MASTERTECH has diligently researched the
sources of its merchandise and represents only items of the highest quality.
HOWEVER - - MASTERTECH makes no warranty, expressed or implied, over
and above that of the manufacturers of the products purchased. All product
is covered by the producer of the item purchased and any claims should
be directed appropriately. Copies of these warranties are available upon
PURCHASER FURTHER AGREES that his exclusive
remedy against MASTERTECH for misrepresentations or breach of contract
or warranty shall be and is limited to the right to terms defined by
the product producers as defined heretofore, and purchaser expressly
waives ALL other remedies of RESCISSION, REJECTION of non-conforming
goods, and any claim asserting total or partial breach of contract of
sale or service and any claim for consequential DAMAGES as a result of
this written limited warranty - including any implied warranties.
First and Foremost, CREDIT CARDS ARE NOT CHARGED AT ORDER TIME, but merely AUTHORIZED until close of business settlement daily. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY ORDER
SOMETHING IN ERROR or need to CHANGE A QUANTITY, please CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY and we will adjust the anount. If it's lower, we will change it so the correct amount is applied at end of day settlement; if higher, we will add an additional charge for the difference.
Bank Card "rules" state that you don't charge for an item until it is delivered. The Bank Card people are patently unfair to mail order retailers with this requirement, especially with the rise of internet retailing. Problem is, I utilize several major drop-ship suppliers and to maintain a delivery flow chart is basically an impossibility. I have no payment protection during the time from order to delivery without charging for the item first. Occasionally things are either overlooked or on a long backorder status, when this happens if I am notified by the supplier I will make every effort to keep customers abreast of the order status. Our problem is getting that notification. Many days here have 3 or 4 hours devoted to chasing down errant items. So to make a long story short, I require a "deposit" of 100% of the purchase price upon order!
A charge of up to 3.9% may be added for overseas credit card orders.
HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR ORDER? Do not "charge back" the order amount thru the Card Issuer, PayPal, or eBay. I will deal with your problem and, if necessary, refund your entire purchase price if you are dissatisfied with any facet of my service. Stuff happens; sometimes we, as humans, lose track, ship the wrong parts, lose orders - - well, you know. So please DO NOT CHARGE BACK anything.
WHO PAYS ON FRAUDULENT CHARGES??
Call us at 850-623-1197 and we will make every effort to satisfy your requests.
A Chargeback costs us $10.00 a shot as well as raising my discount rate - and my ire. I consider it a direct slap in the face. Again, please DON'T DO IT!! There is rarely a problem that can not otherwise be handled to everyone's satisfaction.
Been watching those bank card ads on
TV about identity theft? Illegal card use? Well, since you are protected,
and The Bank is protected (I have about 105 pages of legalese from
them), guess who actually pays for those
SUV's and surfboards? THE MERCHANT who, in good faith took the card.
If I catch you altering an order, sending through a frivolous chargeback, or
using a stolen card, I call out the dogs. They bite. So don't do it.
The thieves who stole my coins in Hawaii are doing a 10 year stretch.
I don't quit.
CAREFULLY!! Freight is included in
parts orders over $100.00 in the USA, I pay it
as a consideration for your patronage. Nominal charge of $8.75 on
orders of lesser amount. I have affiliates in Washington State, Alabama
and Florida for fulfillment of many orders. They are professional
wholesalers oriented to customer service.
In some cases, large and/or heavy items
such as manifolds, covers, external fuel tanks, etc. may incur an additional shipping charge.
You will be notified of such charges before your order is processed.
OVERNIGHT? SECOND DAY AIR? OPTIONS
Need it fastest
way?? Just advise us in the "Comments" box at checkout. We will ship as requested, a second
charge for the difference only will be applied when we get the cost
from my suppliers.
SHIPPING TO FOREIGN DESTINATIONS
You as a purchaser understand that shipping
to your country may involve CUSTOMS and EXTRA SHIPPING CHARGES. We will
declare items at the lowest price reasonable and commensurate with
the items purchased. Shipping charges will be added as a separate charge
to your account upon my receipt. If using PayPal, please contact us first so that we may generate an invoice complete with appropriate shipping to you. If credit card, we will add shipping when the order is processed. ALTERNATIVELY, use the Quote Form and we can generate a pre-filled-out shopping cart and email a link for you to complete payment.
SHIPPING" AND RETURNS
Priority Mail on most small items shipped out of the U.S. is $35.00 (Canada $25.00). Please contact us first if you have any questions about what the shipping charge will be. Thank you.
"Free shipping" means
that we did this the easy way for both of us. You pay the aggregate
price shown on the items selected over $100.00, no fiddling around
with rates, weights, charts and forms. This is is also my courtesy
to you for shopping at MASTERTECH. You may very well find that other
discount marine shops' total costs to you (with added
freight and handling) are actually higher than
