Thank you for visiting www.rmat.com - At Robin Materials, we work hard to provide our customers with the best possible customer service. See the FAQ's below for answers to commonly asked questions. If you don't find an answer here, please let us know!
Is your web site secure?
Shopping with your credit card with Robin Materials is guaranteed to be safe and secure.
We take extensive steps to process our Internet transactions securely and safely. Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard for securing credit card transactions over the Internet.
This software encrypts all your personal information into an unrecognizable code that is securely transmitted from you to us. When this encrypted information reaches our secure server, we translate it back to its original form and store it safely offline and inaccessible through the Internet.
To continue our commitment to your security, every credit card processed is run through an address verification process to verify that the card is registered to the billing address on the order.
We are dedicated to providing you with a secure, worry-free shopping experience.
Can I order over the phone?
Robin Materials continues to do most business over the phone. This site is designed for the customer's convenience. Please call with any questions: 800.433.1433.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express as forms of payment. It is our policy to not charge your card until we confirm that your order has shipped. We may, however, obtain an authorization on your card at the time of your order for the full amount of your order. Please note that this may appear temporarily as a charge on your account statement, but it is an authorization only and usually will go away after 24-48 hours.
Re-authorizations after the initial order
We also obtain authorizations for the outstanding balance of your order if a) your order partially ships or b) the existing authorization is about to expire. Should the re-authorization not be successful, we will contact you for new payment information. If we are not able to obtain a valid authorization, we reserve the right to either cancel your order or charge your card for the outstanding balance of your order. If, after we charge your card as a result of not being able to re-authorize, you wish to cancel your order, please contact us and we will refund your card provided that your order has not yet been cut or shipped.
Online Order Status (Tracking info and more)
When you place an order with us, you will receive a link that will allow you to track that order. Once your order ships you will receive another email with tracking information (if available).
Confirmation of orders
After placing an order you will get a confirmation email shortly. If you place an order with us and don't get an confirmation email check your "junk" mail folder - it will probably be in there; otherwise, contact us and we will remedy the situation.
You will only be charged tax if you are a resident of California, and have not indicated that your purchase is for resale. No sales tax will be applied to orders shipped to addresses in other states.

UPS only guarantees and accepts claims for fast shipments, (not ground). UPS does not guarantee all air shipments during the Christmas holiday. Please see their website for all details.

Method of delivery
The majority of items are shipped via UPS, but for
larger items we might use specialized freight carriers.
