1. Shipping Process

Sturtevant's Online Shipping

I just ordered! What happens now?
We try to process all in-stock orders within 24 hours. If you have a larger order, it may take up to 48 hours. For older items from previous seasons (these are typically located in our warehouse), it may take even longer. Please keep in mind, this does not include weekends or Holidays. If you are ordering an unstrung tennis racquet, our pros in the tennis shop will have it strung within 24 hours so you can get it on the court in no time.

In-Store Pick Up
If you live around the Puget Sound you are probably pretty close to Sturtevant's or one of our Sturtevant's Ski Mart Locations. Select In-Store Pick Up from the shipping options and it is always FREE! You will receive an email alerting you that your order is ready for pick up. Most in-store pick ups are ready within 24 hours depending on inventory.

Shipping of Oversized Items
All wakeboards and wakesurf boards fall under the oversized shipping category. This means that USPS (The Post Office) will not ship them. UPS will ship them but only with an oversize surcharge that is usually between $50 to $150. Please email us to get a quote before purchasing a wakeboard or wakesurf board.

99% of what we ship does not classify as being oversized. Even if we're shipping a pair of snow skis that are 185 centimeters long, they're usually skinny enough not to have an 'oversized' surcharge.

International Shipping
Due to contractual agreements with our suppliers, there may be restrictions on where we can ship some products. There are no restrictions on purchasing a product with an international credit card as long as it is being shipped to an address within the United States. If you do attempt to purchase a U.S. restricted brand, we may kindly cancel your order.

These brands include (but are not limited to)...

K2, Salomon, Burton, Spyder, Volkl, Tecnica, Marker USA, Giro, Oakley, Ride, Line, Full Tilt, Arc'Teryx, HO, Head, Under Armour, All Burton Lines, GNU, The North Face, Babolat, Bonfire, Dynastar, Look, Lange, Reef, Mammut, Ronix, Radar, Scott, Northwave, Contour HD, Lib Tech

Customs, tarrifs, duties, VAT's and taxes
Many international orders are subject to customs, tariffs, duties, and taxes. These fees are not included in our prices and are your sole responsibility. We are not responsible for any further fees issued by your respective countries or other entities.

Shipping Outside North America
We do ship certain products outside of North America upon request. For a shipping quote please email customerservice@sturtevants.com or call the Web Sales department at (888) 454-7669 (SNOW)

Warranty Policy

Please contact us during business hours for specific warranty information at 1-888-454-SNOW. We also encourage you to visit the manufacturer's websites for more specific information on a warranty. In many cases, this will help expedite the process and will allow the replacement products to be shipped directly to you, instead of to our store.
3. Warranty Information
Warranty Items

Manufacturers generally provide a warranty that covers your product against all defects for a limited amount of time. If you feel your product is covered under warranty, there are two things you can do.

1. Send Directly To Manufacturer
If the manufacturer does not require you to issue the warranty claim though an authorized dealer, then you may often send the product directly to the manufacturer. When available, it's usually the fastest way to get your gear back. It removes a substantial amount of shipping and processing time since it won't have to be shipped to the dealer first.

2. Shipping Through an Authorized Dealer
Many manufacturers require you to warranty items through an authorized dealer. This is especially common in skiing hardgoods. If this is the case, you must send it to us and we will contact the manufacturer on your behalf. This process is completely dependent upon the situation, condition of the product, and the warranty policy for that manufacturer. It is not uncommon for it to take 6-8 weeks to complete the transaction.
NOTE: You, the customer, will incur all shipping costs associated with warranty items. The exception to this is when warranty issues involve products that haven't been used.

How To Warranty an Item Through Sturtevant's
If you would like warranty an item through us please contact us to receive a Warranty/Return number. Once this number has been issued, you may send us the product and we will contact you with the status as soon as we have evaluated the situation.

More Questions? If you have any further questions, just ask! Contact us via phone during Bellevue store hours or email anytime at returns@sturtevants.com. We typically respond to all emails within 1 business day.

5. Our Performance Guarantee

The Sturtevant's Performance Guarantee - FOR IN STORE PURCHASES ONLY (Excluding Online Helmet Guarantee)

Your comfort and satisfaction are very important to us, therefore, we are happy to offer you the following guarantees when you purchase products from our retail store location.

We are confident that our experienced staff will help you select the right equipment for your needs. If, for some reason, the product does not meet your expectations, then we will give you 100% of your investment towards another product that we/you feel will better meet your needs. We do ask that you allow us the opportunity to work with you on these situations to find the best solution (we may recommend a demo ski before making another selection, or we may recommend additional boot fit aids). In any case, our goal is to make you a satisfied customer when you have entrusted our staff to help you make your product selection. If we are not able to satisfy your needs we may choose to offer you a refund.


Important Note: If you choose to purchase a product/model and/or size against our recommendation, you do not allow Sturtevant's the opportunity to adjust the fit, or you do not return within a reasonable amount of time (same season or at our sole discretion after the season) then we reserve the right to void the guarantee. In addition, equipment must be in reasonably good condition; excessive damage will void the guarantee.

Boots/Snowboard Boots:
Sturtevant's guarantees that the boots we help you select, based on your stated skiing/snowboarding style, ability, needs, wants and the actual shape and contour of your foot, will perform as stated and fit as designed.

A properly fit ski/snowboard boot can still cause minor problems and discomfort when first used as there is no way to replicate the on-hill environment in the store. Therefore, it may be necessary for you to return to the store for additional fit adjustments. If, following 2-3 fit sessions, we are unable to fit the boots to our mutual satisfaction, we will offer you a credit under our guarantee.

Sturtevant's guarantees that the skis/snowboard we help you select, based on your stated skiing/snowboarding style, ability, needs, wants and equipment history will perform as stated.

Should you not enjoy your new skis/snowboard, we ask that you try them out at least two (2) days on the mountain, but no more than five (5), to give them a fair chance. In some cases we may recommend having our shop retune the skis/snowboard to better match your needs and style. If at that time you are still not satisfied with the performance of the skis/snowboard, we will offer you a credit under our guarantee.

Water ski/Wakeboard:
Sturtevant's guarantees that the water ski/wakeboard we help you select, based on your stated style, ability, needs, wants and equipment history will perform as stated.

Should you not enjoy your new water ski/wakeboard we ask that you try the product at least two (2) times to give it a fair chance. If at that time you are still not satisfied with the performance of the water ski/wakeboard, we will offer you a credit under our guarantee.

Online Helmet Fit Guarantee

Purchase any winter season helmet from Sturtevant's Online and if it doesn't fit we will pay your return shipping. Follow our helmet fit and sizing suggestions then order up worry free! Offer good once per customer per season.
