Restocking Fees

Under certain conditions, some companies will accept a return on a product, but only refund a portion of the price paid for it. A percentage of the price, usually between 15% and 25%, will be forfeited to what is commonly called a restocking fee. These fees normally apply to items returned on buyer's remorse, not exchanged due to damage or defects. Restocking fees are imposed by all our manufacturers and there are legitimate reasons why you should expect to pay such a fee, which we'll outline below.

Why do many companies charge restocking fees?

The reason is simple: to keep costs (and thus prices) down when dealing with the return of items that are not defective. There are a lot of costs associated with processing an order. If you buy something and then return it, the company has to deal with more costs to handle the return.

In many cases, the company is stuck with a product that cannot be sold as new anymore.

Would you want to buy a product that is supposed to be new and instead receive a box that has been opened and a product used by another customer? Most likely not, and if you do buy something online, you would expect it to be brand new, first quality, and factory sealed by the manufacturer.

What if a customer orders a mirror and then decides to return it because they realize it wasn't the one they wanted, or it is bigger than they imagined, or they don't like its color, or for any of a thousand other reasons? The mirror arrives back at the manufacturer with fingerprints on it, with packaging that has been ripped open and haphazardly reassembled. The manufacturer now has to return it to saleable condition. The question is who should pay for all this cost?

All returns must be thoroughly inspected when received back at the warehouse to ensure they are in 100% resalable condition.

New packaging materials usually need to be utilized because it is typically only designed to be used two times (initial use and possible return shipment). Time and materials involved with inspecting, repackaging and restocking are significant.

What about shipping costs associated with returns on buyer's remorse?

Most companies these days offer free shipping and customers expect the same. But is shipping really ever free? The simple answer is no. If you purchase an item and keep it, the actual shipping costs come out of dealer's profit margin. If the item is returned, there is no profit and the customer is responsible to pay the actual shipping charges in both directions. After all, UPS and FedEx do not offer their services for free.

The bottom line is restocking fees are a statement by companies that they feel the person who decides to return a non-defective item should pay for the associated costs.

This is perfectly fair, as long as restocking fees are only charged in cases where an item is returned due to a bad buying decision. The customer should be held accountable for their mistakes. If you do find a company that has no restocking fees, you pay for frivolous returns that company handles, indirectly, through higher prices and/or poor customer service.

 

Refunds

Transactions are automatically settled each day and funded within 2-3 days. A confirmation email of the refund will be sent advising you that the credit has been processed. Please allow 2-3 business days to see the credit on your account.

Processing Time: The normal turn-around time for an order can take up to two (2) business days unless stated otherwise on our website, the product page itself, and/or the order receipt that is emailed to you upon purchase. Lead-times or back order dates on the product page denote the time it may take before an item will be available for shipping. Weekends and major holidays do not count as we are closed. Next-Day or 2nd-Day shipping does not necessarily guarantee you will receive your shipment the next day or within two days, however, we do our best to accommodate all shipping requests.

We will make every effort to contact you in the event your item is backordered or for any other unforeseen delay in shipping your order.

Shipping Damage Claims for Non-Freight Orders: If after you open your item you discover that there has been shipping damage, please notify us promptly. In most cases the following may occur:

  • Digital photos may be needed of the damage in order to submit the damage claim to the carrier – please email these to cservice@usaindustrialsupply.com
  • Please retain the original box that the item came in.
  • UPS or FedEx may schedule a time to come and inspect the item in order to verify the claim
  • UPS or FedEx may come and pick the item up and ship it back to USA Industrial Supply.
  • Upon receipt of the item from UPS or FedEx, verification that the item was indeed the original item sent out, and verification that UPS or FedEx is processing the claim, we will refund your purchase price.
  • Shipping costs are NEVER refundable.

 

Freight Shipping

For items that are required to ship via freight, a general shipping estimate will be provided to you at checkout. Please note that in some cases this amount may be lower than what the actual shipping costs are due to variables like product size, weight, quantity, ship-to location (commercial, residential, rural), and whether you require liftgate service. For these reasons, you are encouraged to contact us for a freight quote prior to placing an order. A sales representative may contact you if any adjustments to reflect the actual freight charge are necessary.

Things that will be considered when calculating LTL freight are:

  1. Is the delivery to a commerical or residential address?
  2. Size, weight, density, and travel distance from warehouse
  3. Is Liftgate Service needed to bring the item down from the delivery truck?

We use multiple freight carriers so if you have a carrier that you prefer, please contact us to inquire whether or not we use that carrier. Freight terminal pick-ups are generally prohibited - delivery must go to the shipping address on your order.

Please note that when a freight order is placed, there is some lead-time before it is shipped - usually a couple business days, unless noted otherwise on your order. Freight transit time can vary anywhere from 1-14 days. Please login to your account at www.usaindustrialsupply.com to view your tracking information which will be updated as soon as the order is picked up.

When the freight carrier arrives in your area they will contact you by phone to setup a delivery time.

It's HIGHLY recommended you inspect your item(s) at the time of delivery before signing off on anything.

 

Charges for Incorrect Addresses and Undeliverable Orders

All orders that cannot be delivered and are returned to USA Industrial Supply for any reason will incur a 10% restocking fee.
