Requesting a Return Merchandise Authorization (R.M.A.)
This process initiates a refund or exchange. Pending your request to
firstname.lastname@example.org, a RMA
questionnaire will be sent to you via e-mail from the returns department. This
must be completely filled out and sent electronically back to the returns
department; leaving no questions unanswered will expedite this process. The
returns personnel will have 24-48 business hours to process your RMA. It is this
department that will alert you with the proper steps to proceed once the RMA is
open and processing.
Once an RMA number is given it
remains valid for 10 business days (two weeks). If the lamps are not received in
that time, the RMA will be closed and a new one must be initiated..
Be advised return shipping is expected of the customer. We pride ourselves in having low and affordable prices compared to our competitors. We see it more beneficial to provide instant savings versus escalated prices to provide shipping labels as other companies do.

If failed to do so, Advanced Lamps does not reserve the right to be accountable for product being lost or damaged in transit.

Generally, upon arrival, all
lamps undergo a series of three thorough tests with cool down periods. Function
ability, brightness, physical appearance and condition of the product are
observed and taken into account. It is not until this process has been completed
that the bulb is determined to be defective. If the bulb is not defective, a
restocking fee will be applied.
In addition, any opened, altered product
box, and/or incorrectly ordered product(s) will be subject to a restocking fee
of up to 25% or possibly refused. As a reseller, a used, opened item has lost
