Manufacturer's Quality Guarantee
1. What is covered?
For 1 year from the date of purchase on non motorized decoys and 6 months on motorized decoys and components, Higdon Decoys, Inc. covers any problem in its merchandise caused by manufacturer’s defect. This manufacturer’s quality guarantee applies to both factory direct and dealer sales. This includes the fit of parts, durability of the plastic, and self-righting ability of weighted keel decoys. Paint will not flake or fall off the decoy. Normal wear and tear to include smudges and scratches to the paint are excluded. Damage caused by abuse or neglect of a decoy is never covered.

2. What is not covered?
Higdon Decoys, Inc. will not pay for shipping from the customer to the company under any circumstances. Normal wear and tear on a decoy is not covered by this warranty. A decoy that is shot or otherwise damaged after purchase obviously is not covered by this policy. Scraped, scratched or dented decoys are not covered under our policy. Factory seconds are sold “as is” and never covered by warranty.

3. How long does coverage last?
This guarantee is for the stated time period starting from the date of purchase. The customer should provide a copy of the original sales receipt to verify the purchase date.

4. What will Higdon Decoys, Inc. do?
At our discretion, we will either repair or replace the defective product or offer a refund. If we decide to replace the item and that exact model should be unavailable, we will replace it with an available item of like value and function. If our examination should reveal that the returned item is not defective due to manufacturer’s defect, we will contact the customer to get further instructions. In such a case the customer has the option of paying for the cost of shipping the product back to the customer or directing us to dispose of it. Should the customer fail to respond, after 45 days we will dispose of product abandoned with us.

5. How to get service?
Follow the instructions published in item #4 of the 30 Day Inspection Period above.

Limited 30 Day “No Hassle” Returns
1. What is covered?
For the purpose of the “No Hassle” return policy, the “customer” is the party named on the original invoice from Higdon Decoys. Specifically, this means that for decoys sold to a dealer, the dealer will be considered the customer for this portion of our warranty. For decoys sold directly to a retail customer by Higdon Decoys, that retail customer will be considered the customer for this section of the warranty. Our “No Hassle” return policy applies ONLY to the “customer” named on the original Higdon invoice and applies for 30 days after the date of purchase.

2. What will Higdon Decoys do?
Should the customer be dissatisfied for any reason with the purchase or a portion of the purchase, Higdon Decoys will replace the product or allow the customer to return the product for a refund of the purchase price of the merchandise. Higdon Decoys will not be responsible for shipping charges.

3. What is not covered?
Product purchased through a dealer is not covered by our “No Hassle” return policy. The dealer’s customer should ask the dealer about the dealer’s return policy. Product damaged through negligence or misuse by the customer is not covered. Product must be properly packaged during return so that it is not damaged during shipping. 35% of the original purchase price will be deducted to cover damages caused by improper packaging. Refunds cover only the original purchase price and applicable sales tax. Shipping costs are not covered.
