How to.. Avoid Lighting Restocking Charges

If you want to save aggravation, check the companies restocking policies before you buy. For instance, Yale has a no restocking fee on any in stock merchandise as long as it has not been electrified and is resellable condition. Other reputable companies do as well.

However, most companies do not, and the charges are considerable. 25% restocking plus shipping fees are common. There is no appeal to the Better Business Bureau(which you should check before ordering) or the states Attorney Generals Office, if it is in the stores published policy.

For other tips, I have other posts about other hidden, but avoidable charges that are too common when buying products. You can prepare yourself and save time, money and aggravation by reading through store policies and checking the Better Business Bureau.
