How do I process a return?

Ensure you have read our return policy below before proceeding. Please submit a return request by completing the Boardcave Returns Form Here. Once the form has been completed, a customer support member will review the information provided and a confirmation email with the return address will be sent to you within 1-2 business days.

What is your return policy?

We try to make our returns process as seamless as possible. However, there are some general rules and guidelines to follow to ensure we can process your return request as efficiently as possible.

All returns must be received within 30 days of purchase and in a brand new, unused condition with original packaging (including tags). All returns must be free from marks, stains, scratches and rips. If not, the return may not be accepted (unless faulty or damaged). All refunds, exchanges and store credits are subject to product inspection. At this stage, all return shipping fees are the responsibility of the customer, (unless faulty, damaged or the incorrect product has been received).

If you have any questions that are not listed on this page please leave us a message on live chat and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

International Shipping FAQ's

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we ship to the vast majority of countries. Shipping fees are automatically calculated at checkout. The fee is based on quotes that are provided by our partner freight companies. In rare cases, the location of the shipment does not specifically match the quote on the checkout page. If an order is placed and there is a discrepancy between the shipping fee and the actual shipping cost, a Boardcave team member will promptly contact you.

How much is shipping to my country?

If you do not see your country listed in the drop down box of locations at checkout, please leave us a message on live chat and we’ll be happy to do a shipping quote for you.

Are import taxes and duties included in the purchase price?

The short answer is no. International customers may be required to pay any duties and taxes upon arrival of their items.
