We will retain the remaining 50% (one half as a restocking fee 25% and the other 25% for repair services and selling fees.
  • There is no acceptable reason for returning repairable products, because warranty service is completely or 100% paid for by the manufacturer and is at no cost to You.

You should be aware that the freight company can be late and NOT give you a refund, if they can show that the delay is due to an "act of god". Typically in a hurricane, tornado or fire area, trucks are not allowed to pass or the roads are blocked or airports are closed. Federal tariffs permit delivery at the earliest possible date after the company is prevented from delivering by causes beyond it's control. We only collect for the trucking company and We cannot provide refunds for late delivery unless and until the trucking company gives Us a refund. These refunds are rare.
