Damage that occurs during shipment is considered a warranty issue. If damage occurs to your item(s) during transport you must take clear photos of the condition of the box prior to opening. If the light(s) or components thereof are damaged, you are to supply clear photos of all damage via email to email@example.com. If multiple lights are damaged, you must label your photos so that they clearly demonstrate the damage inflicted on each individual unit. Hydro Grow will then contact the shipping company on your behalf, who may or may not contact you, may or may not schedule an appointment to view the merchandise, and may or may not pickup said merchandise from you. If the shipping company needs to view the merchandise, you will make yourself available to them within 7 days of receiving the merchandise so they can inspect the damage. If the shipping company is to pickup the merchandise from you, Hydro Grow will inform you of this prior to their arrival. If you have not been informed by Hydro Grow that the shipping company will pick up your light(s), you are not to turn them over to the shipping company in any instance.
If damage occurs to your item(s) during transport that is deemed by Hydro Grow to be repairable, replacement parts will be shipped to the customer for installation by the customer. If the customer is unable or unwilling to replace the parts themselves, they may ship the product both directions (to and from) Hydro Grow at their expense and peril. A return label must be included in each box with each light for it to be returned back to the customer by Hydro Grow, as we will not be liable for any additional damages that arise during transport as a result of the unwillingness or inability of a customer to repair their own fixture. A $75 fee per fixture will apply to any repair work performed by Hydro Grow employees due to unwillingness or inability of the customer to perform such repairs. If the light(s) receive additional damage during their return to Hydro Grow for repair, the customer will be responsible for the cost to repair any additional damage and/or processing of any claims via the shipping company for the additional damage. If damage occurs to the light(s) again in transit to the customer after being repaired, the customer is liable for the damages and must purchase replacement parts to be installed by a local handyman at their expense if they are unwilling to perform additional repairs themselves. There are no exceptions to this policy.
If damage occurs to your item(s) during transport that is deemed by Hydro Grow to be unrepairable, a return shipping label will be sent to you, or the package will be picked up by the shipping company and returned to Hydro Grow. A replacement of the same model will then be sent to you at the earliest availability after receipt of the damaged item(s).
Small scratches, dents, dings and other minor imperfections as deemed by Hydro Grow, do not constitute as "unrepairable" damage.
