Returns and exchanges will not be accepted without an RMA number.

Product Delivery and Inspection
In most cases, your order is shipped in a secure frame with a box covering. It is securely packaged to prevent any damage during transit however, damages do still occasionally occur. When your order is delivered, sometimes the exterior box is damaged, but the product itself is fine. Please immediately remove the exterior box and inspect the product. If there are any damages or defects to the packaging and/or unit due to how the shipping company handled the package (such as scratched or broken body pieces), please note that on the delivery receipt (proof of delivery) and make sure that both you and the driver have a copy. Please also take pictures and email them and an explanation to email@example.com to file a claim. This claim must be emailed to us within 48 hours of delivery of your product. If your claim is approved we will ship you new parts or panels right away at no charge. Any delivered orders without notations of damages or defects on the delivery receipt means you have received and accepted your order (as is) in good condition.
If you remove the box and see that the unit is severely damaged (not just scratched or with broken body panels), please call us at 800-270-9875 to report the issue immediately. If approved, we will notify you to refuse delivery of the unit and to notate “refused due to damages” on the delivery receipt. We will process a replacement unit and ship it to you. If you refuse the shipment and do not notate “refused due to damages” on the delivery receipt and if you do not have permission to refuse from our company, then we cannot file a claim for you and you will be responsible for all shipping fees. Please understand that you must follow these guidelines in order to have your claim approved and that any requests for a damage claim without the above notation will not be approved.
Returns Due to Shipping Damages
Our products generally arrive in like-new condition, however we still ask our customers to thoroughly inspect the product upon delivery.
If there are minor damages to the packaging and/or unit (ex. cracked plastics/scuffed body panels) due to how the shipping company handled the packages, yet the unit is still usable and rideable, then buyers should accept the shipment and have the driver note all damages on the delivery receipt. Buyers must take pictures of the damage, then email the pictures and an explanation to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will file a damage claim for you and send replacement parts to you at no charge. If you reject a shipment that is in riding condition due to minor damages, you will be responsible for return shipping fees and a 25% restocking fee.
If the frame is bent or the unit is in really bad condition and not safe to ride please contact Scooter Madness customer service at 800-270-9875 while the delivery driver is still there. We will evaluate the situation and issue a RMA number if applicable. Returns without RMA numbers will be refused by our warehouse.
If you have already accepted your shipment and believe the unit is damaged beyond repair, please email pictures of the damages and an explanation to email@example.com will need to be sent in for a claim to be filed with the carrier. Filing the claim will enable the carrier to retrieve the unit for return back to our warehouse. If a claim is unable to be filed, the return will be treated as a regular return and the buyer will be responsible for return shipping fees and will incur a 25% restocking fee.
If buyer refuses delivery or if a shipment returns due to an inability to contact the buyer, the buyer will be charged the initial freight cost, return freight cost and a 25% restocking free to cover the time, labor and materials invested in preparing the shipment.
