Blu Dot Store Policies

Shipping

We strive to deliver your purchase in excellent condition as quickly as possible. If you have special delivery circumstances that need to be considered, please let us know within 24 hours of your order.

Standard Freight
Your items will be delivered to your receiver's commercial loading dock via truck or FedEx. All freight shipments remain palletized and will be unloaded via pallet jack. Our partner will contact your receiver 24-48 hours in advance to schedule a delivery appointment. Evening and weekend delivery is not available at this time.

Payment
When your order leaves our warehouse, ownership is transferred, and you will be charged at that time.

Split Shipping
Orders containing out of stock items are typically held to ship complete. However, if you would prefer to split ship your order, please contact your salesperson. If you request to split-ship your order, we will ship the in-stock items at the earliest opportunity, and the remainder of the order once the other item(s) return to stock. This may result in multiple delivery appointments. Note that orders shipping to Canada cannot be split-shipped.

Swatch Orders
Swatch orders are shipped via USPS and arrive within 5 to 7 days.

Holds
In stock orders can be held free of charge for up to 60 days from purchase. Holds may be extended past 60 days with a non-refundable deposit equaling 50% of the order total. This deposit must be paid via Check or Wire-Transfer. After one year, the customer forfeits their deposit, and the order is cancelled. This can be done free of charge if your order has not yet shipped. Once it has shipped and is available for delivery, it will be subject to storage fees after 10 days.

Warehouse fees
If you cannot accept delivery for an extended period of time after your order has shipped, you will be charged a fee to store your order. We can delay shipping your order, however, to avoid storage charges. Please let us know at the time you place your order if you are unable to accept immediate delivery.

Redelivery fees
If redelivery of your order is required due to a missed delivery appointment with our carrier, there will be a $149 fee. Ouch.

Reroute fees (Freight deliveries only)
It is possible to change the destination address of an order once it has shipped. There is a $149 fee to make this magic happen.

Remote areas
We try our best to get all orders delivered in a timely manner, but if you live in a remote area, there may be delays. Let us know in advance if you live in a challenging delivery location and we will work with you to come up with a solution.

Returns

Please retain all original packaging if you are not sure that your purchase will work. All returns are subject to a restocking fee starting at 20% of original purchase price. Note that original delivery fees are non-refundable and additional shipping fees and/or restocking fees may apply. Returns are not allowed on Showroom orders and prior Blu Dot authorization is required for all returns.

Return Shipping Cost
Original delivery fees are non-refundable. In addition, you will be responsible for a return freight fee equal to 20% of the product cost.

Condition of Product
To receive a full refund, the returned product must arrive at our warehouse in its original condition. We recommend that if you aren't 100% sure that your purchase will work, please retain all original packaging. That will make it easier for you to return it to us without shipping damage.

Damaged or Defective Product
If an item arrives damaged, please notify us within 3 days of receipt and we will make arrangements for a replacement or refund as necessary. No re-stocking fees or return shipping charges will apply. Please contact your sales associate to report damage or defective items. Please note, we may request images of the damage for our records.

Cancellation policy
In-stock items can ship out of our warehouse within 12–48 hours of the order being placed. If you would like to cancel your order, please let us know as soon as possible. You will receive a full refund if your order is cancelled before it leaves our warehouse. Shipping fees are non-refundable if your order is cancelled after it has shipped out of our facility.

Freight returns
Notify your sales associate and they will provide you with the necessary paperwork and have our freight partner contact you to schedule a pickup.

FedEx returns
Notify your sales associate and they will provide you with a return label and can arrange a pickup for an additional fee.

International orders
Returns are only available for items that were shipped within the United States or Canada. Additional shipping fees or duties may apply on Canadian returns. If you would like to return an item that was shipped to another country, please contact your sales associate. Please note that you will be responsible for all shipping fees to return items from abroad.

Orders sent via freight forwarders
It is the responsibility of the freight forwarder to inspect your purchase upon receipt. To be eligible for replacement, all damages will have to be reported before forwarding onto the final destination.
