FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS & VIDEOS

Watch as our most frequently asked questions are explained by Chris in the video list below.  Don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos.  

  1. Do you charge a restocking fee?

For non-defective returns, we charge a 15% restocking fee and shipping will not be refunded.  If your purchase included free shipping, the shipping charge will be deducted from your refund.  Your refund will not be processed until after we receive and inspect your product return.

For a purchased product exchange, no restocking fee will be charged. 

  1. What do I need to include in my return package?

When packaging your product for a return, remember to include your packing slip and the Return Slip (RMA) provided by our sales engineer during your return request. 

Remember to always keep your tracking number so we have a reference that your package arrived safely in our facility. 

  1. What should I look for to find the correct power connection?

If you are looking at a plug, locate the numbers or NEMA term on the base of the plug to help figure out what you need to connect to it.  Then look at the outlet or power source to find the NEMA term you are trying to power from. 

You may have read a NEMA configuration or code on an adapter which includes a P or an R after a set of numbers and letters (Example: ASL1420R).  NEMA codes are the standard industry electrical connection language used in the U.S.  Some people get confused by the P and the R or by the relationship between the two of them.

Read more about this topic in our blog post: Relationship Between the Plug and Receptacle (P and R).  

  1. Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we ship anywhere worldwide.  If you are located in Canada, you can order from www.ACWORKS.ca for local Canadian shipping and order pick up. 

  1. Will I pay duty tax on an international order?

Yes, duty tax is charged by your government when you order something outside of your country, not by our company.  There is no way to avoid this charge.  If located in Canada, you can order from www.ACWORKS.ca for local Canadian shipping and order pick up. 

  1. What is the shipping charge for international packages?

For any international package, if you have questions about shipping costs, contact our customer service department.  You will need to provide your shipping address so we can better help you with shipping charges.  

  1. What is your shipping window?

Our shipping window will depend on where you purchased our products and how long it takes your payment to post.  Amazon, Home Depot, eBay, and Jet are some of our other sales channels.  These sales channels will not release an order for us to ship until payment clears.  Once your payment clears and we receive your order, it will be shipped out of our warehouse within 24 business hours.   

Our warehouse is closed on weekends and major holidays.  We only ship on business days.  For orders received prior to 3 pm on any business day, with ground shipping, your order will ship out within 24-hours. 

Expedited orders received before 3 pm, on any business day, your order will be shipped on the same day. 

For orders requiring next day or 2nd day shipping and received prior to 5 pm on any business day, your order will ship out the same day. 

The exception to our shipping turnaround times, are situations beyond our control.  Such situations may include the event of extreme weather or holidays and/or any reason for our shipping companies to fall behind schedule. 

  1. What is the best way to get customer service?

There are multiple ways to reach our customer service department.  We accept e-mail, phone, and text messaging 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.  We also have chat available on both websites www.ACWORKS.com and www.ACWORKS.ca

  1. How do I suggest a topic for you to discuss on your blog, YouTube, or social media platforms?

Whether you are a new or returning customer to our blog, YouTube, or social media platforms, we want to talk about the topics you want to read about.  We cannot provide the best customer service if we don’t know the questions you have.  You can ask questions about our products, services, and marketing. 

If you have a question about the blog post you read or a question that will elaborate on a new topic or previous post, please leave your questions in the comments under the blog, video, or post and we will resolve them. 

If you have a topic you want to see us address, leave your topics in our Marketing Manager, Stephanie’s email and she will get back to you as soon as possible about when we will address this topic, or if we already have, how you can find it.  If you have any video inquiries, please reach out to Chris about your ideas.
