Please inspect the items prior to signing the paper work or bill of lading to ensure that the shipment did arrive in acceptable condition with no damage. Damage claims cannot be submitted to the shipping company or Sunset Bamboo after the customer signs off on the paperwork or bill of lading for that shipment.

Damage: In the event damage is apparent at delivery, it is imperative that you immediately contact our customer service department at 951-662-3472. Our customer support personnel are experts at handling and resolving damaged shipments, but we urge you to notify us in a timely manner. Proper notation of damage (“bag torn,” box crushed”, etc. will suffice) on the delivery receipt will help to ensure our ability to fully refund or replace your purchase. Carrier regulations require notification of a damaged shipment within 7 days after receiving the shipment.

Color variations occasionally occur in bamboo, however, this is a natural characteristic and not a product defect. Bamboo is subject to cracking and splitting just like any other wood product. cannot guarantee consistency with any of our bamboo products, but we try our best to offer the highest quality bamboo currently available on the market.


As is the nature of our business Sunset Bamboo may experience product specific inventory outages from time to time due to circumstances beyond our control. You may be contacted regarding your order, given a time until delivery estimate, and given the opportunity to "back order" the product/s. If you would like us to officially add you to the back order queue we will proceed with payment processing. Orders will be filled on a FIFO basis. Once your payment has been processed any cancellation prior to 30 days from date of capture will be subject to 5% transaction processing fee.
