Returns Policy

If you are dissatisfied with your order for any reason, you can return your items for a prompt refund as long as the merchandise is in new and unused condition and you have received a return authorization number. Returns must be made within 30 days of the purchase date and will be credited in the same form as the original payment type. The original shipping and handling charges are not refundable (We will pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error). After the 30 day period, a return may be accepted at our discretion; however, it will be subject to a restocking fee of up to 30%. Please note that it takes us 7-10 business days to process returns once they arrive at our Returns Center.

Warranty Service Repair Work
It is very uncommon to encounter defects in newly purchased items, occasionally it will happen and repair will become necessary (while the product is still under warranty). Generally, all warranty repair work will be handled directly by the manufacturer. Before sending anything back to the manufacturer for warranty work, contact us and we will be sure to direct you to the right person or company. Also, we appreciate knowing when one of our products has a defect in case it effects other products in our inventory.

Package Damage
Any returns of packages or products must have authorization before returning, please follow the steps in our return policy. Every effort will be made to settle the claim in a timely, fair and reasonable way; we will work with our customers to a resolution of the claim that can include repairing the item, selling the items for salvage, or replacing the item.

Examine all packages before signing for them for signs of damage and mishandling. Inspect the contents as soon as possible and count all the products to compare with the items shown on the invoice. Claims must be filed within ten (10) days of receipt of goods. For damaged shipments delivered when you were not at home, contact us via e-mail at or fill out the Contact Us Form and describe the damage. If there is minor damage and we can replace a part this may be a faster resolution. If the package needs to be returned you will be advised how to proceed.
