Returns & Exchanges

  • > Need to exchange an item?
  • > Need to return something?


If you need to exchange a product that doesn’t fit or wasn’t what you thought you needed, no problem. We will gladly exchange any new product for a different size, color, or item. We do NOT charge a restocking fee. You will be charged the cost of shipping for the replacement product being sent back to you. We recommend that you reorder your new size or product now, and then return your incorrect size to us for a credit. This ensures the new product is in stock and is being reserved for you. The new order will ship immediately and a credit will be issued once the return arrives.

Shipping Costs

We utilize real time quotes from our preferred shipping carriers in the interests of providing our customers with the lowest possible prices. We do not consider shipping as an area to generate additional profit or a way to offset our discounted product prices to our customers. In some instances of large orders, multiple boxes may be required and the shipping rates designated in the order may not calculate multiple boxes. We will contact you with any additional shipping before processing the order.

Next Day Air & 2nd Day Air

There are a variety of delivery options that you may select. Please note that the times stated in the delivery description (e.g., “Next Day Air”) only describe the time the carrier indicates it will take to get to you once the carrier has picked up the order. “Next Day Air” does not necessarily mean you will get your equipment the day after you place your order. Hockey World reserves the right to change the shipping method if that means the delivery of the merchandise will take place at or before the time delivery would have occurred under the option you chose. For example, if normal ground delivery would get your merchandise to you in one day and you ordered "2nd Day Air" we reserve the right to employ normal ground shipping.

Warranties, Guarantees & Offers

All items are guaranteed under the manufacturer's limited warranty. Warranty covers defective material or defective workmanship. Abuse, improper care or improper use is not covered by warranty. Items must be seen by our inspection department before any decision can be made. Some warranties are covered directly through the manufacturer so be sure to call before sending any product. Some manufacturers may choose to repair rather than replace an item. Items sent back to the manufacturer for repair or evaluation may take 4-6 weeks. On all warranty issues, the consumer is responsible for shipping cost to and from our location.
