However, delays and shipping rates may vary depending on the destination, the type of shipping chosen and the availability of the product from suppliers.

- Warranty, Refund and Exchange Policy
All sales physical products are final. No exchange or refund will be accepted, except if the product has a manufacturing defect or in a bad condition.
Also, to be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition you received it. It must also be in the original packaging. All items returned under this policy must be returned with the receipt for a replacement to be issued.
Unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange if you purchased a discontinued product, or an item on sale.
The value of replacements and store credits will be based on return inspection. Warranties and refund requests will be void if products have been damaged due to negligence, improper use, alteration (including taking apart an item), or poor maintenance and storage practices. Products will no longer be covered if used or stored in outdoor conditions at any point from the day of confirmed delivery. Warranties do not cover ordinary wear and tear or cosmetic damage.
Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use.
This barbell comes with a life time warranty from defects in material, functionality and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. “Lifetime” warranty coverage ends when the product becomes unusable for reasons other than defects in materials or workmanship. The warranty applies only to the original purchaser of the product for so long as the original purchaser owns the product, and is non-transferable. Warranty does not apply to barbells that need maintenance. Shipping charges are not included for the replacement of a defective bar.

We will not refund any orders which go over the delay prescript by the postal service. Refunds are not possible for an order not received for international orders if the shipping option was not trackable.
We are not responsible of any extra custom fee charged. This fee can vary from country to country depending on the value of the package. Sometime it might have one, sometime not.
