Personal Check/Money Order: Select "Send In Check/Money Order" at checkout time, print the order form and send it with your payment to:
Pet Classics, LLC
501 Lexington St #41
Waltham, MA 02452
We will begin processing your order immediately, but items will not be shipped until payment is received. To allow for clearing, personal checks will be cashed up to 5 business days prior to shipping with a $25 fee for returned checks (non-sufficient funds).
Call Us: If you would prefer to transact a credit card purchase by phone, you may call us (603-668-7387). If you call and we are away from the phone or not in the office, please leave your phone number and a convenient time for us to return your call. We'll get back to you as soon as possible! Please DO NOT leave credit card information in your message.
Fax: For your protection, we do not accept orders by fax due to the sensitivity of credit card data and the non-secure nature of fax transmissions.
Credit Card Authorization Holds:
- An authorization hold will be placed on your credit or debit card each time an order is placed to confirm there are funds available to complete the purchase. (Cancelled order authorizations may take 3-5 days to be released; the length of the hold is determined by the bank or other financial institution that issued your card.) You will not be charged for cancelled orders. For additional questions, please contact your financial institution or card provider
If you used a credit card for an order that was:
- Attempted but not completed
- Is still processing
and a charge from Pet Classics appears on your method of payment, it is because your financial institution placed a temporary authorization on your account to ensure funds will be available if the order goes through. This pending charge is an initial hold that temporarily lowers your available balance. Your account is not actually billed until the order ships, so if the order is cancelled and does not ship, the hold will automatically expire in accordance to the time frame set by your financial institution and no action is required on your part.
To get your order to you as soon as possible, we start processing your order as soon as you finalize your order. It is often possible to cancel your order during processing, but once it has been shipped, it cannot be canceled.
If Your Order Has Shipped:
If it is too late to cancel your order, you may return any unwanted items in accordance with our returns policy.
Many items ship within 1 to 2 days. However, other products may take longer to ship due to assembly, finishing and/or customization processes. (For exceptions not listed below, we will provide shipping information on the individual item pages.)
- Hardwood Ramps and Steps: 1-2 weeks
- Carpeted Steps: 2 to 5 business days
- Cedar Steps: 1-2 weeks
- Hardwood Crates: 3-4 weeks
- Water Ramps/Steps: 1-2 days (unless stated otherwise on product page)
Please allow 1 to 6 business days for ground delivery depending on the delivery address and shipment origination.
When flat rate shipping is not feasible, we use actual rates for determining shipping charges. Hence, the rates displayed are not padded or altered - they are actual rates based on carton size, origination and destination points. (As a rule, we choose not to manipulate product prices in order to hide the actual ground carrier rates or to offset claims of 'Free Shipping'.)
All of the items we sell are warrantied for manufacturer defects (by each respective manufacturer).
We are committed to providing 100% customer satisfaction. However, if you would like to return an item, we ask that you contact us first for specific return instructions. Please use the contact form seen throughout the site or call us at 603-668-7387 for assistance and information on how and where to return your item.
For your convenience, our standard return guidelines are outlined below. In the few cases where additional warranty guidelines apply, those details will be clearly outlined on the item page.
PLEASE NOTE: After an item has been shipped, customer bears responsibility for all return shipping costs.
Unopened Merchandise: Unopened merchandise may be returned within 30 days of the delivery date. Upon receipt of your return merchandise, a refund will be issued to the credit card account used for the purchase, or mailed to you if paid by check.

Opened Merchandise: We will be happy to accept your return only in like-new condition, within 30 days of the delivery date.

Note: Special and/or Custom Orders and Returns without pre-authorization may be subject to 15% restocking fee.
The Pet Classics Commitment
Like you, we enjoy the convenience of shopping online and recognize that privacy and security is of utmost importance. At PetClassics.com, we take your privacy/security concerns very seriously and are committed to protecting your personal information.
We have taken strict measures to ensure that your personal information is secure at all times. Except for the purposes indicated below, we will NOT disclose, sell, share or rent any of your personal information ( i.e. name, address, credit card number, or transaction history) to any third party.
We do not send any spam/mass marketing emails. As a rule, all email communications are initiated by customers or related to a sale (receipt, shipping notice, etc).
What Personal Information Does PetClassics.com Collect?
Transaction Information: As with any shopping site, it is necessary for us to obtain transaction information from you in order to complete your purchase. This includes your name, billing/delivery address(es), telephone number and credit card data. This information is only shared with third-parties, as necessary, to facilitate the sales transaction (i.e. credit card authorization company).
Credit card purchases are authorized (by the card issuing bank) online and in real-time at the time of checkout. This makes it unnecessary to store any customer credit card numbers in their entirety. Subsequent to the approval process, only the last four digits of your account are stored with the transaction information (in an encrypted format) to protect and safeguard your most sensitive information.
Site Usage Information: PetClassics.com servers collect aggregate information, such as IP addresses, browser versions, operating systems and pages accessed during your visit to PetClassics.com. This information is used to view site usage patterns and is not tied in any way with any personal data that you provide to Pet Classics.
Sharing of Personal Information
When you purchase products from PetClassics.com, the personal information you provide will only be shared with the appropriate third parties necessary to complete your purchases (e.g. credit card authorization company). The information shared will be ONLY that which is required to successfully execute and confirm your transaction.
However, if you violate any law, rule or regulation, we may be required to disclose your personal information in order to apply or enforce PetClassics.com legal remedies. (This measure is applied primarily in the event of consumer or credit card fraud)
Personal Information Security
Pet Classics is dedicated to providing a safe and secure online shopping environment. We use state-of-the-art, industry standard, secure socket layer (SSL) technology which is utilized by most popular browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Explorer. This technology encrypts (converts into code) your personal information before it is transferred across the Internet from your computer to our secure shopping server. This ensures that your personal information is protected at all times. Even storage of the information is in encrypted format to further safeguard your most sensitive information.
