Disclaimers and Policies

TigerStop Parts Return Policy  

Standard Parts Returns:
To return your part you will need an RGA (Return Goods Authorization) Number from TigerStop’s Customer Service. You may call customer service at 360 448 6102 or email customer service at service@tigerstop.com to receive your RGA number. Please supply 1) your original order number and 2) reason for return code to speed up the return process.   

Return Reason Codes are the following:
1) I accidentally ordered the incorrect part
2) I was shipped the incorrect part
4) Warranty issue
5) TigerStop made a big mistake
6) Other- please specify

Additional RGA and Restocking Information:
Please note that RGA’s are issued at TigerStop’s sole discretion. Customer Service may need to work with you to gather more information before issuing an RGA number. TigerStop will not issue an RGA for special order parts or custom parts.

Parts less than 30 Days old:
TigerStop will gladly issue an RGA for parts ordered within the last 30 days. If the return arrives complete and in new condition, full credit will be issued for the returned part. Returns that do not arrive complete and in new condition are subject to a minimum 20% restocking fee. Zero credit may be issued for returns that are incomplete or damaged.

Parts over 30 days old:
For parts ordered in the last 6 months, TigerStop will issue an RGA so long as the parts are complete and in new condition. Please note that all parts returned over 30 days are subject to a 20% restocking fee. Zero credit will be issued for returns that are incomplete or damaged.

Packaging Your Return:
In an ideal world everyone would perfectly preserve their packaging for returns, but life isn’t always that simple. That’s why we don’t require factory original packaging for returns. Hooray!

What we do care about is receiving returns in one piece and with the RGA number written prominently on the package. Adequate packaging is critical to preventing shipping damage. Remember, the inspection determining whether credit can be issued happens after arrival at TigerStop. So, if it looks like a herd of water buffalos made their annual migration over your package, TigerStop won’t be able to accept it. (Another good rule of thumb is that circuit boards should never mix with Styrofoam.)

Who Pays for the Return?
Shipping on standard returns is the customer’s responsibility. Original shipping costs will not be credited. However, customers may be credited shipping costs on a case by case basis depending on the Return Reason Codes above.

TigerStop Returns Address:
Once your return is carefully packaged with the RGA number prominently displayed on the exterior of the package, sent it to:

TigerStop LLC
12909 NE 95th Street
Vancouver, WA
98682

Credit:
All returns are inspected for condition and completeness after arrival at TigerStop. Based on the inspection, applicable credit will be issued. If the item was purchased via credit card, return credit will be issued to the same card.

When credit can't be issued, TigerStop will do our best to contact you and explain. If we can't issue credit and you want the returned part back, we will gladly return the part at your expense. TigerStop can store returned parts for 30 days from the first contact attempt. If we can't reach you and don't hear from you by then, the parts will be scrapped.

TigerStop’s goal is to make purchasing and returning spare parts as easy as possible. Our aim is to get you up and running so that you can continue manufacturing cool products, quickly and accurately, for your growing customer base. If TigerStop made a mistake in any way, please let us know, and we will do our best to remedy the situation. We love our customers, we love what we do, and we are continuously striving to do better each day. If you have suggestions about how we can serve you best, don’t be shy! Feedback is welcomed with open paws. You may share your thoughts with service@tigerstop.com.
