Welcome to Sporty's Customer Care Center

Our products are cutting edge, but our customer service is old-fashioned.

At Sporty’s, you can rest assured that we prioritize personal connections over automated systems. When you reach out to our customer service department, you won't encounter requests to enter lengthy account numbers on your phone's touchpad. Instead, you'll have the pleasure of speaking directly with one of our dedicated Sporty’s employees.

Our team boasts an impressive average customer service tenure of 28 years, and we operate right here at the Clermont County Airport in Ohio—no remote phone banks for us. You'll find our customer service staff working side by side with other team members, ensuring a seamless and efficient experience.

Angie, Carmen, Jeremy, Joyce, Lisa, Eric —all of our helpful staff—are committed to providing you with the answers you need, assistance with any concerns, prompt resolution of issues, and the attentive ear you deserve. Our mission is to make your shopping experience with Sporty’s the best it can be.

It all starts with our unwavering guarantee, which has remained unchanged since 1962. We stand by it wholeheartedly. If, for any reason, you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, please let us know, and we will take the necessary steps to make things right. If you wish to request a refund or exchange, simply return the product within 30 days in its original condition—no complicated fine print or unnecessary hassle involved. Your satisfaction is our priority.

Questions about sales tax/tax exemption

Due to changes in federal regulations, Sporty’s is now required to collect and remit sales tax on transactions occurring in your state. As a Sporty’s dealer, if you provide us with your resale/tax exemption certificate, sales tax will not be collected on your orders. Once your certificate is received, we will update your account so that any orders placed with us are exempt from sales tax.

If you are eligible and have a tax exemption certificate, please email it to taxexempt@sportys.com

Below is a list of states where we currently collect and remit sales tax. Please note, this list continues to be expanded: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming
