Items which are no longer available, discontinued, obsolete, or special order/production, or otherwise deemed not returnable will not be accepted for return.

All costs and expenses associated with credit returns shall be borne by Purchaser. Return costs and expenses may include labor, material, administrative, and any other costs and expenses arising out of the return. A minimum 20% restocking charge may be assessed on all credit returns. Any credit will be subject to and conditioned the receipt of the returned items in new, unused, undamaged and saleable condition.
Seller may accept a credit return and waive the restocking or cancellation fee in the event Seller determines that the return was due to an error that was the fault of Seller.
