45-day Hassle-Free Return & Exchange Policy

We want you to be happy with your new purchase. If you buy something and don't like it, you can return or exchange your product for free (no return shipping fee and no restocking fee for items less than $1,500). It's that easy.

Some exclusions apply, see below:

  • You must have the original packaging. In some cases, the shipper may offer to remove the packaging from the premises, especially for White Glove / assembly services. If you think you might want to return the item, make sure you hold on to all packaging. If the shipper leaves with the packaging, the order cannot be returned.
  • The product must be in new and unused condition. We understand office chairs will be sat in, but we cannot accept returns for items with visible wear.
  • The return must be initiated within 45 days of receiving the order.
  • Orders of $1,500 or more (excluding in-stock office chairs - those can be returned for free) will receive a refund less the restocking fee of 18%.
  • Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico will receive a refund less shipping costs.

How will my order ship?

Our shipping department works closely with our delivery companies to ensure that your products get to you in the quickest, safest and most reliable method possible. Primarily, our smaller products will ship to you via UPS Ground or Fedex. Large or fragile items going to addresses be shipped by a large, commercial truck. Truck shipments typically include day and time specific delivery appointments. Customers must be present to receive truck orders and sign acknowledging receipt.

What does a product labeled “Quick Ship” mean?

Quick Ship items are either in stock at our warehouse, or they are in stock at the vendor's warehouse and ready to ship. Items that are not listed as quick ship will have to be manufactured or re-stocked, and this can take a few weeks. Our quick ship items are ready to ship out the same day or within a few days of the order being placed.

Can I change my shipping service?

Please ensure you select any shipping upgrades at checkout. If you need to change the shipping service after your order has been placed, we can’t always make revisions after 48 hours. If you do need to change your shipping service, please call us at (866) 511-0534. Any difference in shipping cost will be applied.

What do I do if part of my order is missing or was damaged during transit?

How can I track my order?

Many of our carriers (such as USPS and Fedex) can be tracked using Route. Their online tracking services are awesome, and tracking can be accessed on the web, in the Route app, or by receiving updates via text message. With Route, we automatically send you real-time shipping updates so you can track your order until it delivers. If the carrier is not supported by Route, you will receive an email from our shipping team with more information on how to track your order.

How do I cancel or change an order?

To request cancellation of your order, please contact us here.

In most cases, we are unable to make changes to your existing order once it has been placed. If you need to change colors or features, we will need to cancel your existing order, and you can re-order the correct item online or with a sales representative over the phone. Please note this may result in delays with your current shipping timeline.
