Warranties vary by product and manufacturer. Please note warranty information included in product description where applicable.

Order Discrepancies

Shipments received short or damaged in transit

For shipments with apparent transit damage, you must make a note of the damage on the accompanying waybill at the time of receipt and the freight carrier’s driver must countersign the claim. For shipments with hidden transit damage or missing items, contact your Customer Service Representative or Territory Manager within 72 hours of receipt so a timely claim can be made with the carrier.


To initiate a return, please contact your Stevens Customer Service team or Territory Manager. Once the request to return has been granted, you will receive an RMA and return instructions.

Returns due to a Stevens error

Our standard policy is that returns should be requested within 30 days of receipt of product, however depending on the circumstances some flexibility may be granted.

Product must then be returned within 30 days of an RMA being issued or the RMA will be voided.

No temperature-controlled products can be returned. Nonetheless, we will assist in making suitable alternative arrangements to ensure the situation is remedied.

Return is required for any other reason

If your request does not meet one of the below requirements, we are happy to discuss with you. Please contact your Customer Service team or Territory Manager to see what arrangements can be made.

Credit will be granted after the product has been inspected, deemed in saleable condition, and passed any other inspection requirements deemed necessary, at the discretion of The Stevens Company.

If the returned product is rejected for credit, it will be returned at the sender's expense or disposed of at the sender's request.
