Summit RC will repair or replace the item at our discretion based on standard practices that each manufacturer sets forth.

As a courtesy to the customer, if, within 30 days of purchase, a warrantied problem is encountered after the item is put into service and has been subject to normal use, we will contact the manufacturer on your behalf and do our best to resolve the problem. We will not simply replace the item as the manufacturer may choose to repair your item and return it to us. After 30 days from the date of invoice or in instances where the item has been misused or modified in any way other than that intended by the original manufacturer you will need to contact them directly for warranty service.

Before Shipping back return item:
If you want to return something, please do not mark on, or damage the product packaging in any way, the item must be in new, resalable condition. We protect all shipments with additional packaging when shipping to you, we ask for the same courtesy in return. It is amazing how many people just throw a label or scrawl an address on the product itself to return it and expect to get a refund! It would not be credited with a full refund as chances are we would have to sell it at 'scratch and dent' prices.
If, by error, we have sent you a product which was not what you had ordered, we will be happy to replace the item for you. Please email our customer service department for authorization and return instructions. Again, the item being returned must be in new, unused condition, in the original packaging. Do not use a product if it is not what you had ordered unless you intend to keep the product anyway. We will not accept used merchandise for return and we will not accept packages sent to us COD.
If the return is an item that we shipped to you incorrectly we will credit you with the cost of shipping the returned item. For all other returns, return shipping will be borne by the sender.
Once gift cards have been purchased, they may not be returned for cash. The value of the card must be applied to the purchase of a product.
Any product that is purchased with a gift card and subsequently returned, the refund will be issued by the same means as it was originally paid. If some of the purchase was paid by gift card, the same amount will be reapplied to the gift card.
Purchases Using Coupon/Promo Code Discounts
Please be advised, returning a product that was purchased with a promo code discount may result in a reduction of the amount of discount that applies to the original order. The amount of credit applied or refund issued may be adjusted to reflect this lesser discount earned on that order.
We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
