Returns

Please contact us if there is a reason to return a defective part.  Please email [email protected] so that we can begin to help you.  Or call us at 657-215-0099.

All Soul SONIC Electric Bikes sales are final. If there’s a manufacturer defect component that can not be replaced or fixed after 30 days we can issue a return label. The bike must be professionally boxed and secured the same way it was received. If it is not properly boxed and damages accrue when returned the customer is responsible for the damages.

 

If you have a damaged item, please notify the UPS driver upon receipt of the bicycle.  Please take pictures of the box, packing, and specific damage that you have found and send it to Soul via email: [email protected]  so that we can start a claim for damage during shipping. It is important that we get a number of pictures to document the damage as it helps speed up the claims process.

Once we start a damage claim, we will notify you of additional steps.

Important info

When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and available shipping options.

All high value shipments are sent with signature requirement.
For FedEx deliveries where this may be a problem signing for package, please see this page. 

For batteries and most large orders in USA this goes FedEx ground (this is mandatory if order includes battery due to regulations).

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are dimensional weight-based. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.

Limitations

We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations. For lithium batteries we currently only ship to the continental United States due to hazmat regulations.  Please call us if you live outside the continental US, and we can investigate what it will take to send an e-bike with lithium battery to you.

For lithium to Hawaii and Alaska we may ship using FedEx but it is more expensive. Additional funds may be requested after order is placed once shipping department assesses final costs

  • Technically, UPS cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes. They will still attempt to do so if a PO Box address is provided in the chance it happens to be one with shipping services, store. Customer is responsible for using an address that is capable of getting the shipment ordered. You can have package sent to a UPS store for local pickup if need be, or divert it there if already in transit using UPS My Choice.
  • We cannot send batteries to an APO, AFO or FPO (no hazmat to overseas military addresses).
  • No lithium to Puerto Rico (everything else is fine)
