Engine Powered Equipment cannot be returned once gas or oil has been added to the engine due to federal shipping regulations.  If you have added gas or oil to the engine you will need to take the item to an authorized service center for repairs which may be covered under warranty.  We encourage you to locate an authorized warranty repair center in your area.

Installed Pumps & Used or Installed Items

Pumps that have been installed and any used items cannot be returned for a refund.  All used items and pumps that have been installed will be covered under warranty only, as issued by the manufacturer or APW Distributing, Inc.  Please contact us to assist with items that are believed to be defective.  In some cases, we may be able to prevent the need for a return and/or address the issue over the phone or via email.   Some warranty items may be covered directly by the original manufacturer.  In these cases, we will contact the manufacturer to start the warranty process for you.  Please do not contact the product manufacturer directly, as we will need to initiate the process for any warranty related situations.  Also, please allow an additional business day for specific manufacturer RMA instructions to be provided in order to ensure proper processing.

 

WARRANTY COVERAGE

All items sold by APW Distributing, Inc. carry a warranty, either issued by the manufacturer of the item or by APW Distributing, Inc.  All warranties are limited, and warranty timeframes may vary per item. Warranties cover repair or replacement of the approved warranty item, subject to manufacturer suggested actions.  The customer is responsible for all transportation and shipping charges associated with warranty repairs or replacements.  Refunds are not given in lieu of product repair or replacement.  Please refer to the item for warranty coverage information.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING

During the holidays, shipping services hit their busiest time of the year.  Although they strive for a 100% delivery guarentee, it is nearly impossible to do.  Please keep in mind, that during the holidays most shipping carriers suspend their delivery guarantees.  In order to ensure your item is delivered on time, please allow up to 1 week additional shipping and handling time.  Outside of the holiday, we may have additional days that we are closed.  We will try to put a notice on our homepage of any closures around the holiday.  We try to get orders out the same day they are places, but we do ask that you allow 1-2 business days for us to process and ship your order.  If you have any questions about our shipping serices' holiday delivery guidlines and closures, you can visit their websites at ups.com and usps.com
