A RMA will be issued upon our receipt of the sales order and invoice number of the goods desired to be returned. Returned goods must be sent in the original shipping container along with the issued RMA from Touch-Plate. The product(s) must be packaged securely to prevent damage during shipment. The purchaser is responsible for freight/damage of the parts.
