Q: When is my subscription going to be shipped?Asked by Christopher C., September 2020

FX Crate answered...May 2021

Hi Chris, thank you for your question! We aim to have your crate out the door within a week or two of ordering.


Q: What is the last day that I can subscribe to get this month's box?Asked by Christopher C., September 2020

FX Crate answered...May 2021

Hi Chris, great question! Ideally, you will want to have your order within the first 10 days of the month as this is typically when we put our orders in to our suppliers. If you happen to order outside this window but are still interested in that months crate we typically order a little extra to account for any new orders that come in at the end of the month.

I am SO glad I found FX Crate! 🙌🏼 I’ve been receiving my boxes now for quite some time and what I love most about them is their passion for the people, by always improving their crates based on the customers wants and needs. I’ve had the pleasure of communicating with them a lot, and they are the sweetest! Such an amazing company.
I’ve never had any issues with shipping, it brightens my day when I receive my boxes, and their products inside are always different each time. I’m no stranger to SFX, but I think this crate is perfect for all levels of talent whether you are starting out or a seasoned professional. There is no other box like this, hands down. I love that I’m always growing my SFX kit because of them. I couldn’t be more happy with it.

Ordered the May crate as a gift because the cratejoy site said it will arrive around the 25th, but according to the FX Crate site is SHIPS by the 30th at the latest. Bummed it wouldn't arrive by their bday, but oh well, right? Well on May 30th I get an email saying the May crate was delayed, but would ship within the next week. 2 weeks go by with no crate, so I decide to complain and realize there's no customee service phone #, just email... Bad sign... So I email a complaint and it got responded to a week later by asking me to verify something, which I did. It's now July 1st, and I haven't received a refund or a crate. What a freaking nightmare.

good selection

I got a email saying that my package was shipped on Aug 17th, but when I track the package it hasn't even been received at the UPS. The label has only been created.

Not worth the price.

Don't Waste Your Time or Money

Ordered an fx crate over a month ago for my daughter, they said it was sent out on the 21st of February. It is now March 5th and still no crate, sent 6 emails with no response. They send out a bogus tracking number which contains no information. This company doesn't even have a phone number to call for customer service. They tried to charge me for a second subscription box when I haven't even received the first one I ordered. DO NOT order anything from them. Your chances of actually getting it are slim. This is one shady company that only cares about taking your money, nothing else.

Not worth the cost

Severely disappointing.
They give you only some of the products to create the effect that they give the tutorial for. The item came very late (by comparison I had been gifted another subscription at the same time and received 2 boxes and a third delivered at the same time that this one came). I would suggest buying your own SFX makeup and supplies after watching other tutorials on youtube- at least then you can make sure you have everything needed to actually create the effect.

so awesome!!

I was very happy when I got this box. I subscribed in November and got a box full of blood stuff! I had a few questions and their customer service team was incredibly helpful. Loved the blood 10/10 would donate to Red Cross.
