FAQs - How Can We Help?

Expected Holiday Transit Delays

Ohio Travel Bag values our customers and we want to be transparent as we head into the holiday season. Our carrier services are anticipating some extended transit times as a result of higher than usual shipping volumes, labor shortages, and a continuation of the overall nationwide shipping delays we have unfortunately been experiencing.

Please know that Ohio Travel Bag is working around the clock to ship your order on time and as quickly as possible. Once your package is handed over to the shipping service, the transit time is 100% out of our control.

  • We take the necessary steps to ensure every package is out the door in a timely manner and is shipped based on the shipping method you select. If you need your goods quickly, we recommend selecting an expedited shipping choice. See "What are my shipping options" section below for further details.


Lost Package Policy

We are a small but mighty team. We have worked around the clock to get every order out. Mission accomplished on our end. Delayed and seemingly lost package deliveries is an issue that businesses all over the US are facing. Our hope is that orders will arrive in the next few days. Please note that we are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.

SHIPPING DELAYS: As a small business, we are just as frustrated as you when your package doesn’t arrive on time or gets lost. Once your package is handed over to the shipping service it is 100% out of Ohio Travel Bag’s control. Even though we can’t control it we will do everything we can to track it down. Your order will post mark with the shipping method selected at checkout, but we cannot guarantee the order will arrive on time due to nationwide shipping delays. Thank you for your support and patience during this incredibly hectic time of year!

Help! I need my order ASAP!! Can you help?

Ohio Travel Bag strives to ship in-stock orders by the next business day. If you must have your order shipped today, please call your order in to our Customer Service department at 800.800.1941 BEFORE NOON EST and we will certainly do our best to ship it out for you the same day, if possible. And if you need it quick, just ask for expedited shipping (additional shipping charges will apply).

Are your items made in the USA or imported?

OTB tries to secure the best items at the best price that we can pass along to our customers. Although we’d love to have every item be domestic, we do import many items from around the world. If you need to know country of origin, just ask us. Those items made in the USA are noted as such on our website.

How do I return an item?

It’s easy. You have 30 days from invoice date to return an item if it didn't work out as planned. But we want to make sure your credit is processed properly. So, please call Customer Service for a Return Authorization (RA) before returning any merchandise. Returns sent to Ohio Travel Bag without a valid RA number can't be processed and therefore, no credit will be given, regardless of the reason for return. So, just give us a call first, ok?

Here's our official return policy so you know...

  1. 1. A request for a RA # must be made within 30 days of the invoice date. This RA is valid for 30 days from date of issuance. A copy of the RA will be emailed or faxed to you when possible. Please enclose a copy of the RA with your returned merchandise to ensure quick and accurate processing.
  3. 2. If for some reason you are unable to receive or include a copy of your RA, you must send a packing list along with the returned merchandise and note the RA# given to you by our associates. The packing list must contain the following information: RA#, the reason for return, original invoice #, and the date originally purchased.
  5. 3. Returns that are not Ohio Travel Bag’s error may be subject to a handling and restocking fee of 15%, and it is the customer’s responsibility to pay for any return shipping charges.
  7. 4. No returns will be authorized or accepted for non-stock items, special orders, discontinued items or cut material. Please be sure to get samples before ordering.

How do I get an OTB catalog of all of your items?

You can actually view our current catalog online HERE.

If you would like a printed copy of the catalog, you can request that one be enclosed with your next order or you can request one HERE (if shipping separate, there is a charge to cover shipping costs).

Help! I don’t know how to install this item?

See our how-to videos for assistance in setting items. If you don’t see how-to guidance on the item you are looking for, call us or EMAIL us for help (you can always try YouTube – a lot of great how-to videos out there, too!)

What do these measurements mean?

Good question! It can be confusing.

- On rings & slide adjusters, we refer to their sizes by inside diameter.

- Buckles are sized by the width of strapping that would go through them.

- We categorize our snap hooks by the inside width of the top loops (where strapping would go).

- Rivets are usually shown by head diameter and post length.

- Grommets & eyelets are measured by inside & outside diameters, as well as flange depths (depending on the thickness of the material on which you’re installing them).

- Four-part snaps have different eyelet/post lengths and cap diameters.

- Individual replacement wheels are categorized by the diameter across the center of the wheel, and by thickness.

- Zippers are categorized by material type and industry-standard sizes of the teeth.

Unsure? Just give us a call! Our customer service has many years of experience – and we are happy to help! And remember: our printed catalog shows many items in actual size! It takes the guesswork out of things!

What if I don’t find the item or the finish that I need in your catalog or on your website?

We try to offer a large selection of a lot of items, but sometimes there’s something you may need that we don’t have. Give us a call or EMAIL us and we can look into special ordering it for you! (just remember, special orders are non-returnable, non-cancellable and may require larger minimums).

If an item is out of stock or backordered, when will it be back in stock?

OTB is always working on keeping all items in stock but there are times when an item sells out unexpectedly and we are waiting for it to restock. We will always do our best to communicate with customers an estimated date of arrival, at the time of the item going on backorder. Items on backorder will be shipped when they arrive at our warehouse and customers will be charged at the time of shipment. Customers will be notified when the item ships.

Please note, backorders may be subject to cancellation when less than $25.00 or older than 30 days

Helpful Hints!

  • - Have your customer account number handy when you’re calling in an order – it’ll help us find your account faster!
  • - Be sure your list of items to order is complete before placing your order – once it’s processing or packed up to ship, it’s too late to add anything to your order. Make your list and check it twice!
  • - When you receive your order, review it. We hope everything received is as expected, but if an item is missing or defective, let us know asap so we can make it right!
  • - Unsure of what size to order? Use our printed catalog where a majority of the items are shown in ACTUAL SIZE! So helpful and cuts down on the guess work!
  • - Did you know that more than 70 years of combined experience in our products is just a call away? Have a question about our products or a project you’re working on? We’d love to talk to you and see how we can help! 800-800-1941
  • - OTB is a wholesale distributor. We don’t do repairs here but can try to direct you to one of repair customers who can help.
  • - Please be aware that all finishes may not be the same across all OTB products - the gold finish on one item may vary from another item's gold, etc. Ask those types of questions before you order so we can try to verify if items come from the same supplier where their finishes would match. We are always happy to pull items from our warehouse to verify they match before an order is placed.
