Minor Compliance NOTICE: You must be of legal age or older in your location to purchase our products.
In an effort to combat credit card fraud and to prevent the purchases of our products by minors, HookahCompany.com reserves the right to request additional verification before an order is processed and shipped. We only ask for this information to verify the identity of the credit card holder and said information is not shared with outside parties.
What happens if I cannot be verified by the Age Verification process?
A small percentage of our cusotmers may not be verifiable due to limited availability of publicly available information contained within Age Verification databases. If this happens, we will attempt to contact you via phone and email to verify your age. To do this we typically require a copy of your driver's license or some other form of government issued ID that verifies your date of birth.

Domestic Orders (United States)
All domestic orders within the continental United States are shipped via United Parcel Service (UPS). The shipping time is 1-5 business days depending on your geographic distance from us and the method of shipment you choose (see below UPS Ground map for estimated delivery times). Please note that because orders are picked up at the end of the business day, the day that an order ships does not count as a "shipping day." All orders are shipped from Austin, Texas.
For orders shipping to P.O. Boxes, APO Addresses, and Alaska and Hawaii, we ship via United States Postal Service (USPS).
Special handling requests (e.g. "leave package behind gate") can be made in the "customer comments" section during the checkout process.
Please note that the quoted UPS transit times are in business days, and that UPS does not deliver on weekends unless an expedited Saturday delivery is specifically pre-arranged. If you have placed your order on a Thursday or Friday and require a Saturday delivery (either by UPS 2nd day air or UPS next day air) please contact us after your order has been placed to arrange for a Saturday delivery (an additional expedited shipping fee will be applied)
Canadian OrdersTobacco duties are due to the Canadian Government and there is very little we can do about it. Because duty rates fluctuate and vary from province to province, we advise that you contact your local customs office to get the most recent and up to date information regarding duties.
We are legally required to ship Canadian packages as commercial merchandise including a paper invoice listing the full retail value of the order. There are no exceptions. Any additional duties assessed on an order are the responsibility of the customer. Our advice is to be prepared to pay any duties if necessary.
Note: "Refused" Canadian orders are subject to a 15% restocking fee.
