Repair Policy

Rago Brothers is proud to serve you.

Cleaning, Dyeing, Repairing, Alterations, Stretching

  • While we are skilled in the craft of leather repair, we cannot guarantee that cleaning, dyeing, repairing, altering, or stretching will return your item to its original condition.
  • We do our best to select and utilize the appropriate process that is suited for your item.
  • Work performed cannot be undone or returned back to the pre-repair condition.
  • There are no refunds on any repairs, cleaning, dyeing, alterations, or stretches.
  • Dyed items may look different when viewed in different lighting.
  • We offer original hardware for many brands, but not all.
  • We provide good faith estimates as to when repairs will be completed and/or shipped; they are not to be considered deadlines.

Shipping

  • Rago Brothers is not liable for any items damaged, lost, or stolen once the shipping carrier has picked up the package. If your item was damaged, lost, or stolen, please contact the shipping carrier to file a claim.
  • Rago Brothers is not responsible for the incorrect delivery location by the shipping carrier.
  • The customer is responsible for entering his or her return shipping address. Rago Brothers is not responsible for errors made when the form is completed by the customer.

Returns/Refunds

  • Work performed cannot be undone and returned back to the pre-repair condition.
  • All repairs are final sale.

Mail-In Orders (Domestic and International)

  • It is the customer’s responsibility to list all repairs requested on the Mail-in Repair Form under “Repairs Needed”, so we can provide a price for the requested repairs. Repairs not listed will not be quoted or worked on.
  • After an item has been received and assessed in our shop, if the customer declines all repair quotes, there will be a nominal shipping fee to return item(s) to a US address, according to the chart below. For International addresses, we recommend that customers mail their items along with a pre-paid return shipping label.

We recommend that customers contact us to get an Initial Photo Repair Assessment and an idea of pricing before mailing in an item, by providing photos and a note explaining the areas needing repair.
