Returns & Exchanges
If you would like to exchange or return an item that you have received in the last 5 business days, you will need to request a Return Authorization. All Paint Products, Furniture, Custom Orders and certain manufacturers are not eligible for return or exchange - Please see below for more information. After submitting your return request, we will review the information and forward via email instructions for returning the item(s). This Return Authorization is valid for 15 days. Please do not return items to our Goldsboro, North Carolina address without prior authorization as some returns may have to be shipped back directly to our suppliers. Please contact us with any questions on whether or not the item you are interested in is a returnable item.
Please note that items shipped back to us without a return authorization will not be accepted and will be returned to you. All items must be returned in their original, unworn and unused condition enclosed in original packaging or similar quality packaging within 15 days for a refund or exchange. Returned items should be free from dirt and debris. In the event an item is returned in a condition where it can not be resold, you will be asked to have the product picked up at your expense. If not picked up within 15 days of Carolina Pine Country Store's inspection, item will be destroyed in field or given to charity. Shipping fees are non-refundable. We offer free shipping on several of our items. If for any reason you need to return an item with free shipping, the refund you receive will be for the item price minus the standard shipping cost. Standard shipping costs are based on item prices as outlined within our shipping above. If you opt to exchange your free shipping purchase for another item that also had free shipping, a standard shipping charge will be added to cover our costs.
Furniture, Lighting, and Custom Items
All Furniture and Custom Order Sales are Final. If you are at all uncertain if what you are ordering is considered custom, please contact us to verify. You have up to 24 hours from the date the order was placed to cancel a custom order and to have the amount refunded to your credit card. After 24 hours custom orders are non-refundable. Upon delivery, please take time to inspect all freight shipped furniture items carefully for any damage that may have occurred in transit and contact us immediately. Claims against damaged items must be made within 3 business days. ALL PACKAGING MUST BE KEPT for photos. Discarding of packaging voids our opportunity to file a claim and inhibits our ability to have the item(s) picked back up.
Unfortunately, claims made after the 3 business day window will not be accepted and are unable to be returned. Please refer to our vendor warranties for specific information on individual policies.
If for any reason your custom furniture piece does not arrive with the specifications that you selected when ordering, Carolina Pine Country Store reserves the right to have the item or items replaced and reshipped at no additional charge to you. You should contact us immediately if this occurs so that we can get the replacement in the works as soon as possible. While the manufacturers do their best to ensure excellent packaging; occasionally glass and mirror could get damaged at the hands of a delivery carrier in transit. Items received with broken glass ARE NOT considered defective products. Carolina Pine Country Store and the manufacturer reserve the right to replace the glass or mirror as quickly as possible. In these cases, you can contact our customer service department to request replacement glass to be sent to you at no additional cost.
Carolina Pine Country Store does everything possible to assure a smooth and prompt delivery of your items. However, be aware and consider that there are circumstances out of our control that may arise and result in a delay in the production or delivery of your items. We do our best to give accurate lead times for each manufacturer but estimated lead times are not a guarantee of a specific delivery date. We welcome your inquiries as the estimated delivery time approaches and we can follow up to give you a more specific idea of your ship date at that time. Also note that shipping time for freight items is approximately 7-15 business days from the time that the item(s) are scheduled for pickup from our manufacturer.
