We want your experience of buying a secret door from us to be extremely positive. Sometimes problems can arise during the course of doing business so we’ve set up the following conditions to be as fair as possible to everyone. If you encounter an issue along the way just contact us so we can assist you in finding a solution!
This is a legal agreement between you and hiddendoorstore.com and governs your use of the site and purchase of products as described below.
Order Placement / Exchanges / Returns
You are responsible for reviewing all product information before ordering, such as: sizes, finishes, options, etc.
If you change your mind about a standard sized product purchase prior to shipping – no problem! We can cancel and void your transaction.* Your bank will take a few days to reflect those changes.
All sales of custom-sized secret doors are final. The Hidden Door Store may provide refunds for custom orders cancelled before the start of fabrication.
If you change your mind about a purchase after the door has shipped – just return it for a full refund minus the shipping costs both ways.* Please contact us before arranging to return your product.
If you change your mind about a purchase after the door has been removed from its packaging but prior to installation – you can return it for a refund minus the shipping costs both ways and a 20% restocking fee.* The items must be in new condition. Please contact us before arranging to return your product.
Once a door has been installed or modified in any way it cannot be returned or exchanged.
*If you chose a door with a custom size or finish we cannot accept returns or process refunds.
Damages/ Repairs/ Claims
Although HiddenDoorStore does all it can to ensure the quality of our products there are times that mistakes or errors are made. In such cases, we reserve the right to provide replacement parts for the door, resulting in the door functioning as advertised.
If you accidentally cause damage to your door during installation don’t worry! We can provide replacements parts to you at a discount.
However, please be aware that in order to maintain the much lower price of our pre-designed secret doors on the Hidden Door Store, our technicians do not travel on-site for problems that arise from improper installation or non-compliant walls / floors.
Travel expenses, travel labor time, and accommodations for on-site repairs are not covered under the terms of the warranty regardless of fault and are billed at the standard installation labor rate of $150/hr. HiddenDoorStore does not reimburse for 3rd party costs resulting from warranty repairs such as uninstallation and reinstallation, finish touch-up, paint or drywall repair, storage, etc.
HiddenDoorStore is not responsible for damages resulting from improper storage, in our out of the crating material. The door and its packaging should be promptly moved to a dry and climate controlled environment after it is received.
Two Year Material & Parts Warranty
HiddenDoorStore provides a two-year warranty on all materials and parts of our products. This two year term begins on the day your project ships to you. For example: wood cracks or splits, electronic component failure, or metal fatigue will result in replacement parts being sent to you free of charge. HiddenDoorStore may deem a door beyond repair on a case by case basis. In such instances a replacement product will be provided. The costs associated with installation, finishing, etc. will not be refunded.
HiddenDoorStore will not be liable for any failure by the installer to properly install the products. In some cases, HiddenDoorStore may at its sole discretion, satisfy the warranty by requiring the customer to return the faulty products prior to HiddenDoorStore shipping a new item. Authorization must be obtained before returning any components by reaching out to email@example.com. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that any returned product is properly packaged and crated prior to shipping, regardless of the reason for the return. Clients should retain photographs documenting the condition of the product prior to return shipping and the manner in which it was packed. Damage that occurs during return shipping that resulted from improper packaging or crating will be the responsibility of the client.
Once the item is received and diagnosed, which takes an average of 1-2 weeks, the replacement item will be returned to customer using HiddenDoorStore’s standard shipping procedures.
Installation and Assembly
All of our secret doors have been designed to achieve ideal gaps of 1/8″ or smaller when properly installed. Sometimes the gaps are outside of this range and can usually be attributed to installation error or walls that are out of plumb or level. Your results may deviate from our ideal gap conditions accordingly.
In an effort to provide you the simplest installation experience possible, all non-kit doors are assembled and tested before shipment. Some basic carpentry and handyman skills are necessary to install the door at your location. Tools are not included with product. You should seek competent assistance where necessary in assembling and installing the door. This may include a local handyman or contractor. HiddenDoorStore does not guarantee that you will be able to assemble or install the item on your own without the aid of a professional contractor. HiddenDoorStore is not responsible for improper installation, damage to the item, or any other damages resulting from your assembly or installation of the item. HiddenDoorStore is not responsible for damage to person or property due to improper assembly, use, or installation of the item.
All HiddenDoorStore bookcases have a maximum load capacity of 100 LBS.
Shipping, Receiving, and Inspection of Products
The shipping cost includes lift gate service and freight delivery to the property location assuming that adequate access for freight delivery is available. If access to the site is inadequate then the customer may be required to provide an alternate delivery location, pick the freight up at the terminal, or pay for a “white glove” delivery service. Some projects may be too large to safely offload using a lift gate alone in which case the client may be responsible for providing additional manpower or equipment to assist in offloading.
When you receive the shipment thoroughly inspect the packaging for signs of damage!
Follow the procedure below if the shipping crate or item shows damage upon inspection:
List any damage on the trucking company receipt, which is labeled “proof of delivery” or “Bill Of Lading” (“BOL”).
Accept the shipment but DO NOT UNPACK IT.
Within 48 hours or receiving the package, take pictures of the damage and email them along with a description of the damage to contact@hiddenpassageway. Include your order number to assist us, if possible.
A HiddenDoorStore representative will pursue action with the shipping company and advise you on how to proceed on a case by case basis. In some instances we may provide replacement parts while in other circumstances we may file a shipping claim and replace the door entirely.
If you find damage to the door after unpacking don’t continue your installation and contact us immediately. We will request photographs that will help us determine the cause of the damage and provide for spare parts if necessary.
The door and its packaging should be promptly moved to a dry and climate controlled environment after it is received.
Changing Delivery Destination
HiddenDoorStore will not be responsible for extra freight charges incurred if you change the delivery destination while the shipment is en-route. There is no guarantee that you will be able to change the delivery destination while the shipment is en-route. Extra freight charges may apply and will be your responsibility for any change of the delivery destination provided in your initial order.
Estimated Delivery Times
HiddenDoorStore provides estimated delivery time for convenience, and you agree not to rely on the delivery date, which is an estimate based upon our historical delivery times and information provided by third-party shipping companies.
Tracking information will be provided within 24 hours from the time the product ships.
We work with the highest caliber shipping companies; however, we cannot be liable for shipping company errors. In such instances we will do our utmost to correct the issue.
International shipping quotes are available. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a rate quote to your country.
Shipping costs for international destinations are an estimate only and typically do not include duties, taxes, or inland ground transportation from the port of entry.
All quotes given by HiddenDoorStore representatives do not include brokerage fees or taxes. Any other requirements imposed by your local government for the importation of wood or stains or any of the products you wish to buy are your responsibility to investigate. If any issues occur in your home country due to these issues, HiddenDoorStore will not be responsible for cancelation, return or refund. All Products sold internationally are sold as is. All warranty claims will be handled on a case by case basis. HiddenDoorStore does not offer refunds for international sales. You acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility, and that HiddenDoorStore will not be held liable, to know the rules and regulations of any country outside of the United States regarding taxation, customs, the importation of commodities such as wood, or any other matter. You are responsible to become familiar with the requirements of the country into which any product will be imported, including but not limited to, fumigation, investigation, or inspection requirements of any foreign government.
If a burglar finds your secret door, Hidden Door Store will cover the cost of anything stolen from your secret room up to twice the cost of the door itself under the following conditions:
- Claim of burglary must be made to Hidden Door Store within 30 days of the burglary.
- Client must provide copy of police report indicating forced entry to the building or residence.
- Client must provide receipts showing proof of ownership and value of stolen property.
- Please allow 90 days for payment of claim. If stolen property is recovered within 90 days, the claim on the guarantee is void.
- Maximum value to be reimbursed is equal to double the original purchase price of the door, less tax, shipping and/or installation.
In the event that the client requires the completed project to be stored by Hiddendoorstore prior to delivery, a storage fee of $200/month may apply for a typical project.
All dimensions and specification sheets for items are posted online or are available upon request. HiddenDoorStore does not know the size of your intended location of installation and it is your responsibility to determine if the door will fit in your intended location of installation. In some cases, a limited amount of work may need to be performed by a local handyman or craftsman to adjust the door to your location. If you require assistance in determining if a product will fit in your intended space please contact us directly for assistance.
