RGA Policy

We will assist you in handling all returns in a prompt and fair manner. Please help us with this process (reducing costs and minimizing delays) by contacting our inside sales team with the Invoice Number and return information. Every effort will be made to correct our errors promptly. Corrections on Stock Material are usually completed on the same or next business day.

Please note that warehouse personnel and drivers are not authorized to approve returns or accept any material without authorization from our inside sales team.
