Defective Products

Warranties are issued by the individual manufacturers of each product. Warranties usually cover defects in materials and workmanship. Damage from any type of abuse or neglect is not covered. The manufacturer may choose to either repair or replace a product they feel is covered under the warranty. Some manufacturers require the warranty item to be sent directly to them others prefer us to handle it. If you feel you have a defective product you may contact the manufacturer for a return authorization directly or you can contact us. It is usually faster to contact the manufacturer directly. Most manufacturers will not accept shipment without a return authorization. We can supply you with the manufacturer contact numbers for all of the products we sell. Shipping and labor are not covered by most warranties. To obtain a Return Authorization for defective products being shipped to us, please contact us. We must be contacted before we will accept any warranty items.

Damaged in Shipping

We will replace any product damaged in shipping. This does not include items that have been installed. Contact us via email or telephone to get started.

How to Return a Product

Any return being sent back to us must have a valid Return Authorization number issued by us. There are two ways to obtain the Return Authorization number. Using our website, you can login to your account, view your order history, and use our Online Return Authorization process. You can also contact us via email or telephone to acquire a Return Authorization number.
