GNkitchenandbath.com will accept payment in the form of a check, though these purchases must be completed by phone only. For purchases paid by check, in stock items will not be shipped, and special order items will not be ordered from the respective manufacturers, until the check has cleared. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
GNkitchenandbath.com Shipping PoliciesPlease be advised that GNkitchenandbath.com cannot ship any merchandise to PO Box addresses.
Standard Ground Shipping - Small Parcel UPS and FedEx Items
GNkitchenandbath.com offers FREE SHIPPING on items able to ship via UPS or Federal Express Ground for orders that are $99 or greater. This Free Shipping Offer is applicable only to orders shipping to the 48 continental United States. Orders less than $99.00 may incur a standard processing and handling charge of $10.00 plus Standard Shipping. Orders cannot be combined for the purposes of this free shipping offer.
What you can expect for Small Parcel shipments
The high value of many of the products offered by GNkitchenandbath.com requires a signature upon delivery even for UPS and Federal Express shipments. If delivery without a signature is desired, it is suggested that you a leave a signed note on the door with the appropriate instructions for the driver. Failure to do so may result in the item(s) being returned to the shipper by the carrier. Additional charges for this return shipment will be incurred by the customer.
Truck Freight - Large & Oversized Items
Large items, such as bathtubs, Whirlpools, Cabinetry or Furniture, may ship via truck freight. Orders containing items that must ship via truck freight will incur a shipping charge. Items that must ship via truck freight are notated by the manufacturer based on the size and packaging of the product in question. Items that must ship via truck freight are marked as such on the individual product pages.
What you can expect for Large Item Truck Freight shipments
Items shipped via truck freight are delivered to curbside or driveway only. Most carries will contact you to set up a delivery time, usually a 2-4 hour appointment window during business hours. As such, it is the customer's responsibility to provide an accurate contact phone number for the delivery address.
If you require special assistance with a Truck Freight delivery, additional services like inside delivery and lift gate are available at an additional charge.
At the time of delivery, the driver will require that you inspect the condition of the shipment and sign the delivery receipt. Be sure to note on the receipt ANY and ALL visible damage to the packaging of your item(s). Noting the condition of the delivery is the responsibility of the customer - not the driver.
If the carrier is unable to contact the customer, the customer will then be responsible for any storage fees or freight charges back to the shipper. See our Return Policies for full details.
Shipping Lead Times
GNkitchenandbath.com strives to provide its customers with the most accurate information on product availability using the tools and resources made available both in house and by our manufacturers.
The lead times that are posted on the individual product pages are estimates only. These times are estimated based on the assumption that the item in question is currently in stock with the manufacturer and on the manufacturer's typical speed at which orders are processed and shipped.
GNkitchenandbath.com is not responsible for any costs associated with shipment delays. We strongly suggest that any professional services required to install your product(s) not be scheduled until your order has arrived and been inspected.

Important Information to Review While you Wait for Your Credit
To File or Not To File a Dispute?Please do not request a charge back from your credit card company during the return process. Due to the time it takes to resolve charge back disputes, it is usually better to be patient and wait for the return process to run its course. If a charge back has been submitted, we will not be able to credit you for your return until the charge back mediation process has been completed. This process can take up to 180 days. In certain cases, initiating a charge back can void your ability to receive any credit at all.
The Item is not "As-New"If the item is determined to not be in "As-New" condition we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of up to 75% on top of the return shipping charges.
The Item is Returned Without an RGAItems returned without an RGA are subject to an automatic 50% restocking fee and based on the item, may be denied.
Exceptions and Items not Eligible for ReturnUnfortunately, under certain circumstances items purchased from GNkitchenandbath.com are not eligible for return.
These exceptions and items are as follows:
Upon receipt of your return, we will issue you a Return Acknowledgement. This is your proof that we have your item in our possession and what condition the item was returned in.
Although we still have to ship the item back to the Manufacturer we can expedite your return if the item is determined to be in "as new" condition. In this case, your credit will usually be processed within 2-3 business days.
Restocking FeesSome of our manufacturers charge restocking fees for the return of undamaged and non-defective merchandise. Although we still have to pay them, we will waive your restocking fee with a new order of equal or greater value.
The individual product pages will indicate if the manufacturer of the item charges a restocking fee and if so, the extent of that restocking fee.
These restocking fees are charged by the manufacturer in addition to any shipping deductions that may be incurred in returning an item.
Large Quantity PurchasesWhen ordering large quantities (6+) of the same item we strongly suggest ordering a single sample for evaluation before you place the full order.
Returns of any item in quantities of 6 or more units will be subject to a return review. Depending upon the item and the manufacturer you may be charged a restock fee or have the return denied.
"Final Sale" Products (AKA Closeouts)There are many items available for purchase at GNkitchenandbath.com that are marked as Closeout Products and are further discounted from their regular low price. These are products that have been discontinued by the Manufacturer and are therefore subject to availability as inventory runs out.
- All Closeout Products are sold as Final Sales.

- Products that are sold as closeouts are subject to availability. Should a Closeout Product become unavailable after placing an order, you will be notified immediately, and your order cancelled at no penalty to you.
