Returns Policy

At Garden Tool Company, we take great pride in the quality and craftsmanship of the products we carry.

"We want you to be happy!"

If for any reason you’re not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for refund, replacement or store credit - provided it is in new condition and in it’s original packaging.

We will honor all manufacturers warranty. This warranty does NOT apply to products where there has been a failure due to misuse, neglect, or accident.

Please inspect your items as soon as possible after delivery. If an item is damaged in shipping, you need to contact the shipper (USPS or FedEx) rather than sending it back directly to us. Please, DO call us or send us an email and let us know about the problem.

Shipping Policy

Probably like you, we hate shipping...at least the costs involved with it! We absolutely look for the least expensive shipping methods that we can find to get your order to you in a timely matter.

You can check the shipping estimate in your shopping cart or table below.

Same Day Shipping! We stock all the products you see on our website and we ship the same (business) day...unless it's late afternoon, in which case your order will ship the next business day.

In the event that we are temporarily out of stock of a product, our software will not allow you to purchase that product until its back in stock. The only exception to this is with Foldit Carts, because of the cost of shipping we drop ship these as we don't want you to have to pay for shipping twice. (They are very fast about shipping them)

Is your order a gift? - If your order is a gift and you would like us to include a card with a note from you, please include your message in the "Gift/Instruction/Comment" box in Step 5 of the checkout.

Economy Shipping (slower) – Orders will take a little longer to get to you and are shipped via FedEx SmartPost and are then handed off to the Post Office for final delivery. These can only be shipped to residential addresses. Transit time is 5-9 days.

Standard Shipping (faster) – Depending on the size of your package, we will ship your order via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx Ground. Transit time is 2-6 days.

Free Shipping on orders over $75.00 (Free shipping on orders over $250 applies to shipments to the contiguous United States only.)

Shipping charges are based on total price of merchandise ordered.

Checkout Policy and Security                                

We accept Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress and Discover cards through Payleap Secure Credit Card Payment Gateway. You may also pay directly from your PayPal account. Taxes will only be charged on orders shipped to the state of Colorado.

We never see your credit card information and it is never saved on our computers!

All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

How do I know if the page I'm on is secure? Good question. The easiest way to see if the page you are entering sensitive information on is to look at the top of your browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc) window and look at address bar. The internet address of the page you are on is shown in that address bar. The page address will start with either "http:// or "https://". If it starts with the "https://" - the one with the "s" in it, you are on a secure page. Here's two examples:

http://www.example.com

https://www.example.com -(This one is secure)

To protect your identity and information, all sensitive data is encrypted  and communicated over a secure connection.
