Specific Refund Situations
In the event of a refund where you have made an error or wish to return an unused item:
If you have made an error or want to return an unused item:
Merchandise may only be returned by contacting our customer service department and receiving a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA#). Please contact us expressing your intent to return items within five business days of receipt of your merchandise. We must physically receive your returned item(s) within thirty business days of your receipt of them in order for us to know that the items are being returned in a timely fashion so that we do not reorder these items from our vendors which will result in an undesirable surplus of stock for Grand Brass Lamp Parts.
Because Grand Brass Lamp Parts must use employee resources to process refunds, certain Department of Transport regulations may prevent us from reusing the packaging used to ship your returned products, credit card transaction fees are incurred, and other expenses are incurred, Grand Brass Lamp Parts cannot offer returns free of charge and all returns conducted under the above circumstances will incur the greater of a $5 processing fee or 20% restocking fee.
We do not refund any shipping or handling fees on returning merchandise.
If an item arrives damaged:
Do not refuse the package. Contact us immediately by calling (212) 226-2567. An invoice is on the outside of the box or has been emailed to you—please have this invoice available when you call us.
You agree to hold us harmless for loss or damage of the goods caused by the freight company or companies which transported such goods. We will, however, be happy to assist you with your claim process.
You must contact us within five business days of receipt of the items to make a claim with the shipping company. Packages are insured during transit. Products are not insured against damage at your home, shop, or on a job site. If you call after five days of receiving the goods and say you never opened the box and checked the items, we will nonetheless refuse the claim. The shipping company has no way of knowing how that box was handled after you received it and cannot make such a determination. You agree to open the box and check your goods within the required timeframe and that you waive your right to a refund for damage, missing items, or other losses if you do not do so.
Please save the box and internal packaging for ten days. The shipping company will occasionally ask for the broken item and packaging for inspection.
We normally ship orders within one to three business days of receiving your order and payment. During holiday seasons, the time it takes to ship orders will increase based on our business hours. We ship most orders via standard UPS ground or US Postal Service Priority Mail. We can also ship other carriers if prior arrangements are made. Long tubing and large items may incur extra packing fees or oversized item shipping charges. Your order will be packed by an experienced person and we will make every effort to see that you receive it in good condition, but you agree to release us from liability for damage which occurs after a carrier has received it from us. In the event that a carrier does damage your merchandise please contact us immediately and we will assist you in handling your claim. Please save the box and packaging material for inspection by the carrier.
Special provisions for international shipments: If you receive an article that was sent from abroad that is damaged and or has some contents missing, you must take it to any Post Office™ right away. Be sure to bring the item, the mailing container, wrapping, packaging, and any other contents. The Post Office will verify the damage and have you complete a claim form. The package may have to be returned to its country of origin to complete this claim. We will not accept claims after five days of receiving your order.
Where a User conducts a chargeback against Grand Brass Lamp Parts, such User shall be liable to Grand Brass Lamp Parts for the full amount of the chargeback as well as any reasonable attorneys’ fees, collection agency fees, court costs, disbursements, and other expenses incurred by Grand Brass Lamp Parts in its enforcement of its rights under this section.

THE PROVISION OF OUR SERVICE TO YOU IS CONTINGENT ON YOUR AGREEMENT WITH THIS AND ALL OTHER SECTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. NOTHING IN THE PROVISIONS OF THIS “REPRESENTATIONS & WARRANTIES” SECTION SHALL BE CONSTRUED TO LIMIT THE GENERALITY OF THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THIS SECTION.
For Jurisdictions that do not allow us to limit our liability:Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, if your jurisdiction has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the above then our liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, we do not disclaim liability for: (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation; or (c) any liability which it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.
IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A SPECIFIC STATEMENT REGARDING RELEASE THEN THE FOLLOWING APPLIES. FOR EXAMPLE, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST, AS A CONDITION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WAIVE THE APPLICABILITY OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH STATES, “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." YOU HEREBY WAIVE THIS SECTION OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY SIMILAR PROVISION IN LAW, REGULATION, OR CODE THAT HAS THE SAME INTENT OR EFFECT AS THE AFOREMENTIONED RELEASE.

You also agree that you have a duty to defend us against such claims and we may require you to pay for an attorney(s) of our choice in such cases. You agree that this indemnity extends to requiring you to pay for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements. In the event of a claim such as one described in this paragraph, we may elect to settle with the party/parties making the claim, and you shall be liable for the damages as though we had proceeded with a trial.
- Choice of Law
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws in force in the State of Connecticut. The offer and acceptance of this contract are deemed to have occurred in the State of Connecticut.
- Forum of Dispute
You agree that any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be heard solely by a court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Connecticut. Specifically, where the subject matter of a dispute is eligible for it, you agree that any disputes shall be heard solely within the lowest civil court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Connecticut (“Small Claims Court”).
If a dispute claims multiple claims and one or more of those claims would be eligible to be heard by the Small Claims Court, you agree not to bring the other claims against us and to instead proceed within the Small Claims Court.
If you would be entitled in a dispute to an amount exceeding the monetary jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court, you agree to waive your right to collect any damages in excess of the monetary jurisdiction and instead still bring your claim within the Small Claims Court. At the time of drafting this Agreement, the monetary jurisdiction of the Small Claims Court is $5,000.
You agree that if a dispute is eligible to be heard in Small Claims Court but you would be entitled to an additional or alternative remedy in a higher court, such as injunctive relief, you will waive your right to that remedy and still bring the dispute within the Small Claims Court.
If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so.
You agree that the unsuccessful party in any dispute arising from or relating to this Agreement will be responsible for the reimbursement of the successful party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, and disbursements.

In the event that a provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, conflicting with another provision of the Agreement, or otherwise unenforceable, the Agreement will remain in force as though it had been entered into without that unenforceable provision being included in it.
If two or more provisions of this Agreement are deemed to conflict with each other’s operation, Grand Brass Lamp Parts shall have the sole right to elect which provision remains in force.
Grand Brass Lamp Parts reserves all rights afforded to us under this Agreement as well as under the provisions of any applicable law. Our non-enforcement of any particular provision or provisions of this Agreement or any applicable law should not be construed as our waiver of the right to enforce that same provision under the same or different circumstances at any time in the future.
