What should I do if my order arrives damaged?

Although it is extremely rare, sometimes items do arrive damaged. If your item is being delivered by freight carrier, please note: you MUST immediately inspect the package for potential damage at the time of delivery. While it is normal for cartons to show some wear, if it appears that damage to the item has occurred, write "PRODUCT DAMAGED" on the sheet that the freight company asks you to sign, do not accept the delivery, and call us at 1-888-258-8970. Click here for more information on accepting freight shipments. Once you contact us, we will work together with the freight company to determine whether the item is damaged and identify the source of the damage. If it is clear that the item is in fact damaged, we will make arrangements to have a replacement sent out to you and have the original item returned. If it is determined that the item is not in fact damaged, the item will be re-delivered to you.

When accepting a freight shipment, it is very important that you note any damage at the time of delivery in order to facilitate the damage claim process. When damage is noted only after the item has been accepted for delivery free and clear, you may need to file a concealed damage claim with the freight company. If, after accepting delivery, you discover concealed damage that was not apparent at the time the item was delivered, please contact us immediately at 1-888-258-8970 so we can assist you. Please also be sure to keep all the original boxes and packaging until your damage claim is resolved. In cases where only part of your item is damaged, we may be able to send out a replacement part, although for some items that may not be possible. In cases where sending out replacement parts is not an option, we will help you file a concealed damage claim with the freight company, for full or partial compensation. All damage claims are time sensitive and must be reported no later than 7 days after the item is received. We regret that we cannot accommodate freight damage claims that are reported more than 7 days after delivery.

If you receive a damaged item from a UPS or FedEx shipment, simply notify us within 7 days of receiving your shipment. We will send out a replacement and arrange for the damaged item to be picked up. In some cases, if only a part of the item is damaged, we may send out a replacement part. In cases where the damage can be corrected with replacement parts, we will not replace the entire item. We regret that we cannot accommodate damage claims that are filed more than 7 days after delivery. Depending on the item you've ordered and the nature of the damage, damage claims and claims for replacement items can sometimes take several weeks or more to process; therefore, should you receive a damaged item, we may recommend that you place a new order for a replacement to expedite processing and delivery. In this case, when the damage claim is resolved, we will issue you a full credit for your original purchase.
