Free Shipping Promotions, Freight Costs & Shipping Details
All shipping costs and shipping promotions quoted on our website (including free shipping) are valid to the contiguous 48 United States only, and these promotions may not apply if the delivery address is located on an island, or in a rural, high density urban, or low-volume freight shipping area. In these cases, you will need to contact our support team at (301) 498-0234 to get a shipping quote, or you may see a shipping surcharge on this website added by the freight carrier. Please note that it is the freight companies that determine which areas fall within these categories, and they increase their rates accordingly. While Ambient may still subsidize a large portion of the shipping costs, the remainder of the increased charges are the responsibility of the customer. These surcharges are always displayed by our website up front before you finalize your transaction so the customer can accept the charges and continue, or decide not to purchase. Ambient reserves the right to cancel any order for any reason before shipment, which will result in a full refund to the customer within 5 business days.
If you have purchased from Ambient in the past
Wood and bamboo flooring can have shade variations between different lots. If you're a return customer purchasing flooring or moldings, we recommend that you send us a sample of your floor so we can find a lot that matches what you already have.
We reserve the right to change our product lines to improve the selection we offer to our customers while staying on top of the latest advances in engineering and manufacturing. This means that some of our product lines are changed or discontinued as time goes by. Sometimes we improve a click-lock system design, sometimes we change the dimensions of standard planks, sometimes we discontinue certain colors, finishes and styles due to low demand.
Cancellations, Returns & Defects
If you feel you have received a non-conforming or defective product, this defect must be reported to Ambient within 7 days. Returns are not accepted on items that have been out of our possession for more than 90 days, clearance items, or custom items. Canceled orders may incur change fees. For detailed information please review our return policy.
About sales tax
If Ambient does not have economic nexus in the state we are shipping your order to, we are not required to charge sales tax. The list of states that Ambient has economic nexus is subject to change at any time and we reserve the right to collect sales tax on any order to ensure we comply with each state's tax laws regardless of any marketing promotions, coupons or discounts offered. Individual state tax laws may require you to report and pay taxes on certain purchases of your own accord; we recommend that you contact your state tax authority with sales tax liability questions.
Occasional rental equipment malfunctions and mechanical failures are an industry standard. If any piece of rental equipment experiences mechanical failure during the rental period, whether by user error or common wear and tear, our customer service team will work diligently to ship a free replacement (including free shipping), however we are not responsible for express shipping charges, labor costs, or any other costs associated with the malfunction of the rental equipment.
Ambient's website offers some free samples and some paid samples, and we generally limit these samples to one free shipment per household. The purpose of these samples is for our customers to be able to check the appearance of our products before purchasing. We also reserve the right to cancel samples requests of excessive quantities; they may not be filled and the customer will be refunded immediately.
