Returns Policy

Updated 7/18/2017

*All returns are processed within 7-10 business days.

Due to Mobile Defenders’ experience and knowledge of the mobile repair industry; we provide our customers with the same customer service, respect, and warranty policies that we expect in our repair locations. Mobile Defenders prides itself on the highest quality parts and service. Nonetheless, we understand the nature of the repair industry and extend our technical knowledge and experience to our customers.

Although our products are tested by hand throughout the supply chain, defects and issues will always be an unfortunate part of our industry. That is why we extend our generous refund or return policy to all Mobile Defenders' customers. All warranties cover defective parts only, unwanted, unused, or damaged parts are not covered by our warranty. The details of this policy are discussed below:
