SHIPPING - SHORT VERSION
To return your product, you will need to contact Customer Service for an RMA# then mail your product to: EcomAutomotive, Inc. dba Tuff Stuff 4x4, Tuff Stuff Overland, 2205 South Wright Street, Santa Ana CA 92705, United States
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.
If you are shipping an item over $50, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
SHIPPING - LONG VERSION
Items less than $50 will not have "free" shipping. We will charge a minimum of $10 to cover some of our shipping costs. This is fair. If we don't charge something we lose money and cannot offer certain low dollar items.
Small items (under 150 pounds) will be shipped by ground service or express service (if requested).
Larger items will be shipped by truck freight (LTL). Truck freight is tailgate only. You must have someone available to inspect and unload the freight item.
LTL – Very Important
If the condition of your package is questionable, at all, refuse the freight item and immediately contact our Customer Service Department toll-free at 1.866.220.0171.
DO NOT SIGN for the item. The driver may indicate that you have to sign and take the item regardless of damage, but rest assure you do not. In fact, most manufacturers will hold you responsible for what they call "concealed" damage. Meaning, everything looks fine with the outer packaging, then you open your precious to find it damaged! Don't let it happen to you. Always thoroughly inspect the actual item then sign.
We do not ship C.O.D. orders to a P.O. Box, APO, or FPO.
All orders must have complete shipping address and phone number. We don't sell this information. But we might need it if there is a question or issue with your order. If we don't have a valid address and phone number your order will be delayed if an issue comes up.
Special orders & truck shipments can take approximately 2 to 6 weeks depending on the items.
All international orders require payment in advance. Due to various rate differences and depending on which items are ordered, freight fees will vary. It is important that you contact our Sales Department regarding all international orders. All international orders must have a phone number. We have no control over value-added taxes or duty charges. These are the responsibility of the customer. All international sales are final. We accept no backorders or returns on international orders.
All shipments should be inspected at the time of delivery. Damaged packages should be refused immediately; no claims can be filed after 3 days of delivery. Not our rule, this is how UPS and FedEx roll.
If your damaged shipment was delivered by UPS, please call 800-PICK-UPS and report the damage.
If your damaged shipment was delivered by Truck Freight, please contact the freight carrier at the phone number on the carrier's bill.
After contacting the carrier, please call our Customer Service toll-free at 1.866.220.0171. We have no control over the shipper but we will do everything in our power to help facilitate the process. And trust us, it's a process if an item gets damaged in transit. The quicker you take action (call the shipper, take pictures, call us) the quicker the claim will be resolved.
Returning Items Damaged in Transit
If you receive a damaged package, you should refuse delivery. If the item is left on your porch contact customer service toll-free at 1.866.220.0171 or firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 days. If you refuse delivery, the order will be returned to us. If you contact customer service, we will help you file a damage claim with the carrier.
Regarding damage claims:
Please be prepared to describe the damage and provide photographs
Keep the package and parts in the same condition as they arrived
The carrier may request a physical inspection of the package but this should be rare since you already know to inspect the item before you sign for it

All carrier damage claims must be filed within 3 days of receiving the products
