RMA Policies & Procedures

We understand it is sometimes necessary to exchange or return item(s).

Returns and Replacements not purchased directly from MDL MUST go thru the original place of purchase.

No item(s) will be accepted for return or exchange without a Return Material Authorization    (RMA)

For items purchased directly from MDL, you may return items within 30 days of receipt.

All returns must be freight pre-paid.    Items returned through COD cannot be accepted by MDL.


Items that meet these conditions are:

  • New item in or accompanied by the original packaging the item(s) must be in/unaltered condition.
    – Unaltered means that NO restoration, painting, major cleaning, or removal of finish, physical damage structural or cosmetic or change of any kind has occurred
    The item(s) Must be in re-sellable condition.
  • Used core, as long as it is shipped in the box that contained the new product.
  • Any item received in a damaged or defective condition.
  • Any item received in error.

Returns are subject to a 20% Restocking Fee for the following conditions

The customer changes their mind about a purchase

  • No longer needed/wanted
  • Bought by mistake
  • Better price found available elsewhere

**  This fee may also be charged based on the determination upon inspection of the returned parts.  **


Note: Items that have not been returned within 45 days after the issue of RMA #
no longer qualify for a return.

MDL will refund shipping charges under these conditions.

  • if the wrong item was sent to the customer or if the item is defective or damaged upon arrival.


When exchanging parts (restocking fee waived)

Store Credit

In the event the customer wishes an in-store credit, we ask that you Indicate this is as your preference on the receipt.  –  We will issue an in-house credit if you are not ready to purchase immediately

All credits (except store credit) will be applied to the original payment method used for the original purchase.  Allow 1-2 billing cycles for the credit to appear on your statement.

Due to the nature of our products, reviewing returns can be a long and involved process.
