To start a return over the phone, please call: (608) 370-8016.

Once the call has been answered, please state that you wish to start a return.  We will ask you for additional details such as your name and order number, so please have this information available before placing a call.  Please note that a return over the phone is only applicable during our business open hours of 9AM-5PM Monday-Friday – Central Time.

Step 2:

Pack Your Item Properly

Place your item back into the original manufacturer’s packaging. Then, place it and your order invoice into an outer shipping box. Be sure to pack it properly so your item won’t become damaged during transit.  Damages encountered during return shipping may deduct from the return value or void eligibility for a complete refund.  All items originally included in the product package must be included to be eligible for a complete refund.

Step 3:

Ship Your Item with Return Label.  You are responsible for the return label unless the product arrived defective or the wrong item, in which case we will supply you with a pre-paid return label.  Products found not to be defective upon return are subject to a return shipping negative credit from the refund amount.

Securely affix your return label to the outside of the shipping package. We recommend you ship via insured ground service with a tracking number. We cannot be responsible for lost packages.  Reference the return address below.

Shipping and handling fees are nonrefundable.

“14-Day” Return Window:

The 14-day return window is defined as the time from initial order placement as the timestamp registered by the website, and 14 full days from that date.  The order timestamp is recorded upon successful checkout.   Each “day” includes the standard 24 hours, business day, weekend, and holidays.  This amounts to 336 hours from initial order to placement, to the expiring of the open 14-day return window.  The 14-day return window does not start from the time of payment and/or the time the product is received to the end customer, but rather the time of order placement.  Should you wish to return an item, it must be returned within 14 days of the order completion date & time.
