Return Policy & Procedure
Ultimately, The Chair Store wants our customers to be happy. We are people, just like you, and we want to work WITH you, not against you. We see this policy as flexible and not set in stone, and we will work with you to come to an amicable solution in the unfortunate event that you are dissatisfied with your purchase. However, listed as follows is the way our returns process normally works.
Step 1: Contact Us
Let us know what the problem is. Please call 800.883.1423 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of your order date to alert us to an issue with your purchase. We will want to ask questions like: Is your product defective in some way? Did you order something incorrect? Is the product simply no longer wanted or necessary? Once your product is determined to be eligible for a return, we will issue you an RMA number and a return address. Please do not return the product without this authorization.
Step 2: What is the nature of the return?
For defective product(s): If you have contacted us, and we have determined that your product suffers from a manufacturing defect or was damaged in transit, we will replace your product or refund your purchase at no additional cost to you. It’s important to keep your original box and packing materials. In most cases, The Chair Store will issue a return label to you while simultaneously shipping out your replacement product, so you can place the return label on the shipping carton that contains the damaged or defective product, get it shipped out, and get the return started before the replacement product arrives. Once that return label is affixed to the carton, let us know, and we will work with you to schedule a shipping carrier to pick the package up from your location. Alternatively, you can also take the shipment to the corresponding carrier’s pickup location if it is convenient for you.
For non-defective product(s): If you have contacted us, and we have determined that your product is not defective, you are still eligible for returns, exchanges, or refunds. However, these types of returns are not necessarily free-of-charge. The Chair Store will accept returns only for AS-NEW, RESTOCKABLE items. There is no restocking fee. For exchanges, you are responsible for the charges of shipping the product back to us, but The Chair Store will cover the cost of shipping your new product to you (up to the cost of the original shipping charges). The Chair Store reserves the right to choose the shipping method for your replacement item that is both economical for us and fair to you. In almost all cases, this means that your new product will ship with standard ground service. As an example, let’s say you buy a canvas set in one color and then decide that you would rather have a different color. After obtaining authorization to exchange your canvas set, you would be responsible for paying the fees to ship it back to us. Upon receipt of your unwanted canvas set, we would then select a method of shipment and get your new canvas set on its way to you.
Other Details About Returns
Aside from defective products, sales of personalized items are final and are not returnable.
Shipping costs from your original order are non-refundable. In the event that you are due a refund after an order return (or a partial refund after an item exchange), please note that the shipping costs will not be refunded. Also, please note that if you are exchanging your items for other products that have higher shipping rates you will be responsible for the difference in freight between your original order and your exchange shipment. As an example, if you return an 18″ chair (original flat-rate shipping cost of $20) in exchange for a 30″ chair (original flat-rate shipping cost of $30), The Chair Store will cover $20 of the cost to ship your new 30″ chair, and you will be responsible for the remaining $10.
The Chair Store strongly recommends you fully insure your return shipment in case it is lost or damaged and you use a carrier that can provide you with proof of delivery for your protection.
Manufacturer restrictions on returns do apply in some cases.
If shipping cartons arrive with noticeable damage, it is best to REFUSE it back to the carrier attempting delivery. If you accept the package make sure it is noted on the carrier’s delivery record in order for The Chair Store to file a damage claim. Save the merchandise AND the original box and packing it arrived in, notify The Chair Store immediately to arrange for a carrier inspection and a pick up of damaged merchandise. If you do not notify The Chair Store of damaged goods within the first 15 days of arrival, our regular return policy will override any claim of damage and will fall under all current manufacturer restrictions.
The Chair Store reserves the right to authorize product returns beyond 30 days from the invoice date. Final discretion with authorization of returns, exchanges, or refunds falls to The Chair Store. We may be flexible with these policies as we see fit.
After 30 days, your product may still be covered under the manufacturer’s warranties. Contact us and we will help you determine if your product is eligible for coverage.
We have no control over the shipping carriers. If your product arrives later than we said it would due to a delay in transit, we empathize with you, but The Chair Store will not be held liable and reserves the right to offer no recourse.
