Shipping & return policy

Delivery Time

Each product page displays “ships within” information. This is the estimated time (actual time may vary) from the date the order is received until the product is dispatched from our warehouse located in Illinois. The time from dispatch to delivery is usually between 3–7 days. For time-sensitive deliveries please reach out to our customer team at info@hem.com

If you placed an order for products with different dispatch times the full order will be on hold until your entire order is available to be dispatched. Please note that during promotional campaigns, delivery times may be slightly longer due to high volume.
