Shipping, Returns & Payments
Your order will almost always ship within one business day from the moment you submitted it. If you submitted your order by 3:30pm PST, it will almost always ship on the same day.
Shipment tracking information will be emailed to you as soon as a shipping label is created. Packages are first scanned by shipping companies when they perform their daily pick-ups from our Distribution Center around 3:30-4:00pm PST. Tracking information will start appearing once your package has been scanned.
For FREE shipping options, we reserve the right to ship via whichever shipping method/shipping company makes the most sense, but we try to accomodate whichever shipping company you request.
- Most free shipments within Nevada and Southern California ship via FedEx Ground. Under normal circumstances, these shipments will arrive on the next business day.
- Most free shipments to the rest of the west coast ship via a regional shipper named OnTrac. Under normal circumstances, most shipments within California and Arizona will arrive on the next business day. Shipments to the rest of the West coast normally arrive in 2 days via this shipping method.
- Most shipments to the rest of the country ship via FedEx 2-Day or USPS Priority Mail and will arrive in 2 business days. We have noticed that shipments north of New York may take 3 days.
- Size constraints on larger orders may force us to use services like FedEx Ground to send your shipment.
Please be aware that weather can delay your packages, even when you are not experiencing weather problems in your specific geographical location. Also, please plan ahead for delays during various holidays.
DURING NON-COVID TIMES: When shipping via methods with 'guaranteed' shipping times such as via FedEx Priority Overnight, these shipping methods can also be affected by weather. If your package arrives late, please notify us so we can request a refund from the shipping company. Please be aware that usually acts of God such as bad weather are not refundable, but situations such as mechanical failure are refundable. If we receive a refund, you will receive a refund. If shipping companies do not refund our shipping fees, we will not be able to refund those fees to you.
DURING COVID TIMES: It appears that all major shipping companies are no longer truly guaranteeing any of their shipping duration commitments. If we cannot receive refunds from our shipping companies, we regret to have to say that we cannot refund our customers for those delays.

As a general rule, we require all packages with a value over $500.00 to be sent Signature Required. If you absolutely need your package to be left at your location without requiring a signature, please complete the Authorization to Waive Delivery Signature form. All packages with a value over $2000.00 will need to be shipped Signature Required every time with no exceptions, even if an authorization form is on file.
If you are not able to be present at the time of delivery, please write a note with a message similar to the following for your delivery driver:
"[shipping company] Delivery Driver:
Regarding my package with tracking #[tracking number(s)], please leave the package at [safe location].
Note that many shipping companies are starting to provide advanced services to address some of these issues. They will send you delivery alerts via SMS text message, allow you to sign for packages online, reroute packages to another address, request vacation holds, or scheduled your home deliveries.
Please note that we have implemented FedEx's Hold At Location feature where you can now have your package delivered to a store in your area. This new, free service has the following benefits: some deliveries may be cheaper for you (no home delivery fees), deliveries are made earlier in the day (home deliveries are usually made at the end of the day), and your packages are all signed for you upon arrival. Please look for this feature on our Checkout page.
Risk of Loss
All items purchased from American Key Supply or ICCores.com are made pursuant to a standard shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. If a package seems to have been lost during shipping, please contact the shipping company yourself and try to have the package located. In most cases, if you contact your shipping company directly and immediately, your package will be found. Relying on us to contact the shipping company only causes further delays.
Returns & Exchanges
Returns and exchanges can be made at our will-call or by mail. Please call first us if you wish to return or cancel an order placed online.
Like many retailers, we guarantee our products; if an item hasn't met your expectations, you can send it back. Unlike most retailers, we also guarantee the product selection advice offered through our Web site, advertisements, and staff; if an item you've purchased based on this advice turns out to be unsuitable, you can send it back. In either case, simply return the item for exchange, refund, repair, or credit.
Items may be subject to a 15% restocking fee.
When exchanging items, you'll need to return the original item within 30 days to avoid being charged for both the original and exchange items.
If you have any questions about our guarantee, please Email Us or call us at 1-800-692-1898.
Returning by Mail
Returned items must be sent via insured, prepaid shipping. Make sure your shipping method has some sort of tracking of your package. Make sure you include information about who you are, your order number, and details of the return/exchange in the package. Please note: we cannot accept CODs.
If you are requesting an exchange, please remember to include sufficient payment for the return postage.
Refunds will be processed within 3 business days. In most cases, we will need to refund via the same payment method. When a credit card was used, refunds must be made back to the same credit card account. Please note it may take 3-5 business days for it to display on your credit card statement.
As of 10/08/2020, all BlueRocket products and OEM refurbished remotes include a "2-year, no questions asked guarantee". The guarantee is related to the quality and reliability of the products. Simply put, if you are unhappy with the product for any reason, you may return it for a refund and we will make that process as easy as possible for you. To assist us with constantly improving our products, we usually DO need the product back from you and we DO need to know what happened.
If the purchase was made within the last 30 days, we will issue a refund to your original form of payment. If you are outside of 30 days (but within 2 years), we will gladly exchange the product or issue a store credit.
This guarantee does not mean we will give full refunds when a customer orders the wrong product for a specific application. Also, this guarantee does not mean we will give full refunds when a customer returns old product that was never actually used. These examples are things that happen from time to time even to the best of locksmiths though, and we will try our best to accommodate these kinds of returns, subtracting only reasonable costs incurred during the process.
The return of a check (electronic or paper) issued to American Key Supply will result in a $30.00 returned check fee being placed on the customer account, no matter the reason. We reserve the right to stop accepting checks as a form of payment from any customer at any time. This includes returned electronic payments. The account holder will be notified via email and/or telephone on how to complete payment. A hold will be placed on the account affected until the full payment has been made.
