Other Shipping Policies
We ship all orders FOB Origin as well as prepay freight and add.
FOB Origin means you bear the risk of loss on the merchandise while it is in transit. Title transfers to you when we ship your Product. If there are any damage claims, you as the buyer file against the carrier and will receive compensation directly from the carrier. We encourage you to inspect the shipment thoroughly prior to accepting it. Please see "Damages," below for more details.
Prepay Freight and Add
"Prepay Freight and Add" means we pay the freight charges and add them to the invoice.
All claims for damages incurred during transit must be made when the product is delivered. It is your responsibility to check for damaged merchandise before the carrier driver leaves. In the case of a damaged shipment, mark all shipping documents as "damaged in transit" and include a description of the damage. Notify the carrier immediately and save the packaging until the claim has been resolved. A damage claim will be denied if the packaging is discarded and the damage is concealed. The carrier is not liable for transit damage unless notified within 48 hours from receipt of merchandise. Call us at 281-993-9329 for carrier contact numbers or if you would like assistance in talking with a freight company. Pictures may be required to process the damage claim. Final settlement of the claim is between you and the freight company.
Additional shipping charges that are incurred at the time of delivery due to distance, delivery restrictions, delivery schedule, or other reasons, are the responsibility of the customer and will be invoiced separately. Delivery requirements include, but are not limited to, use of common freight dock, tractor-trailer access, freight elevator, delivery schedule, and appropriate delivery access.
