GroBox Reservation Cancellation and Return Policy
When you reserve a GroBox through our online store, we will charge you a reservation fee that will be applied to the final purchase price of your GroBox. As soon as you pay for your reservation, your reservation fee will be applied towards purchasing the materials we need to build your GroBox.
You can cancel your GroBox reservation for a full refund within seven days of paying the reservation fee. After seven days, the reservation fee is non-refundable.
When your GroBox is ready to ship to you, we will charge your remaining balance (the full price of the GroBox, less the reservation fee) to the same payment method you used to pay your reservation fee. Once you have paid the full price of your GroBox and the complete shipping address, we will ship your GroBox to you.
If you wish to cancel your reservation, please contact us at email@example.com to tell us before we ship your GroBox. If more than seven days have passed since you paid your reservation fee, then we cannot refund your reservation fee. If your GroBox has already shipped, then our standard return policy applies – please see above.
If you notice any issues with your GroBox please let us know as soon as possible so we can fix it as quickly as possible. Under our warranty policy (the “Warranty”), we will replace any part that fails within 1 year of delivery, excluding the pH and EC probes (which have a 6 month guarantee).
Pursuant to our Warranty, we promise that your GroBox will be free from manufacturing defects at the time of sale, including all components for 1 year (except for the pH and EC probes, which are guaranteed for 6 months). At our sole election, we will repair or replace failing components or make a pro rata refund of the initial purchase price for the defective portion of the GroBox.
Unfortunately we cannot honor this Warranty if you have modified your GroBox in any way. We spent countless hours designing and engineering every tiny part of the GroBox, so if you alter anything, it’s on you.
We also cannot honor this Warranty if you have not taken proper care of your GroBox. We want to remind you that if you don’t take proper care of your GroBox it will start doing things you won’t like, such as flood your home because roots clogged a pipe, so give your GroBox the attention it deserves or we can’t honor the Warranty.
Determinations regarding whether you have modified your GroBox or failed to maintain it properly and have thereby voided the Warranty will be made by us in our sole discretion.
To file a Warranty claim, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
• Your name;
• Your address;
• Your phone number;
• A detailed description of the defect;
• The purchase date; and
• The delivery date.
Please see below for additional terms and conditions of the Warranty.
