  • Q - What is ‘Pending transaction’?

    A - When placing an order with a debit/credit card, a request is sent to the bank to ensure the account has sufficient funds available. The bank then places a temporary hold on the funds whilst the transaction is authorised and security checks are performed, allowing the merchant to collect those funds at a later date at the point of dispatch. If for any reason the pending transaction fails these checks, Route One will decline the transaction, and the bank will release these funds. These holds have an expiration date of 3-5 business days, depending on the banks policy.  

  • Q - Why is my order not going through?

    A - Our system is character sensitive and an order will decline if there are any letters or symbols in the incorrect boxes for your address details. E.g. A ‘+’ symbol cannot be added in front of your phone number, and if you are leaving a line blank please do not fill it with symbols such as / or --.
    A - Please ensure that your billing address matches the address that your card is registered to. You can change the delivery address at the checkout.

  • Q - Why is my order in status ‘Held or Suspected Fraud?’

    A - Held - If there is a problem with your order or we need to contact you regarding your order then you may see the status ‘Hold’. We will have e-mailed or tried to get in touch with you and are awaiting your response.
    A – Suspected fraud – Every order will go through security checks before it is accepted and sometimes an order may be considered high risk and put into the status ‘Suspected fraud’ The order will then be checked by our fraud auditor and either accepted or cancelled depending on the outcome. These checks can take up to 48 hours to complete so if your order is delayed because of this, we will contact you to inform you and will refund any delivery cost you have paid.

  • Q - What if I have a faulty/snapped skateboard?

    A - We will only accept an item as faulty if there is a manufacturing fault. This does not include decks damaged due to skating error. Most snapped decks occur when a trick is landed incorrectly or if your feet are not positioned over the trucks. We cannot take responsibility for any damage caused in this manner.

After you have selected it you can choose for one of our team to apply it for you or it will be included in the parcel.
