Hayden-McNeil accepts 100% of returns of Specialty titles in sellable condition within 12 months of an invoice date.



Permission is not required for Specialty returns, all that is needed is a copy of the original invoice dated within the last 12 months. Please call customer service at (734) 455-7900 if a copy of the original invoice is unavailable.


Labeling Instructions

Invoice numbers must be written on the outside of each box received by our warehouse. Boxes with no invoice numbers will be refused at the door, or sent back at the customer's expense. Returns that require more than one box must also be labeled with a box number (example: 1 of 5, 2 of 5, etc.).


Paperwork Requirements

Each return must contain a packing list and a copy of the original invoice. Failure to provide these documents will result in an unacceptable return that will be sent back at the customer's expense.


Acceptable Returns

Credit will be issued for upon receipt of the eligible product in sellable condition.

Sellable condition means:
  • No stickers or sticker residue
  • Packed correctly (see our shipping guidelines below)
  • Covers are not bent, torn, or scratched


Customers that do not follow our instructions will have their returns sent back to them at their own expense.

Common reasons returns get sent back:
  • Required information not on outside of box
  • Improper packaging materials/box
  • Books are not sellable as new
  • Invoice is over 12 months old

Shipping Guidelines

Use strong, undamaged corrugated cartons (275 lb test cartons are best). Avoid re-using shipping boxes. Pack securely and tightly using appropriate packing materials (do not use shredded newspaper or packing peanuts). Limit cartons to 45 lbs.

If the cartons are not packed properly, and items are damaged as a result, credit will not be given, and we will discard or return to the customer at customer's expense.

Due to the large volume of returns that we receive, please note that we will no longer give partial credit. If some of a return is unacceptable, we will send the entire return back at the customer's expense.
