Shipping information, returns and your other questions
Pet peeve...We hate doing business with companies that won't talk to us.
Why can't they make themselves available? Are the managers all on vacation in Tahiti? Do they only speak Chinese? Grrrr..
We are a real company staffed with real people many of whom happen to be family. If you want to speak to a person at Gone Country please call. We want to talk to you.
We are based in Orlando, Florida. We speak English and Spanish (9 am to 5 pm EST) and we do our best to answer our phones 7 days a week (sorry, that's not the same as twenty-four hours a day).407.504.2800 We answer the phone 9 am to 7 pm EST.
What are your shipping and return policies?
We ship to the address you put on your order unless USPS or UPS shipping systems find that the address is incomplete or in error. If the shipping system gives us a warning that there is any kind of error with the address we will make multiple attempts to contact you. Sometimes the system will not allow a label to be printed. Sometimes it will issue a label even if the address is not confirmed. If you do not respond and we are able to print a label, we will ship even if the address is unconfirmed. HOWEVER, the package may be delayed and if the package comes back you will be responsible for the shipping charges. We will not refund shipping charges and we will not re-ship the package without fixing the errors; and if we do re-ship we will charge you for the shipping again. So please make sure your address is correct.
SHIPPING TO CANADA AND EUROPE
We ship by FedEx to Canada and Europe. Your payment to Gone Country Hats will be for product and transit charges. Free shipping does not apply to any area except the continental US. You will pay duties and taxes due at the time of delivery.
WARRANTY - WE WILL REPAIR OR REPLACE IT. FOR LIFE.
We warranty against any manufacturing defects. If the manufacturing quality of the hat you have chosen doesn't live up to your expectations, please call. We're happy to talk with you 7 days a week.
- Since we design and produce our own cowboy hats, our quality control is excellent; but if any part of the hat is not well made, we will repair or replace it at our discretion. For Life. We'll ask you to send us pictures of the hat (and maybe the packaging) so we can see the defect or damage. If you can see us at an event, we will fix any damage on the spot.
- If the issue is so small you can repair it with hot glue (like a hatband that has come un-glued) we'll teach you how to fix it yourself so that you don't have to send it back to us. For larger repairs, or after you have the hat for 30 days we might ask you to send it back if it needs repair. Shipping charges will apply. We want you to be happy with your hat.
- We love dogs and beer as much as you do, but when either come into play, sometimes s**t happens to hats. If your hat gets damaged in a way that is not related to our manufacturing process we will still do what we can to repair or help you fix your damaged hat. Again, we will probably ask you to send the hat to us and shipping charges will apply.
- Call us at 407.504.2800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need to exchange a size or return an item for any reason, call for a return authorization. You can return your unworn hat within 30 days for exchange or refund, but you pay the return shipping. After 30 days there is a 10% re-stocking fee. Your refund will be for the amount you paid for the product and will not include any ship charges you might have paid or that we paid on your behalf. Your product needs to be in new condition with all the tags attached. Put the hat back on the supporting cone please. You'll need to use our box or a similar sturdy box that doesn't flatten or deform the hat. If you got shipping included in the price and you return a product, we will deduct the shipping that we paid on your behalf from your refund. If you used a discount code, your refund will be for the amount you actually paid for the product less any shipping or other charges we incurred on your behalf. Shipping protection is not refundable.
If you order a product marked IMPERFECT, those are final sales and not returnable.
If we do issue a refund, we will use the same payment method as your original purchase and we will do it within 7 days of receiving your returned item and verifying its condition..

We ship by FedEx and USPS primarily and will send you an email with a tracking number when your hat ships. There's a live link on this email so you will be able to track it along the way. Transit times are affected by Covid 19, holidays, and other factors beyond our control. We cannot control the transit time once it leaves our warehouse.

Do you have a printed catalog?
No, but you can search and view our products here on our website, as well as fairs and festivals where we are set up to sell.
