The Gazebo Store's Return Policy
At TheGazeboStore.com we make returns as easy as possible. Our mission is to provide you with the best products and the best service in the Gazebo Industry. We understand that customers can change their minds about their purchases. We are aware that customers are cautious about Return Policies since they are often tricky and misleading. Our goal is to make the return or exchange process trustworthy and as simple as 1-2-3.
If you have received something different than your order, please notify us within 10 days of delivery because otherwise we won't be able to take it back.
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return the item within 7 days of delivery of your order. For orders placed during the holiday season from November 15th to December 31st, the return period is extended to 15 days. The following rules apply:
- Products must be returned in their original packaging, and original condition.
- All returns must be made via our Return Procedure with a valid RMA number.
- Order cancellations can only be requested prior to shipment. If the order is already shipped, you will have to ship it back, at your own expense, for a full refund.
- TheGazeboStore will never pay for return shipping, for any reason whatsoever.
- We do not sell used products and cannot accept returns for used tents. A tent that started to be assembled is considered used. A used party tent is subject to extra fees which will be determined by TheGazeboStore to return the party tent to a brand new state (if possible).
- If you decide to return a product we will deduct a 20% restocking fee. We will also deduct the amount we originally payed to ship the product to you.
- If we judge that the returned, used/damaged product cannot be brought to a "Like New" condition using the 20% restocking fee, then we may charge up to 40% in order to do so.
