Special Orders and orders in which special pricing is given are non-cancelable from the time they are placed. By default, a store credit for future purchase(s) will be issued for all canceled orders. Should you desire a cash refund, a Cancellation Fee of 12% will be applied to the refunded amount. Please feel free to contact our Customer Support Team should you have any questions about the items you are ordering. We want your transaction to be as smooth as possible.

For orders within the 48 U.S. Contiguous States and with a pre-tax sub-total of less than $99, PlumbTile charges a shipping fee of $19.99. For all other orders, with some exclusions (usually for heavyweight items and other circumstances) PlumbTile provides FREE shipping by UPS Ground serving the 48 Contiguous States in the U.S.
For orders outside the 48 Contiguous States, a shipping charge will be calculated based on the delivery location, weight of the product, as well as additional factors such as crating and foaming. Due to certain system limitations shipping charges do not show up at the time of checkout. Instead, a customer service representative will contact customers by phone and/or e-mail to confirm the shipping charge prior to processing the credit card payment for the original order. For items that are shipped by common carrier, we can provide curbside delivery only.
For orders in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, outside continental US and Canada, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a shipping quote.
Certain items, such as tubs, toilets, basins, sinks, mirrors, mirror cabinets, and tile are shipped by common carrier. These are usually shipped directly from the manufacturer. Allow a 5-7 working-day delivery time for common carrier deliveries, unless requesting expedited or rush deliveries.
Expedited Orders and Rush Delivery:
If you would like to expedite your order and rush deliver a product, please email us (email@example.com) to inquire about product lead time and availability. If an item is in stock at PlumbTile, it will usually ship the same day. If it is not in stock, we may be able to have it shipped directly to you from the manufacturer as soon as it becomes available, or we can arrange to have it delivered to you as soon as we receive it.
We collect sales tax on items purchased at PlumbTile for deliveries to these states: Colorado, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington.
We hope that your order arrives safely and that you are satisfied with your purchase. However, please remember that when the order arrives it is your responsibility to ensure that the product has not been damaged during shipping by the freight company. Inspect the box for external damage, remove the packaging and inspect the contents for any physical damage in the presence of the delivery driver. If there is any damage, visible or not, you must indicate such on the delivery receipt. When you sign the delivery ticket and do not note any damage, the unit becomes your property.
Again, please take the time to inspect the delivery and if there is any damage be sure to note it on the delivery ticket. If the damage is severe enough to render the product inoperable or unusable, please refuse the shipment and contact us immediately.
All products are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty as well as any other warranty required by law. Each product description page includes the general warranty information for each manufacturer when you click on “Learn more about a Manufacturer”.
The current manufacturer’s warranty replacement policy does require that a refundable deposit be made in order to provide the new part. Such deposit is refunded once the credit is acknowledged by the manufacturer. Warranty replacements are subject to certain fees, which depend on the manufacturer honoring the replacement.
If you have more specific warranty information questions, please contact us.
Because the majority of our products are special order, your credit card will be charged at the time that you place your order. In order to clarify any confusion, this is because we place orders with the manufacturers on your behalf. Once we order the items, we are often unable to cancel or must return and pay a restocking fee. Therefore we consider this charge a “100% deposit”. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact us.
Price Matching Policy
PlumbTile takes pride in offering the best value on bath, shower, kitchen, tile and other home improvement products at the most competitive prices. Whilst we do our best to ensure that we are offering the best pricing once in a while our competitors may offer the same product at a lower price.
We want to know about it!
We promise to do our best to meet or beat any website offering the same products at a lower price - offering you a better value on your purchase, including our first class service.
To provide the PlumbTile Price Match Service, we need to know more about what our competitor is offering:
- Please provide brand and model number. This is to ensure that the items are exactly the same.
- Proof of our competitor’s item price. This might include the URL of the specific product on their website, a faxed quote or an original copy of a printed advertisement.
- Your contact information including name, email, contact phone number and region.
- Unfortunately we can not meet the price of a last-ditch blow-out sale due to bankrupt closeouts and discontinuation of product lines but we can provide infinitely stronger service in the long run!
- All requests for the PlumbTile Price Matching Service must be submitted BEFORE you make your purchase.
- PlumbTile reserves the right to limit the number of items it allows in a specific Price Matching request.
- While we will take the costs of shipping, taxes and import duties into consideration and do our best to work around these costs, shipping, taxes and import duties are not covered by our Price Matching Service.
- The PlumbTile Price Matching Service only covers prices charged on new products. It does not cover any rebate offers.
Some manufacturers have a minimum advertising price (MAP) policy, which means that we cannot advertise discounted pricing and/or we must comply with the manufacturer’s mandated discounted pricing. Although we can’t ADVERTISE certain discounts, we can offer our loyal customers like you, our lowest pricing by simply calling us at: 858-879-0449.
