Green Iron Road Wear expends significant effort and cost to ensure orders are secure and properly packaged. However, GIRW will not be liable for packages that are mishandled, delayed, damaged, lost, stolen, delivered to the wrong address, or any other number of problems that can arise during shipping.
During the checkout processes, GIRW provides customers with an opportunity to select their preferred shipping method: First Class with no shipping insurance, Priority with up to $50 insurance, and Priority with Full Order insurance (up to the full value of the order, excluding shipping).
Any packages that are mishandled, damaged, lost, stolen or any other shipping problem are the responsibility of the customer to file and handle with the carrier. We regret this situation, but GIRW is not liable for problems incurred by the carrier, location, weather, customs, country, or etc.
In almost all cases all return and replacement shipping will be paid by the buyer. If Green Iron Road Wear covers or waives any shipping fee, it does so at its own discretion and such decisions do not affect other claims.
Returns or refunds may be available if the item has not been used or worn and:
- If an item was mistakenly purchased but a shipping label has not yet been purchased, a full refund is possible. Otherwise, a refund less the shipping fee will be issued. This does not apply to custom commissions. No refund will be issued for custom commissions once work has begun.
- If an item was mistakenly purchased and it has been shipped, the buyer will be responsible for return shipping and up-to a 25% restocking fee. A refund will not be issued if the item is not returned or has been used/damaged by the buyer in any way.
- If the item received by the buyer has a serious defect in its construction that was is not part of the original design or very negatively impacts the use/function of the item. The buyer will need to clearly provide evidence. All items are hand made and as such, very minor defects are normal.
- If GIRW overcharged, a refund may be offered. Note, this refund processing is completely out of the hands of GIRW and will vary based upon Square, Paypal, and/or the customer’s banking/credit card company. It is advised to expect at least 2 to 7 business days for all the various institutions to complete their processing.
Returns may also be available if the buyer purchased the wrong size of an item, though the buyer will be responsible for all additional shipping for the exchange. The exchanged item will not be shipped until the previous item is returned. The exchange will be declined and no refund issued if the returned item has been used/damaged by the buyer in any way.
Returns are not accepted for the following:
- Custom commissions or if the buyer provided incorrect measurements or instructions. Minor adjustments may be available but further fees may need to be negotiated.
- The defect was visible in store pictures.
- The item was sold at a discount due to known defects.
- The item was misused by the buyer.
- The item was damaged in shipping. The buyer will need to file a claim with the shipping agency, if the buyer purchased shipping insurance. See our Policy for Shipping, Insurance, Loss, Theft, & Claims for further details.
- The item shows signs of wear or use by the buyer.
All international orders and shipping (outside of the United States), is limited to countries that provide USPS Delivery Confirmation. An up-to-date list of those countries are found on USPS’s website. Our sincerest apologies if you live in a country not on this list. We hope we can expand this list soon.
At this time the following are the countries that GIRW will sell and ship to:
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Republic of, Singapore, Slovak Republic (Slovakia), Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, United States of America (and Minor Outlying Islands), and Vietnam,
Items listed on “Backorder” or “Available for Backorder” mean that we have all the supplies to make the item, but do not have the item currently completed and available for immediate shipment.
Shipping for an order containing a “backorderd” item will only be delayed by a few days (generally a week or less) and customers will not need to wait weeks or even months. Obviously, ordering a number of “backordered” items will increase the time to ship.
Green Iron Road Wear makes every effort to provide high quality, accurate workmanship. However, since all items are hand made and many are purposefully made with used, surplus, or old/worn materials, all items are sold “As-Is”.
Still, we at Green Iron Road Wear love our customers and want them to be satisfied with their purchase. Please Contact Us if you have any other questions or if you have a problem with any item or order.
While GIRW often uses heavy gauge rings, buckles or webbing, no items created by GIRW are meant to be used as, or in place of, actual rated safety products. Nor should any items, straps, hardware, or etc be used as load securing, supporting, or life safety devices.
All items should not be used other than their original intent.
Green Iron Road Wear nor any of its employees assume any liability for the use or misuse of any of its products.
Items sold at a discount, or listed in the “Salvage Bin” of the GIRW web store are discounted because of a material, color, or a construction defect. The quantities and availability are very limited. “Salvage Bin” items are sold AS IS. Under no conditions will refunds or returns be accepted for these items.
Green Iron Road Wear wholly reserves the right to refuse service and custom commissions for any reason, and at the minimum, on the following grounds:
- If GIRW is closed for custom work.
- Existing known, or reported, poor business history such as fraud, attempted fraud, lying, theft, attempted theft, charge backs, late/delayed payments, or similar.
- Graphic, pornographic, sexual, explicit, suggestive, defamatory, or derogatory language imagery or material.
- Extremist political or religious ideologies (defined as terrorist groups, their close associations and sympathizers).
- Work that violates our own personal religious and moral liberties.
Green Iron Road Wear does not, and will not, discriminate on the basis of race, national origin (ancestry), religion, creed, sex, sexual preference, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, marital status, non-extremist political views or associations, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, suppliers, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.
To maintain safety, privacy, and security, all news post comments and product reviews require approval before they are publicly visible.
Poor reviews from unsatisfied customers are not grounds for not approving a review. We at GIRW value honesty and integrity and we thank our customers for taking the time to help us improve our products and inform other customers.
