See our flexible policy and how to start the return process
We accept returns for credit on the customer’s account on new, unopened products within 30 days of purchase. Products must be in their original package and in new condition.
Items may also be returned for repair. Terms and conditions vary depending on the manufacturer’s warranty.
Items that are defective out of the box will be exchanged for a new product at no charge or be returned for credit according to the manufacturer’s policy. If the manufacturer determines that the product is not initially defective, not new, or that its inability to function properly is a result of user damage or abuse, the customer is responsible for charges associated with its replacement.
When you begin a return, you will need to select the reason for return: credit – new, credit – defective, exchange – defective, or repair. An ADI representative will be in touch if we cannot accommodate your return request.
COVID-19 UPDATE: We temporarily expanded our return policy from 30 to 60 days to purchases made between March 1 and April 30 in order to accommodate changes to your business operations.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate returns after 30 days from the date of purchase unless otherwise noted by your sales representative.
Returns of special ordered items are subject to the vendor’s return policy; some may have a restocking fee and some may be non-returnable. Contact your sales representative for vendor return authorization on special ordered items.
Customers may return items to a local branch for free. If you cannot visit a local branch to make a return, you can ship your return to us by paying your own shipping charges or by using our return function online for a flat return shipping fee.

If you have returned an item for repair, please allow around six weeks for repair, not including shipping time. We work directly with our supplier partners to repair products, so turnaround times vary.
