Our Overall Goal
Our goal is help find the best solution to your mobility needs. We want to work with you if a purchased item doesn’t solve your issue the way you were expecting it to. In most cases, if we can find a different product of equal or greater value as a better solution, we can waive any restocking fees by doing a one-time exchange within 3 days of receipt. The following restrictions would apply: If the original item is used, damaged, is in a smoking environment or around strong odors, if it was a special order that is not returnable per our guidelines below, or is outside of our store delivery area. The initial delivery fee / shipping charge would be nonrefundable and a 2nd delivery / exchange fee would be charged.
Our goal is to ensure that you select the best product for your needs. However, you may receive a product that doesn't work for you. To keep our online pricing competitive and offer quality, prompt service after the sale, cancelled / returned orders are subject to the following fees:

Cancelled or Refused Orders
If you contact us within 3 business days of placing order to cancel, you will receive a 100% refund unless your order has already shipped or was ordered as an urgent or rushed order. If the order has already shipped or was a rush order, our normal Return Criteria will apply.
If you cancel after 3 business days and the order has not shipped, a 10 % fee of the full purchase price will be applied + any manufacturer cancellation fees involved. If a delivery / shipment is refused, our normal Return Criteria applies and the customer will be responsible for any shipping / refusal related fees.
If a product has not been delivered / picked up within 60 days of the purchase, Southern Mobility reserves the right to cycle that product(s) back into inventory for sale. Once the customer scheduled delivery or pickup, the items will then be reordered or pulled from inventory. If the items have not been picked or delivered after 90 days, a store credit will be issued to the customer for the full purchase amount.
Damaged items / property must be reported to Southern Mobility within 72 hours of delivery. Southern Mobility is not financially responsible to fix or replace items / property if reported after the 72 hours window. If an item is picked up from our store, any damage not noted at pickup will not be Southern Mobility’s responsibility to repair / replace. If the customer requests Southern Mobility move any furniture inside the home as a courtesy and something is damaged (furniture, house, etc.), it is not Southern Mobility’s responsibility to fix / repair any damages done.

Return Shipping Costs and responsibilities
Unless Southern Mobility was at error with your order, return shipping / freight is your responsibility.

Please be sure to carefully follow all return-shipping instructions that are included with your Return Authorization number. Southern Mobility is not responsible for shipping damages or shipping delays on returns.
Repairs and Return Limitations Repairs:
Incontinence issues can cause serious safety issues and severe damages to any product. To protect yourself: Always use incontinence products such as under garments and additional incontinence pads, that are checked and changed regularly. If repairs are needed, we reserve the right to refuse service to protect our employees. Warranties do not cover damages to parts (fabric, frame, motors, etc.) from incontinence, period.
If incontinence is detected on any product, we reserve the right to void any labor / parts warranty on the product. Refunds will not be issued for any extended warranties previously purchased.
Returns: We want all of our customers to receive brand new products that are new and without signs of use. Based on this, we cannot take any returns of products that
1. show signs of use when incontinence is detected
2. if there is a general odor of urine in the home from the user or from pets.
Once your return is received, we will issue a credit in the same manner as the purchase. Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for your credit to be processed. If your item is defective or was damaged in shipping, please call us or email us at the email and phone number above. We will arrange for the item to be replaced promptly.
