All returns will need a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA#). Contact Customer Service with your Order#, how many, & part numbers for items you wish to return. The more information you can provide us, the faster your Return Authorization can be issued. Returns without an RMA# will be rejected.

The Deck Store has discontinued charging restock fees for most returned items. There may be a case where a specific manufacturer will charge a restock fee, but that is a rare occurrence.

Unused items in their original packaging, complete, & unopened can be returned for a refund. Returned items must be in re-sellable condition. Certain items may not be returned. Check the Return Policy for Non-Returnable Items, or read the next question.

The Deck Store will accept returns up to 90 days from the date of your order. Certain exceptions may apply due to backorders, shipping delays, or other setbacks. Contact Customer Service to see if that applies.

Our bank doesn't allow refunds to credit cards after 90 days. For any return that ends up taking more than 90 days, we can send you a check. If you are a DeckPerks member, we can update your points balance.
