South Dade Lighting Shipping Policies

Please be advised that South Dade Lighting cannot ship any merchandise to PO Box addresses.

Standard Ground Shipping - Small Parcel UPS and FedEx Items

South Dade Lighting offers FREE SHIPPING on items able to ship via UPS or Federal Express Ground for orders that are $49.00 or greater. This Free Shipping Offer is applicable only to orders shipping to the US continental 48 states. Actual shipping costs will be incurred for orders shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Canada. Please call 305-233-8020 or email inquiries@south-dade.com for a shipping quote to these areas.
Orders less that $49.00 will incur a standard processing and handling charge of $15.00. Orders cannot be combined for the purposes of this free shipping offer.
What you can expect for Small Parcel shipments...
The high value of many of the products offered by South Dade Lighting require a signature upon delivery even for UPS and Federal Express shipments. If delivery without a signature is desired, it is suggested that you a leave a signed note on the door with the appropriate instructions for the driver. Failure to do so may result in the item(s) being returned to the shipper by the carrier. Additional charges for this return shipment will be incurred by the customer.

Truck Freight - Large & Oversized Items

Large items, such as large chandeliers and floor lamps, may ship via truck freight. Orders containing items that must ship via truck freight will incur a $65 surcharge for EACH ITEM that must ship via freight. Items that must ship via truck freight are notated by the manufacturer based on the size and packaging of the product in question. Items that must ship via truck freight are marked as such on the individual product pages.
What you can expect for Large Item Truck Freight shipments...
Items shipped via truck freight are delivered to curbside or driveway only. Most carries will contact you to set up a delivery time, usually a 2-4 hour appointment window during business hours. As such, it is the customer's responsibility to provide an accurate contact phone number for the delivery address. If you require special assistance with a Truck Freight delivery, additional services like inside delivery and lift gate are available at an additional charge. Please contact a representative at 305-233-8020 for a quote on these services.
At the time of delivery, the driver will require that you inspect the condition of the shipment and sign the delivery receipt. Be sure to note on the receipt ANY and ALL visible damage to the packaging of your item(s). Noting the condition of the delivery is the responsibility of the customer - not the driver.
If the carrier is unable to contact the customer, the customer will then be responsible for any storage fees or freight charges back to the shipper. See our Return Policies for full details.

South Dade Lighting Delivery

At the discretion of South Dade Lighting, professionally trained and experienced personnel from South Dade Lighting will deliver merchandise free of charge to customers deemed to be within the trading area of our South Dade Lighting showroom.
Delivery by South Dade Lighting will be scheduled by appointment only. South Dade Lighting delivery does not include inside delivery or any installation services. South Dade Lighting strongly suggests hiring a licensed electrical contractor for all lighting installations.
Orders less that $49.00 will incur a standard processing and handling charge of $15.00. Orders cannot be combined for the purposes of this free shipping offer.

In-store Pickup (South Florida Only)

A customer may choose to make a purchase placed online through southdadelighting.net available for pickup through our South Dade Lighting Showroom. If you wish to pick up your purchase at our showroom, your order must be placed by calling 305-233-8020 . If your order is less than $49.00 you will still be responsible for the $15.00 processing and handling fee. Orders that are arranged to be picked up at South Dade Lighting's showroom will be charged in full upon ordering - not when it is picked up.


Shipping Lead Times

South Dade Lighting strives to provide its customers with the most accurate information on product availability using the tools and resources made available both in house and by our manufacturers.
The lead times that are posted on the individual product pages are estimates only. These times are estimated based on the assumption that the item in question is currently in stock with the manufacturer and also based on the manufacturer's typical speed at which orders are processed and shipped.
If your purchase or project is time sensitive, it is strongly suggested that you contact a representative at 305-233-8020 or email inquiries@south-dade.com to inquire about expedited shipping services.
Once your order has processed, you will receive an initial order status email providing you with the initial estimated shipping dates for each item on your order. These shipping dates are estimated based on the availability of the item(s) purchased. If an item you have purchased is made to order or is on back order with the manufacturer, your order status email will reflect this along with an estimated shipping date. Estimated shipping dates are subject to change.
South Dade Lighting is not responsible for any costs associated with shipment delays. South Dade Lighting strongly suggests that any professional services required to install your product(s) not be scheduled until your order has arrived and been inspected.


Damaged & Defective Goods Policy

At South Dade Lighting, we pride ourselves on our customer service. Our number one goal is your satisfaction. We have been a part of the South Florida Community since 1971 and have a large following due to our mission to keep you happy. Here are our return policies. Contact us ASAP with any issues: 305-233-8020

Not working? Defects are covered for 1 year.*
Every item sold by southdadelighting.com comes with a Manufacturer's 1 year warranty that guarantees the electrical functioning of the item. The protection of this warranty is contingent upon the proper installation of the item by a licensed professional.
If an item you have purchased stops working please contact us immediately at 305-233-8020 or e-mail us at inquiries@south-dade.com to report the problem. In most cases an electrically defective product can be replaced quickly and at no charge.
*A Note about Product Finishes on Outdoor Products While our manufacturers warrantee their products up to one year from any electrical defects, they do not guarantee the durability of any product finishes on their outdoor products. Our Manufacturers cannot control for extreme weather conditions (such as high salt content air, acid rain, etc.) that may affect the appearance or durability of a product finish.
What else may be covered? Reimbursement for any electrical work necessary to remove a defective item and install a replacement is at the discretion of the manufacturer and not the responsibility of South Dade Lighting. In all cases, South Dade Lighting will work with the manufacturers to acquire up to 100% reimbursement for additional work due to product defects.

Return Policy ( Please also refer to "Restocking fees")



30 Day Return Policy We understand that the lighting or decor you purchased may not ultimately be what you had in mind and we want to make sure you are happy with the final product. Best of all, we will work with you until you find what you need, saving you time and money.
Also, and unlike many other online retailers who make you deal with ALL the return shipping details, we provide you with pre-paid return shipping labels so all you need to do is get the package ready for pick up. You not only benefit from our reduced shipping rates but if something were to happen in transit we deal with it, not you.
If you would like to return an item that is in "As-New" condition you may return the product at your expense within 30 days of receipt (based on the date the item was delivered).
"As-New" Condition is Steps 1 through 3:
1. Receive Authorization & Instructions To initiate a return, have your order number ready and contact us by: A Customer Experience Representative will review your order and create a Return Case, answering by email any questions you may have as well as providing a return shipping charge estimate.
2. Pack & Ship your item(s)
Once a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number has been issued by the Manufacturer we are in full control of your return. Size matters: 3. Your Return Credit
Upon receipt by the Manufacturer, the item will be inspected for "as new" condition and once confirmed we will process your credit less the actual shipping charges. Important Information to Review While you Wait for Your Credit
To File or Not To File a Dispute

Please do not request a charge back from your credit card company during the return process. Due to the time it takes to resolve charge back disputes, it is usually better to be patient and wait for the return process to run its course. If a charge back has been submitted, we will not be able to credit you for your return until the charge back mediation process has been completed. This process can take up to 90 days. In certain cases, initiating a charge back can void your ability to receive any credit at all.
The Item is not "As-New"
If the item is determined to not be in "As-New" condition we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of up to 75% on top of the return shipping charges.
The Item is Returned Without an RGA
Items returned without an RGA are subject to an automatic 50% restocking fee and based on the item, may be denied.
Exceptions and Items not Eligible for Return
Unfortunately, under certain circumstances items purchased from southdadelighting.net are not eligible for return.
These exceptions and items are as follows: Returning Online Orders to South Dade Lighting's showroom
If you happen to live in the vicinity of South Dade Lighting's showroom you are welcome to return any item ordered through southdadelighting.net to that showroom.
Please note: To ensure a speedy credit, we strongly advise you request prior authorization before visiting the showroom.
Returning the item to a showroom will usually fast track the return process and you can receive your credit in 2-3 business days if not sooner. Please refer to our 30 Day Return Policy above for specific information on how to initiate the return process before you head to the showroom. Restocking Fees

Some of our manufacturers charge restocking fees for the return of undamaged and non-defective merchandise. Although we still have to pay them, we will waive your restocking fee with a new order of equal or greater value.
The individual product pages will indicate if the manufacturer of the item charges a restocking fee and if so, the extent of that restocking fee. These restocking fees are charged by the manufacturer in addition to any shipping deductions that may be incurred in returning an item.
Large Quantity Purchases
When ordering large quantities (6+) of the same item we strongly suggest ordering a single sample for evaluation before you place the full order.
Returns of any item in quantities of 6 or more units will be subject to a return review. Depending upon the item and the manufacturer you may be charged a restock fee or have the return denied.
"Final Sale" Products (aka Closeouts)
There are many items available for purchase at southdadelighting.net that are marked as Closeout Products and are further discounted from their regular low price. These are products that have been discontinued by the Manufacturer and are therefore subject to availability as inventory runs out.
Closeout Details:
Custom and Made-to-Order Products
Through its strong and long lasting relationships, southdadelighting.net is able to offer custom products from top manufacturers

Return Shipping Policies

Small Parcel Items - Shipped by FedEx or UPS
When we notify you of the return authorization (RGA), southdadelighting.net will also issue a prepaid UPS return shipping label via email. This shipping label is to be affixed to the box containing the item to be returned.

When the package is ready for pickup, simply call 1-800-742-5877 to schedule a pick up for the item(s).
Please note: Return shipping labels will be issued with expiration dates 2 weeks from the date of issue and will not be reissued. It is your responsibility to make arrangements for the pickup of the item(s) to be returned in a timely manner.
Shipping Deductions

For items that were delivered via Truck or Freight Liner, we will work with you and the freight company to make arrangements for the retrieval and shipment of the product. It will be your responsibility to have someone physically present at the time the freight company arrives to retrieve the item. Also, the freight company chosen to retrieve your product for return will be at the discretion of southdadelighting.net.
Shipping Deductions
