What is your returns policy?
Please contact your local provider or internet dealer from whom you purchased the Karman product from to find out what their return policy is and how to process a return. If you purchased online, you can often find the providers policy on their respective website. You may refer to our Return Policy if you purchased directly from Karman Healthcare Inc.
Products purchased from an authorized reseller, we are unable to process returns directly since we do not have your funds. RMAs are only issued to dealers that have an active account with Karman Healthcare.
Short Shipment and Freight Damage
Claims for shortage, errors in delivery or defects apparent on individual inspection must be made in writing to Karman within five (5) calendar days after receipt of shipment. Buyer’s failure to give timely notice of the same shall constitute unqualified acceptance of such shipment.
Damages or Shortages
In an effort to reduce the potential in delaying a resolution of a damage or shortage claim, customer is required to count all receipts prior to customer’s acceptance of delivery from the carrier. Furthermore, after receipt of products, inspection to obvious damage to product, packaging and/or shortages, must be noted on the carrier’s freight bill or bill of lading (BOL) and be countersigned by the customer. The damaged products must remain in the original carton, in the event inspection is required by the transportation company.
