• Back-Bone has a 14-day refund and/or exchange policy for most merchandise.
  • No products are eligible for price adjustments after purchase.
  • To be considered for return the product(s) must be in ‘as-new’ condition.
  • Defective products may be returned to Back-Bone for inspection within 14 days of the purchase. Once our inspection confirms the item is defective, a replacement product will be provided at the discretion of Management and/or the manufacturer.

Standard Return

Goods may be returned or exchanged within 14 days of receipt providing:

  • They are returned in “as new” condition, free of visible marks, scratches or defects
  • They are complete with all packaging materials and are accompanied by a receipt from the original purchase
  • Shipping charges are not refunded.
  • Return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We are not responsible for personal data or items left in returned merchandise.

When sending a return, customers must first contact Back-Bone for the proper instructions. FedEx and USPS are recommended for return shipping. UPS shipments from outside Canada will not be accepted as they will charge additional fees to Back-Bone. In the event that taxes or duties are charged to Back-Bone on receipt of a returned item they will be subtracted from the refund. A receipt of the tax/duty charge will be provided to the customer in that case.

Refunds will be made using the same method as the original payment.

Restocking Fee

All returns are subject to inspection and return approval by back-bone staff. Back-Bone reserves the right to charge for missing or damaged merchandise and parts. If Back-Bone management determines that an item is returnable but does not meet all guidelines, Back-Bone reserves the right to charge an additional restocking fee. The fee charged may vary according to the item’s condition, the state of the item’s packaging and the item value. The minimum restocking fee is 10%.
