Insurance and Returns:
Under the terms of law, a common carrier is liable to a recipient for the all damages and losses occurred during the transportation. Liquor Barn and its Principals cannot be responsible for any common carrier's misconduct, nondelivery, loss, etc. It is highly recommended to insure your shipment. The very affordable Route insurance is available at checkout point. Orders are always packed only in certified and approved by carriers package to prevent breakage.
If you added protection at checkout, then your order is covered. Liquor Barn is proud to partner with Route, the leader in package protection and tracking solutions. By selecting Route+ at checkout your order will be protected from damage, loss*, or theft. In the unfortunate case that your order never comes or is broken upon arrival, you can easily file a claim with Route and receive a replacement or be fully reimbursed. We are excited to offer this service to you and we highly recommend you use Route+ package protection at checkout.
*Claims for packages marked "delivered" yet not received and where there is no evidence of “porch piracy” must be made 5 days after “delivery date” but no longer than 15 days to ensure it was not misdelivered or easily found around the premises." Claims for packages presumed to be lost (where the status is not "delivered") must be filed after 7 days (20 days for international) and within 30 days from the last checkpoint. Please notice: Route Protection is for shipped product only. It doesn't cover shipping cost, local deliveries and pick up. The insurance option is enabled by default. You must disable this option before you checkout and make sure that is turned off. There is no procedure to refund insurance. Insurance coverage will be denied if claim is made outside of the established by insurer time frame.
Please always closely inspect the package upon delivery before you accept it. The clear evidence of any damage occurred before delivery, but not after delivery takes place will be required. Please notify delivery person of any damage and require him/her to document evidence of damage. To the extent permitted by law, unfortunately we are unable to provide a refund or exchange in respect of any Product ordered without clear evidence that the product was damaged during the transit. You agree to take all the risks if your package is damaged, not delivered, stolen, etc., if you decline to insure your order.

Nothing contained in Illinois laws that prevents the possession and transportation of alcoholic liquor by the possessor for the personal use of the possessor, his family and guests. In many States an individual who is not a minor may transport into or out of the state a reasonable amount of alcoholic beverages for the exclusive purpose of the individual's private use or consumption, and nothing limits or applies to such private actions. It is sole responsibility of Consumers to check within their local regulation or ordinance that it does not prohibit such transportation including by consumer, courier, express company, private, contract or common carrier.
BUYER, HIS AGENT OR BROKER ACTING AS AN AGENT MAY ARRANGE CARRIER OR DELIVERY SERVICE OF THEIR CHOICE. BUYER OR HIS AGENT WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL LABELING, PICK UP OF THE ORDER FROM LICENSED PREMISES AND SHIPMENT OR TRANSPORTATION OF ALCOHOL.
