Customer Satisfaction of Mad Mats®

Mad Mats® are finished by hand. Variations in the ribbon and edging are to be expected. Occasionally there are variations in the plastic stitching of the mat. A single dropped stitch is not cause for return, however if you feel you have received a truly defective item please call us immediately at 800-871-7495 for return information. Mariachi is dedicated to quality and customer satisfaction. If you ever have an issue with a Mad Mat WE WANT TO KNOW! WE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU AND YOUR CUSTOMERS! 

PLEASE NOTE: Mad Mats are packed using tape only. There are no box cutters in the packaging area. Sliced up rugs are the products of careless opening, not factory flaws!

MONEY:  As you know shipping cost are killing everyone. A 400% increase in ocean freight costs (and price increases at the source too) have put huge stressors on what was already a small margin. While we have kept absolute price hikes to a minimum of 10%, some of the flotsam and jetsam of freight and package delivery is spelled out more clearly here for your reference. Mariachi will ALWAYS fight for the best price to ship product and will ALWAYS contact you if there is any question on delivery details or order details. PLEASE READ FREIGHT DETAILS.
