Customer Service

Shipping & Delivery
SHIPPING: By ordering items on this site you the customer agrees to the following: After paying for your merchandise you will be directed to a link to pay for freight for items purchased. Items on this site do not include freight charges of any kind and freight is also an extra charge over and above the prices on this site. You the customer agree to pay freight in a timely manner or provide your own freight carrier to pickup items. You agree that the delivery address given at checkout will be open normal business hours for the trucking company to make the delivery (usually 8am-5pm local time). Failure to not have receiving personnel at the delivery address during these normal hours could result in delayed shipping time and a re delivery fee from the carrier. Should a re delivery fee be charged due to the conditions listed you will be responsible for these charges. Please make to sure to order the appropriate accessorial charges when you pay for your freight. If you do not have a dock or a forklift then you need to order lift gate delivery. If you do not have a way to get the machine into the building then you need to order inside delivery. Should you fail to order these items at the time you checkout and find later that they are needed then are responsible for the additional charges that may occur to add these services. Failure to authorize these needed services in a timely manner could result in storage charges being incurred from the carrier. Should storage charges incur as a result of your delayed action you will be responsible for these charges in addition to the original added accessorial charges. All freight charges on our website are considered shipping and handling and items shipped to a California address will be charged sales tax on shipping charges at the rate of 7.75%. Cutoff time for shipping is 12 noon PT, in order to have items shipped the same day. Items ordered later then the cutoff time will be shipped the next business day. SHIPPING USPS: USPS service times are not guaranteed. Should you choose Priority mail, Express mail or First Class mail there is usually a one day delay in shipping due to the fact that USPS picks up daily from our facility but not process the items shipped until the close of the business day that they have been picked up. *PLEASE NOTE: All freight charges must be prepaid before items are shipped. We accept PayPal, or credit cards to book freight. If this is not a satisfactory payment method for you then you must book your own freight with a carrier of your choice. After you pay for items you will be directed to a special page to pay for your freight or book it yourself. We receive a very good discount from Honest Freight and other trucking companies due to our volume of shipping. The freight quote on the item that you requested is listed on the following screens is at our already discounted rate. All freight travel times are approximate and 'not' guaranteed unless you choose guaranteed delivery options and pay the corresponding rates accordingly. Inside delivery is an expensive option for some carriers, it can cost as high as $100 extra per machine and the common carrier must be able to move the machine in with a pallet jack. Common carriers do not move machines to higher or lower floors of the building via elevators or stairs. Common carriers do not setup the machines at the location. If you need setup or the machines moved to higher or lower floors via stairs or an elevator you must hire a local delivery service after the machines have been delivered. If Local Southern California customers; should you choose a common carrier to move your freight (Saia, etc.) we reserve the right to upgrade to a local freight company (such as Vending Machine Movers) at no additional charge. Choose your carrier well. Our highest rated carriers (top 3) had minor damage claims in less than 2.7% of all freight moved. The lowest rated carriers (bottom 2) had minor damage claims at over 9% of all freight moved. Please remember than shipping is arranged as a courtesy and that if your item arrives with minor damage 'National Motor Freight Association regulations' require you to accept delivery and file a freight claim with the carrier. VERY IMPORTANT: Should your freight arrived damaged, be sure to have the driver note the damage on all copies of the delivery receipt including a signed copy by the driver for you to keep. Failure to have a signed delivery receipt with damage noted will more than likely cause your claim to be denied. Some of the carriers on our site that say 'use at your own risk' offer the highest discounted freight rates, with these highly discounted rates comes a certain amount of risk. Should you book freight with any of the carriers listed on our site that say 'use at your own risk' then you must accept the freight regardless of the amount of damage (you cannot refuse the freight) and deal with that freight company directly to file a claim. Should the machine arrive damaged it is your responsibility to file a claim with the freight company or brokerage and deal with them directly to pay your claim.
