No Hassle Return Policy

You’re an important customer, and our local gearhead shops appreciate your business. Hopefully everything is perfect with your shipment. However, if you are not satisfied with your online purchase, you can return your order by following the instructions below. Returns must be made within 30 days of receiving, and items must be in the same condition it was sent to you with the original packaging. We ask that you ensure your return is packaged within a shipping box or a bag. Items returned using the product box as a shipping box cannot be accepted. (For example, if you purchased a pair of shoes, the shoe box must be placed WITHIN a shipping box and not marked or altered.) We will credit your original payment method. Items should be returned with the original hang tags. Need more? Here’s the fine print, spelled out for easy use.
