HOW DO I MAKE A RETURN OR EXCHANGE?
Request a return authorization by emailing us via our contact form. Authorization will be granted or denied within 2-3 business days upon review. Be sure to include your original order number for fastest processing.
Please be advised that any free shipping promotions used on the original order will be forfeited if the order is returned and the original shipping costs (paid or unpaid) will also be deducted from the refundable amount. We are not responsible for return postage unless the return is required due to our mistake, in which case we will send a pre-paid shipping label.
Due to the nature of our products, Sparksmith does not accept returns on custom parts (lens etching, projector tuning service, custom headlights, etc.), un-sealed HID bulbs, or any items in our Closeouts section. Our standard restocking fee structure is outlined below.
Tier 1: Perfect condition. (Unopened & like-new) = 100% refund or 100% store credit.
Tier 2: Re-conditionable. (Packaging opened or damaged) = 80% refund or 90% store credit.
Tier 3: Inability to restock. (Product & packaging both damaged) = 70% refund or 80% store credit.
WHAT IS OUR EXCHANGE POLICY?
Parts may be exchanged if they are in like-new condition with their original unopened packaging for credit towards anything else in-stock. Exchanges must be made within 60 days of the original purchase date. For example, you ordered projector "X" but changed your mind and now want to use projector "Y". If your returned part(s) cannot be restocked as "new" we reserve to right to deny the exchange or prorate the value of your exchange. If you need to make a rushed exchange, you can order the new part first and then return the original for a refund without being subject to any restocking fees on the “exchanged” item, subject to the conditional restocking fee outlined above. Request a return authorization by emailing us via our contact form. Authorization will be granted or denied within 2-3 business days.
