You must fill out Return Merchandise Authorization Form to get an R.M.A. number before returning merchandise.

Returned items must be accompanied by their original documentation (copy of invoice, receipt, etc.) and a copy of the email with an RMA Number.

Each returned item(s) will undergo inspection by our warehouse personnel and must be signed off by a manager before any refunds are authorized.

You will be notified by email once your return is processed.

Defective Item Refund

Please contact us immediately if you notice a manufacturer defect upon receiving the merchandise. When examining the defect, please do not confuse it with damage that occurred during the shipping process.

Our process of processing defective items is outlined below:

We will ask you to email a picture of the defective item and describe the nature of the defect.

All items sent back for defects will be examined and tested, so please describe how/when/where defect occurs.

If we determine, after reviewing the pictures, that the merchandise is a manufacturer defect, we’ll ask you to package the item back in the original box.

We will replace the defective item with new merchandise and ship out a new item at no charge.

All defective merchandise must be reported to our customer service no later than 15 days after the order was received.

Lost and Stolen Packages

1) Using your tracking information, please confirm if your package has completed delivery or if shipping activity is stagnant. 
2) Ask your neighbors if they received any packages under your name.
3) If it has been more than 24 hours after the expected delivery date and you have not received your package, please contact us immediately at for assistance.  

In the case that UPS has completed delivery and is able to provide proof of delivery, we will not be able to provide any reimbursements or refunds but will try our best to assist you in the investigation. 

Return Policy for Oversized or Large Order

Oversized items (over 150 lbs. shipped via a truck) are returnable as long as the order meets our return requirements. Keep in mind that the cost of the return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.


Due to a large volume of orders, it’s usually difficult for us to locate any one specific order. Therefore, if you need to cancel your order, you must notify our customer service via email or phone right away, within 12 hours of the purchase date and time.

We’ll be happy to cancel your order if and only if the items have not been shipped, with a 6% cancellation fee taken off of the total refund. If the items have been shipped, you must follow our return procedure.

Also, please keep in mind that, even though we’ll do our best, we cannot guarantee that we’ll be able to locate and cancel your package before shipment takes place.

All custom orders and made-to-order merchandise such as mesh, vinyl, and canvas tarps can be canceled within 12 hours, if and only if the order hasn’t been fabricated yet. However, once the fabric is cut, hems or the grommets are installed, the order cannot be modified or cancelled.
