Return Policy for Cagetopia

Common Misconceptions

  • Cage is larger than you anticipated. (This is the reason we require you to check the box acknowledging you measured.) Please contact us for assistance on easily reducing the size if absolutely necessary.
  • Coroplast is often mistaken as cardboard. It’s not. It is 100% plastic. Coroplast is used for outdoor signage and lasts indefinitely.
  • Thinking the product arrives fully assembled. These are cage kits. The cages cannot be shipped assembled as that would require a commercial freight truck to deliver.
  • Coroplast bases must be scored and FOLDED prior to shipping. Minor cosmetic imperfections in order to ship the product can occur and are not returnable or refundable.
  • Colors not matching a prior purchase are not refundable or returnable.

Our Return Policy

  • Returns must be received back within 21 days of receipt of your order.
  • Shipping is NOT refunded in either direction.
  • Assembled OR used items are NOT returnable.
  • There is a 15% restocking fee on the net product price paid.
  • Items must be received back in sellable, like-new condition.
  • Returns must be preauthorized and we will send you a return shipping label to use.
  • Unauthorized returns or refused shipments will not be refunded.
  • We subtract out the cost of the original shipping charge as well as the cost of the return shipping from your refund.

As long as the products were not used in any way, you can return it. It must be received back within 21 days from the date it was delivered. Please contact with your name and order number to obtain a RMA (Returned Merchandise Authorization) number and receive the return address and instructions. Orders sent back without an RMA and refused deliveries will not be refunded. We do not send call tags or shipping labels. You will typically take the package to a UPS or FedEx store or similar facility to return it.

Refunds will be denied if the products show any type of use including smelling like smoke or perfume. Items must be received back in like-new condition, and in the original shipping box. Please don't spend the money to ship it back if there was an animal in the cage. 

Once received back in salable condition, you can expect a refund of the subtotal less 15% restock fee and any discounts originally received. (Original shipping is not refundable as it has already been paid to the carrier for the outbound delivery service.)

Use the original packaging if possible. We are not responsible for packages that are returned damaged or lost.

Non-Returnable Items

  • Coroplast sheet products: (Coroplast Sheet - 5 pcs 29x48) and (Full Sheet of Coroplast - Thirds) -- are not returnable.
  • Bases with the 10” height hedgehog walls are not returnable.

Assessing your Possible Return

It can be prohibitively costly to return items that shipped in a large box. This is generally the majority of our products. More often than not, it can cost more to ship the product back than you paid to have it shipped out to you. When you use our return shipping label, we subtract out the cost of the original shipping as the return shipping.

Original Order Example

Subtotal: $150 (products less any discounts)
+ Shipping: $25
 = Total paid: $175

Return Example

Assuming received back in sellable condition:

$127.50 ($150 subtotal less the $22.50 calculated restocking fee)
- $25 (return shipping billed using our return label)
$102.50 (max possible refund)

Alternatives to Returning

  • Please reach out to us as we can help with creative solutions and/or resizing your cage or item if that is the issue.
  • Resell it locally. Our products are very popular and in-demand by the guinea pig community. You might recoup more of your investment if you sell it as a new item locally via online marketplaces for local classifieds like,, Facebook Marketplace, guinea pig Facebook groups (if their terms permit it), etc.
