If the purchaser refuses the return shipment of unauthorized returned goods from JB&A or returns the unauthorized items back to JB&A a second time without JB&A’s prior authorization, the purchaser agrees to relinquish all rights, the title and waives all claims against JB&A for credit related to such products.

Stock Balance Returns with Prior written authorization ONLY

  • End-of-life product cannot be returned.
  • Credit will be issued at current selling price or original purchase price which ever is lower, for use towards a future purchase with JB&A.

Defective Returns

Every effort will be made to channel defective and DOA returns directly to the manufacturer. JB&A will refer the customer to the manufacturer direct versus issuing a RMA for return to JB&A. JB&A will assist in expediting a response from the manufacturer. Manufacturers’ policies are subject to change without notice. Please consult with your sales representative during sale for the return guidelines.

All products returned as DOA or defective to JB&A will be tested; any product found not to be defective or DOA will be subject to return to the customer, at the customer’s expense, and a processing fee will be assessed.

If you have a DOA or defective product, please contact customer care team at 1-800-398-5652. A representative will then direct you on how to obtain technical support for your product. Often times the technical support call will assist you in reviewing the manufacturer’s installation procedures to rule out incompatibility. The call can help you to avoid the time and expense of returning a product.

JB&A will not issue a replacement or exchange product. Any product needed to replace a defective product must be ordered through JB&A by customer with a new and valid customer purchase order. JB&A will not place an order on customer’s behalf for a replacement shipment.

JB&A is not responsible for freight cost associated with defective products.
