If an item is 151 lbs. or more, it will be shipped via Truck Freight (on a semi-truck) and you must have the means to unload it from the truck. Expect LTL or truck freight shipments to arrive within 3 to 4 weeks. The shipment MUST BE INSPECTED UPON RECEIPT. The consignee (you or someone you appoint) must completely open and inspect the product.
You will be asked at checkout to agree that you can and will accept truck freight shipping at your shipping address. If you agree to truck freight, but are unable to accept it upon arrival, you will incur return fees.
What if my item shipped via truck freight arrives damaged?
Please note 'Damaged' or “Short” and a brief description of the damage or shortage found on the delivery receipt. Call the Bobcat team, email us photos, and we will ensure a satisfactory outcome.
If the outside packaging has any signs of damage like creases, rips, tears, holes, punctures, crushed in, etc., please send photos of the package and of the products inside. Call the Bobcat team, email us photos, and we will ensure a satisfactory outcome.

Why do I need to inspect the shipment?
It is VERY IMPORTANT that the freight is inspected before you sign the delivery receipt. By signing the receipt and accepting the shipment, you are releasing the freight company and all of its affiliates of any liability for damages that are not reported on the delivery receipt at the time of delivery.
If you discover damage after the freight driver leaves, email Bobcat Parts at email@example.com or call 844-926-2228 or 844-9-BOBCAT within 48 hours so we can report it. We only have a few days to report damage that isn't reported on the delivery receipt and it is a lot harder to win the claim.
Bobcat Company as owner of the Bobcat trademark supports a 30 day return policy. All items returned must be in the original packaging, in new uninstalled condition and you must include a copy of your invoice.
Returns purchased through shop.bobcat.com can be made by filling out the Order and Return Form.
Credit will be issued to the original credit card used to purchase the item. If the incorrect order was an error by the customer, charges for shipping are non-refundable and return shipping fees may apply.

For your protection, we recommend that you use Insured Parcel Post and that you keep all the shipping receipts. All regular freight returns are subject to a restocking fee of 15% of the purchase price. All shipments must be prepaid, COD and freight collect shipments will be refused.
Bobcat Company is not responsible for returned merchandise lost in transit including if a shipment is refused. Bobcat recommends you do not refuse a shipment due to lack of trackability. A credit will be issued when Bobcat receives the part and verifies that its condition is acceptable.
Bobcat Company reserves the right to refuse any returns if they do not meet our return requirements. If these requirements are not met, parts will be either scrapped or returned to you at your expense.
Bobcat Dealers are unable to accept returns for online purchases.

Bobcat Company will pay for shipping for core returned to our core facility.
