Refunds & Cancellations
We’re confident that you will be thrilled with your alterations. We understand, however, that sometimes an alteration may not be what you expected it to be. In that unlikely event, we invite you to review the following terms related to refunds, returns, and subsequent alterations to correct original alterations.
Because each garment is subjectively tailored, we do not offer any refunds, exchanges or returns for any alterations that have been performed by Alteration Specialists regardless of the client’s level of satisfaction. Refunds and cancelations are only permitted for an order (with the exception of rush orders) within 24 hours of placing an order and/or providing payment details to Alteration Specialists (“initial meeting”). If a refund or cancelation is requested after 24 hours of the initial meeting with Alteration Specialists, it is at the sole discretion of Alteration Specialists to refund or cancel the order but the service fee will not be refunded under any circumstance. The reason for this policy is that once an order is placed, work on the garment commences shortly thereafter and expenses are incurred by our business as part of the tailoring process.
When Alteration Specialists and a customer commence a business relationship (at the time of the initial sale when payment information is provided to Alteration Specialists) whereby Alteration Specialists performs an alteration and/or a tailoring service in exchange for payment, the customer clearly understands that there is a risk associated with tailoring a garment, since tailoring a garment involves subjective work and there is no objective way to measure the quality and satisfaction related to an alteration, from start to finish. The customer understands that Alteration Specialists may alter and/or tailor a garment such that the customer could be unhappy with the final result for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: the resulting garment (following an alteration) is deemed unalterable, damaged or unfixable. In any of these aforementioned events, Alteration Specialists will not provide a refund or exchange under any circumstance. In the event that a garment is deemed unalterable, defective or damaged by a customer following Alteration Specialists’ work on a garment, Alteration Specialists will not provide a refund or exchange and will not replace the garment or compensate the customer for the replacement cost or re-sale value of the garment. However, in the event of an unfavorable situation, the Company will make best faith efforts (at its sole discretion) to try to remedy it.
If you are unhappy for any reason, we are 100% committed to working with you to achieve a solution.
Our expected timeline for completing alterations from start to finish is 1 to 2 weeks depending on our current volume. While we do our best to meet this expected timeframe, timing is subject to change (without notice) based on a range of factors that are sometimes outside of our control. Even if there is a material delay in the timeframe with respect to a client alteration, refunds and/or cancelations are not permitted under any circumstance. Alteration Specialists (at its sole discretion) will make best faith efforts to remedy any unfavorable situations and make things right.
We will guarantee our work at Alteration Specialists, at any location, up until 30 days of the pickup date (of your garments) indicated on your receipt. This means we will be only responsible for fixing any rips, holes, tears, and mistakes solely caused by work that was done on your garment by a member of our staff. The company will not be responsible for wear and tear of the actual garment that does not relate to the specific alteration performed by Alteration Specialists.
After 30 days, the client will be responsible for his or her respective garment(s) and will be held fully responsible for any purported issues. Alteration Specialists reserves the right (at its sole discretion) to make best faith efforts to remedy the situation after the 30-day period, provided that the client notifies us in writing that he/she would like us to take a look at the garment(s) to see if there is a potential solution.
Alteration Specialists only takes credit card and debit card payments for retail transactions. If you would like to pay by cash, check or an alternative option, it must be approved in advance of your pick up date and at the sole discretion of the company.
By entering into a business relationship with Alteration Specialists, you agree to our “Service Fee,” which will be applied to all transactions for tailoring and alterations at all of our studios. This Service Fee applies a 10 percent service charge to the total bill for each client transaction. The Service Fee helps the Company employ industry-leading tailors and ensures that clients receive best-in-class tailoring services. We are a no tipping company and as such, tipping is prohibited. Our service fee ensures that our tailors are well compensated and receive industry-leading opportunities in the tailoring industry. Please note that we are not required by New York State to charge sales tax and as such, we do not collect sales tax from our customers.
Wear and Tear
Upon receiving your tailored garments, it is your sole responsibility to inspect your garments and report any damages or defects to a member of our staff within 7 business days. You can also email info@Alterationspecialists.com with any issues.
We strive to provide the finest alteration and tailoring services available. We cannot be responsible for damages that are caused by personal wear and/or wear and tear that is caused from use or overuse. To be clear, our warranty does not cover damage caused by a personal accident, improper care (i.e., excessive dry cleaning or mishandling by your dry cleaner), negligence, normal wear and tear, or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use.
Please keep in mind that certain fabrics can be very delicate; garments need to be treated with the finest care. If you want some recommendations on best practices to enhance the longevity of your garments, please reach out to us. Dry-cleaning your garments regularly is not recommended. Most dry cleaners use harmful chemicals and agents that destroy or breakdown the fabric, thereby diminishing performance and durability.
Any holes that result from normal wear and tear will be deemed the responsibly of the client. We are committed to helping you find a solution to repair your garment but each instance will be handled on a case by case basis.
We understand that sometimes personal circumstances can interfere and delay the pick-up of your garments. We will keep all garments at our facility for a period of 1 year (from the date of your first fitting). After that point, we will donate your garments to a charity of our choice. By using our service, you agree that we are not liable for the loss of your clothing after the 1 year period.
Please reach out if you have any questions – we are always happy to help!
Alteration Specialists is committed to extending the life of your clothing. New clothing is one of the biggest contributors to polluting our environment. We strive to increase and maximize the reuse and recycling of textiles, to reduce the demand for new clothes and minimize the environmental impact. The more clothes that are recycled via altering and repairs, the better it is for our environment! Help us in our mission to reduce unnecessary pollution.
Your Rights and Obligations
Consistent with standard practices in the alterations industry, Alts trained master fitters will need to, at times, address sensitive areas of the customer in order to achieve accurate alteration results for a garment. This includes, but is not limited to: pinning and/or chalking the bust area of both men’s and women’s garments, pinning and/or chalking the seat and crotch area of a garment, and other areas the customer may feel is sensitive. By utilizing Alts for any fitting consultation or appointment regardless of whether a transaction takes place following the fitting, the customer explicitly grants fitters, tailors and/or seamstresses permission to address sensitive areas, as needed, to achieve optimal results. If the customer, for any reason, does not want a sensitive area to be addressed, then it is the customer’s sole responsibility to voice his/her concerns with the Alts staff prior to or at ANY time during the fitting. We are committed to promoting a completely safe and comfortable environment for clients and staff.
In the event that a customer chooses to forgo the marking, chalking and/or pinning of the garment in any area due to the customer’s preferences, the customer understands that i) the alteration quality may be compromised, ii) Alts cannot guarantee the result(s) of the alteration(s), AND iii) that Alts may need to follow up with a second round of alterations. If a second round of alterations is required in the above instance, Alts reserves the right to charge the customer for the additional alterations. The customer also has the right to ask Alts to work with a fitter of the same gender to perform and/or complete the fitting for the customer. The customer expressly agrees that Alts is not liable for any sexual harassment claims, negligence or any other damages against the company sought by the customer when the customer engages Alts for a fitting in any capacity, regardless of whether a transaction follows the fitting.
We offer consultations at no charge to our customers. In the event that a customer does not want to move forward with the alterations after the fitting, our tailors or brand ambassadors, will remove all pins and chalk marks, if applicable. Fittings done by an Alteration Specialists’ employee are solely the property and intellectual property of Alteration Specialists. Pins cannot be left in any garment under any circumstance unless the client is proceeding with alterations with the company.
