Shipping & Returns

 

If you need to return an item, please review our Return Policy below and submit an online Return Authorization Request or call customer service at 1-877-572-6683 for assistance.

Shipping Policy

When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.

Please also note that while many of our items ship for free, the shipping rates for some items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. All weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.

Return Policy

Most items may be returned within 30 days of receipt for a full refund. They must be returned at the customer’s expense in their original packaging and meet the following conditions:

  • Product must be in new condition.  For example, no cracks, scratches, dirty or marked tires, or any indications of usage.
  • Product must be returned in its original packaging. You can purchase new packaging for lift chairs and scooters by calling customer service.
  • Return Authorization must be requested from us within 30 days of delivery of the product.
  • Once an RA has been received, products must be returned within 14 days.

There are certain products that are custom-made by the manufacturer and are non-returnable. These include:

  • Ultralightweight wheelchairs
  • Sport wheelchairs
  • Handcycles
  • Golden Technologies PR-502 lift chairs
  • Tracer IV Custom heavy-duty wheelchair
  • Open-Box Items

Some products require a 15% restocking fee for returns. These include:

  • Lift chairs
  • Power wheelchairs
  • Vehicle lifts
  • Custom lightweight wheelchairs
  • Parts

All returned products require a Return Authorization number. Returns received without this number will not be credited. The easiest way to request an RA number is by completing our easy online Return Authorization Request.

You may also call us toll free at 1-877-572-6683 or email us via our online contact form to request an RA number. Please include your order number, name and the item number you are returning.

PLEASE NOTE: Products returned without an RA number will not be credited. To receive full credit, items must be shipped within 14 days from the day the RA Number and shipping information were provided by Independent Mobility.

Return Shipping

Unless Independent Mobility made an error, return freight is the customer's responsibility. We will be happy to help you determine which shipping method to use once you have requested your RA number. We highly recommend insuring larger items for their retail value to protect against shipping damage.

Please be sure to carefully follow all return-shipping instructions that are included with your Return Authorization number. If an item is returned to the wrong address, Independent Mobility reserves the right to charge for any additional shipping fees associated with shipping the item to the correct location. In addition, if a scheduled pickup with a delivery carrier is missed, Independent Mobility may institute a $10 fee per missed scheduled pickup.

Cancelled Orders

Orders cancelled after the item has shipped are subject to all standard return policies. You must accept delivery, obtain an RA Number and ship the item back to the correct address. If delivery of an item is refused, return shipping costs are deducted from the issued credit and a 25% restocking fee (minimum $25) will apply. Second-Day and Next-Day shipping costs will not be credited if delivery is refused.

 

Credits

Once your return is received, Independent Mobility will issue a credit to the credit card used for the purchase. Please allow up to 4 weeks for your credit to be issued.  If you paid by check or money order, we will issue a check within 30 days.

If your item is defective or was damaged in shipping, please call us toll free at 1-877-572-6683 or email us via our online contact form. We will arrange for the item to be repaired or replaced promptly.
