Shipping & Returns
Clutch Chairz Return Policy
Returned items must be unused, in their original packaging and packed as they were when they left our warehouse. Failure to do so may result in damage to the goods rendering them unsellable. The customer is responsible for return and initial delivery charges. All returns must have a valid Return Authorization number.
Any merchandise that is refused and/or disputed with the credit card company (Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express), such as using “did not receive the merchandise” is still subject to being charged for the purchase and any additional charges that Clutch Chairz Ltd may incur due to such negligent or malicious action(s). The cardholder is committing a fraudulent act and/or misrepresentation and the credit card will be further charged to offset penalties and charges as deemed to make Clutch Chairz whole. Accordingly, the buyer will be invoiced if a credit card was not used in the order transaction. Residential delivery is subject to a “left at door” policy by the carrier and will be considered DELIVERED as per the carrier status of the shipment. Clutch Chairz can request signature for Residential Deliveries but cannot guarantee such.
An additional charge of $35.00 will be charged to the buyer should the credit card company institute a “charge-back” to Clutch Chairz and/or the original charge was deemed to be valid. Credit card companies have numerous fees and this is only to make Clutch Chairz whole, and to continue to accept credit cards as a simple form of payment for its’ customers. Should the customer/cardholder constitute additional claims the additional charges are defined below.
An additional administrative charge will be applied should the cardholder institute additional work including, but not limited to, email correspondence, credit card processing merchant’s paperwork, and any other administrative work that distracts Clutch Chairz’s personnel from their daily duties. A minimum of $50.00 for such unnecessary actions will apply. A $100.00 fee will be charged to the cardholder should the cardholder attempt to commit a theft of goods.
Clutch Chairz hopes every product you purchase meets or exceeds your expectations, but we fully understand that is not always possible and we will gladly try to work with you towards a mutually agreeable solution.
Our policy of keeping returns to the bare minimum benefits all of our customers, as these costs are always passed along to all customers eventually. We feel that our customers should not have to pay for another’s mistake, negligence, or arrogance.
Returns of UNUSED standard merchandise will be a minimum of 20% of the cost of the merchandise for restocking, less shipping and handling charges. Shipping and Handling charges will not be credited.
