Product Returns:

Returns: All returns must be handled by our Return Authorization Dept. Only boxes with an R.A.# clearly taped on the outside of the box will be accepted. Merchandise returned for any reason other than shipping error or defect will be assessed a 20% restocking fee and must be in its original box and packaging. A shipment refused for any reason is subject to freight charges both ways, a $25.00 restocking fee for the first $500.00, and $5.00 for each additional $250.00. These charges must be paid in advance of your next order. This is necessary to clear your account to “SHIP OK” status. Any new merchandise returned after six (6) months could be assessed a higher restocking fee. All new merchandise is guaranteed for six (6) months from date of shipment, by GS Distributing. After six (6) months, manufacturer’s warranties apply (repair only). Please note that Special Order Product is not returnable.
