Granada Hills Business Machines strives for all of our customers have a pleasant shopping experience, both at the time of purchase as well as once the product is received. However, we ask that you read these policies as well as our FAQs page before ordering so there are not any misunderstandings after your purchase.
Returns: We do not accept any returns or exchanges.
Warranty: All products sold on our website are brand new and covered by the full manufacturers warranty. If you purchase an item which becomes defective after 7 calendar days of your receipt of the product, please follow the instructions in your User Manual to obtain warranty service from the manufacturer.
If you receive a product that is Defective On Arrival (D.O.A.), please notify us within 7 calendar days, and we will issue you a Return Merchandise Authorization (R.M.A.) number. Upon our receipt of the product, we will repair it, or if it cannot be repaired, we will provide you with an identical brand new item on exchange. For items that become defective after this time, please see our Warranty section above.
Shipping Locations: In order to reduce credit card fraud, we will only ship products to the United States and U.S. owned territories. Free shipping advertised on this website will be to the continental United States only, F.O.B. Origin. Sorry, we no longer ship internationally. We do not ship directly to inmates at prisons (see our FAQs for more information.)
Many international customers order products from our website and have them shipped to a United States address provided by a U.S. based shipping service. Our normal shipping rates apply to these transactions, since they are being shipped to a U.S. address. Please be aware that once our shipment has reached it's U.S. destination, we assume no liability if that provider fails to forward the package to you, or should damage occur to the package after it is received by them. Therefore, we urge caution before using one of those services. Also, please ensure that any items you order for shipment through one of these services will work in the country you will receive the product in, as we do not accept any returns. For example, any products that we sell that use electricity are rated 120V 60Hz Type B plug for use in the United States. If you decide to use a transformer to use one of these products, it may not work and may cause damage to the machine. Therefore, if you have a different type of electricity in your country, we strongly advise you not to purchase electrical products from us.
Shipping Carrier: We use USPS and UPS for most shipments. However, at times we may use a different shipping company at our option. In addition, we may opt to use a licensed trucking company for particularly large or heavy orders (i.e. Shredders, multiple Typewriter orders, large machines, etc..)
Time of Shipment: Orders received before 12 PM Noon Pacific Standard Time are normally shipped on the same business day. However, some orders may be delayed one or two business days due to unforseen circumstances.
Shipment Tracking: Tracking numbers will be sent to the email address you provide us on either the shipment date or the following business day.
Receipt of Merchandise: If you do not receive your product in a timely manner, please go to the shipping company website and enter your tracking number. If a problem exists, please contact us at [email protected] so we can help you investigate the reason for the delay. Please include your Order ID number that you received on the receipt we sent you via email immediately after you placed your order. Since packages are shipped FOB Origin, it will be your responsibility to file a claim with the shipping carrier if necessary.

In the event that your item(s) cannot be shipped due to other issues such as inaccurate inventory, discontinued items, shipping closures, or other fulfillment issues, we will contact you at the email/phone number you provide to us on your order to discuss alternatives, such as a compatible item or releasing the authorization hold (thus never charging your order.)
