  • Physically large orders may require special shipping arrangements, resulting in additional costs, and must be pre-arranged over the phone by calling 903-453-0802 (international customers click here). Failure to follow this protocol will result in a delay of shipment as VEX will need to notify the customer of any additional costs.

    **Excludes certain types of orders as determined at the sole discretion of VEX Robotics.
  • VEX Robotics typically ships products via FedEx. Please contact our customer support team at sales@vex.com or 903-453-0802 for shipping costs, and for costs related to special arrangements (international customers click here.) Once the shipping costs are provided by VEX Robotics, please add the costs for shipping and for special arrangements to your PO. Common special arrangements may include, but are not limited to:
    • Freight, liftgate, inside delivery, or custom palletized options
    • FedEx Smart Post for APO customers
    • Shipping under your own FedEx, UPS, or DHL account. Please note that you can ship under your own shipping account number by selecting that shipping option during the online checkout process. Certain exclusions apply.
    • In-person pickup at certain VEX distribution centers as arranged in advance by you and VEX Robotics.

  • Claims for shipping shortages, errors, or defective products in the U.S. must be in writing and received by VEX Robotics at support@vex.com within ten (10) days after receipt of shipment by buyer. Failure to make such claim within the stated period shall constitute an irrevocable acceptance of the goods and an admission that they fully comply with all the terms and conditions of the buyer’s order.

  • We do not offer partial shipping for orders containing backordered items. If you require in-stock items urgently, we recommend placing one order for the in-stock items and another order for the backordered items. If you have already placed an initial order, please cancel the backordered items from your initial order and place a new order for them. Note that placing a new order for the backordered items does not cancel backorder items off of the initial order, so please be sure to make that cancellation to prevent duplicate shipments.***
    ***To cancel items off your initial order: In the US, call us at 903-453-0802 or email us at sales@vex.com.
    In other regions see contact information here.

  • Invalid or Erroneous Shipping Addresses
    • We are not liable for missing or damaged packages or delays in transit caused by an invalid or erroneous shipping address.
