It is strongly recommended that at least 5% more quantity is added to what your measurement is.
Cabinets.co ships product quantity solely based on the quantity you entered when you placed an order. Although due to our quality packaging and palletized for overseas shipment, the breakage/damage is very minimum, however, please allow up to 10% breakage/damage rate, which is considered as normal in this industry.
For breakage/damage claim more than 10%, please follow our return policy procedure (Return Policy) to file a claim with our customer service department.

We have a lot of customers using air ship and are very happy about the final delivered prices.

Therefore, Cabinets.co cannot guarantee the delivery lead time will fall into the estimated range hereby due to any reason beyond our control.

Cabinets.co will accept any damaged items. Please, take a look at our policy for kitchen and/or vanity cabinets, once your cabinets arrives, please follow the following return and shipping policy. We take our responsibility seriously thus trying to make it as clear as possible under different situations:
Situation 1: Cabinets arrived damaged:
Inspect and report any damage to the freight driver, the receiver (customer) must note the damages with the freight driver. Important step: Get a copy of the paperwork from the freight driver as a proof of evidence (you can also take a photo of the driver’s paperwork using your Smartphone). It is a must to take some photos of the material damaged at this point, as part of evidence.
Please call our number or email us at email@example.com with photo evidence (a copy of the paperwork from the freight driver and damage photos) right away.
If customer detects other damage after the freight truck driver left, customer have 3 (three business) days to do a full inspection, if there is any damage found, Please call our number or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with photo evidence right away. Upon we receive your photo evidence; Cabinets.co will start the return process right away and ship the new exchange cabinets to the customer. Again, photos as evidence are part of this process and MUST be sent to us for claim purpose.
When we receive the photos of the material damage, we will ship the new replacement of cabinets within 3 business days, usually within 24 hours to you! Meaning we will take good care of you immediately before we can even file the claim with freight companies and possibly we will not get the reimbursement from the freight companies. Cabinets.co will take care of our customers first before anything else as long as the damage photo evidences are presented.
Cabinets.co will NOT ask you to deal with the freight company for damage claim and go through all the hassles. We will take good care of you, and we deal with the damage claim between Freight Company and Cabinets.co.
However, without evidence of material damage (photos) and written statement on the freight career’s paperwork, we can NOT process the claim and we will NOT send out the new replacement cabinets. Cabinets.co appreciates the cooperation from our kitchen & vanity cabinet customers.
The customer will be expected to keep the cabinets until any shipping claim is complete, because sometimes a shipper may request to inspect the cabinets. Cabinets.co take good care of our customer first even before the damage claim processes started, however, we do need your help to complete the claim process so that we can get reimbursement for our loss. Keeping the damage cabinets for inspection is a requirement from Freight Company. We will notify you when the claim is complete and inform you how to deal with the damage cabinets which you already get the new replacement cabinets.
After 3 (three) days, if no damage reported, it is considered to be accepted by customer and no further claim is accepted by freight company thus we cannot accept claim either.
Situation 2: Cabinets arrived with factory defects:
If customer receives a cabinet/part is believed to be factory defect, inform us ASAP and forward pictures so we can review and determine if it is indeed factory defect. Please be sure that customer does NOT assemble any cabinets they believe have factory defects until we have reviewed and get back to you for further instruction.
After we review the photos you sent and determined it is factory defect, we will ship the replacement to you immediately and also notify how you will deal with the defect cabinets, which is so rare that we did not receive any report for factory defect during the past 3 years after shipping thousands kitchens of cabinets.
Situation 3: I ordered the wrong color/size cabinets or I just change my mind for what color/sizes I want:
If customer orders the wrong color/size and needs to return the cabinet or cabinets, you will need to notify us first for authorization. Please email the request to email@example.com with 3 days!
Since it is no fault from our end, any returns due to customer’s changing mind or made a mistake when ordering, a 30% restocking fee needs to be charged. Shipping and handling cost must be paid by customer. We will refund the rest to your account. Again, the return has to be made within 3 days; anything over 3 days is typically not returnable so let us know ASAP.
Situation 4: If I placed an order and when I receive the shipment, there is no fault on cabinets.co side, but I just change my mind, can I still return the products?
Since it is no fault from our end, customer will need to cover/handle return shipping cost. After items are returned and inspected by the warehouse, and the cabinets are in good and resalable condition, a credit after the 30% restocking fee will be issued to your account. Shipping and handling cost must be paid by customer.
If you want to choose other color/sizes cabinets, you can place a new order and let us know so that we can use the credit toward your new order instead of refund to your account; if you place a new order, we will only charge 20% restocking fee instead of 30%.
