Yes. We provide expedited shipping at an extra charge. If you require expedited shipping, call us toll free at (866) 476-5101 to place your order, as our online ordering doesn’t currently allow you this option.

Can I change my shipping address after I have already submitted my online order?

Once you have submitted your order, we quickly work to process and ship your purchase to you. The window is small, but if you call our offices we are able to change the address as long as it has not already been processed. Please be sure of your shipping address before submitting your order.

What happens if I receive a different item than what I ordered?

Call us toll free at (866) 476-5101. Depending on the product ordered, you may be issued an RMA # and asked to return the item in its original packaging and condition, along with the RMA# listed on a copy of your invoice. We will pay all shipping costs for your return.
We will also pay all shipping costs associated with sending the correct item to you and will do our best to get the correct order to you as quickly as we can.

What happens if I discover I ordered the wrong item after I received my order?

Complete our RMA form online at www.generalfilters.com (found by clicking on "returns" at the top of our web page).   If a return is approved, you will be issued an RMA # and asked to return the item in its original packaging and condition. The RMA# must be included on the outside of your package, and inside on a copy of your invoice / original purchase receipt.
During the call you may also place an order for the correct item. At that time you will be asked to pay for the new item and shipping costs.
Once we have received your return, we may perform tests to be sure it is in good working order and its exterior unblemished. Once the item is determined to be in good working condition and unblemished, we will issue a refund (generally, within 14 days after receipt of your return).
Depending on the condition of the packaging and item, we reserve the right to charge up to a 20% restocking fee. Please be sure to review your cart online carefully before submitting your order.
