RESTOCKING FEES 

A 25% restocking fee may apply to the following:

DAMAGES/RETURNS/EXCHANGES 

AHF may accept claims for damaged merchandise or missing parts within one year of the invoice date. Claims can be submitted on AHF website using the Merchandise Claim Form. If you have not obtained prior approval for a return, AHF has the right to refuse the merchandise and send it back with your driver, or refuse delivery with an outside freight company. 

We reserve the option of repairing or replacing any part(s) found to be defective in workmanship for up to one year from the invoice date. 

All parts/replacements larger than small parcel, will ship with your next order. 

Only the reseller who purchased the merchandise from AHF is authorized to make the return.

If parts are not available, a discount or full credit for the purchase price will be given. Any manufacturer defective items or damaged items must be inspected solely by AHF, either in person or by photograph, and deemed a manufacturer defect or damaged item prior to any parts or credit being issued. Please check with your AHF Sales Rep for additional details. 

The following examples are not manufacturer’s defects:

  • Colors that vary from the catalog or website photo due to photography and printing tolerances.
  • Foam will soften slightly.
  • Sizes are stated in US standard measurements. The actual sizes are manufactured using the metric system, and therefore sizes may slightly vary.
  • Damage obtained in transit by a driver or outside freight company. 

Please note that there are no returns or refunds on any special-order items. 

PACKAGING/HANDLING/SHIPPING 

All products from AHF are packaged to reduce any potential damage that may occur during shipping and handling. However, the original packaging of most AHF products does not meet the shipping standards for small parcel delivery services. 

We do not recommend using these shipping services and other similar companies who are not familiar with handling furniture. If you choose to utilize such services, the dealer assumes responsibility to ensure that the packaging meets the shipping standards set by the carrier, and that each product is repacked before it is shipped. Any damage to merchandise incurred through these services will not be accepted for a parts request, refund or credit. 

Merchandise shipped with an outside freight company must be inspected prior to signing the delivery receipt. If an item appears to have damage, or if the skids are not wrapped, banded and standing up on the skid, you are required to notate this on the delivery receipt prior to receiving the goods into your store. If a delivery receipt is not notated, AHF will be unable to assist you with a freight claim and will not be responsible for damages.

PICK-UP/DELIVERY OPTIONS AHF 

offers a variety of pick-up and delivery options in order to offer the best solutions to our Members. These methods include: 

  • Will call pick-up
  • LTL and Third-Party Carriers
  • Container Direct
  • Our own truckloads upon request 

Shipping orders will only be processed to approved business ship-to locations. Please double check your invoices for accuracy, including ship to location. AHF will not be responsible for any additional cost incurred if you fail to confirm you invoice prior to shipment. 

AHF must be made aware of your receiving days, receiving hours, and of any delivery requirements that you may have, such as a call ahead, appointment requirements and/or if a lift gate is required upon releasing orders for shipment. Members are responsible for additional services that are performed by an LTL or Third-Party Carrier. Any such charges received from the freight company that were not accounted for prior to shipment will be billed directly to your AHF account.
