Return Policies

What if my purchase is damaged or defective?
Our suppliers hold to the highest standards of quality control, and all our products are warranted by the manufacturers. If by chance you receive a product that is damaged or defective please follow our "how to request a return" steps located here.  We will be happy to exchange your boat for another one of the same style or, with any needed payment changes, for another boat or style.  Returns must be requested within 3 days of delivery confirmation with the shipping company.


Manufacturer Defects

If the product you receive is defective or is missing a part, you must return the product to the manufacturer directly for warranty service.  DO NOT RETURN THE DEFECTIVE PRODUCT TO RCBOATSONLY.COM - THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. All our manufacturers ask that they be contacted directly by us first with all defect issues.  Usually they will send out the required part, or replace your unit entirely.  However, the product must be returned to the manufacturer or importer in the original packaging and not show signs of use or mistreatment.  The manufacturer will look over the product and assess the problem.  Once that is done, they will exchange and ship out another boat directly to you.  Should they refuse to provide you with a replacement, we can offer you a substantial discount (40%) on another purchase provided you cover the cost of shipping.  Please follow our "how to request a return" steps located here.  Returns must be requested within 3 days of delivery confirmation with the shipping company.
