Beyond the website we never rent, sell or share your information. This includes your shopper information or information we gather from our various online forms. We just don't believe in it. One of our co-founders has been a web development expert for over 20 years and this type of nefarious online activity absolutely outrages him.
Pricing changes. The manufacturer's pricing changes, our pricing changes and special "promotion" pricing is always being adjusted on the site for various products.
Grillscapes reserves the right to change item pricing or information at any time. If an item is ordered off of our website before we have updated our prices, the purchaser will be notified and given the option to cancel or pay the difference. If the price of an item is lowered after a purchase is made, Grillscapes will refund the difference to the customer.
Price Match Guarantee
The outdoor kitchen industry is heavily price regulated. That said, it is not unheard of that there are lower advertised prices out there. If you find a lower advertised price on an identical "in stock" item at a local or online retail competitor (including any applicable shipping and delivery fees) within the continental U.S. Just use our Contact Us and let us know. Restrictions Apply.

Shipping is very important and crucial. We'd love to personally deliver your order but that's not practical so we rely on various carriers and distribution centers to get your order from our system to your front door. Shipping is easily one of the greatest points of contention in our industry. Delivery times, state of the product on arrival, where the product will be left, time frames the products will be delivered within - these are all factors than can go smoothly or cause friction. We're here to facilitate where possible to ensure your happiness and loyalty. We've been in the outdoor kitchen business for twenty years and we've seen it all so to better help you we've outlined some policies below to better help you understand the process and as well as to better be informed in an issue does arise.
We have chosen highly regarded delivery companies that not only specialize in our industry but excel in the global online retail product delivery world. We have personally vetted each carrier we rely on and have personal relationships with our reps for these companies. This does not mean we can work magic, pull strings or ask for favors but it does mean we too have a person on the other side that cares about our business and therefor our customers.
Our in-stock orders typically take about 7-14 business days to reach a customer. Direct shipments are made to continental U.S. locations only. If there are supply issues or potential departure delays from point of distribution we will do our best to notify you in a timely manner via phone or e-mail and will work with you to rectify any delivery expectations.
We do not charge shipping on items with a free shipping icon next to them on our website or any qualifying items $49 and up when shipped to within the Continental U.S.
We reserve the right to choose which freight/LTL carrier handles your shipment. We do not, however, control the shipping companies (Freight or UPS). Once a shipment is in the hands of the delivery company, we cannot change shipping addresses, nor can we make a delivery happen on a certain day, and we can only approximate delivery times that the delivery company makes available to us. We would love to have more direct control over shipments so that we could ensure an amazing customer service experience every time but the fact is we work here at Grillscapes and they work at the shipping company.
All shipments, unless specifically denoted, are curb-side shipments. All larger shipments, shipped via freight carrier, will require a signature at the time of delivery. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a valid signature, Grillscapes.com can not be held responsible for damages that may have occurred during delivery.
Remote or hard-to-reach areas may incur additional shipping fees. This applies to Free Shipping and regular shipping orders. If this is the case with your order, a Customer Service representative will contact you promptly to notify you of any additional charges.
It is the customers responsibility to inform us of any potential problems with this type of delivery at the time of purchase. Grillscapes.com is not responsible for shipping costs on merchandise not delivered due to a shipping companies inability to deliver to a particular location.
Certain circumstances may include but are not limited to: narrow or winding roads, dirt or gravel roads, and vacant establishments. In-home delivery is neither implied nor offered without additional charge, and is not necessarily available even if the customer is willing to pay more for it.
White Glove Service on delivery is an option for some products. This shipping option allows you to pay for custom delivery services. Charges vary, so contact us for a custom quote.
We do ship to APO/FPO addresses, but such shipments are subject to USPS size, weight, and content restrictions. If we cannot send your package to your APO/FPO address, we will contact you. APO/FPO shipments may be subject to additional shipping fees.
If you will be charged any additional shipping, we will contact you to notify you of the fees and give you a chance to adjust your shipping address if you so desire. If an item is shipped and returned because it is not deliverable due to an incorrect address, the customer will be responsible for shipping fees both ways.
Orders for larger items that must ship freight require the shipping company to contact the customer prior to delivery. If the product is returned because the freight company could not reach the customer, this will be considered a return, and the order will be subject to our regular return policies.
Over 99% of deliveries have no external or internal damage, and are signed for without a problem. For your protection, we ask that you please inspect your packages following these guidelines:
IMPORTANT - you have 48 hours to call us to report delivery damage
- If your shipment arrives through a typical delivery service such as UPS or FedEx, you have 48 hours to call us to report the damage.
- If you authorize the freight company to leave freight without a signature, Grillscapes.com cannot be held liable for any damages or missing pieces. Leaving a note is the same as signing for your products in good condition.
Freight Delivery Inspection Steps
Following these steps will greatly increase the "ease" of the large item delivery process. Always feel free to call if you have any questions or concerns regarding delivery inspection.
Step 1. Upon delivery, ensure that the pallet/piece count on the delivery receipt matches the number of pallets/pieces you receive. If a pallet(s) or piece(s) is missing:
- Note this on the delivery receipt before you sign. Example: “Received 4 of 5 pieces”
- Call us immediately to let us know you are missing pallets/pieces. We will coordinate with the shipping company to locate the missing pallets/pieces or replace them.
Step 2. Inspect the packaging for external damage. If you notice exterior damage:
- Open the box and inspect for concealed damage before signing the delivery receipt. If you notice external damage and the delivery driver will not allow you inspect the inside of the package or the driver will not let you note “damaged” on the delivery receipt, call us immediately. If you are unable to reach us, you should refuse the shipment. Doing this will not invalidate your order and we will still work diligently to get your order to you in good condition as quickly as possible.
- Note any damages to the packaging or products on the delivery receipt by specifically writing the word “Damaged” before signing.
IMPORTANT - Signing your delivery receipt without noting any damages legally states that you have received your freight in good condition.
Step 3. If there is no visible external damage, sign for your freight.
Step 4. Please inspect your items for concealed damage after the driver has left.
IMPORTANT - You have 48 hours to call us to report delivery damage
Returns happen. Returns can seem stressful but we do not want it to be this way, thus we provide a 60-day no hassle return policy.
60-Day No Hassle Returns
We allow you to return all new, unused, non-assembled, and resaleable items in their original packaging within 60 days of delivery for a refund (minus the original and return shipping costs incurred by Grillscapes.com).
If your return is because of our error, you are not responsible for any shipping costs.
- If your return request is due to product defect or damage, we will first work with you to get the product repaired. If repair is not possible, then we’ll work with you to get it replaced.
- If your return will be coming back via freight truck, we will require you to provide us a photo before your return will be authorized. This can be as simple as a cell phone pic! We just need a “before” picture in case there is any damage to the item on its way back to us.
- To expedite the returns process, before shipping the item(s) back, make sure they are clean, the packaging is sufficient to prevent damage, and (if necessary) you note all defects along with the photos taken.
Refund Eligibility With A Return
To be eligible for a “No Hassle Return,” items must be returned within 60 days of delivery in “Like New” condition. “Like New” condition is when a returned item is unused, non-assembled, and has been returned in the original packaging.
Grillscapes.com reserves the right to refuse a refund on a returned item if:
- The item that has been returned does not match the original item shipped to the customer.
- The returned item is missing parts or the original product’s packaging.
- The item was damaged during the return shipment due to improper or insufficient packaging.
- The item being returned has been obviously heavily used (such as significant charcoal buildup inside a grill).
- The item has been assembled in a way that would impede proper packaging for return shipping.
Exchanges (two options)
- If you need the product right away, you can purchase a replacement on a new order to get it shipped out as soon as possible. Then return the original item and we’ll refund you for the original once we’ve received it back to our warehouse in “Like New” condition.
- If you can wait a little longer, return the original item and once we’ve received it back to our warehouse in “Like New” condition, we’ll refund you for that purchase, then have you purchase the replacement on a new order and we’ll ship the replacement as soon as possible.
Custom made-to-order/special order items are made to your specifications. Due to the custom nature of made-to-order/special order items, all sales are final. Made-to-order/special order items defective due to manufacturing will be repaired/replaced as long as the claim is made within the warranty period offered by the manufacturer.
Custom pieces damaged in shipping will still follow all steps for a freight claim as previously listed under Delivery Inspection above. All Custom pieces will be repaired or replaced with an item of the same nature as previously ordered. You will not be allowed to order an item that differs from the damaged or defective item.
Items sold by Grillscapes.com and shipped to locations in the U.S., including territories may be subject to tax.
No tax is charged when purchasing gift cards; however, purchases paid for with gift cards may be subject to tax.
How tax is calculated
The amount of tax charged on your order depends on many factors, including the following:
- The identity of the seller
- The shipment or delivery address of your order
These factors can change between the time you place an order and when your shipment is complete. As a result, the tax calculated on your order may change. The tax rate applied to your order will be the combined state and local rates of the address where your order is delivered to or fulfilled from. For example, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see tax calculated on your order if shipped to another state.
