UPLIFT Desk Return Policy Exceptions

  • Free Return Shipping is Provided via FedEx: 99% of our desks and other items are shipped via FedEx. Items must be able to ship via FedEx to qualify for free return shipping. If your order requires freight shipping (such as very large items like conference room tabletops, Curved Corner desktops, or 120° desktops) you will be responsible for return freight costs. As you checkout, the Shipping Method section will say “(Free Freight Delivery)” if your order will be shipped via freight
  • Assembly and Installation: These services are non-refundable. If your desk or any other product does not function as it should, please follow our Warranty procedure for troubleshooting or obtaining replacement parts
  • Expedited Shipping: Any expedited shipping cost (i.e. next day or 2nd day shipping) is non-refundable
  • Volume Orders: We do not accept returns of orders that include four or more of the same item. If you plan on ordering four or more of one particular item, we recommend ordering just one initially to ensure you are satisfied before ordering the rest. If you would like to order four or more desks, can also visit our Free Space Planning page for assistance by one of our space planning consultants
  • Made-To-Order: Custom Solid Wood desktops and Custom Laminate desktops are made to order and custom cut just for you. These custom products cannot be returned, but all other items on your order, such as desk frames and accessories, can be returned (barring any other exception). Check out all of our special order solid wood species in person prior to purchasing by ordering a Special Order Solid Wood Sample Kit and then return it for a full refund when you are ready to order. If you are still not sure you are ready for a special order solid wood desktop or if you are in a hurry, consider one of our popular in-stock solid wood desktop options which ship the same day they are ordered. These solid wood desktops can be viewed on our UPLIFT Standing Desk page along with all other desktop materials that ship same day
  • Stocked Desktop Samples are not returnable. Keep the samples as a reference for your next UPLIFT desk purchase or share them with your friends. In order to keep prices as low as possible on these large, high-quality samples, and to ensure each customer receives brand-new, unscuffed samples, they are not returnable. The wood (and bamboo) thick samples are high quality and have substantial material and production costs
  • Open box, clearance, showroom display, and promo items are not returnable or exchangeable
  • Extended Warranty is non-refundable
  • We do our best to work with our customers when an entire order is marked delivered by the shipping carrier but reported missing. In these cases, we are happy to send a replacement order once we complete our inquiry with the shipper, but we are not able to offer returns on these orders due to potential fraud. If your order is marked delivered but you haven’t received any packages, please reach out to our customer service team for assistance
