Returns are accepted:
- Only unopened merchandise can be returned within 15 days,
- Item is returned with its original quality seal unbroken,
- Item is in "unused" condition,
- Item is returned with a Return Authorization Number.
Items that have been unpacked cannot be returned. If you would like to return an item, please fill out the form below to request a Return Authorization Number. Instructions for return will be emailed to you. Returns will not be accepted without a Return Authorization Number. RMA numbers are good for 15 days, so items must be returned promptly. Any return made with an RMA that is more than 15 days old will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of GUARDTEX. Any item returned 1 month or more after the RMA was issued, will be rejected and returned to the sender.
Refunds for return of non-defective items will be for the purchase price minus a 20% restocking fee and the cost GUARDTEX incurred in shipping the item to you. Also, the cost of shipping the item back to GUARDTEX will not be refunded.
It is imperative that you do not return an item to our warehouse if you have purchased it on Amazon.com. Amazon.com must handle all stages of a return or an exchange for items purchased on Amazon.com. GUARDTEX will not issue refunds for returns made to our warehouse without an RMA. We require an RMA so that we are able to match your return to your order. Refunds on non-defective, undamaged items will equal the purchase price minus a 20% restocking fee as well as the shipping costs. Shipping costs include the amount that GUARDTEX paid to ship the item to you, and those shipping costs are deducted from refunds for returns.
** There is an exception to this rule in the case of Special Order, Discontinued and Close Out items. All sales on Special Order, Discontinued and Close Out items are final. Special Order, Discontinued and Close Out items cannot be returned
Any order that is changed or canceled after it has already shipped, whether or not the delivery is rejected, is considered to be a non-defective return. Rejected deliveries are always considered to be non-defective returns, so if you suspect damage, do not reject the delivery. Have the delivery driver make a note of the damage. Shipping charges (both to you and back to us) will be deducted from your refund for orders that are canceled after shipping. Please handle product packaging with care, as there may be a 20% restocking fee charged to you if the packaging or the item does not return to us comparable to the condition in which it was shipped.
GUARDTEX has a 15-day exchange policy on defective items only. A defective item is defined as one that has a manufacturing flaw (the flaw existed before shipping and was not created in transit). Defective items cannot be returned for a refund, they can only be exchanged for the same non-defective item. The warranty period begins upon purchase of an item, except in the case of a "special order" item which begins upon delivery of the item. Defective items can be returned for an exact exchange only and must be in their original packaging.
