PRODUCT SHIPMENT / SHIPPING DAMAGES / CONCEALED DAMAGES
Customers understand that any order that has shipped from any manufacturer location cannot be cancelled and must be accepted and returned in accordance with the Millwork City product return policy. In cases where the customer refuses shipment and does not accept delivery and does not acquire the required return authorization number, the customer agrees to waive any right to refund and also agrees to pay any additional charges billed from the freight carrier to Millwork City or any of its manufacturers for any product(s) not accepted for delivery.
Customers understand that in cases where they have selected a shipping method for any item that is dimensionally oversized, which would require freight as the only valid shipping method, they will notified by Millwork City that their order has been cancelled and refunded with the requirement of the customer to repurchase of the selected item using freight as the selected ship method. The customer understands that there may be certain products displayed on the Millwork City website that may show incompatible shipping methods due to oversize restrictions or manufacturer requirements.
It is the policy of Millwork City that all products be inspected upon receipt of any freight shipment and any such damages be notated on the Bill of Lading (BOL). If products are received damaged, please contact Millwork City upon receipt of damaged items to report damage within 48 hours. Customers are responsible to inspect their ground shipments for concealed damages within 48 hours of the receipt of any small package shipment.
Lift gate services will be included and provided for with assembled cabinets orders. Customers who have ordered ready to assemble orders will not receive lift gate service without paying for lift gate services, regardless of whether the shipment qualified for free shipping. All customers will receive curbside delivery only and in cases where the customer has a street or driveway that is not accessible by tractor trailer, the customer must decide with the shipping carrier to unload the product at an accessible location for the tractor trailer. Customers with oversized items such as wall pantries or oven cabinets must be aware that they do not fit on a lift gate, and they will need to break down the pallets themselves to get it off the truck (regardless of shipping method).
Customers that decline the liftgate service offered on the Millwork City website understand that they prepared to have a forklift on site or a crew to hand offload any delivery shipment. The freight carrier will charge a minimum detention fee of $150.00 if the customer takes more than 20 minutes to unload the pallet(s) from the delivery truck. The customer agrees that in cases where the freight carrier charges Millwork City any detention fee that the customer will reimburse Millwork City for any detention fee.

Customers are responsible to schedule and receive any freight shipment in accordance with normal business hours 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and normal business days Monday to Friday.
Customers who have scheduled a delivery date and time with any freight carrier, in cases where the product has been loaded and prepared for delivery, the customer will be subject to a $150 re-delivery fee if they are unable to accept delivery due to their failure to meet the delivery truck. Customers who delay or refuse to accept shipment to their location or are unavailable to receive shipment after their product has shipped from the manufacturer will be subject to payment of storage fees that are billed by the subject freight carrier.
