If a customer feels a product may have caused their animal to become ill, it may be necessary for that customer to contact the manufacturer directly. In most cases, our manufacturers list an 800 number for their convenience.
Frozen Product: All frozen items must be checked in at the time of delivery with the driver. Any delivery issues will be written up by the driver and your account will be adjusted accordingly. No returns will be accepted on frozen products after being checked in. Please verify your emailed Invoice prior to your delivery for accuracy.
Shortages/Damages/Mispicks & Overages: All orders require a signature at the time of delivery. Please review your order for any damages or discrepancies. The driver may take back any products that are damaged or misdelivered at time of delivery. Adjustments will be made to the account upon the driver’s submission of Generation Pet’s delivery copy.
- Shortages: All shortages are subject to verification. If the driver does not note shortages at the time of delivery, credit is not guaranteed. If you notice a shortage after the driver leaves, please contact the office and we will investigate the shortage. Our new inventory system only allows scanning of product to ensure accuracy of your order. Given our scanning methods and digital technology, we can easily pin point order shortages and remedy them.
- Damages: All damages must be submitted within 24 hours with a photo taken at the time of delivery showing the damage caused by Generation Pet and a completed Order Discrepancy Form. Please submit the Photo and Order Discrepancy form in 1 EMAIL to email@example.com. Failure to provide the required information within the 24 hours from time of delivery does not guarantee a credit.
Mispicks/Overages: All mispicks will be credited immediately for the item that was charged. An invoice will be generated for the correct product that was received. If you do not wish to keep the mispicked product, an RMA will be issued to you. At the time of your next delivery, please provide the copy of the RMA and product to the driver. The product will be inspected for quality condition in order to qualify for credit. If an error has been noted after the driver has left, please contact the office within 24 hours of delivery receipt.
Short Dated/Expired Product: Generation Pet defines “short-dated” as any item with less than 90 days of the expiration date. Short Dated/Expired Products are NOT eligible for return unless they are delivered that way or there is pre-approval from the manufacturer in the form of email to Generation Pet.
Spoiled/Infested Products: Generation Pet is committed to providing all natural, holistic, and organic products. It is inherently understood that from time to time infestation may occur as a natural by-product to chemical free ingredients. Should a product purchased from Generation Pet appear to be infested please contact the office immediately. Once given approval, Generation Pet will issue a return form and instructions on how to proceed. The product must have been purchased within the previous 30 days.
Overstock Returns: Generation Pet does not guarantee the sale of any item. Returned items are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Products must have at least 90 days left on their shelf life and be resellable. Once approved, credit will be applied to your account which may be used at a later date. If products are returned in unsellable condition, credit will not be issued and products will not be sent back.
