Midwest Technology Products will pass on to its customers each manufacturer’s standard limited warranty, if any.
Warranty return value will be based on the terms of the manufacturer warranty. In some cases, it will be prorated based on the length of use and will be less than original purchase price. Return value will be credited to the credit card used to make the original purchase or to your school account.
Warranties listed herein only apply to the original purchaser for private, non-commercial use or school use.
Warranties are limited to the retail price paid for the product. NEITHER WARRANTOR NOR MANUFACTURER SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, INDIRECT AND SPECIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM DEFECTS IN THE PRODUCT. This warranty does not cover miscellaneous expenses for removal, installation, service, or down time, nor does it cover material, labor, or additional parts required for replacement or repair of damages caused by abuse (including fire), misuse, neglect, or failure to follow manufacture’s operating and /or installation instructions.
If a product you purchased through Midwest Technology Products fails during the warranty period, you may receive an adjustment by returning the product to Midwest Technology Products. To receive the adjustment, all terms of the warranty must be met.

Packaging exceeds minimum carrier standards. It is your responsibility to check the shipment carefully before signing the delivery receipts and truck bills of lading. Count the cartons and examine for damage. If there is a shortage or damage, note this on the freight bill before signing. If you find damage after you open the carton, immediately report this to the freight company and request a freight claim inspection. Also, notify our Sales/Customer Service Staff. Freight carriers must be notified of concealed damage within 10 days for them to accept any responsibility. Remember your responsibility begins and the freight company's responsibility ends when you sign for and accept the shipment.
- Products in our Web catalog may be on backorder at the time you place your order.
- Unless you specify otherwise, all products that we generally stock will be shipped only when the entire order, including those products that must be backordered, can be shipped together. All “directs” which consist of those products which are shipped directly from the manufacturer will routinely be shipped separately and may arrive at a different time than any “stock” products included in your order.
- If any products ordered have been discontinued by the manufacturer, you will be notified via email or telephone before your order is processed. At the time of notification, you may modify or cancel your order without penalty.
- Your order is filled, checked, and then packed with the utmost care.
- At the time of delivery, verify that the number of cartons shipped equals what you received. Check for damage. If a box is dented or damaged in any way, have the driver make a note of it on your delivery receipt. Then contact our customer service department immediately. Trucking companies have a 10-day claim period. If a claim is not made within that period, they will not honor it.
- To return products that were shipped as ordered, you must, at a minimum, pay return freight or postage, PLUS a 15% restocking and handling fee subject to a minimum of $20.00. All orders are subject to the manufacturer’s applicable return policy. Some manufacturers will not accept returns for products shipped as ordered.
