  • You are solely responsible for product(s) that are lost or damaged by the carrier during return shipping to ACWholesalers.

Ground Shipments


Step 1Step 2Step 3

1. Pack up your purchased products(s) with all the manufacturer contents and product packaging. Make sure to put your product(s) in another box as no markings can be added to the manufacturer boxes.


2. Print out a copy of the Returns Merchandise Authorization Email which shows the RMA Number, and place that along with your returns. Having the RMA Paperwork included in the box will help expedite the inspection and refund process. 

3. Use a trackable return shipping method from UPS and ship the product(s) to ACWholesalers Return Center. Please note: USPS is not recommended because of the lack of details on tracking information.



Freight Shipments


When you originally receive your order, if it was shipped in a pallet via Less Than a Truckload (LTL), you will most likely have to return it in a pallet via LTL. If you are unsure if the product(s) being returned require ground or freight services, please feel free to contact us.

What happens after ACWholesalers receives my return?


Once we receive the product(s) back to our facilities we inspect them to assure all guidelines were met as described above. This process normally takes one to two business days for review.


For Approved Product(s):

We will submit the credit for the product(s) within 2-3 business days of approval. Depending on the payment method, some credit(s) can take as long as 10 business days to be refunded to your original payment method.


For Denied Product(s):

The product(s) you are attempting to return failed to meet our return guidelines. We will notify you of such situations and advise that the product(s) will be at our dock awaiting your request for a pickup. Unfortunately, ACWholesalers will not issue a refund of any value nor will we ship the product(s) back to you. You will need to set up a pickup for the product(s) and shipping charges associated will not be reimbursed.
