Return Policy

Restock Fees

If your order arrives and it is not right, we will fix it without hassle. 

Doesn't fit or just not happy with it? You can return any new, unused and unaltered item in full within 7 days of delivery.

Please first make contact within 48 hours of delivery if you think you need to make a return. We will issue a refund to your original payment method, or issue store credit.

Goods that have been correctly supplied by Rideshed and have been returned for credit, outside our regular credit / returns policy, will be subject to a restocking fee. That fee is 15% of the value of the credited goods.

Items returned that were part of a “Free Freight” order, that drop the invoice total below the $100.00 threshold, will be retrospectively charged the freight cost. Where one or more items are freighted and marked “sale or return” and all items are returned (i.e. nothing is purchased) a restocking fee will apply. No restock fee for exchanges.

Please fill out the Returns Form and send with your product. 

Refund Policy

  • Returned products must be in new, unused condition and include the original box (undamaged) and/or packaging (undamaged) with all tags included.

  • Once your return is received and inspected by Rideshed (usually within 24 hours of receipt), your store credit or refund will be processed and if applicable, a credit will be applied to your credit card or original payment method. Please note that it may take an additional 2-10 business days after your credit is applied for it to be posted to your account, depending on your credit card company.

  • For bank transfer payments, all refunds will be issued to store credit unless the wrong items was sent out by us, or we have sent a faulty item. 

  • You are responsible for all shipping costs associated with getting your order back to our Auckland site.

  • Please do not abuse this policy by ordering multiple (more than 2) of the same or similar item with the intention of returning the majority of your order. Please contact us if you are unsure of sizing or application for any items prior to placing your order, and we will be happy to help you narrow it down!

  • See below for instructions on how to get your return order back to us. Items should not be shipped back to the manufacturer; all returns need to be returned to Rideshed in Auckland. 

Return Shipping Options

  • You have the option of using the carrier of your choice to return your order to us. We recommend shipping with a method which includes tracking and insurance for your return shipment.



  • Need to make an exchange? Exchanges are only available for apparel/gear, not mechanical parts. So make sure to use the parts finder to find the correct parts for your bike. Once we receive the item to be exchanged, and have checked it for wear/completeness, we will send out your new item.

  • You are responsible for return shipping costs on your original order back to us, and shipping of the new item out to you. Any free shipping offered on the original order does not apply to subsequent exchanges for that order. 


Order Cancellation / Modifications

  • If you change your mind, act quickly! We turn around and process orders extremely fast.

  • Orders can be modified or cancelled only while their status is labeled "Order Received." Once an order has a status of "Order Processed," it cannot be cancelled or modified, as the order has been processed by our warehouse and is in the queue to be shipped out.


Used or Damaged Merchandise

  • Any merchandise which has been "taken out for a ride" is considered used and cannot be returned. We encourage you to walk on your carpet in your boots and to try your motorcycle helmet on indoors before heading out on the bike.

  • Any merchandise or parts which show signs of use (wear, bugs, dirt, smell, pet hair, scuffing, mounting, etc) or is in any condition other than it was dispatched from us cannot be returned.

  • Trademe, Facebook and online forums are excellent resources if you have a used item you do not want that can no longer be returned to Rideshed.


Apparel and Helmets

  • Apparel items must be packed in their original garment bag (or equivalent plastic bag protection) and include all original tags. The plastic bag protects the item from the cardboard. Items packaged without this protection most likely will arrive scuffed and will be returned to the customer.

  • Helmets must be shipped back as they were received in their original helmet bag, box and include all original paperwork and accessories.

  • Unused items that are returned with missing or damaged packaging, tags, components, or hangers may be returned to the customer or subject to an additional processing fee based on the availability of those missing or damaged components.


Electronics, Hard Parts, Tools, Tires

  • All electronic items have been tested at the factory (e.g CDI's, ECU's, REG/REC) and due to their sensitive nature are non-returnable.

  • Any part which has been installed, or shows signs of attempting to be installed on a vehicle is non-returnable.

  • Any Tool or Chemical that has been opened or has the seal broken is non-returnable.

  • Open box items for which the packaging has been destroyed are not returnable.


International Returns

  • International shipments should be marked as a "Merchandise Return" with a carrier that does not levy brokerage fees. Customer is responsible for any applicable brokerage or customs charges.

  • Any items which have additional brokerage fees that are charged to Rideshed upon delivery will be rejected.



  • Each manufacturer has their own warranty policy. Rideshed will assist customers with their warranty; however Rideshed does not provide any direct warranty on any items sold.


Warranty Returns

  • Most manufacturers offer an additional warranty period which covers against merchandise defects. To determine warranty requirements for a specific item, please contact the manufacturer or contact us for assistance.

  • Please note warranty processing may take up to 4-8 weeks for complex cases or where the overseas manufacturer needs to see it physically, and acceptance will be subject to the individual manufacturer's policies and discretion. Manufacturer warranties do not cover defects determined to be caused by normal wear or due to customer negligence.


Damaged Items

  • Please let us know ASAP if any items on your order arrive damaged (within 48 hours of receipt). Please keep all original shipping containers and packaging and take pictures if possible. Damaged item claims are handled through the shipping carrier. We will assist our customers in these claims. We only ask that customers be patient as this process can take longer than any of us would like!
