Return Policy

Good Faith Returns

Returns must be requested within 15 days of order date and arrive at our warehouse within 25 days of our ship date.  Items that are damaged or abused, missing any accessories, missing the UPC, missing serial/identification numbers or are not in the original packaging cannot be returned; unless this is the fault of our or a 3rd party shipping provider. Delayed returns may not be credited.

  • Prompt returns  are credited at the purchase price paid
  • Items sold in “Quantity Packs Only” may only be returned in multiples of that quantity
  • On partial returns, quantity prices used for a quantity purchase will be reversed if the return means that less than the required quantity level was retained
  • Quotation Orders are ordered specifically for you and are NOT returnable.
  • All returns must be returned in original packaging.   If original packaging is not available, packaging must be provided by the order recipient.  The contents of the order must be packaged in a safe and secure manner, if not, our agreed upon 3rd party delivery service will not accept transporting of package.

You should expect to receive your refund within 3-5 business days once the package is received and inspected by our returns department; however, in many cases you will receive your refund more quickly. We’ll notify you via e-mail of your refund as soon as it is processed. Please note, credits are issued less any freight charges and a twenty-five percent restocking fee will be deducted from the sub-total of the order amount, where applicable. After two weeks, if you don’t receive credit, please contact us via e-mail at [email protected] so we can investigate. Please include your full name as it appeared on the order, address, order number, name of the shipper used, and the tracking number.

NOTE:

  • It is not worthwhile to return small low priced items where the shipping both ways exceeds the value of the return
  • It may not be logical to return large, bulky or heavy items where additional packing or shipping costs or surcharges are involved
  • Items whose sale was based on a quotation price are not returnable
  • Items shown as “Out of Stock” that we secure for you at your request are not returnable.
  • Delayed returns arriving at our warehouse after 25 days past our ship date may not be credited.
