We hope that your order arrives safely and that you are satisfied with your purchase. However, please remember that when the order arrives it is your responsibility to ensure that the product has not been damaged during shipping. Please follow the guidelines bellow for inspection of your package(s):
For items shipped via freight carrier:
Inspect the box for external damage, remove the packaging and inspect the contents for any physical damage in the presence of the delivery driver. If there is any damage, visible or not, you must indicate such on the delivery receipt. When you sign the delivery ticket and do not note any damage, the merchandise becomes your property and no claims are considered after delivery is made and signed for.
For items shipped via UPS, DHL or FedEx:
If there is any damage, visible or not, you have 24 hours to contact us to report the damage. If you do not contact us within 24 hours, the merchandise becomes your property and no claims are considered after delivery is accepted and signed for by you or any other party accepting a delivery.
Again, please take the time to inspect your delivery and if there is any damage be sure to note it on the delivery ticket. If the damage is severe enough to render the product inoperable or unusable, please refuse the shipment and contact us immediately at (718) 372-4444. We strongly suggest purchasing insurance on all shipment types. If you choose not to purchase insurance, we will not be held responsible for any damages, visible or not. All goods undergo careful inspection and packaging prior to collection by a freight forwarder. We will not ship any goods if we notice any type of damage. All damages must be claimed with a freight forwarder. Our responsibility ends once goods were picked up by a freight forwarder.
Expedited Orders and Rush Delivery
If you would like to expedite your order and rush deliver a product, please call our Sales Department to inquire about product lead time and availability. If an item is in stock, it will usually ship the same day. If it is not in stock, we may be able to have it shipped directly to you from the manufacturer as soon as it becomes available, or we can arrange to have it delivered to you as soon as we receive it. Higher shipping cost will apply on all rush delivery orders. Again, please call us at (718) 372-4444 for more information.
