30 Day Money Back Guarantee, RETURNS

We at Goldenteak want you to be happy and satisfied with your teak furniture purchase. To that end, we offer a 30 day money back guarantee for residential sales. If you have any questions you may call us at 978 689 4041, or write us at  We try and give you the highest quality teak wood furniture and the best prices. 

Goldenteak Customers have been happy with quality and design of the product since 1996.   Our return rate is less than 0.1%. Therefore we do not inflate our prices to take into account return costs. While others may offer "free return shipping", you are paying 30% - 40% more for that privilege.  If you have questions on the quality, design, or anything else - call us at 978 689 4041. If you still would like to see the quality and design, call us and buy a small test piece, and we will help you select such a piece from what you were thinking of purchasing. For test pieces only, we will meet you halfway on the shipping costs. We pay the shipping out, you pay the shipping back. The 30 day return period and policy still applies. By doing this you will be getting Goldenteak's superior quality, and yet saving hundreds because our prices are not inflated to account for returns. 

If you do have to do a return, please obtain a Return Authorization by calling or emailing us before returning ANY merchandise. No items will be accepted back without prior Return Authorization. Please return all materials in original NEW unweathered, unstained, unassembled, condition and original packing to avoid damage and receive a full Product refund. If the product was on a free shipping promotion, the purchase price of the product less the shipping charges incurred will be refunded. 

We can arrange for the return shipping through our contract carriers, and at our discount rates, giving you the best price for return shipping.

No returns will be authorized beyond thirty (30) days after purchase of merchandise. After 30 days the item will be treated as under Warranty. Variations in wood color and grain are natural, and no returns will be authorized for natural variations in wood color and grain. No returns will be authorized for fully and permanently assembled items. Cushions are not returnable. Products that are oiled at the customer's request are not returnable. Please refer to our our assembly instructions to learn how to do a test assembly. 

If you refuse an item delivered by a commercial freight company for any reason other than externally visible damaged merchandise, the items shall be treated as a return, and return shipping charges will be applied. If you have multiple items on one shipment, inspect every item before refusing the whole shipment. For example, if one item looks damaged, check the others. We can easily replace the damaged item in a separate shipment, rather than making two round trips with all the merchandise.

Our return policy is similar to doing a return at a mall store. In the event of a return please:

a) Contact at 978 689 4041

b) Pack product as your received it (on a pallet, if shipped on a pallet). This is so that the product does not get damaged in shipment. If damaged in shipment to us (Goldenteak) please contact carrier and initiate appropriate claim procedures. We can assist with photographs etc. However, it is important that you pack appropriately so that merchandise arrives back at Goldenteak, The Wood Carver Inc., undamaged, in its original cartons, and unused.

c) Send Package back with shipper (shipping costs prepaid) or we can help you make the arrangements through our carriers at our discount levels (which will save you money).  Return shipping costs are  your responsibility.  

d) Credit for purchase price of product will be given when received, inspected for damage, use etc, and processed. Damaged merchandise in a return cannot be refunded, and can be shipped back to you at your expense. Damaged cartons (indicating we cannot use them again) may be charged at carton replacement value.

e) Use strapping to secure boxes if possible. If not, use clear tape. Cartons returned with Duct Tape packaging look ungainly for resale, and we will have to replace the whole carton at your expense. If you need to make new boxes, contact a box manufacturer in your area. 


If ordered items are in transit to you and you cancel your order,  or shipment is refused upon delivery for any reason, you will be obligated for the shipping charges to and from your location.

This return policy does not apply to commercial sales.

We just want to be treated fairly, just as you would like to be treated.

Hi, I wanted to be able to provide a review of the teak sun lounger pair with cushions.

 I thoroughly researched teak loungers and found that Goldenteak provided the best price for high quality items. Your website outlined cost-cutting practices other teak furniture manufacturers used which concerned me. Many places charge $300 or more to add on cushions, so I was pleasantly surprised to buy this pair of loungers with cusions included! And, we had a choice of Sunbrella or Outdura (which we'd never heard of but picked after researching it). I was thrilled shipping was free and there were no taxes charged, making this an outstanding deal. The loungers are beautiful; the wood is solid and carefully crafted. I am happy to also have a small retractable beverage shelf on each chair and wheels on one end to allow for easy mobility. The chairs are very comfortable and I'm sure will be enjoyed for many years to come. Thanks for the great product! G.G. Product - Teak Sun Lounger Pair with Cushions

We are extremely satisfied with our table and chair set purchased through you. We did some comparison shopping while on vacation in Florida and your prices were approximately 40% lower and your quality was matched by what we compared. While I was assembling the furniture, I had a question and received a call back on a Sunday evening. We will recommend you to our friends and appreciate your great service. regards, Sandy & Robert , OH
