Shipping & returns
Your package shipment
Packages of in-stock items are generally dispatched the same or the next business day after receipt of payment and are shipped via UPS or Bpost. Orders should arrive within 1 to 5 bussiness days from the date of shipping, depending on the destination. Exceptions occur.
If you prefer delivery by a different carrier or by a different method (express, extra insurance...), an additional cost might be applicable, so please contact us before placing your order.
Orders placed on Friday, the weekends or on holidays may not be shipped until the next business day.
We take great care of packing your order, and while selecting good shippers, we have no control over the package once it leaves our warehouse. Do not accept the receipt of a damaged package.
We reuse boxes to package orders, this is not a damaged package.
Our website wil automatically calculate the shipping cost to your destination when you have entered an address as a guest or as a registered customer. The shipping fee depends on the weight, dimension and destination of the package. Small items might be shipped without tracking to provide a low shipping rate.
If you choose in store pick up, please wait for an email confirming your order is ready to pick up before coming to the shop.
Consider any shipping or transit time offered to you by Sucker Punch Skate Shop or other parties only as an estimate. We are not UPS, Fed-Ex or DPD and do not control how (fast) they work. The best thing we can do is get your order out asap so the shipper can do their job. We are not responsible for any delays caused by security checks, customs, absence at the delivery address, misinformation about the delivery address or any other situation that is beyond our or our carrier's control.
The delivery time is based upon business days and does not include weekends or holidays.
We encourage you to order in a timely fashion to avoid delays caused by shipping or product availability. If you need your order by a specific date, please indicate this on your order and we will do everything we can to get it there on time.
Our couriers do not call ahead of delivery and can not predict when they will deliver your order. Also, if a package is undeliverable either because the address is incorrect, there is nobody present to accept the order when delivered, an entrance code is necesarry and not provided or because the driver is unable to locate the address, the package will be returned to the nearest distribution center and held until further direction is given or shipped back to the Sucker Punch Skate Shop. Sucker Punch Skate Shop can not be held responsible in such instances!
It is your responsability to contact Sucker Punch Skate Shop when the delivery has not been made in a feasible time frame. When the package comes back to Sucker Punch Skate Shop due to any of the reasons above, Sucker Punch Skate Shop will not be responsible for the costs for re-shipping the order.
Sucker Punch Skate Shop takes no responsibility for any orders that are destroyed, damaged or stolen as a result of the mode of delivery. If a package arrives damaged, do not accept it from the shipping company. If you did, however, make pictures and send them to us as soon as possible. Most shipping companies consider the acceptance of a package as an 'okay' on your end. So if there is damage and you accept the delivery, they might relieve themselves of their responsibility.
Backorders/Out of stock items
Backorders (out of stock items) do occasionally happen. We try to communicate the availability on the product page, so you can make an informed decision and purchase. You will hear from us if anything from your order is unexpectedly out of stock (this excludes products that have the information of being preorders or backorders). We will let you know when the item is expected and whether there are any substitutions that we can recommend. You will always have the following options for backorders:
1. Cancel the backordered item from the order (unless it is a customized product or ordered in especially for you). We will refund you for the item, and ship the rest of the order.
2. Wait for the backordered item to come in stock, and have the complete order shipped then.
3. Have all in-stock items on the order ship immediately, and have the backordered item ship when it is back in stock. The customer is responsible for the shipping costs for multiple/additional shipments.
Group orders are a great way to save on shipping costs, and we definitely encourage you to shop this way!
We might give shipping discounts or free shipping for group orders, contact us about this.
But remember: the more items on an order, the higher the chances of a delay (backorders/out of stock items ...). You will need to balance the benefit of cheaper shipping against the possibility of a delay on the order. Contact us to receive up to date information about the in-stock items if you want to be 100% sure and can not find the information on the product page.
Having gear that fits properly is very important and we strive for you to skate comfortable and safe.
Please read the information on product pages, sizing info, our blog and FAQ thoroughly before making a decision. If gear doesn't fit correctly, we'll help you make it right.
Unfortunately, we do not offer online exchanges, but you always have the option of placing a new order to get the right item.
It is easy to return items you do not want to keep. Please read on about Returns.
Upside to this: you can receive the new items faster than we can process a return or exchange, so you can get rolling while we process your return.
Please contact us within 14 days of the receipt of the item for a return. Almost all items are returnable if you have not used them. All exchanges must be in unused, original condition with original undamaged packaging. When trying on gear, please do it at home (not at practice or outside), and preferably on a carpet - so there are no scratches on the knee caps etc.
We do not charge any restocking fees, but you can only return an unused item in its original condition with original undamaged packaging .

Do not mention the name of our shop. If we are charged duties and taxes, the package will be refused upon arrival, no exceptions.
Shipping, returns and exchange outside of Europe
We ship outside of Europe. Our website can not calculate the shipping cost to these destination, we have to do that manually, so feel free to email us with the item(s) you are looking for, your full name, shipping address and phone number and we will make a quote/estimate and a payment link (if you were wanting to pursue to an order). That way you know what's up before confirming your order.
Note that some countries charge the receiver customs fees and/or taxes. Sucker Punch Skate Shop is not responsible for any of those fees.
All our prices are in Euro. The total in your currency will be charged after the sales is complete and depends on the currency exchange rate of that day with your financial institution. We can only give you a rough estimate on what the currency exchange might look like.
You can alway return unworn and undamaged items. You are responsible for the shipping costs and insurance to get the product back to us (and to you) for any reason that is not our fault. When we have shipped you what you have ordered and is reflected on the invoice, it is not our fault.
When returning an item, email us with RETURN in the email subject name. Items returned to us without letting us know before shipping, can be returned to sender.
For further questions about intercontinental shipping (anywhere outside Europe & the UK), please get in touch.

Damaged or defective products and warranty
Please contact us about this as each manufacturer has a different proces for damages and warranties. Please add the following information to this message:
- Proof of purchase - this can be an order confirmation or invoice
- Photos of the damage. Both of the full product and of the damaged area. More photos are better.
These are necessary requirements to start the warranty process.
We might exchange or refund you (depending on the supplier and the specific situation), but we will need the damaged or defective item in most cases. Do NOT ship us any damaged or defective product without our okay and letting us know when you ship it.
Minor cosmetic flaws (like scuffed suede) are not considered defective, as they do not affect product performance or quality.
Warranty covers production issues and material defects. In no situation does warranty cover misuse, abuse, negligence, carelessness, accidents, washing (i.e. for protective gear), wear and tear through normal use, natural degradation of material or the failure to comply with product or care instructions.
We have a profound technical knowhow and very professional skills when it comes to mounting skates. We use different sort of tools in this handwork and even with the finest precision, this may result in minor scratches or marks.
