Delivery and Unloading

Customer is responsible for unloading shipment from truck. Standard Tools and Equipment will assume no responsibility for any additional charges or damages that may be incurred as a result of unloading from the delivering carrier’s truck. Freight carriers have restrictions on delivering to residential addresses and may require pick-up at freight terminal. Lifts will require a fork-lift to unload. It is advantageous in those 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. Lifts cannot be unloaded using a lift gate vehicle. We cannot advise customers of exact time of delivery as we do not ship on our own trucks. We will give our customers an estimated time of delivery and provide them with tracking information.

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 from paint booth orders must be reported to Standard Tools customer service within 30 days of delivery.


Standard Tools and Equipment has a nationwide network of independent installers. Please call 1-888-312-7488 to find an installer in your area.
