If the item is a special order, the supplier may not allow cancellations, so the cancellation may not be allowed. If a cancellation is received after the order has been shipped, the request will be treated as a request for return.

If a service cancellation request is received before a technician has been dispatched, no charge will result. However, if the technician is already enroute, the customer will be charged a minimum truck charge.

The part must be returned in its original condition and in its original package to the branch from which the part was received, if package was shipped, return part to Burnaby branch. Refused and returned parts will be inspected to assess re-salability. If Key is found to have erred in sending the part(s), a full refund will be given to the customer once the part is returned to Key.
