Shipping & Refund Policy
Refund and Exchange Policy for Special Order Items:
Please be advised that all special order items are customized and made to order, which necessitates that we adhere to a strict no-refund and no-exchange policy once these items have been picked up or delivered. We understand that this may be disappointing, but it is important to note that this policy is set forth by the manufacturer, and as a reputable company, we are obligated to abide by it.
The decision to have a no-refund and no-exchange policy on special order items is due to their personalized nature, as they are specifically tailored to meet your unique requirements. As a result, these items hold little to no resale value to other customers, making it impractical for us to accept returns or exchanges.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and sincerely appreciate your understanding in this matter. Our aim is to provide you with the highest quality products and exceptional service, and we believe that offering special order items enables us to fulfill your individual needs effectively.
Prior to placing an order for a special item, we encourage you to carefully review all specifications and details to ensure it aligns with your preferences. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our policy or need assistance with the ordering process, our dedicated customer support team is available to assist you.
Thank you for entrusting us with your special order, and we look forward to serving you with utmost professionalism and care.
