Policies & Procedures

Here you will find answers to our most frequently asked questions.

What is the difference between Scratch & Dent, Open Box & Refurbished? 

Scratch & Dent - Means that the product is in more or less new condition, has never been used but that the product and packaging is not in perfect condition and that there are noticeable blemishes on the product and/or packaging.

Open Box - Means that the product was shipped to a customer, they opened it up and realized after using it less than 2 or 3 times that they no longer wanted the product and shipped it back. This means it's in like new condition and not used more than a handful of times.

Refurbished - Means that there was some sort of defect or issue with the product and we needed our technical team to fix the problem so that it is now usable again. All refurbished products are tested before leaving the warehouse to ensure they are in working order.

Are any brand new products on SolarClearout.com?

Receiving Shipments (How to handle damages) 

When your order arrives - thoroughly inspect packaging and goods right away. In the RARE chance there's any visible damage - it is important that you mark this on the way bill/delivery receipt with the delivery person (if possible). If not, simply take pictures of how your products arrived. 

If you're not home when your shipment arrives (generally for smaller orders) and you see it's arrived damaged - again, it is very important that you take pictures right away and contact the shipping carrier directly (FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS etc) in order to submit a damage claim.

From there, please contact us or respond to this e-mail and include the images and any other information we may need. If you have received a damaged item, please make sure you have all the necessary and relevant information so that we can help you properly.

*KEEP ORIGINAL PACKAGING* - We always suggest hanging on to ALL of your original packaging.

Receiving Shipments (Freight and Oversize) 

The majority of our orders ship via standard carriers (Fed-Ex, UPS, DHL, USPS) etc. However, depending on your order, you could have larger or oversize items which will require a special shipping service like freight. 


We will gladly cancel orders within the first 24 hours. If it's been more than 24 hours and/or your order has shipped, we will work with you to get your products back with minimal cost to you.
