WARRANTY & LEGAL STUFF

MASTERTECH MARINE POLICIES

I KNOW, ITS A PAIN IN THE BUTT, BUT YOU'D BETTER READ THIS, ESPECIALLY THE CREDIT CARD SECTION.
BY BROWSING THIS WEB SITE'S INFORMATION OR DEALING IN ANY WAY WITH THE MASTERTECH YOU agree to be bound by all policies listed herein as well as those of all suppliers involved.


ONGOING PRICING ISSUES

The manufacturers have been driving us nuts with random price increases, it's tough to keep up with them. Now that they have successfully eliminated most smaller dealers they have taken the parts availability and pricing on line using proprietary password protected dealer only web sites. Here they can change things at will. It's not like old times when there would be a 2 - 3% across the board increase every 6 months or so. Many parts have recently increased in price 20 - 30% at both Mercury and Bombardier (Evinrude / Johnson). Any printed accessory catalogs or paper price books are obsolete before we can get them.

The long and short of it is, even though we do due diligence in pricing the parts here at MASTERTECH, it isn't humanly possible to keep up with this situation. SO be aware that the prices of some items may be higher upon review than the web site price. We will do our best to advise you of this should your order be affected. Thanks for understanding.

PRODUCT WARRANTIES

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 request.

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.

MASTERTECHS CREDIT CARD RULES

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!
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.

CHARGEBACKS

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.
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.

WHO PAYS ON FRAUDULENT CHARGES??

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.

SHIPPING INFORMATION

PLEASE READ 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.
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" AND RETURNS

"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 mine!

NO RETURNS on electrical items. Sorry, I have not the wherewithal to supply test components!
(This is an industry-standard policy in general)

NO RETURNS AFTER 30 DAYS for any item under ANY circumstances.

NO RETURNS on sealed items that have been opened.
This also applies to parts that show signs of being installed and removed. If we get one of these, you
WILL NOT receive a refund!!

RETURN SHIPPING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY ON ALL RETURNS AND EXCHANGES. A MINIMUM OF 3% CREDIT CARD FEE PLUS MY ACTUAL SHIPPING COSTS WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM ALL RETURNS. So please be sure you are ordering the correct item! I make nothing on shipping, handling and credit card transaction fees, this is not a recoverable cost. Exception: I ship you the wrong part in which case the fault is mine.

SPECIAL ORDERED, OR LOW TURNOVER ITEMS.

Many parts are low turnover items and gather dust on my shelf.
AT MY DISCRETIONI may charge up to a 20% restocking fee on items of this nature.

DROP-SHIPMENTS.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES return anything to a drop-ship supplier without our prior authorization. Most require return authorization numbers which we will supply to you. Parts returned to 3rd party suppliers without proper authorization risk being rejected and credit may not be issued to either you or us. Lost parts will receive no credit.

RETURN FORM
Please print out this form and enclose with any returns. It is self-explanatory.
PLEASE CONTACT US FIRST if it was shipped directly from one of our suppliers so we can determine who it should be sent back to.
Thank you.

DAMAGE / LOSS / SHORTAGE

Product packaging is done with care to insure that your order is received in good condition. For shipment via U.P.S. or common carrier, please note the discrepancy, damage, etc., on freight bill and immediately file the proper claim with the delivering carrier. Damage and shortage of packages is the responsibility of the delivering carrier.
