Return Procedure

A. Return Merchandise Authorization ("RMA") for Product Returns

If a repair is required, customer must request and obtain a RMA number through fax or e-mail. All returns must be accompanied with the RMA number and freight must be prepaid. The RMA number is valid for 30 days and customer must re-obtain the RMA number if not used within 30 days.
NUVICO will not accept any unauthorized returns or freight collect returns. We will return the entire shipment, even if a portion of it has an RMA, to the shipper at its expense. If a returned product contains parts that are no longer available or repairable, NUVICO will contact you to discuss a resolution.

A restocking charge of twenty percent (20%) of the purchase price and a refurbishing charge for missing parts/accessories/original packaging will be applied to all approved credit returns for standard Products for reasons other than Product failure.
