Our Terms and Conditions Agreement
Website Design, Graphics, and all content © Copyright 2008-2012 Harbor Candle Company. At Harbor Candle Company, our customers are our priority. We strive to bring you the best online experience with the best selection of products. We invite you to contact us with any and all inquiries, requests, concerns, comments, or suggestions. To the best of our ability, we will gladly assist you.
All prices subject to change at any time without notice. Current purchases in no way guarantees future pricing will remain the same.
All orders must be pre-paid unless pre-approved by Harbor Candle Company management. As a method of payment, we accept the following:
Money Order/Cashier’s Check
*For payments using Business Checks, please allow up to 10 business days for your check to process and clear through our bank prior to the start of production of your order. There will be a $30.00 service charge on all returned checks. This fee is subject to change without notice.
If you wish to cancel your order, you MUST notify us PRIOR to the start of production. All orders cancelled prior to the start of production will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee, subject to change without notice. All cancellation requests submitted after production has begun, are at management’s discretion and are subject to a cancellation fee of up to 60%. If an item you have purchased is backordered, we will contact you for your instructions on how to fulfill your order. You may either:
1. Wait for your backordered item to become available prior to shipping the entire order.
2. Have the rest of your order ship separate from the backordered item(s) and have the backordered item ship separate when it becomes available.
3. Replace the backordered item with an item of equal value.
4. Cancel the backordered item from your order for a refund of the amount of the backordered item.
Harbor Candle Company ships nationwide to the United States via UPS or USPS, though we reserve the right to change shipping couriers at any time without notice. Because our products are custom-made products that are made to order, most orders are shipped within 5-10 business days with the average usually being seven (7) Business Days. With the exception of Wholesale and Fundraising orders which may take up to 2 weeks. Although we strive to ship our orders as quickly as we can to better serve our customers, this is subject to change without notice. Christmas season is our peak season, so ship times may be longer during the busy months leading up to Christmas. No orders ship without payment verification and receipt. We cannot ship orders to a Post Office Box (PO Box). Although our shopping cart may accept a PO Box as an address during checkout, our shipping courier will not allow it, so your order will be held in our retail Store or warehouse until an alternate shipping address can be determined. Harbor Candle Company is not responsible for delays resulting from our carrier’s service once your order has been transferred to their care. The risk of loss and title to items purchased from HarborCandleCompany.com pass to the purchaser upon delivery of said product to our shipping courier. If your order is not received within the time frame above, please contact us and we will provide tracking information for your order through UPS online.
If you live in the Massachusetts area and would like to pick your order up from our Manufacturing Facility and save the shipping charges, you may do so. Please contact us prior to placing your order so you can avoid the shipping charges at the end of the checkout. You may also phone, fax, or e-mail your order to us, and we will make it available for pick up at the location listed below.
The customer is responsible for the receipt of goods at the time of delivery. If the order is rejected or undeliverable by no fault of Harbor Candle Company or the shipping courier, the customer is responsible for all charges that may be incurred in the storage and delivery of their goods. All shipments that are returned to Harbor Candle Company due to refusal to accept or unable to deliver will be subject to a 25% restocking fee subject to change without notice. Orders with missing and/or inaccurate shipping address information that result in our shipping courier assessing us a fee to investigate and locate the delivery address are subject to an additional $15 fee. This fee is subject to change without notice and will be charged to the credit card used to pay for the original order. For orders paid with check, money order, or cashier’s check, Harbor Candle Company management reserves the right to either retrieve this fee through collections or allow the fee to remain as an open balance for assessment on the customer’s next purchase.
PLEASE TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION DURING THE HOT SUMMER MONTHS… If you live in a very warm climate, tarts, votives, and jar candles may melt in transit. We will NOT be responsible for melted tarts, votives, and jar candles.
Damaged, Defective, Missing, Wrong Products
Harbor Candle Company takes great care in packing your order to insure that your product arrives in excellent condition. In the unlikely event of damage during shipping, you will need to save the shipping box, packaging material and product. The shipper may require inspection. It is the responsibility of the purchaser/customer to inspect their shipment upon arrival. OPEN ALL YOUR PACKAGES IMMEDIATELY AFTER DELIVERY!

Any defective, damaged, leaking, missing or wrongly shipped product(s) must be brought to our attention within three (3) Business Days after receipt of delivery for a full refund or return authorization.

Every Harbor Candle Company product is made with only the highest quality ingredients, and we take special care in preparing each individual product sold. All our products have undergone thorough testing by both our staff and our customers. We are confident that you will be satisfied with our products. However, we highly recommend that prior to purchasing a fragrance you have never tried from us that you purchase a single item to sample it first. We STRONGLY discourage purchasing large quantities of a fragrance you haven’t previously purchased from us to prevent ordering a fragrance you are not 100% satisfied with.
If you have purchased a product that for some reason is not what you expected, please notify us within three (3) Business Days and we will make every attempt to replace and/or exchange it for another similar product. Harbor Candle Company’s management reserves the right to decline returns and/or exchanges at any time for any reason. No refunds will be allowed for products not meeting your expectations. Buyer is responsible for return shipping charges and any subsequent shipping charges associated with sending any requested replacement product(s) to you. If we have not heard from you after three (3) Business Days, we will assume you are satisfied with your product and will no longer accept returns and/or exchanges. Your item(s) must be returned in the original packaging (unless otherwise approved by Harbor Candle Company management), be free of damage and defect, and contain the return authorization number we provide. If you fail to adequately wrap and secure the products being returned, and they are damaged in transit, you will be responsible for any and all expenses related to their replacement and/or repair. Return packages received without a return authorization or not in the original packaging will be subject to a 25% restocking fee subject to change without notice. Please specify why the items are being returned and which item of equal or greater value you wish to replace it with.
If you return an item that has been utilized in any way, it will be shipped back to you and you will be charged for return shipping. You must CONTACT US for a return authorization number before returning your package. Harbor Candle Company management reserves the right to accept or decline any return/exchange request at any time for any reason. Harbor Candle Company may, at management’s discretion, assign a restocking fee of up to 25% on any return/exchange request. Return packages received without a return authorization will be subject to a 25% restocking fee. Prices are subject to change without notice.
