What if I do not like the color/finishing of my cabinets, can I return my order?
Pictures are not accurate and different coloration may result depending on your computer’s screen settings. Therefore, ALWAYS order a door sample before purchasing any cabinet. Orders can be returned as long as they are in the original packaging, sealed and is not one of the non-returnable items - see Are there any items that cannot be returned?). There is a 30% restocking fee for all returned items and you would be responsible for the return shipping. The initial shipping charge you paid when placing the order will not be refunded, and in case your order qualified for free shipping, that originally waived shipping cost will be deducted from your refund. The order must be packed on a pallet and plastic wrapped. If damages occurred in transit, your refund may take a bit longer until a proper inspection by the trucking company is done. You may need to file a freight claim since you handle the return shipping yourself. We will only process your refund after all items are returned and accounted for in perfect shape, and all fees are applied to the balance.

If something is returned to the incorrect address, we won’t be able to issue a refund for that item.

Should I assemble cabinets with damages if I’m just waiting for a part?
Please DO NOT assemble these cabinets until customer service lets you know it is ok to proceed with assembly. The pictures needed by our claims department must be unassembled cabinets. Due to manufacturer guidelines, replacement parts will not be issued for cabinets that are already assembled because the manufacturer does not know the damage did not occur during assembly. Please leave any damaged cabinets unassembled.

What do I need to do on delivery besides unload the cabinets/accessories?
-Have extra help available. Do a piece count, make sure all ordered pieces are there, including accessories, and check for visible damages, such as cracks, dents, holes, etc…outside of the box. The driver will wait for you to check it and makes notes as needed. If there is anything missing (except back orders) or damaged, note it on the BOL and get a copy with the driver’s signature; notes must be on his and your copy too. This information must be accurate in order to process your replacement order.
Every box is inspected in the warehouses during preparation for shipping. When the trucking company picks up your order, they are responsible for any damages that occur in transit and will only approve replacements if the damages are noted on the shipping paperwork (Bill of Lading – BOL) on your delivery. Make sure you note any damage or missing items on the BOL.
