We do accept exchanges for a different size in our bandanas, collars, scarves, and tees only as long as we have them in stock. We do not accept exchanges for any reason on all custom orders, one-size products, limited edition, and clearance items as they are all final sale.

I accidentally put in the wrong address or need to change my address.

If you just ordered or your order is in processing you can email us a contact@themoderncompanion.com to change your address if we have not already shipped it out. It is imperative that the correct address is inputed. Failure to do so will result in the package coming back to us in an unknown time-frame. Any orders returned to us due to wrong address will have to pay to ship out the product to the correct address and are not entitled to a refund.  

My product says it was delivered, but it's not here.

Unfortunately, we do not have any control over packages and how they get delivered to you. What you see on your tracking website is the same on our end. Sometimes carriers mark the package as delivered even if it hasn't. 

The first step is to wait 1-2 more days to see if the package shows up and check with your neighbors to see if the package may have been delivered to the wrong address. If the package doesn't show up, it's your responsibility to contact your local USPS to get an update on the package or file a claim on the USPS website here: 
Claims. We can not do this for you.

Since we have no control over the shipping of your products, we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages. We do not give refunds or send new products. We always suggest you pick the shipping option that provides insurance as it gurantees your money back if something goes wrong during transit. You can choose this by using our insurance protection through a third-party provider called, Route. You can choose to enable Route right before you purchase at the bottom of your cart.

What is Route insurance?

Route reduces customer effort through a seamless claims filing process. Order issues, including lost, damaged, or stolen packages. The cost to customers for shipping protection is generally $0.98 for orders under $100 of merchandise value and $1.00 per $100 of merchandise value for orders of $100 or more. 

How do I care for my product?

We recommend all our products be hand washed only with a mild soap, water, and air dry. This includes our blankets, scarves, bandanas, collars, headbands, and bowties. Our shirts should always be turned inside out when put in the wash. They can be washed on a cold, delicate, and low-medium tumble. We are not responsible for improper care of any of our products.
