6Can I ship my items to you?
Absolutely! You pay both shipping to and from and ensure you follow all local/federal laws. Being an FFL allows me to receive any and all items as long as they are logged properly. For serialized parts and complete firearms, we are required to ship it back to the address that is listed on your government issued ID (i.e. driver's license, passport, military ID, etc.) that you provide. When shipping these types of items, please include a legible copy of your chosen form of identification. Basic guidelines for shipping firearms: *Handguns must be shipped 2nd day air by a contract carrier. Please do not use your local post office. We do not know the consequences of shipping it any other way, but we do know it is a law and why risk it? *Long guns and non-serialized parts can be shipped by ground service. USPS is the cheapest. *Please use either carrier pickup or take it directly to a service center, it will save you money and it is much more reliable than your local pack and ship center. *Please buy insurance for the full value of you items. Insurance is cheap, firearms are not and please note on your work order how much insurance you would like placed on your return shipment. *Declare that you are shipping an unloaded firearm for repairs. They should give you no trouble, it is perfectly legal. *MAKE SURE YOUR FIREARM IS UNLOADED!!! You would be surprised with what we have received. *Do not ship any ammo with your firearms. *Make sure your firearms and parts are packed well with sufficient cushioning for the journey. *Please include an itemized packing list of everything that you send us. We cannot be held responsible for anything that is not documented. *When ready to ship, please print and fill out our work order form and send your items to: Currahee Coatings LLC 3705 Carriage Manor Ct.

Cash, Venmo and credit card are accepted. Please note if you choose to pay by credit card our processor charges 3.5%.
10What is your warranty?
We stand behind our work 100%. We follow the specifications to the tee and if a part doesnt pass QC, we start over until it's done perfectly. If your firearm finish ever peels, cracks or chips as a result of our work we will refinish it at no cost to you including shipping. We do not cover excessive wear from normal use (IE- drops, metal to metal, holster marks etc).
11When do I pay?
If you are local- you pay when you pick it up and are pleased with the results. If you are shipping your item than you have to pay prior to me shipping it back to you.
12Why does the color look different in pictures vs in person?
This is probably the most frustrating part as an applicator. Colors show up differently on monitors/phones etc. When you choose a coating I would prefer you come to the shop and verify with the swatch set. This will 100% match what you are looking for regardless of how the photo comes out (since iphone/apple enhance it will look darker/lighter) than it really is. Rest assured- it is exactly the color chosen.
