Please also notify our customer service department of refusal so we can track and anticipate the return. This helps us expedite the replacement process.
Our carriers require us to file claim with “signed for damage” on Bill of lading at the time of delivery, if not, they will not process claim for us. Normally, the driver will give around 15 mins for inspection if the consignee requests.

Upon confirming that you have received an incorrect shipment, our customer service department will provide you with a return label that you may use to return the incorrect item back to our facility. Upon receipt of the return, we will ship out the correct product, usually within 1-3 days. If you would like to expedite the process, you may place a new replacement order and wait for us to receive the return for your subsequent credit.
