Route Frequently Asked Questions
ATTENTION: Route Package Insurance is no longer offered on Giant Vapes. If you have an order in transit and purchased Route, you can still use their services to file a claim if your order is lost, damaged, or stolen.
Why did we remove Route? Simply put, it just doesn't fit the vaping industry at this time. Its services are mostly designed for shipping through the main carriers (USPS, UPS, etc...), but as federal regulation keeps us from using those carriers, the services that Route gives will never be as robust for us as you're used to with other online shops. This has caused a great amount of confusion and worry for other customers. To remedy this, we've partnered with Black Ship, a different package protection company that specializes in working with regional and last-mile carriers. You can see their info here! We highly encourage you to utilize their services to aid with any lost, damaged, or stolen packages.
