Order return guidelines

When your shipment arrives, before opening the manufacturer packaging, please examine the contents of the box to make sure your order has been fulfilled correctly. If you have any questions about the items in your shipment, or if there is a problem with your order, please contact us at

•If you have received a product you did not order, we will gladly pay the return shipping cost and send the correct item(s), providing the product is still in its sealed manufacturer's packaging.
•If an item is damaged, or you believe it to be defective, we will work with you to determine the nature of the problem.
•If you wish to return one or more items for any other reason, you may do so, but items should be returned in their original condition with the manufacturer's packaging intact.
