smartCRUTCH Refund and Return Policy We love our customers and want to serve you as best we can. We also believe in the quality and design benefits of smartCRUTCH and stand by the product. As such we aim to be as transparent, affordable, and fair as possible with the Terms and Conditions (“T&C’s”) as well as our returns, exchanges, and refunds policy upon which we sell and supply our products listed on this website to you. We would like to give you the opportunity to see and try the product with the option to return it if it’s not suited to you, however, to do this we cannot absorb the cost of freight across the USA and Canada on such a large heavy package, the same goes for orders placed mistakenly. Equally the ‘spirit’ of this opportunity to return the product is that it’s returned to us in saleable condition, the same way you would try something on in a brick-and-mortar store and choose not to purchase it. We appreciate your consideration in this and ask you to please check your orders very carefully before purchasing, particularly the sizing. We also highly encourage you to Contact Us, by email or phone at any time during ordering if you have questions or concerns. We want you to have a happy experience purchasing from us. Thank you for choosing smartCRUTCH! Please read our full Terms & Conditions before placing your order.
