Special Order Items
There are no returns allowed for products which have been specially ordered for you and dropped by the manufacturer. These items are not routinely stocked at our warehouse and therefore cannot be returned.
All orders can be cancelled within a period of time once the order has been placed or before it gets shipped out.

If you do not cancel the order until after it has already been shipped, you may refuse the delivery once it gets to your location and this will be returned to the manufacturer. Keep in mind that it will then fall within our return policy guidelines.
Defective or Damaged Goods
All products must be verified and inspected once delivered to you before you sign the Bill of Lading/delivery receipt from the carrier.
All products with factory defects, missing parts or other problems originated prior to shipment can be reported as soon as this is delivered.
Be aware, you have 48 hours in order to make the claim.
If your product arrives damaged, please ”Refuse” or “Accept” and notes must be made on the bill of lading as to obvious damage. Pictures are very necessary in order to make the claim with the manufacturer.
Please contact us immediately so we can process the appropriate claims and coordinate with the manufacturer on what needs to be done.
If you sign the delivery receipt without inspecting the shipment you will be responsible for filing a freight claim and arranging for a repair or return of the damaged goods. Concealed damage claims must be reported immediately.
If you suspect concealed damage, take pictures of the damaged package and notate "Possible Freight Damage" on the delivery receipt while the driver is present. This way, if you discover later that the product is damaged, the remedy of a freight claim is less of a hassle.
