Unbound Solar and Unbound Solar vendors carefully inspect all shipments. Customers must inspect their shipments upon delivery, prior to signing the release, and document any discrepancies or damage to the shipment on the freight carrier delivery note.
Customers who will not be signing for their order when it is delivered are responsible to see that the person signing has read and understands Unbound Solar’s Terms and Conditions. Unbound Solar is not responsible for delays due to carrier exceptions.
You or your receiving agent MUST check your order upon receipt for accuracy and possible concealed damage and notify Unbound of any discrepancies within 24 hours. Undiscovered damage claims not noted on the delivery receipt cannot be made with a carrier or Unbound Solar. NO EXCEPTIONS! When shipped, Unbound Solar ensures proper packaging and takes pictures of each outbound shipment. Protect your investment! It is your responsibility to check your shipment. Your signature on a shipping receipt is a legal release of claim for damage unless noted within 24 hours of receipt.
An independent shipping contractor such as UPS, FedEx or a commercial trucking company will deliver the order. When the shipment arrives, the driver will ask you to sign for the delivery. This is a legal document stating that the package is being delivered in good condition without damage and that the customer is waiving any additional claim from the shipper. Before signing, inspect the package(s) closely on all six sides. Note any box damage including scuffs, dents, tears, punctures or creases on the delivery receipt. If there is anything unusual with the package, the customer has the right to open it to inspect the contents. If the driver is unwilling to wait while you inspect all of the items, you may mark on the delivery receipt “Concealed Damage Possible”.
If there is damage to the shipment, you must choose to accept the shipment with damage noted/documented or refuse the package and contact Unbound Solar immediately.
To cancel your order, contact Customer Support during normal business hours. Provided your order has not yet been processed, and your payment has not been processed, no fees will be applied. Processed orders will have a 5% cancellation fee deducted from your
refund within the first 30 days. If any portion of your order has shipped, a 15% restocking fee will be deducted from your refund. The refund will occur within 5 business days of the receipt of the cancellation or the return of all shipped products.
Some products offered by Unbound Solar are custom built or special ordered. These items include but are not limited to: power centers, battery enclosures, and custom racking systems. Cancellation of these items will result in a cancellation fee, even if the item has not shipped. The cancellation fee will vary depending on the manufacturer. Certain products, such as Outback Power Pre-Wired Power Stations, are non-refundable, due to the manufacturer cancellation fees. If a discount was applied to an order for a non refundable product, the discount amount will be deducted from the refund. For example, if your order included a free shipping discount, the shipping fees would be deducted from the refundable amount.
Merchandise, except for products identified as non-refundable, may be returned within 30 days of the receipt of the product. Returns are subject to a standard restocking fee. Prior to returning items, it is necessary to obtain an RMA # (Return Merchandise Authorization Number) for your return. Contact Customer service to request an RMA. Once you have received your RMA # and return instructions, you are responsible for shipping, including shipping costs, to return the merchandise to Unbound Solar. RMA numbers are valid for 30 days from the date issued and items must be received in that timeframe. Please reference this number in a clear location on the outside of the package and any documents included in the shipment when returning product. The Customer shall be responsible for the return of any unused product and agrees to use only reputable carriers capable of providing proof of delivery and insurance for the value of the shipment. Returned material must be received in new and resalable condition with the original blank warranty cards, manuals, and all accessories. If any component of the RMA is missing or not in new condition, Unbound Solar may reject the return or choose to impose additional charges for replacement of any missing or damaged component(s).
