We want you to be happy with your purchase, and we want you to tell your friends about your positive experience.

1: Orders

Orders received before 12 pm EST during the workweek (Monday through Friday, not including holidays) will be processed the next business day. After that time, please allow two business days. We can make special accommodations if a customer needs expedited service; please contact us if this is the case. If there is a backorder we will notify you promptly and see if you would like a comparable product, wait for the backordered product, or cancel the order.

If we do not have all your items in stock we will check if you want a split shipment or wait until the entire order is ready for shipment. Therefore, in one order you may receive multiple shipments. Inventory can change dramatically from moment to moment, and while we have invested heavily in systems to streamline the supply chain, unfortunately, sometimes stuff happens that’s out of our control.

2: Shipping

Our preferred shippers are USPS and UPS (USPS exclusively for APO/FPO).

We accept forms of payment including IMPAC, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We also take bank checks and money orders; you’ll have to wait for funds to clear before we process the order.

We do not currently serve international customers through this webstore. If you are an interested international customer we can process your order manually, so we ask that you please contact us by email or phone. Note that packages shipped internationally will be claimed at full value for insurance purposes. Further we are not responsible for any additional duties or other fees levied after we ship. We ship internationally using UPS, FedEx and the US Postal Service.

3: Returns & Exchanges

We’re proud of our No Hassle Returns Policy: if you’re not completely satisfied with your order you have 30 days to return your merchandise for a refund or exchange. All items returned must be unused, in “new” condition, and still in their original wrapping. Items that have been damaged in packages that have been carelessly opened, with scissors, razor blades, box cutters, etc., will not be accepted for return.

Simply contact us at returns at m-i-r dot com to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number, with the following info:

Your order number and your name
Item(s) to be returned / exchanged
If exchange, what is the desired new item
Reason for return / exchange (this is just so we can improve our Customer Service not because we want to act like Big Brother)
Please make sure each returned / exchanged item is covered under an RMA. RMA numbers have a validity of 30 days from the date of issue, unless an exception is approved. Please put your RMA number on both the outside of the package as well as inside with the returning goods. We will advise you which address to post at the time of issuing the RMA.

Refunds will be granted to customers within 10 working days of our receipt and inspection of the goods.

Regarding paying for shipping for returns or exchanges – put simply if it’s our fault, we pay all shipping expenses. If you’re exchanging then we split shipping – you pay to send the original product back to us, and we pay to send the new product to you. If you’re returning the product, then you pay return shipping, unless we screwed up (in which case we pay shipping) or unless you provide a reason we think is compelling why we should share the cost.

4: Payments

When you order from us online, the system confirms valid funds on the card, and sets aside those funds. This is called an authorization. However we do not actually charge you until the product ships, except under certain circumstances.

First is if a product is backordered for more than 30 days, and you agree to wait, we will go ahead and charge you for the product. The reason is that the authorization is only valid for 30 days.

The second reason we would charge prior to shipping is upon customer request, usually for Military/Federal customers who have budgetary timelines.
