Genius Tools: Shipping and Delivery
SHIPPING & DELIVERY POLICY
Free shipping is available within the lower 48 states for special promotional offers. This offer excludes shipments going to Alaska, Hawaii, Military Boxes, International, and items too large to ship via a standard carrier. These items are usually large freight or bulky items such as full widebody kits, etc.
The majority of orders containing items listed as “In Stock” will ship within 24-48 hours if placed on a weekday before 12PM PST. Orders requiring additional verification (security concerns, incorrect information, etc.) or additional processing like large pieces may need additional processing time. Items listed as “On Order” or “Out of Stock” typically ship by the estimated ship date listed on the product page. These estimated dates are not guaranteed and are subject to change periodically. Our customer service representatives monitor backorders daily to ensure your order ships as soon as possible.
The delivery time of your package primarily depends on the shipping carrier and the service level selected. When selecting the shipping method for your package, please keep in mind that most carriers do not work on weekends or major holidays. When carriers quote shipping days, they are referring to business days. Business days are defined as Monday through Friday, with the exception of holidays observed by the parcel carriers. As a general rule, transit times are as follows:
Next Day Air - Delivered within 1 Business Day
2nd Day Air - Delivered within 2 Business Days
3-Day Service - Delivered within 3 Business Days
Ground - Delivered within 3-5 Business Days
If an order is placed for a product that is labeled “On Order” or “Out of Stock”, we will keep your order in our system and ship the item as soon as it becomes available. Genius Tools USA reserves the right to split your order into multiple shipments without notification in an attempt to try and get your products to you sooner. Orders are normally only split automatically if both orders qualify for free shipping. If you wish to split your order voluntarily due to an out of stock item, please notify our customer service department and be aware that additional shipping charges may apply if both shipments do not qualify for free shipping.
Genius Tools USA ships packages all over the globe. If you would like to see an estimated cost of shipping an item(s) internationally, simply add the desired item(s) to your Shopping Cart and use the 'Calculate Shipping' feature. Please remember these shipping charges do not include any duties, customs charges, or brokerage fees that may accompany your shipment; all importation fees assessed by the shipping carrier, local or national governments are the buyer’s responsibility and will not be paid or reimbursed by Genius Tools USA. By law, Genius Tools USA is required to list all package contents at the actual purchase price. If a package is refused rather than pay any importation fees, Genius Tools USA reserves the right to deduct the cost of the return shipment, including customs clearance charges, from your product refund or abandon the package with no refund when the cost of return shipping is more than the original order. For more information about international returns, please refer to our return policies page.
APO / PO BOX SHIPMENTS
Shipments going to an APO or PO Box will default to ship via USPS as the shipping carrier. Please be aware that the United States Postal Service (USPS) has size restrictions on shipments going to APO’s and PO Boxes. If you have a large item needing to ship to a postal box please contact one of our customer service representatives to look at available options. If you choose to have your APO or PO Box shipment sent via a different carrier, we suggest verifying the delivery possibilities with that carrier before placing the order. If a package is deemed undeliverable by a carrier that cannot delivered parcels to your post office box or APO the buyer will be responsible for all freight charges and fees associated with the shipment.
BILLING / SHIPPING ADDRESSES
If you wish to have your item(s) shipped to an address other than your billing address, please be aware that your order may require additional verification and may be subject to processing delays. We recommend allowing extra time for order fulfillment when shipping to an alternate address. If you have any questions about your order verification please feel free to contact our customer service department.
DAMAGED / LOST SHIPMENT
If your shipment becomes damaged or lost in transit, please notify one of our customer service representatives immediately. Do not discard any boxes or packaging materials that were included with the shipment. In order to fully process a damage claim, all original products and packaging materials must be provided. Genius Tools USA is not liable for damage claims that are denied due to customer negligence.
STANDARD RETURN POLICY - 30 DAYS
Unless another return policy is indicated, products sold by Genius Tools USA are covered by this Standard Return Policy and may be returned within 30 days of the original invoice date for a refund if its brand new and resalable condition at the discretion of Genius Tools USA. All returns require an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) Number, and freight charges are strictly non-refundable. There is a 20% restocking fee on items that are returned that are not defective/damaged. Due to the dangerous and stressful nature of racing and performance vehicles, no returns will be accepted on opened, installed, or otherwise used products or special order items. Failure to comply with the terms stated herein, as well as those stated on the RMA form, may result in delayed return processing and/or refusal of returned packages. Items that were shipped incorrectly, have been damaged in transit, or which require warranty repair or replacement are not covered by our Standard Return Policy and must be reviewed by a member of our customer service department.
*Products purchased in a kit/combo are only eligible for return if the ENTIRE KIT/COMBO is returned at the same time. Individual items inside a kit/combo cannot be returned separately.
NON RETURNABLE - CLEARANCE ITEMS, SPECIAL ORDERS, OPEN BOX / OVERSTOCK
Genius Tools USA often sells items that are not eligible for return. These items are labeled as Open-Box, Clearance or Overstock merchandise. These items are sold at greatly-reduced prices, therefore all sales are considered final and no returns or refunds will be granted. The buyer assumes responsibility for any and all risks that may be associated with purchasing said items. While items have been tested for basic functionality, they may have superficial physical defects including (but not limited to) scratches, dings, or dents. Should any items prove defective in either quality or performance after the sale is complete, the buyer assumes responsibility for the cost of all necessary servicing or repairs and agrees to absolve both Genius Tools USA and the manufacturer from any and all responsibility, unless otherwise required by law. Open-Box, Clearance and Overstocked items are not covered by any type of 30-day warranty or satisfaction guarantee.
Genius Tools USA also sells unique or custom order items that are often times made to order and/or are considered special order items. These items are ordered in on a case by case basis. Consequently items indicated as having this Special Order Return Policy are not eligible for returns or exchanges. Special order items require a minimum of a 50% non-refundable deposit. This deposit will not be refunded if the order is cancelled unless the items that were ordered are unattainable from the manufacturer. The buyer assumes responsibility that the items ordered will fit their needs.
REFUSED / UNDELIVERABLE ORDERS
Refused or undeliverable orders that are returned to our facility will be processed like a standard return; this means all shipping costs, including return freight charges and any return-to-sender fees assessed by the shipping carrier, will be deducted from the product refund. Keep in mind that international orders which have been refused by the receiver or deemed undeliverable by the shipping carrier may be subject to duties, taxes, customs charges or brokerage fees on the return shipment. Genius Tools USA reserves the right to deduct these additional costs, in addition to all freight charges, from the product refund. If you would like to return an item it is recommended that all shipments be accepted and then sent back following our standard return process. Refusing a package has the potential to have it refused, cause delays in return shipping as well as incur additional shipping charges.
Once your return shipment has been received and approved, a refund will be processed and a credit will automatically be applied to the original form of payment. The refund will most likely appear on your credit statement within 1-5 business days, depending on your bank's processing practices. Please keep in mind that only returns which meet all RMA conditions and return policy requirements will be eligible for a refund minus applicable restocking fee of 20%. Genius Tools USA does not refund shipping charges for returned items, and orders which qualified for our Free Shipping Promotion will not receive a refund for the credited shipping charges. Any customs or duties charges incurred upon returning an international shipment will be charged to the original form of payment. Refused or undeliverable orders may also be subject to return freight fees, duties, taxes, customs charges or brokerage fees. If you have any questions regarding the refund process, please contact one of our customer service representatives.
Genius Tools USA does not offer any type of warranty coverage for defective products. However, the majority of the products available through our website are covered separately under a manufacturer's warranty. If you recently purchased a product from geniustoolsusa.com and are concerned about the fitment or performance of your item, please contact a member of our customer service department for assistance. Our customer service representatives can provide installation support, troubleshooting advice, and assistance identifying the possibility of any manufacturer defects.
