Return & Refund Policy

Edvotek’s goal is to provide safe, reliable, and easy-to-use products to our customers that go above and beyond expectations. However, we understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances occur and a customer may wish to return an item.

• We accept returns within 30 days of purchase. Items returned must be unused, in original packaging, stored appropriately according to individual storage requirements, and include all parts and accessories. An item cannot be returned if it is in unsalable condition, unless it was damaged during initial shipment. Equipment can be returned if it is defective directly “out-of-the-box.” Customers are responsible for return shipping unless the item is being returned due to shipping damage or a defect. It is recommended that all items received be inspected immediately upon receipt for damage or irregularities. Only items directly purchased from Edvotek are eligible for a refund, replacement, or credit. Items purchased through third-party vendors are eligible for a replacement.
