It is our hope that you are completely satisfied with the products you receive from A1 American. However, we understand that returning of product(s) is sometimes necessary. For this reason, we have established a return policy that is fair to both our customers and our company. Upon purchasing of our products, customers agree to A1 American's return policy.
Return Policy During COVID-19
Due to high demand, limited availability and fluctuating costs and prices, all PPE products are non-returnable. PPE considered products include but are not limited to masks, shields, gloves, hand sanitizers, wipes, spray systems, disinfectants, gowns and thermometers.
Due to the ever-changing circumstances regarding COVID-19, we are finding many of our customers are either reducing their hours of operation, changing their delivery address, or closing all together. For this reason, we are asking you to comply with the following ordering and delivery instructions.
- When placing an order, please allow for order processing and delivery times that may be a few days longer than normal.
- If you place an order, please have your facility prepared and staffed to receive the order.
- If you want products shipped to a different address than usual, please make this change clear when placing your order.
- In some cases, you may be able to request a delivery appointment which will give you a window of time for delivery. This will allow our shipping partners to hold and deliver your order at your convenience.
- For LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipments, please verify the piece count at the time of delivery and note any discrepancy and damage on the delivery receipt before signing.
- If we put these above-mentioned instructions in place, we should be able to have a smooth order and delivery experience. However, if the product you ordered must be returned due to last minute cancellation or inability to receive the product, we will have to charge our customers for the initial and return shipping charges. We will waive any restocking fees
This policy will go into effect with orders received by A1 American starting January 1, 2021.
If you have recently placed an order and wish to cancel or feel there may be a delivery problem, please call our offices ASAP to make the appropriate changes.
