Warranty and RMA Guidelines

Within 15 days of shipment, you may return any item in brand new condition for a refund (we do not refund the shipping cost unless the return is a result of our error).

Items must be returned brand new in original factory condition and packaging and must contain manuals and accessories. We will not accept returns of opened items (unless defective) or any items returned more than 30 days after shipment. If it has been more than 30 days and the item is defective, we ask that you please fill out an RMA form and inquire about the warranty details for the product. In certain circumstances some defective products will require repair/replacement by the manufacturer. In these cases we will ask that it be shipped freight pre- paid to the address on the RMA form.

Unwanted Returns: Unwanted returns will be subject to a 25% restocking fee, you must obtain an RMA# and merchandise must be in unused condition.

Refused Delivery: All refused deliveries (Unwanted Returns) will all be subject to a 25% restocking fee. Refunds will be issued minus restocking fee, and shipping and handling both ways.

All returns must include a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA#). Please contact us at 919-556-7480 and request an RMA # and shipping instructions for your return. Returns that do not include an RMA# will be assessed a re-stocking fee or will be returned to the sender with no credit given.

We recommend that you ship your return via a traceable shipping method (e.g., Fedex, UPS, USPS with shipment confirmation). We are not responsible for returns that are not sent by a traceable method (i.e., we will not issue credit for returns sent through the mail that never show up). Please allow approximately 7-10 business days for your return to be processed once it has arrived at our facility.

If you are requesting a replacement for a defective item, we will ship your replacement after we receive and process your returned product. If you need a replacement right away, we suggest you request a credit (rather than a replacement), when you obtain your RMA number, then place a new order. The new order will be shipped as soon as we have your product available and your credit will be applied approximately 4-7 days after we receive the product you are returning.

For international orders, we will not be responsible for return shipping costs nor will we refund original shipping costs. This is the risk you the buyer accept by purchasing from our factory and requesting we ship internationally.
