If you need to return an item, please Contact Us or call Customer Service at 1-803-932-0817 with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order if the product is deemed returnable.
Many rapid tests sales are final and are non-refundable. Speares Medical fully stands behind the quality of our products and customer satisfaction is our number one priority. Due to the nature of the products we sell many items are not returnable and all sales are final. For example, drug test kits are regulated by the FDA and require specific storage requirements which can not be validated once the product leaves our warehouses. Drug and alcohol testing products are non refundable due to the nature of the product. In the unlikely event the product is deemed defective by Speares Medical Company or if we shipped the wrong product we will issue a refund or product replacement.
You should expect to receive your refund within 2-3 weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
Testing devices suspected of being defective require proof of suspected product failure either by pictures and/or copies of laboratory confirmation. Returned product will be sent to the manufacturer for further QA/QC testing. If the product is determine to be defective we will replace the product, issue a refund check or process a credit card refund. Please keep in mind that our testing products are of highest quality and reliability. Most testing discrepancies and errors are determined to be procedural in nature. Please refer to the product package insert for product details, directions for use and results interpretation.
Refrigerated Product: Due to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) regulations, Speares Medical does not offer returns on refrigerated products unless shipped in error by Speares Medical or one of our factory partners.
Please have the following information on hand when calling with a suspected product issue: customer name, sales order or invoice number and the nature of the problem. In many cases we will require pictures of the suspected defective product.
As always we appreciate your business.
