ADOEBIKE.IT works very hard to ensure that you receive your products with the best quality. We want to be responsible and fair to you as well. Here are some exceptions that there may be no fee incurred to you if you choose to apply for a return/exchange.
1. Items damaged during transport
(1) Although we take every reasonable precaution to ensure that products are well packaged, damage may occur during shipment from our warehouse to your destination.
(2) Box Damage: Shipping large items across the country may incur some scratches around the box, which is normal for all shipping companies. The purpose of the box is to ensure that the unit inside is well protected. If your products are damaged in transit:
Refuse delivery and have the driver note the reason for refusal as "damaged".
If you are unable to refuse the damaged shipment or if shipping damage is hidden, please notify us and the shipping company immediately.
Damage to the shipment must be reported to the shipping company and to us within 7 days of receipt of the shipment.
Take photos of the damage and ask the transportation company for confirmation or a claim number.
Open a support ticket with ADOEBIKE.IT describing the damage, including photos, video and confirmation number of the transport company. Do not throw away the original packaging.
2. Return of products for warranty claims
Your ADO product (purchased on the website or through an authorized dealer) has a 1-year limited warranty that covers parts due to manufacturing defects.
If a manufacturer's defect occurs during the warranty period, ADOEBIKE.IT will cover the costs for the returned unit to be shipped to us for repairs.
3. Exchange: Sending a replacement unit after the return of the returned unit
We are more than willing to ship the replacement bike as quickly as possible once the returned unit comes back to us. However, please understand that the process will take some time. If you are at our physical ADOEBIKE.IT, we are more than willing to expedite the process almost instantly. Shipping takes time and we have no control over transit time.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES - EXPLAINED
At the expense of convenience and customer satisfaction, we offer free shipping on orders of our products.
However, shipping is actually not free, ADOEBIKE.IT absorbs the shipping costs and pays them on your behalf. This means we take returns very seriously. 1 trip shipping of an electric bike (a battery powered product), will cost up to $150 per trip.
Also, we do not sell returned products. There is a lot of work involved in a returned product, we have to inspect the entire returned bike inside and out. This does not even include the cost of handling, repairing or servicing all of these issues.
We will not charge you for all of these additional fees because our goal is to provide top-notch customer service and support. To keep it fair to you and to us, all we ask is that you cover any third party costs incurred such as shipping and taxes. (If you choose to do a return/exchange)
Please be fair to us. We are just human beings working behind the scenes and all day long. We sincerely try to do a good job serving every motorcyclist. Your satisfaction and trust are extremely important to us.
How will I receive my refund?
We will make the refund using the same payment method you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any expenses as a result of the refund, except as described above.
