Shipping and Returns

Compliance with Export Regulations

Empire Rigging is 100% committed to compliance with the Unites States and all foreign government’s laws and regulations. Please be aware that there are certain restrictions (based on goods, locations and/or parties) that may delay or prevent shipping to certain countries due to trade regulations and restrictions.


If you are placing an order and will forward on to another party (entity or company), it is Empire Rigging’s policy that the end-user of the item (if other than you or your company) must be reported when you place your order. In compliance with the Export Administration Regulations, a shipment cannot be diverted to an entity or location that is prohibited by the US Government. There are multiple screenings that are required to be completed on each individual order and the end-user must be screened as well.

Your order will be packaged sufficiently to be shipped at no cost to you. If any special packaging is required above our standard packaging, you will be notified within a reasonable timeframe of any additional charges for these services.
