We ship glass to all points on the globe. Our packing
procedures are one of the hallmarks of our business.
1000Bulbs.com takes great pride in our very low
incidence of breakage while in transit. In order for a
damage claim to be successful, 1000Bulbs.com must be
notified of the damage within one week from date of
receipt. A photo may be required to file a claim with carrier.
As the shipper,1000Bulbs.com will file the claim on the customer’s behalf and arrange for a refund or replacement upon assessment of the amount of actual
damage. The package must be received and inspected by
the customer and not refused under any circumstances.
If replacement is required on product that can only
be shipped in case quantities (such as many fluorescent
tubes), then a replacement order for a full case must
be processed and charged less the amount of the actual
damage with no additional shipping charges.
If the total amount of the product for replacement due
to damage or defective is less than $25, a refund will
be issued to the customer as opposed to replacement(s).
Shipping small, single item packages greatly increases
the percentage risks for damage during transit. After
30 days, the customer is responsible for the shipping
cost of warranty replacement(s).

five to seven business days. Refund credits can be

be made at least once and before a company refund check
will be sent to the purchaser. The company check
process can delay the time taken to receive the refund.
