You can choose to ship smaller items by UPS or Motor Freight. Larger items above a certain size and 150 pounds weight must ship by Motor Freight. We have negotiated some of the best rates from our shippers and pass these on to you.
We charge you the same freight charges that the freight company charges us. Unfortunately we may not know before we ship exactly what these are; as Yahoo's estimate that you see and Roadways estimate that we get are sometimes less than actual. In addition actual may be higher because estimates did not include upcharges for delivery to a residence or for the truck driver to call ahead. We process these best guess amounts through your charge card before we fill your order. We will have to charge you again if the actual bill exceeds the estimated.HANDLING CHARGES
Handling charges are included in the line item "shipping". It includes the cost of packaging supplies.DELIVERY TIMES
We are often asked for delivery times. Please understand that we can only give you approximate timing based on our past experience with our suppliers. Sometimes orders take longer from our suppliers. And we have no control to speed up their delivery. So please give yourself a cushion when ordering. We accept no responsibility for any damages that our customers may experience due to their planning that merchandise might arrive to them at any particular time.RECEIVING PROCEDURES AND SHIPPING DAMAGE
You must call within 2 days after you receive your order. All products are shipped in good condition and with proper packaging. However, infrequently they arrive damaged. We do not guarantee that your order will arrive damage free. Please carefully review this section for- (1)instructions on proper freight receiving procedures to ensure being paid in full for any shipping damages and (2)how you file a claim to receive payment from the freight liner . As explained below, you will not be paid your full claim if your people do not receive your freight properly. Please understand we will not make any refunds to cover this shortfall.
The United States government, through the "The Carmack Amendment", protects the customer to get freight in good condition. However it also protects the freight liner from having to pay for fraudulent claims filed by customers for freight damaged at the customer's facilities. The freighting industry has set up the following procedures to accomplish this.UPS receiving procedures-
Inspect and sign for the product at delivery; complete inspection within 24 hours and if damaged call us immediately with the extent of the problem. We will arrange a replacement and contact UPS for payment. Please keep all packaging as they may want to see it.Motor carrier receiving procedures-
Make sure you get the number of boxes that is indicated on the bill of lading. Note the number of boxes missing on the "bill of lading".
Inspect the product and packaging at delivery to establish freight carrier accountability. Note all damages on the "bill of lading".
Inform us and the truck company within several days about any Bill of lading noted missing boxes or damage material.
Damage not noted on the bill of lading is called "concealed damage". Inform us and the trucking company about this type of damage as soon as possible within 24 hours of delivery. The sooner you call means the more you get paid: in-full, 1/2, 1/3 or 0 payment. The longer you wait the more the freight liner thinks the damages occurred at the job site and the less you will be paid.
Get a copy of the claim form from the carrier. File the claim within 15 days after the delivery. Send us a copy. The freight liners will then review your claim, determine if the damage occurred during trucking or at the customers facility. And pay in-full, 1/2, 1/3 or 0.
So please advise your receiving people to check freight at delivery and note damages and any missing boxes on the bill of lading. Please understand we will not make any refunds to cover freight carriers not paying your full claim.
Contact us for help and to order a replacement.WHO TO CALL with SHIPPING PROBLEMS-
