Defective Item

  • A word about returns. Our goal is to support you and to help you support your customer. However, before you take a return from a customer you need to be aware that most manufacturers handle warranties directly. Products that are old, subject to abuse (wet, run-dry, salt covered, or just plain worn out) will not be replaced or credited. Before you give a customer a replacement, you need to confirm that you will be credited. Old products coming back in new boxes do not qualify as a new product. If you have a question, please contact us or the manufacturer.

Damaged Shipments

  • Please inspect every shipment upon receipt. If your shipment arrives damaged or incomplete, immediately notify us. You must file a claim with the shipper. We also must be contacted within 24 hours. All parcels are insured so keep all original packaging and shipping box in case an inspection is required. Arrangements can then be made to send a replacement item.
