Return Goods Authorization

Reporting Damages, Errors or Shortages
We take great pride in picking and packing your order so you receive the products you ordered in excellent condition. In the unlikely event your shipment arrives damaged or you find an error or shortage in your shipment, please notify us within 3 business days of delivery. For damages, please keep all products in the original box with original packing materials to allow us to file a claim with the carrier. Failure to do so will result in a delay of the carrier’s investigation. Credit or replacement products will not be issued until the carrier completes their investigation. Emailing pictures of the damage to us at may also help expedite the claim.
