Our Terms And Conditions

I. Elias Wilf Return Policy

At Elias Wilf, we understand that you are at times faced with overstock issues, ordering errors, and items that need to be returned to the supplier. It is our goal to help things run smoothly. As always, we readily accept returns of uninstalled / unopened items shipped in error by Elias Wilf and reported within 10 days of delivery. However, in all other circumstances, the standard re-stock fee for returnable items to our warehouse is 30%. When you call our Claims representative and indicate your request to return material, you will be notified of this restock fee. For mill returns, every effort will be made to help accommodate your request; however, ultimately it will be the manufacturer’s decision. Where Elias Wilf does receive return approval, we incur a re-stock fee and freight fee to return items to the mill; we simply pass these fees forward to you with no additional up-charge. We try to be fair and we promise to carefully review each situation.

II. Elias Wilf Order Change & Cancellation Policy

At Elias Wilf, we understand that occasionally circumstances cause a need to change or even cancel an order that you have placed. It is our goal to be as helpful as possible in facilitating the necessary changes. However, the key to our being able to accommodate these requests will of course be determined by exactly where the order stands relative to its stage of being processed.

• Elias Wilf Stocking Orders

Any change or cancellation request requires 48 hours notice, prior to ship day.

Elias Wilf begins staging orders within the 48 hour window, and changes inside this time frame are not possible as it would require offloading from truck, repackaging, re-staging, etc., in other words, the order is already in motion.

For requests within the guidelines, contact the Elias Wilf Customer Service Dept.

– Order changes for stocking items will be made immediately, and verified for accuracy
– A cancellation number will be given at time of cancellation (please keep this number handy for easy reference)

• Non-Stocking Special Orders

Any change or cancellation requests generally require notice within 48 hrs of placing an order.

Elias Wilf must forward these requests to the manufacturer to be sure the material is not already inside their shipping window and can be cancelled before we can commit to honoring the request.

For requests within the guidelines, contact the Elias Wilf Customer Service Dept.

– An order change request will be taken, submitted to the manufacturer for inquiry as to the status of order, and request for approval to cancel. If the mill is able to accommodate the request, Elias Wilf will notify account that the cancellation has been made and a cancellation number will be given.

– In the event that the cancellation is not able to be made, the account will be responsible for accepting the order as originally placed.
