PACKAGING RETURNS

Products cannot be accepted if their original boxes are marked, damaged, written upon, or stickers or labels of any type placed upon them. We recommend that you return them in a rigid cardboard enclosing box. Do not exceed the maximum gross weight generally printed on the bottom flap of the box. Two inches of packing material must be on ALL sides of the shipping article including the top and bottom. Machines must be secured within the box. Any loose items must be wrapped separately to avoid damage to each other or the machine. You are responsible for return of these items, so we recommend that you insure them for the value paid. If there is loss or damage during shipment, it will be your responsibility. For packing materials, use foam, bubble wrap, crumpled paper, enough to insure that the contents will not easily move. Heavy items must have very substantial packaging. All must be securely taped in strong corrugated boxes.

Use one address on the box. the RMA number must also be on the box. Include a copy of your invoice inside the box.


Credit Card Chargebacks

If you have a problem with your purchase, call us. Customers who arbitrarily initiate a credit card chargeback against The PaperFolder Co. will receive a chargeback fee in the amount of $25. This fee is to cover costs of the customer's chargeback actions. It will be invoiced to the customer along with any applicable restocking or legal fees.


Damage Claims

Any damaged items found at the time of Delivery should be refused. If you accept an item that was obviously damaged in shipment, the loss will be your responsibility.

If after receiving an item that did not have external damage, you find it to be damaged when unpacked, please call us at 800-520-6008 within 48 hours of delivery. We will determine if the damage was shipping related, and arrange for a replacement. We will contact the shipping company for instructions on how to proceed if it is shipping related. If you use the product without contacting us at the time of unpacking, we will not be responsible for the damage that should have been observed then.

A replacement order cannot be shipped until a claim has been filed with the carrier. In the event that the order was shipped via truck and the bill of lading was signed for by the customer with no indication of damage, a replacement order will not be shipped until the claim has been finalized. If a replacement order is needed before that time your credit card will be charged as a new order in order to ship the replacement order out. Once the claim has been resolved, a credit will be issued to the original invoice.

Cancelling Orders

We will try to cancel your order as quickly as possible after receiving notice from you. You will be responsible for any costs incurred up to the point where your order can be cancelled. These costs may include shipping, restocking and other fees. There are no cancellations of custom or special orders.
