Restocking Fee

All returned merchandise may be subject to a restocking fee and return shipping costs, unless the item is being returned as a result of our error (damaged, defective, wrong item sent, etc.).

Damages & Shortages

We take great care to have delivered goods counted and checked before shipping to avoid errors. Upon delivery of any package, do a careful examination for damaged or shorted items and make a notation on the Carrier's receipt. Please note that by giving the Carrier a signed receipt accepting the goods without notation of damage or shortage, you assume responsibility for the condition of the packaged items. Damages and shortages must be noted along with your signature. In order to receive a refund or exchange for damaged or shorted items, you must contact Customer Service within 48 business hours of receipt.


Currently, RW Smith does not offer an exchange program for returned merchandise except when replacing damaged goods, and for special circumstances. If you would like to request an exchange, contact our Customer Service Department for assistance.
