SawMaster Diamond Tools Policies
All orders are subject to Prices and Terms of sale in effect on date of shipment. SawMaster changes its prices to reflect market trends in the industry, so that its products remain competitive in quality and pricing. Prices on SawMaster.com are considered up-to-date and take precedence over any published prices (e.g. price lists, catalogs, and other forms of advertisements).
Promotional prices and discounts are subject to verification after order is placed. The customer will be notified if there are any errors found in pricing that affect the invoice amount.
Terms of Payment
Net 30 days from date of invoice, unless otherwise specified.
Delivery - Freight
Shipments are F.O.B. for orders of $800.00 or more. This includes all SawMaster products, including diamond blades and tools, saws, parts, and accessories. All other orders not meeting this amount are subject to freight charges, which will be included on the invoice once it is determined.
SawMaster reserves the right to select origin of shipment, routing and method of transportation.
Premium freight charges (such as air freight) will be at Purchaser's expense (shipped collect or added onto invoice). Written authorization by letter or fax must be received from Purchaser prior to shipment leaving SawMaster. All Purchaser requests for such premium freight shipments, whether acknowledged in writing or not, are the liability of the Purchaser.
Material not in stock when order placed by customer will be shipped as soon as possible thereafter.
Claims for Loss or Damaged Goods in Shipment
If merchandise is delivered in damaged condition or cartons are missing, a notation must be placed on all papers signed by the receiver. If unreported or concealed damages are noticed after delivery, the carrier should be contacted by telephone and if carrier fails to send an inspector within five days, a request should be made in writing to the carrier, confirming the telephone request for an inspection.
All requests for credit due to transportation loss or damage should be accompanied by properly signed papers. A claim for loss or damage must be filed with the carrier within 60 days from the shipping date for UPS or other common carriers. Credit cannot be allowed for damage claims that are not properly substained with supporting papers or received by SawMaster too late for timely filing with the carrier.
All customer service (technical questions, re-order of parts, etc.) will be provided by SawMaster. All spare parts for after sales service will be stocked and shipped from Riverside, CA.
If requested, SawMaster may arrange for its sales representative to hold a training class for product knowledge at its dealer's location.
