|Return for exchange or refund will be allowed only within 14 calendar days from the date of purchase with no exception. All authorized return merchandise must be unused and in its original saleable packaging including all hardware, instructions, stickers, and invoice. No return or exchange on merchandise that shows signs of having been installed, modified, mounted, test fitted, removed from packaging, scratched or defaced will be allowed. RETURN AUTHORIZATION NUMBER must be obtained before any returns can be made. We will not accept any returns without this number. Please write the R.A. Number clearly on the outside of the returning package and tag the items inside with your full name and the R.A Number. All returns must be received by Subtle Solutions within 10 calendar days after the R.A. Number has been issued. The Return Authorization number does not imply a replacement or refund, but only that we will inspect the merchandise based on your claim. Returns must be sent prepaid, insured, and tracking must be addded by the customer looking to return an item. The original shipping & handling charges are not refundable. A photo copy of your invoice showing the invoice number must accompany your return along with a written explanation and a contact phone number where we may be able to reach you. It is the responsibility of the customer/installer to verify the correct size and application of the parts before installation. Our standard 20% restocking fee (Original product cost minus 20% and minus original shipping charges) will be assessed on all authorized returns. Any return/exchange, that is NOT due to a mistake by Subtle Solutions, will be subject to non-refundable original shipping costs. The amount paid for original shipping will be deducted from your total refund amount along with the 20% restocking fees.
If for some reason we made the mistake and shipped you the incorrect part, the 20% restocking fee will be waived if the item is returned in "new" unmounted or unused condition and can be resold as "new". We will cover your return shipping expenses at a rate of which it cost us to originally send you the product. If we shipped your item UPS ground, you will need to return the item using the same shipping method. Or, if we shipped your item via USPS Priority flat rate or regular USPS Priority, you should return ship using the same method or cheaper. It is best to have you return your order using the most cost effective method possible. Using the box that we sent you originally is also preferred. WE WILL NOT COVER THE EXTRA SHIPPING EXPENSES IF YOU DECIDE TO SEND YOUR RETURNED PRODUCT USING A MORE EXPENSIVE OPTION (EXPRESS, NEXT DAY, ETC). YOU WILL ONLY BE CREDITED/REFUNDED THE AMOUNT THAT IT COST US TO SEND YOU THE PACKAGE ORIGINALLY. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR COVERING YOUR BOX FEES, PACKING MATERIAL FEES, OR HANDLING FEES. While you may be impatient and want to send it as fast as possible to us, we will only cover the return shipping amount as the same cost we originally shipped the box to you, or at a lesser value.
No cancellations, refunds, or exchanges on special order items or custom order items will be allowed.
It is also the customers responsibility to repack the item(s) that are being returned and make sure that it is properly and securely packed with sufficient packaging material to prevent the item from being damaged. We cannot give credit or refund on a returned package that got damaged due to insufficient packing.
