ShortOrder.com will not be responsible for damaged shipments that were signed for and accepted without damage noted on delivery receipt (see 1D.)
In order to purchase from ShortOrder.com, you must agree to the following terms and conditions.
1. Inspection Guidelines:
Despite the efforts of the manufacturers of the equipment offered for sale in this Site, damage and loss can occur. As the purchaser, it is your responsibility to do the following:
A. Verify that the shipment matches the freight carrier's documentation (number or pieces, skids, etc.)
B. Visually inspect the packaging for signs of damage. Look for tears or damage to the cartons. Note any exterior tears or damage on the freight carrier's documentation.
C. Uncrate or un-package your order and complete a full inspection for damage. The original packaging MUST be kept in order to file a damage claim. Identify any damage on the freight carrier's documentation. If the carrier refuses to remain on-site for the inspection, note on the driver's documentation that the driver did not permit a full inspection.
D. If concealed damage is discovered after item has been signed for in good condition, ShortOrder.com is no longer liable. All claims for compensation must be addressed directly with the freight carrier. ShortOrder.com will not be a participant in this process. Customer should request the carrier or agent of the carrier do an inspection. Save all packaging for the damaged item.
You may refuse any shipment with signs of damage or when the number of pieces received does not match the number of pieces on the freight carrier's documentation. If you refuse a shipment, it is your responsibility to contact Customer Service immediately. You must note your refusal on the freight carrier's documentation.
Your signature on the freight carrier's documentation acknowledges that the shipment was received in good condition and absent of damage or shortages. It is imperative that you note any damage or shipment abnormalities that may exist before the freight carrier leaves your location.
2. Return Policy:
We hold a 30-day return policy on all items we sell. If, within 30 days, you decide you would like to return your order; please contact our Customer Service Department. We will issue a RMA number for the unused item's return. The item MUST be in its original packaging. To offset the charges we have incurred as a result of producing the order, ShortOrder.com will charge a 20% restocking fee or whatever amount covers the manufacturer's restocking fee on all items returned. We will work with you to coordinate the item's return. Once ShortOrder.com receives the credit from the manufacturer, we will refund the original purchase amount less the applicable restocking fees. In incidents where a credit card was used, we will issue the credit to that credit card. In instances where the method of payment was via check, we will issue a check and send it to the delivery address via US Mail.
The customer is responsible for round trip freight. Return shipping charges are to be pre-paid. ShortOrder.com will refuse all COD deliveries. Also, shipments that do not clearly state the RMA identification number will be refused.
If you have an issue with your equipment right out of the box, ShortOrder.com will work with you and the manufacturer to replace the item with an identical unit. In cases where an identical unit is not available, we will work with you to find an item that is equally acceptable to you. Please contact our Customer Service staff for assistance.
Custom, used or modified equipment that will not be accepted by the item's manufacturer may not be returned.
3. Sales/Use Tax
Buyer is responsible for paying sales and use tax directly to the state in which the business operates.
4. Shipping Policies:
Standard ground or LTL freight is free and shipped within the contiguous United States. Standard delivery times average between 2 to 10 working days.
Standard delivery is tailgate delivery* only. With tailgate delivery, the freight carrier will bring freight to the back of the truck. Unloading from the truck to the parking lot is the responsibility of the purchaser. Please make sure you have the personnel to unload and deliver your purchase inside your facility. Standard delivery does not include inside placement, uncrating or installation. Liftgate deliveries** are available at an additional price. Liftgate delivery consists of the freight carrier lowering the freight to the ground via a lift system. (It is important to consider a liftgate delivery when heavy, bulky equipment is ordered. Also, it is import to consider a liftgate delivery in absence of a loading dock. Liftgate service is still a curb delivery service. Inside placement is still your responsibility. Inside placement is defined as unloading, uncrating and setting the freight in place inside your facility. This is not part of the standard delivery service.)
You can track the status of your order by clicking the "Tracking" link on the top of our page. Order status and tracking information is available to you 24/7. If you have issues with your delivery, please contact customer service immediately.
If the carrier determines that delivery cannot be made to your address, please contact Customer Service immediately. We will work with the carrier to determine if delivery can be made and or identify alternate delivery options if needed.
Please keep in mind that ShortOrder.com has no control over carrier delivery schedules, inclement weather conditions or natural disasters. In order to ensure that your product is delivered in the time frame you need, please allow ample time for delivery.
ShortOrder.com is not responsible for charges on deliveries attempted and returned due to incorrect shipping information or redeliveries for missed appointments.
5. Redelivery / Reconsignment:
If the freight carrier attempts delivery and is unable to delivery for reasons that are within your control, redelivery fees may apply for which you will be responsible.
Once a shipment is in transit, new fees may apply if there is a change in the delivery address (known as reconsignment).
6. Residential Delivery Fee:
Freight carriers charge an extra $75 fee for residential deliveries. If you are shipping to a residence, you must indicate this on your order. Orders shipped to a residence that fail to have the residential designation will incur the original residential delivery charge as well as a $25 service fee per freight carrier.
7. Cancellation / Refused Orders:
Please note that you will be responsible for additional charges if any or all of your order is refused for any reason. Charges may include the full amount of round-trip shipping and handling fees, plus any applicable restocking fees.
This provision does not apply to orders that are refused due to freight damage.
If you need to cancel your order, please contact our Customer Support department immediately. Orders will be cancelled at no charge if made prior to shipment. You will be held responsible for round-trip freight and expenses for any items that were shipped prior to our notification.
There are no warranties expressed or implied by ShortOrder.com. All warranties are held between the manufacturer and the buyer.
