In the event there is damage do not refuse the package, instead please contact us immediately or on the next Business day so we can help you in the replacement of your order and file the proper claim with the shipper. Failure to accept the package and follow our Shipping Policy will result in charges for return shipping (plus 20% restocking fee) being applied to your account.
ThePorchSwingCompany.com is pleased offer free shipping on most products to anywhere in the contiguous U.S.! This is in addition to our everyday low prices on thousands of patio furniture products. To continue to provide such value to our customers, we need your assistance with following our shipping procedures and this starts with Shipment Refusal. Our Shipping Policy is accessible in the footer of every page of our website and is one of the terms and conditions agreed to upon checkout. You can view our Shipping Policy here.
Under no circumstance should you refuse an order that has external damage to the box or packaging. Our products are well-packaged to withstand damage during shipping. We double-box many products, and refuse to carry products that are easily damaged during shipping. Additionally, often times boxes will appear severely damaged on the outside from shipping transit, but the contents are undamaged and intact. Furthermore if a single part is damaged or hardware bag is missing, it does not require the entire order to be shipped back to us for us to quickly remedy the issue. Please view our Shipment Refusal Process below to see how your order will be handled if you elect to refuse a package.
Shipment Refusal Process
1) We will notify our warehouse to anticipate a returned refused package. A replacement order will not be shipped until the original order is received back in our warehouse.
2) Once the package is received we will inspect the box for any associated damaged or missing contents.
3) We will contact you via email to confirm if you would like a replacement order shipped and the applicable charges for your Shipment Refusal. We will also give you the option to simply return your order in accordance with our Standard Return Policy.
4) Please allow 7-10 Business days from the date of Shipment Refusal for us to process your return.
