Your satisfaction is our guarantee.

You must be satisfied with your purchase. If not, we will gladly exchange it or refund the cost of the merchandise.

How to return an item:

Step 1.
Call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-528-3430. You will be issued an RA#(Return Number) for any returns or exchanges you want to make.

Step 2.
For your convenience and cost savings, you may request a pre-paid, return shipping label.  Please note, if you do request a pre-paid return label from SWS, and if the merchandise that you're returning is NOT defective or damaged, your pre-paid return label cost will be deducted from your refund.   Attach the label to your package.  Make sure the RA# you were issued is on the outside of the box. Please note, unless there is a manufacturer defect or you were sent something in error, the cost of the shipping will be deducted from your refund.  

Step 3.
Items missing their original packaging are subject to a restocking fee.  For shipments being returned to Southwest Strings using a pre-paid return label, a carrier will be indicated by the representative issuing the Return Authorization number.  Returns being shipped at the responsibility of the customer can be shipped by the carrier of your choice.  However, we recommend that you use a service that is traceable and offers insurance (USPS, FedEx, or UPS).
