Decatur Industrial Supply will refund the purchase price plus applicable sales tax for all returns that meet the policy explained here. If there was an error with the original product shipment and the error was ours or if the product was defective we will issue a UPS call tag to you in order to cover return shipping and will provide a replacement free of charge including shipping if a replacement is available. The replacement will be shipped once the incorrect or defective product is returned.
Obtaining a Return Authorization Number
Prior to any return, these three steps will ensure a smooth process. These essential steps pertain to any and all returns.
You MUST email our Customer Service Department for approval on our Contact Us page. Please have the following information available:
Your Original Order Number
Quantity to be returned
Manufacturer part number
Reason for the return
Customer Service will issue you a Return Authorization (RA) number.
Customer Service will issue you shipping instructions. Please provide your RA number on your shipping label and affix to shipping carton. In the case of multiple cartons, provide your RA number on EACH shipping label, AND indicate number of cartons, for example 1/3, 2/3, 3/3. If the shipping carton is the original manufacturer packaging, DO NOT write the shipping address or RA numbers directly on packaging as the product must be in resalable condition, with no defacing, to receive credit.
To receive credit, the merchandise must be in its original package and be in resalable condition. Products that do not meet these criteria will be returned to the customer and no credit will be issued. Return requests must be approved, processed, and returned to our distribution center within 30 days of the original invoice date. Some specialty items may require a 20% restocking fee. Returned items received outside of the 30-day return window will not be issued credit and will be sent back to the customer. Customers will be issued credits upon receipt and verification of the condition of product at our warehouse. In most cases, credit will be applied using the same method with which the product was originally purchased.
Decatur Industrial Supply will support the warranties from our suppliers and will execute their applicable written warranty policy. These warranties generally cover replacement of defective product that is returned. Regardless of the manufacturer’s policy we cannot provide credit for warranty issues that were not purchased from Decatur Industrial Supply.
