Shipping Rates & Policies

New Shipping Rates!

The LIVS has introduced new flat shipping rates for all online purchases. These extremely competitive rates are designed to ensure that our customers get their products fast and easy, with minimal shipping costs and turn-around time.

A Note About Stock Levels:

While we are expanding our product offerings exponentially, we want you to understand that we're not a megastore. The LIVS simply can't stock everything! However, we can get you anything you want within a reasonable time frame. If your order can not be fufilled immediately, we will call you to discuss the expected delivery date, and provide you with options. Whether you decide to wait, choose an alternative, or even request a refund, the LIVS is dedicated to ensuring your satisfaction.
