Customers who fail to return an extra part to us after receiving their replacement under the Shipping Assurance program will be charged for the replacement.

Customers are also required to cooperate with any carrier investigations of a loss or damage. Failure to do so will result in being charged for the replacement.


Q: Are all orders eligible?

A: If Shipping Assurance is offered during the checkout then an order is eligible.

Customer delivery location, shipping method, certain items, or an abnormal claims history may make an order ineligible and in those situations it will not be offered as an option. Changes to your order after it is placed may make the order ineligible. If this occurs, the charge will be refunded.


Q: Is Shipping Assurance refundable?

A: Shipping Assurance isn't refundable after an order has shipped. If you'd like to remove it from an order that hasn't shipped yet please contact our Customer Service team.
