The majority of the items that Premier Carts sells will be shipping directly from the manufacturer to the buyer. The individual product pages on our web site will indicate in the "Product Details" area if an item ships via LTL truck carriers or if the item can ship by a parcel carrier. In some cases, volume orders for items that ship individually by parcel carriers may ship by LTL truck carriers to save on shipping charges. The policies below differ slightly depending on the shipment method required for an order. Commercial truck deliveries are very different from standard parcel deliveries and need to be received in a proper manner. The manufacturers we deal with have been in business for decades and know how to package and load their items for truck shipments. Premier Carts uses large reputable national freight carriers for our freight deliveries. The vast majority of shipments will not have any issues, but the nature of large items and truck deliveries is that occasionally there will be issues. PLEASE INSPECT ALL DELIVERIES AND DO NOT ACCEPT DAMAGED ITEMS.
Freight Shipments - Truckload, LTL (Less than Truckload)
Shipments are made F.O.B. shipping point. Receiving truck and LTL freight shipments correctly is very important. The buyer is responsible for inspecting all deliveries for signs of damage when the shipment is delivered. If there are signs of damage it is the buyers responsibility to unpack, inspect and declaring any damages on the delivery receipt while the delivery carrier is still present. Premier Carts can not file a freight claim if there is no indication of damages, shortages or other issues marked on the delivery receipt. If you detect damage to any items at the time of delivery that you are not willing to accept, we recommend that you note the number of damaged items and the extent of damage clearly on the delivery receipt, receive and keep any items that are not damaged and refuse delivery of any damaged items. The freight carriers do not automatically contact us if there is a delivery issue. It is the buyers responsibility to receive all deliveries in a business-like manner, document the extent of any damage (emailing photos is the best method), and contact us to help you resolve any delivery and claim issues. Our normal policy when Premier Carts is filing a a claim, is to issue a credit to the buyer for the costs associated with the damaged items. We do not automatically re-order and ship out replacement items.
If any concealed damage is discovered after receipt of a shipment, it is the buyers responsibility to notify the delivering carrier, request an inspection, document the extent of the damage, and to file a claim with the delivering carrier. The claim is between the buyer (consignee) and the delivery carrier and all reimbursements will be between the the buyer (consignee) and the freight carrier. Premier Carts can not file a freight claim if there is no indication of damages, shortages or other issues marked on the delivery receipt. Premier Carts can assist in helping to file a freight claim, but it is the buyers responsibility to file the claim with the delivery carrier. If the buyer decides to re-order and ship any replacement items because of freight damage discovered after receipt of a shipment, it is the buyers responsibility to pay for these replacement items. Please know that reimbursements of claims from freight carriers can take several months.
Parcel Shipments - UPS, FedEx
Shipments are made F.O.B. shipping point. The buyer should inspect all deliveries for signs of damage at the time of receipt and if possible note any evidence of damage to boxes at the time of delivery. If any concealed damage is discovered after receipt of a shipment, it is the buyer's responsibility to document the damage (emailing photos is the best method), and report the issue to Premier Carts within three business days of receipt. The parcel carriers' do not automatically contact us if there is a delivery issue. The buyer is responsible to send or e-mail an explanation of the problem along with photographs to help us understand the issue and to assist us in reporting the issue to the shipper / manufacturer. Parcel shipments made by UPS or FedEx normally require that the shipper / manufacturer be the party that files the claim.
Freight Collect / Third Party
On occasion we get requests to ship items using the buyer's freight account and selected freight carrier. We try to honor these requests, but we can not always guarantee that the manufacturer will always execute the shipment request properly. In order to best execute this type of request, we will need to know the freight carrier and full billing terms at the time the order is placed, not when the order is ready to ship. The manufacturers generate their own bills of lading, so we can not use third party created bill of ladings. Our manufacturers' do charge a $30.00 per pallet charge for securing carts onto a pallet for shipment. This pallet fee is automatically included in our freight quotes, but will be charged to the buyer if the buyer is selecting their own freight carrier. Shipments are made F.O.B. shipping point. The buyer assumes all responsibility for these type of shipments. Premier Carts can not file a claim for these types of shipments because our company is not a party on the bill of lading.
All prices are in US Dollars. The standard terms for new customers is pre-payment at the time the order is placed. Premier Carts accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, and check payments. Premier Carts currently only collects and remits sales tax for the state of Kansas. Buyers outside of Kansas are responsible for all federal, provincial, state or local excise, sales, use, and value added taxes. The buyer is also responsible for any customs, duties or other fees associated with export.
