Return Policy

Standard Return Policy

We will accept any New and Unused product for Refund or Store Credit within 30 days from purchase. In very rare circumstances we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of 15% on returned merchandise that requires an exceptional amount of labor to process. Original shipping cost will not be refunded, but due to our $99 free shipping policy most items ship for free to begin with.

We also understand that life happens. In the case where you are not within the 30-Day time frame, please give us the opportunity to provide a solution specifically for you.

Damaged Package Claims

If you have received your order, and your package was damaged in transit, please contact us immediately (within 48 hours of receipt of your package). Customers with damaged packages can file a claim directly with us. We will most likely request that the damaged product(s) be shipped back to us for verification. HobbyTown may also require that photos be taken of damaged packages and or parts for inspection purposes. Photos of damaged goods will help us expedite the process and provide a better resolution.


Lost Package Claims

If you have not received your order, and feel your package may be lost, please contact us. All packages shipped by HobbyTown are insured for 100% of the package's value. If your package is in fact lost, we will either replace the package, credit your account for the full amount, or offer you a refund for the full amount of the order.

NOTE: HobbyTown is not responsible for return shipping, nor any fees associated with return shipping.


Defective Merchandise Return Policy

If you receive an item that is defective please contact Customer Service immediately by phone, email, or Live Chat. Most Manufacturers allow us to process Warranties in-house. In some situations, the manufacturer or supplier may prefer to handle the issue directly. If the manufacturer does not handle your claim to your satisfaction, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.

NOTE: We reserve the right to refuse any merchandise that is found to be free of defects.
