How do I return an item?

For returns on items that are not damaged or defective, please fill out our returns form within 30 days of receipt of your merchandise. We will respond within 24 hours with a Return Authorization Number and instructions for returning the item to us. All returns MUST have a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Credits for returns received without an RMA number will be significantly delayed. These items maybe also be refused by the receiving warehouse. If so, they will be shipped back at the customer’s expense.

Damaged Items:

If your shipment is received damaged, a claim must be made within 3 days of receipt. Please open your package and inspect upon receipt. If a package arrives damaged, save all packing materials and contact us immediately. We will file a claim with the shipping company. In most cases, the purchase price and the original shipping costs (if charged) will be refunded to the original purchaser or we will send a replacement (whatever the customer decides).

Damaged Freight Items:

Freight shipments should be inspected carefully while the delivery driver is present. If any damage or shortage is noted, it is the customer’s responsibility to note the damage or shortage on the bill of lading before signing off on delivery. Please report the damaged or missing items to us, so that we may be able to ship replacements to you. If there is significant damage to a freight shipment, please note “damaged – refused” on the bill of lading and refuse the delivery. Please contact us for a reshipment. It is the customer’s responsibility to note any damage/shortage at the time of delivery. Claims made on freight bills that are signed clear (without damage) are often denied, resulting in further incurred expense for the customer.

Damaged/Defective Canopies:

If your canopy arrives damaged or defective, we will replace the parts that are damaged/defective, not the whole frame. If the customer elects not to receive parts and to ship the unit back for a new replacement frame, they will incur all shipping fees.
