Return Policy

For most in-stock products without a lead time, returns within 30 days of purchase are accepted. A copy of the invoice, packing slip, or sales form is required for all returns. We will typically cover the cost of return shipping only in cases where the product received is incorrect or damaged during transit. No returns are accepted after 30 days.

All items marked as "Non-Returnable" are not returnable. For products that have a lead time, or are a) oversized, b) drop-shipped from the manufacturer, c) shipped by freight, d) large orders, e) custom/special ordered: a product may be non-returnable. Please contact us for details about specific products or quantities before ordering, or to coordinate with us in cases where there is a problem with your order. We do our best to make an order right, which may include (but is not limited to): replacing the item, sending requisite parts to modify the product appropriately, or a partial or full refund.

We will contact you for approval if we have to charge an additional amount for shipping.

Shipping Damages

Problems with shipping damage?
3 Easy Steps to follow to make sure you get paid for your claim:
Damage can sometimes occur during the shipment of your orders. To help you have a better opportunity at resolving freight claims with common carriers, we recommend the following:

  1. When you receive a delivery, sign the bill of lading "subject to internal inspection." You then have 24 hours after receiving your order to contact the carrier and report any damage. The truck company cannot decline the freight claim as easily and your claim does not necessarily fall under the concealed damage category.

    You still need to always note any obvious or potential damage on the bill of lading when you receive an order. Use of the "subject to internal inspection" terminology gives you more leverage with a carrier than a concealed damage claim that has been signed free and clear at the time of delivery.

  2. Fax or send us a copy of the freight bill which notes the damage or shortage.

  3. Call the freight company and request a claim form within 15 days after the product delivery. Upon receipt of form, complete and return to freight company.
