Cancellations and Changes

If you need to cancel or make changes to an order you must contact us within 24hours from the time that you placed the order at 1-888-688-2485 or by email here.  Some orders ship the same day, so we need to know as soon as possible. Calling in or requesting a cancellation does not guarantee your order can be cancelled or changed as it may have already been picked or shipped by ModernistLighting.com or the manufacturer.

Defective Products

Please keep in mind that defective goods (those with factory defects, missing parts or other problems originating prior to shipment) are handled differently than damaged goods (which are damaged in shipping). We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that quality production and inspection procedures are in place, but sometimes defects do occur. We work with you to resolve these issues, but you must report any product defect within 30 days of receiving your order.  If an item is received by you and is deemed defective by Modernist Lighting, you will receive a replacement of the same item within 45 days at no cost to you. Modernist Lighting will have the defective product picked up at no cost to you (the item must be in its original packaging). DEFECTIVE PRODUCT MAY NOT BE RETURNED FOR REFUND, REPLACEMENT ONLY.

Damaged Shipments

Obvious Freight Damage
Unfortunately, fragile items are sometimes damaged in shipping. If by some chance, your item arrives with obvious freight damage, you must refuse the shipment at time of delivery and note the damage on the bill of lading. We will then order and ship a replacement for you. We will charge you for the replacement at the originally quoted price and credit you upon the return of the original. If you sign for the shipment without reporting any damage you are responsible for all damages and must make any claims with the shipper. Please make sure that you inspect all packages before you sign for them.

If you fail to report obvious freight damage to the carrier prior to signing for the shipment, neither you nor we have any recourse.

Concealed Freight Damage
We ask that you fully inspect all products immediately upon delivery receipt and furnish photos of any product that is damaged along with the packaging.  Concealed freight damage must be reported within 7-10 days upon delivery.
