- Product Warranties
- Returns & Replacements
- For all returns and/or replacements, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to speak with a customer service representative.
- For boat covers, bimini tops, canopies, and other products manufactured by Carver Industries:
We would like for the following information to be sent with your initial RMA request:
1.) Customer P.O and Name.
2.) Issue with the product (ex. Cover too short, bimini top to wide)
3.) If available the boat information, (not necessary but helpful in determining why the product was too small, too big, etc).
4. ) Pictures – We would like to have a picture of the cover on the boat and a picture of the boat without the cover. In a lot of cases, we avoid a return simply because the cover has been installed backwards.
Email to: email@example.com
Return Period on new Products
We have a 30 day return policy. If for any reason the customer does not like or want the product it can be returned within 30 days of receipt. The return may be subject to restocking fees, explained below.
Non-returnable Products: Sunbrella Boat Covers, Special Orders, Modified Covers and Tops by customer request, Custom Boat Covers, Stainless Steel bimini tops and orders that exceed the 30 day return policy.
Call Tags/RS Labels/ Fees/Return Freight
Call Tags and/or RS labels – will be issued to pick up any product that is a Carver defect, application guide error or production mistake. We prefer to send RS Label – Return Label. The RS label is mailed to the customer, which eliminated the need for the customer to be home for the Call Tag. Once the RS label is received the customer can drop the package off at any UPS location or Call UPS for the pick up.
If the reason for the return is not a Carver mistake, we will ask the customer to return the product or we will charge for the RS label/Call Tag.
Fees – includes modifications, cancellations and restocking
Modification Fee – this fee is determined by the amount of work needed to alter a cover or top. In most circumstances this fee will not exceed $50.00.
Cancellation Fee – We believe a $25.00 cancellation is fair. A cancellation fee will only apply if the product has been made. An order must be cancelled w/n the first 24 hours of receipt of order.
Restocking Fee – will be charged on orders that were not a Carver mistake. The set restocking fee is 25 %. This fee can be reduced or waived if circumstances deem it acceptable.
