Your RMA number must be clearly marked outside the package containing your returned ChilLED Tech Product. In most cases, ChilLED Tech will provide the accompanying RMA number on the return shipping label.
RETURNING A CHILLED TECH PRODUCT WITHOUT AN RMA NUMBER WAIVES ALL OF CHILLED TECH’S RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER THE LIMITED WARRANTY, EVEN IF PROOF OF DELIVERY IS AVAILABLE, DUE TO OUR INABILITY TO MATCH YOUR PURCHASE WITH THE RETURNED CHILLED TECH PRODUCT – SO, IF YOU SEND US A PACKAGE WITHOUT THE RMA NUMBER CLEARLY MARKED ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE PACKAGE, YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE WILL REFUSE DELIVERY AND IT WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU AT YOUR COST.
For warranty claims that require disbursement of select replacement components, ChilLED Tech will first issue a shipment of the properly determined replacement component(s) and quantities.

For customers residing in Hawaii or Alaska, shipping and insurance costs will be borne by the customer, and for customers residing internationally, shipping, insurance and importing costs to be borne by the customer. ChilLED Tech will take reasonable measures on international shipments to claim to the appropriate customs authority that the contents on the warranty replacement components are such and that customs fees should be waived. However, this effort does not guarantee that no import fees will be due upon delivery.
For most warranty replacements in the contiguous United States, a pre-paid return shipping label will be included in the contents of the replacement components package. Once the customer receives the replacement components and installs them on the ChilLED Tech Product they are responsible for packaging and shipping the faulty components back to ChilLED Tech’s facility using the provided return shipping label. Failure to return faulty components in a timely manner using the provided pre-paid return shipping label will result in the customer being barred from making any further purchases from ChilLED Tech or receive any further warranty services.
For warranty claims that extend to the full servicing of a ChilLED Tech Product, customer will need to have retained the original Product packaging in order to receive warranty service. If the original packaging has been disposed of, the customer will need to pay shipping charges for new product packaging to be shipped to the customer.
Customers residing outside of the contiguous United States shipping components or full Products back to ChilLED Tech’s facility must use an insured carrier service with a tracking number with shipping charges pre-paid. You must comply with all insurance requirements (including proper packaging) and we shall not be responsible for any damage occurring during return shipment. Please provide us with return information when available.
