Shipping & Delivery
Most orders ship within 48 hours of receiving cleared funds excluding orders placed during the summer season. Freight shipments will be assessed processing time based on order size and transportation company availability. Please refer to current processing times available when selecting shipping method in checkout.
Shipping is tail gate, requiring customer to unload from truck and into building. Lift gate delivery is available for an additional fee while inside delivery is not an offered service. Please remember to inspect your order at the time of delivery. Do not throw away any of the original packaging until inspection is completed. Any missing parts or damages must be signed on the bill of lading and reported to customer service at 1-855-687-3927 within 3 business days of delivery. All quotations are for tailgate delivery unless otherwise noted.
Orders shipped through freight companies will usually require contact from the transportation company prior to delivery. Should the transportation company be unable to contact you within 48 hours of your order being ready for delivery, most will begin assessing storage fees which cannot be waived. You will not receive your order until those fees are paid.
Should your order be returned due to continued failure to contact you, you will be charged all assessed shipping charges and storage fees. Please make sure to provide School Excess Inc. with direct phone numbers and e-mails where you are readily reachable to avoid such situations.

Our items are pre-owned and many people have a varying idea of what that consists of. Shipping can be expensive so if you're not sure about color, size or condition, please ask. Our associates will strive to provide you with as much information as possible. Review all orders prior to payment and verify that merchandise is correct and valid. We want to help make sure your purchase is exactly what you want the first time.
CERTIFIED REFURBISHED (RF): An item that has been restored to working order and certified by School Excess. This means the item has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and brought back to like new condition. It may have some signs of cosmetic wear (light scratches/scuffs - no more than 3 inches) and blemishes but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may or may not be in original packaging.
School Excess does not currently extend any warranty beyond the 3-business day return policy or the 14-day extended policy for electronics. We do, however, attempt to retain extra replacement parts and accessories of our merchandise and will be happy to ship those parts for the cost of shipping to our customers during either the time of your order or during our return policy period if they are available. Any orders for extra parts after our return policy period will require payment by the customer including the cost of shipping. Merchandise may or may not be under manufacturer warranty but that is up to the customer to verify with the manufacturer.
Items shipped through freight companies will usually require contact from the transportation company prior to delivery. Should the transportation company be unable to contact you within 48 hours of your order being ready for delivery, most will begin assessing storage fees which cannot be waived. You will not receive your order until those fees are paid. Should your order be returned due to continued failure to contact you, you will be charged all assessed shipping charges and storage fees. Please make sure to provide School Excess Inc. with direct phone numbers and e-mails where you are readily reachable to avoid such situations.
You are responsible for inspecting your merchandise when it is delivered. If the shipment arrives in a distorted packaging (with broken or no shrink wrap, torn straps and or appear to be out of place) you should call us immediately to receive the necessary instructions for moving forward, take pictures and sign the Bill of Lading as damaged. If the shipment is incorrect from the issued invoice, Request the delivery driver to wait until the situation is resolved.
If you are unable to reach us at the time of delivery, If damaged please sign for the delivery, making sure to note "DAMAGED" on the Bill of Lading (the shipping form presented at time of delivery). Make sure to obtain a copy of the Bill of Lading with the driver’s name and signature acknowledging that the item was delivered damaged. Make sure to also note what the damage was to the best of your ability; such as cracks, broken seats, etc. If possible take and send pictures of the damage to allow us and the transportation company a better idea of the situation.
There will also be situations whereby you do not have enough time to fully inspect the shipment or the order is delivered while you are not available and received by your appointee. It is your responsibility to fully inspect your merchandise within 3 business days of delivery. Electronic items such as computers and SMART Boards have a 14-day extended policy. If you find you have a problem with damage or an incorrect shipment, you must contact us during this period. We cannot be held responsible for damages or incorrect shipments if you wait beyond this period to inform us.
Damaged items will be assessed as to the extent of mechanical damage and a partial refund will be issued if deemed appropriate. We will also send replacement parts if and when available free of charge for as needed repairs during this period for damaged items. Items assessed as a permanent loss to the extent of being unusable will be either replaced at no additional cost or issued a full refund. In most cases, you will have to hold on to the damaged freight until School Excess is able to dispatch another carrier for pickup if available.
If you contact us during the return policy period, any item that does not arrive as ordered (size, color, or features differ from the issued and paid invoice) will be replaced by us at no additional cost to you. Replacements will be based on available inventory. Depending on the order, shipping arrangements may or may not be made to pick up the incorrect items. On certain occasions, you will be responsible in keeping or discarding the wrong items. Standard shipping times will apply. Requests for expedited shipping on replacement orders will incur applicable fees, regardless of the situation.
If you receive your order but you subsequently decide you want or need to cancel, you will be responsible for all assessed shipping charges, even if your original invoice included free shipping. Assessed shipping charges include the cost of shipping to and from your delivery location. A 10% restock fee will also be deducted from your refund. Refunds will typically be issued 3 to 7 business days of delivery of the returned and undamaged item depending on the amount. If you decide to cancel your order prior to shipping, you will be subject to only the 10% restock fee before receiving a refund. Should you wish to do an exchange, you will again be responsible for all shipping costs excluding restock fee but including any price differences in the items you wish to exchange. You must contact us within 3 business days to exchange orders. The customer is responsible to retain a cancelled order for up to 14 business days to allow a transportation company to pick the items up.
