Returned Goods Policy

Alvord-Polk will replace or apply full credit to your account for any tool that does not meet advertised catalog specifications for quality. 

Alvord-Polk will not accept as a return any tool or brush that has been altered or modified from its original manufactured specifications. 

A minimum of 15% re-stocking charge will be applied to any returned standard.  This charge will be deducted from the credit that will be issued to your account. 

Alvord-Polk will not accept any return for a product that is purchased prior to one calendar year from date of request for return.  All returns must be given a RETURNED GOODS AUTHORIZATION and that can only be authorized by the Quality Assurance Manager, Customer Service Manager or President. 

Alvord-Polk reserves the right to decline any return if the quantity desired to be returned cannot be reasonably re-sold with the next calendar year.
