Terms of Sale
Standard Tools and Equipment Co. ships products FOB factory. Title passes to customer when product leaves our dock. All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt. Customer is responsible for notifying our customer service department of concealed damage or shortages.
Supplied equipment may vary from photos.
ShippingStandard Tools and Equipment Co. uses common carriers, Fed Ex Ground, UPS and independent freight haulers for shipping (we do not own trucks).
We negotiate the most competitive freight rates possible and pass these savings along to our customers. We make every effort to minimize freight charges to our customers and provide for timely delivery. Call our Sales Department at 1.888.312.7488 for a specific freight quote.
Most items in stock will ship the same day or next day.
Delivery and Unloading
Carriers have restrictions on delivering to residential addresses and may require pick-up at freight terminal. Certain products, such as paint booths, will require a fork-lift or roll back wrecker to unload. It may be advantageous in some cases to ship to a freight terminal where the terminal personnel will unload the product and load it onto the customer's trailer or truck.
We cannot advise customers of exact time of delivery as we do not ship on our own trucks. We do give our customers an estimated time of delivery and provide them with tracking information.
Watch our Unloading Video.
All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt
For your protection, any external damage must be noted on the bill of lading at the time of delivery in order to qualify for a claim against the freight carrier. Concealed damages must be reported to the freight company within three days of delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to file for damage claims against the freight company.
Shortages/missing parts must be reported to Standard Tools and Equipment Co. customer service within seven days of delivery. For paint booths only, customers have 30 days to report shortages/missing parts.
