No returned merchandise will be accepted without a Return Authorization Number (RA#) and a copy of the invoice. Please email, firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the Return Procedures above to obtain a RA# and shipping instruction. An RA# is valid for 30 days after issue.
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return the new/unused product for a refund/store credit within 30 days. Products may incur a 20% restocking fee ($5.00 minimum). If the returned product included a free product promotion, the promotional product must also be returned. All products and accessories must be returned in the original packaging with no writing, stickers, or other markings on them. All products must be returned in sellable condition. Products will be inspected upon arrival before issuing a refund/store credit. Products that are returned with missing parts, used, dirty, or damaged, may be refused or may be subject to a reduced refund/store credit depending on the product condition.
Cancelled Orders - An order that has shipped cannot be canceled. Please contact us immediately if you would like an order cancelled at email@example.com. If your order has already been shipped, and you would like to cancel the order, please do not reject the package when it arrives. Accept the package from your courier and follow our return policy. If you refuse an order which has already shipped, not due to damage, it will delay the return process and incur extra costs for return shipping. This cost is dependent on the product refused and the destination location. The customer must cover the cost of the original shipping, return shipping, freight rerouting fees, and restocking fees. This amount will be deducted from the overall refund/store credit.
Clearance Products – All sales are final on clearance products.
Custom Order Products - There are no returns allowed for custom products. These products are not routinely stocked at our warehouse and therefore cannot be returned.
Damaged Products – Occasionally, products do arrive damaged in transit. Inspect product deliveries before you sign the delivery receipt from the carrier. 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. If damaged product deliveries do not require a signature, contact Frank Rowe & Son to start the claim process. Call immediately. Concealed damage claims must be reported. Shipping claims are time sensitive. Provide photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep all packaging material so that a shipping claim can be processed.
Suspect Damage - On occasion, the outer carton may look damaged, but the product inside the box is perfectly fine. If you suspect concealed damage, 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.
Obvious Damage - Do not sign for damaged products. If your product arrives damaged, please REFUSE DELIVERY, and call immediately. Provide photos via email to email@example.com. We will process the appropriate claims and coordinate an exchange for you.
Defective Products - We encourage you to test your product within 15 days of receipt so we can quickly remedy any mechanical problems. If you think your product is defective, do not worry.
