Terms and Conditions
CostPlus Return Policy:
The customer is always right. It’s an old statement but a true one. A repeat customer is what we have built 30 years of business on.
We want you happy with your purchase experience. Returns do happen. All stocked products typically are returnable without question with the customer being responsible for the returned freight only. If it’s our error we only ask that the containers and boxing be retained and the product reshipped in the same container. We will issue a pick ticket for those products in question. Some of our factories charge a minimal restocking fee on those stocked purchases so call us if there is a problem. We will let you know which of the various factories we represent have restocking fee return programs. It does vary on the product purchased. Factory returns are always contingent on the factory acceptance of the terms of sale. For example, Drive Medical has a very liberal policy on returns. Usually never a problem. However with products that are used in medical situations (example a blood draw chair) the product may have been exposed to blood pathogens or other health hazards so these type of returns become an issue. In those situations the product cannot be resold due to legal resale restrictions. We would ask you to liquidate the product and show pictures of disposal.
Custom made products- made to customer specifications cannot be canceled once the order acknowledges from the factory. This applies in situations where custom fabric or finish was ordered according to customer specifications. In situations like this if for some reason the color was off we will work with you to find another buyer and to sell off the unwanted goods. We only ask you hold on to the shipment while we find another buyer.
Factory defects- Return to factory is free of charge and without penalty. In established cases where there is a factory defects we extend 100% credit and return of goods or disposal. We may offer a factory additional allowance discount or purchase options with customer approval. A credit to your account is made once the return goods arrive at the factory dock location.
Merchandised returned that is unsuitable for resale and NOT in the factory container with existing packing materials no credit may be extended. In these situations it is a total loss for CostPlus Supply and our factory -No credit may be extended. We will however work diligently as a surplus reseller to liquidate the product quickly and with minimal financial impact to all. Remember to keep the boxes.
All shipments should be carefully inspected for damage upon receipt. Any carton damage should be noted on the freight bill or delivery receipt. Concealed damage requires immediate inspection by carrier within 3 days from receipt of goods. CostPlus Supply LLC, Inc. will assist on facilitating a claim on behalf of its customers.
