SHIPPING & DELIVERY
In-stock products ordered with CopperSmith have an estimated transit time of five (5) to twelve (12) business days. This does not include weekends or holidays as deliveries are conducted on business days only.
Custom or made-to-order products can take up to twelve (12) weeks for delivery from the date the CAD drawing is approved by the customer, depending on the type of product ordered. For custom or made-to-order products, production and delivery lead times are estimates. In the unlikely case of a custom or made-to-order product(s) exceeding 24 weeks from the CAD approval date, the customer has the right to cancel the custom or made-to-order product(s) for a full refund.
While the large majority of our orders arrive within the lead times shown, all delivery dates provided to the customer are good faith estimates due to multiple variables during transit and therefore are not guaranteed by CopperSmith. The handmade nature of our products does not allow us to make delivery date guarantees, only estimates. Our number one priority is quality and some orders may require more time to ensure the highest quality is met.
Free shipping is offered on all orders over $100 within the continental United States via Standard Shipping. Free shipping does not pertain to orders being shipped to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico or any foreign countries. Standard Shipping includes delivery to, and not beyond, the threshold or lobby/service area of a high-rise building. Please note that stairs to the front door or first dry area are not included with this delivery service.
CopperSmith is not responsible for any additional shipping charges or fees thereafter and shipping charges are subject to change without prior notification to the customer. Any additional charges accrued with the delivery company will be transferred to the customer. These include, but are not limited to, isolated zip or postal codes (e.g. back road, islands, etc.), missed attempt delivery charges, storage fees, additional delivery services and/or other potential charges to the product(s) ordered. Once an order has been set up for shipment, we cannot accept any changes to the product(s) ordered. It is the customers’ responsibility to keep track of the order from shipment to delivery.
RISK OF LOSS
All items purchased from Company are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to User upon our delivery to the carrier.
The Company attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Company does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this website are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error‐free. If a product offered by Company itself is not as described, User’s sole remedy is to return the product in unused condition.
THIRD-PARTY SITES AND INFORMATION
The Website may link User to other sites on the Internet or otherwise include references to information, documents, software, materials and/or services provided by other parties. These sites may contain information or material that some people may find inappropriate or offensive.

WHO PAYS FOR RETURN SHIPPING?
The shipment of a return is to be independently arranged and covered by the customer. Just like most return policies we are only able to accept returned items that are in-stock items, in original packaging and new condition. This means that products with any scratches, stains, damages, or modifications cannot be returned. Please note that any shipping charges incurred from the original order are not able to be refunded once these services have been provided by the carrier.

Any product returned without authorization, returned to the incorrect location, or returned in a damaged or unsaleable condition are subject to additional fees that will be deducted from your final refund.
As soon as the product(s) are received back to our warehouse and upon inspection of the returned product(s) our team will issue your refund minus a restocking fee equal to 15% of the purchase price. Please note that a minimum 15% restocking fee applies to all returns. Per inspection, as long as the product is found in new condition and received in its original packaging, you will be issued the refund you are due. If a returned product is determined to be in a damaged or unsaleable condition, it will be subject to additional fees being deducted from the credit, or the credit may be denied completely. Please allow 3-5 business days for the refund to appear on your account after issuance.
MY PRODUCT ARRIVED DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE. WHAT DO I DO?
We stand behind the quality of products we sell. While cases are rare, damages and defects do happen once in a while. It is imperative that you inspect your package for damage before signing the delivery receipt or proof of delivery.
You must note the damages with the driver or shipping company at the time of delivery. If the package is damaged in transit, please refuse the delivery and SIGN THE DELIVERY RECEIPT AS DAMAGED.
DO NOT DESTROY ORIGINAL PACKAGING. Products not shipped in the original packaging will not be covered by CopperSmith and will NOT BE ELIGIBLE for return, exchange or DAMAGED REPLACEMENT if applicable.
To file a claim you must contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org within three (3) calendar days of delivery and our customer service team will assist you.

CopperSmith’s products are for indoor use only, unless explicitly specified, and as such will not cover the cost for damaged or defective items in the event that the product(s) was made damaged or defective as a result of customer negligence.

Orders canceled within 24 hours from the time of placement are subject to a 3% transaction fee. After the 24-hour window, orders will be subject to a minimum 10% administration fee without exception. AFTER 48 HOURS ALL SALES ARE FINAL meaning that all orders will not be eligible for cancellation.
CopperSmith offers a 1-year limited warranty against manufacturer defects including, mechanical malfunctions, leaking, structural damage, finishes, welds and basin slopes. All products must be inspected for warranty or defects prior to installation. If a defect is found, CopperSmith will, at its election, repair, replace or make appropriate adjustments to the warranted product.
Normal wear and tear or damage from daily use are not warranted. Copper, bronze, and nickel products can be expected to naturally change over time with normal use. Products are fabricated from natural elements and are therefore subject to imperfections and/or inconsistencies, or variances in color, texture, and patina, which are not covered under our warranty. Other exclusions include damages incurred as a result of installation, misuse or abuse of the product, replacement or repair, alteration of product, and damages due to improper cleaning or neglect.
CopperSmith warranty claims cover the product only and do not cover the following: product modifications by the client or installer, expedited shipping or production costs, installation costs resulting from the removal of the defective product, or reinstallation costs of a replacement.
