Before a customer ships a product back to Aydin or Stealth, the customer must obtain a valid RMA number. RMA numbers can be obtained by using our on-line RMA FORM or by completing the PRINTABLE FORM and emailing it back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have received the RMA# please follow the instructions included and ship to the address shown. Please include reference to the RMA# on your paperwork and have it clearly marked on the Shipping Label.
Material received without an authorized RMA Number will be refused or shipped back.
Authorized RMA Numbers will expire 30 days after they are issued.
Only the quantity and material specified on the original RMA request can be returned with the RMA Number issued.
Please package returned products in their original packaging or equivalent to ensure that they will arrive damage free.
We recommend returning products by United Parcel Service, Federal Express, DHL, or another reputable freight forwarder.
