Return & Exchange Policy
At EcoSmart Inc, we invest significant resources to safeguard our items during transit.

Their primary goal is to support you through the process and to find a speedy resolution to the issue you’ve reported. Many diverse scenarios exist, so the solutions we provide are designed to meet your needs and to accommodate the requests of you or your customer. A full no cost exchange is not always guaranteed. Any items approved for an exchange or return will be issued a Return Authorization (RA) Number. This number is in addition to the Case Reference Number.
- 7.2 Your Customer Support Representative will walk you through the process for shipping the item(s) back and will enlist the support of our Shipping Department to ensure a speedy return takes place.
- 7.3 Items to be returned to EcoSmart Inc (regardless of reason) will ship via the same method, and likely the same carrier, as the original delivery. For this reason, it is vital the original packaging is retained. In the event there is no original packaging, replacement packaging may need to be sent at your cost, to be deducted from any credits or exchanges. Shipping packaging is costly and also slows down the completion of your return.
- 7.4 Items returned in a condition of lesser quality than when the Return Authorization was provided, will be subject to charges to either repair or replace the item in full.
- 7.5 Credit notes, refunds or release of replacement items will be issued after the receipt and full inspection of the returned item. Inspection will be completed within 7 business days of receipt.
