Return Procedure

Return Procedures

A completed online RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) Request Form must be received by CarAudioGiants.com before CarAudioGiants.com will accept any product returns.

* In order to return a product to Car Audio Giants, an installation receipt will be required. (All items must be professionally installed)

CarAudioGiants.com implements a 30-day return policy. This policy applies only to defective items that are not covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty. Customers should research the features, specifications and technology of any items listed for sale by CarAudioGiants.com before making a purchase, as it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the accuracy of their product choices. All sales are final.

How to request for RMA number
The first step is to submit a completed online RMA Request Form.  This will enable the issuance of a valid RMA number. No returns will be accepted without a valid RMA number and a installation receipt; there are no exceptions. An RMA number is valid for 30 days after the day it is issued and must be received by CarAudioGiants.com within 30 days from the date of the original invoice.

You can initiate a RMA claim here:

When filling out the RMA Request Form, indicate if any package remains unopened. If a RMA Request Form indicates the package has been unopened, and it is later found out that the package has been opened or tampered with, CarAudioGiants.com will implement a minimum restocking charge of 50% of the original purchase price. All Subwoofer boxes are not returnable.
Make sure that the RMA number is clearly visible on the shipping label that is affixed to the outside of the box of your return shipment. Do not mark the box in any other way, as additional box markings can result in additional charges.
All returns must be received in their complete resalable and original condition. All boxes, packing materials, manuals, cables, software and accessories must be intact and in original condition. We reserve the right to refuse any product returns that do not conform to these standards.
CarAudioGiants.com cannot be held liable for any loss, damage or stolen packages; therefore, it is highly recommended to use a carrier that provides freight insurance and delivery tracking services.

 

Shipping and handling charges for all returned items are the responsibility of the customer.
Refused Shipments and Unauthorized Returns

CarAudioGiants.com will not accept returns that are not accompanied by a valid Return Merchandise Authorization number. These returns will be refused and returned to the sender. The customer will be assessed a 20% restocking fee plus shipping and handling charges if a merchandise shipment is refused by the customer. Additional charges will be assessed if merchandise returned to CarAudioGiants.com is not in the exact condition that it was in when it was originally shipped to the customer. Items must be unopened and have all packaging materials intact.

If the customer would like to avoid delays and extra charges in regards to unwanted shipments, the customer must accept delivery of the product and afterwards complete an online RMA Request Form. This procedure will allow your account credit to be expedited if your return is valid according to the CarAudioGiants.com return policy. Refused shipments will complicate this process and could cause delays in order resolution. These delays can take up to several weeks. Your credit request will not be processed until we receive the returned product back and said product is inspected by our Returns Department.
