Delivery & Returns
How Do I Return An Item?
You can return any item within 30 days of receipt for a refund of that item or to exchange it for the same item in a different make/model, as long as you meet the following conditions.
Unless damaged or defective, we accept the return of items only if they are unopened (except in cases where the item has to be tried for fit) and in their original condition (including packaging)
If an item has been ordered in error a 15% re stocking charge will apply. This will be deducted from the cost of the refund to cover administration and postage charges.
You must obtain a Northern Arb Supplies Returns Authorization Number (RMA) by logging into your account and visiting the My Orders section and submitting a Return Request before sending items back to us. When your returns authorization has been approved you will receive full instructions by email along with a unique returns number (RMA). Please note that we reserve the right to send back items to you that have been returned to us after 30 days or that do not comply with the returns criteria detailed above.
