Shipped Item Returns Policy
You are responsible for inspecting your merchandise when it is delivered. If there is excessive damage or the shipment is incorrect, you should refuse the shipment, locate your order number and call customer service at 1-865-622-2026.
Occasionally, delivery drivers do not allow enough time for you to inspect the shipment, or the order is delivered while you are not there. If the driver does not allow you time to inspect your shipment, sign for it, noting "damaged" on the bill of lading.
It is your responsibility to fully inspect your merchandise within five business days of receipt. If you find you have a problem with damage or an incorrect shipment, you must contact us during this period. We cannot be held responsible for damages or incorrect shipments if you wait beyond this period to inform us.
As long as you contact us during this period, any item that is damaged when it arrives or that does not arrive as ordered (size, color, or features were not as you specified) will be promptly replaced by us at no additional cost to you.
If you order something and it arrives as ordered but you subsequently decide you want or need to return it, you will be responsible for all shipping charges, including return charges. You must contact us within two weeks to return these items. In some cases, you will need to pay a restocking fee of 15-30% as well. (We will try our best to get the restocking fee waived by the manufacturer but we are not always successful.) So if you're not sure about a color or a size, please ask. We want to help you purchase exactly what you want on the first try.
Important Note: Please keep the original cartons in which your order shipped until you are satisfied that your merchandise is correct and undamaged. Most manufacturers will not accept returns of merchandise not in the original packaging, and freight companies often ask to inspect the packaging if a shipment is reported as damaged.
Some items we sell have additional return restrictions. Please make note of the following:
All sales of clearance products are final. While individual warranties may still be honored by their respective manufacturers, School Outfitters will not accept returns on any clearance items.
Some of our manufacturers consider user-assembled products “used” once they have been put together, even if they are disassembled for return. As such, they may not be returnable.
