Freight Ownership and Damages

The process of shipping an item or items involves the transfer of ownership multiple times.  The products we sell are new and in new condition prior to shipment.  We do not sell used items, refurbished items, or knowingly damaged items. Freight shipments include a Bill of Lading (BOL) that transfers ownership from Shop Tools Outlet to the Freight Carrier. (ie: SAIA, R&L Carriers, Old Dominion Freight, UPS, etc) Once the Freight Carrier has accepted your purchased product from our warehouse, we have fulfilled our obligation. Any and all issues following, are subject to terms regarding Freight Damage, Manufacturer's Warranty, and Returned Goods. A signed BOL from the carrier acts as proof of our fulfillment.

While in transit the Freight Carrier has possession and ownership of the product(s) listed on the BOL. When the Freight Carrier delivers the product(s), ownership is transferred to you, the Customer.

LTL/Truck Freight requires a signature at delivery.  Prior to signing the BOL, the Customer is required to review the freight.  Any damages or missing items should be noted on the BOL and discussed with the delivery driver.  Photos of damages are required. It is the customer's responsibility to either accept the freight as delivered or reject the freight.

Accepting freight with damages or missing items

If you choose to accept the freight with damages or discover 'Concealed' damages, you should contact Shop Tools Outlet immediately or no later than 7 days of receipt.  We will review the damages with you and take pro-active action to resolve any and all issues to the best of our ability. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Filing a freight damage claim with the carrier
  • Contacting the manufacturer to secure replacement parts or products
  • Re-imbursing the customer for repairs or limited product performance due to freight damages
  • Scheduling a return of product to our preferred warehouse

Rejected Freight

If you choose to reject the freight, the product(s) will be returned to the carrier's terminal. The freight carrier will notify Shop Tools Outlet the freight was rejected and we will determine where the product(s) are returned.  We will inspect the returned product(s). If no damages are identified, the returned freight and any refund will fall under our Terms of Returned Goods. If damages are identified, we will refund your purchase in full within 5 days and pursue re-imbursement with the freight carrier based on their terms of service.

Disputed Payments

Disputing a payment should be the last course of action and ends our ability to resolve any disagreements. A dispute includes but is not limited to; Credit Card Disputes, Check Stop Payments, Legal Action.

Once a disputed payment has been made, the purchase falls under our Terms for Returns.  It is the customer's responsibility to return the product per our Return Terms within 5 days of disputing the payment.  If the product(s) has not been processed for return shipment (a freight pickup scheduled) the customer agrees to terminate the dispute and return any and all payments withdrawn back to Shop Tools Outlet immediately.  Shop Tools Outlet has the right to collect payment via customer's credit card, customer check, customer cash, or civil litigation.  Any fees associated with a disputed payment are the customer's responsibility.

Please note: It is in the best interest of both the customer and Shop Tools Outlet to resolve any known issues, concerns, damages, or other prior to disputing a payment.
