30 days of the original delivery for a 100% refund (less shipping costs).  Items left out of the returned package will be deducted from the refund at full retail value. For domestic returns, we do not charge a restocking fee, however "refused" international orders are subject to a 15% restocking fee.  Please contact us to return an item and we will provide you with instructions in as expedient a manner as possible.  We will replace or exchange defective or broken items free of charge within the limitations of the 30 day time period and the unused condition of the returned items.  For returns/exchanges other than broken or defective items, the customer maintains responsibility for the return shipping amount.

Due to certain liabilities and legal regulations, any used items or opened items (i.e. opened boxes, packaging, or jars of shisha tobacco, opened coal packs, or any item where the seal has been broken) are not returnable. All returns must be returned with an approved RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) and are thoroughly inspected once we receive them before a credit is issued.

HOW TO RETURN/EXCHANGE AN ITEM:

All returns/exchanges require an approved RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number. RMA requests can be requested through email or you may call us and request an RMA by phone.

You will receive an email within 24-48 hours with detailed return instructions. Please contact us by email or by phone if you do not receive an RMA email within 1-2 days, or need a rush to be placed on any replacement parts.

For domestic returns (returns coming from the U.S.) please allow 2-3 weeks for a returned item to be credited back to your account. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (3 to 5 business days). In many cases, you will receive a refund much quicker. We'll notify you via e-mail once your refund has been processed. Feel free to contact us regarding the status of your return.
