Payment is received in full amount by Discount Hardware Direct LLC by credit card, personal check, wire transfer, or online payment prior to acceptance of the Order and the duty to fulfill it. If Discount Hardware Direct LLC agrees to the payment terms other than the foregoing including purchases on credit, the Buyer receives an invoice for the amount of the Order. Payment can be done immediately upon the Buyer's receipt of the invoice. If the payment is not done in time limit in accordance with this Agreement, the Buyer's accounts will be charged of 2.5% monthly for the credit balance, or the maximum amount allowable by law for every 30 (thirty) calendar days that the account contains balance payment.
Discount Hardware Direct LLC retains the right to cancel any order that is placed for any item or items that the price appearing on the Website is inaccurate in any respect, including prices resulting from typographical or other errors; in such cases Discount Hardware Direct LLC provides the Buyer the right to purchase the item or items at the correct price, or to receive a full refund, whichever the Buyer requests. The Buyer agrees that Discount Hardware Direct LLC accepts partial payment for the order and Discount Hardware Direct LLC demands the balance payment in due time for the rest of the order. Discount Hardware Direct LLC reserves all rights and remedies for nonpayment, breach, or default hereunder.
The Buyer is aware that the Seller is not responsible for the taxes or charges the government may impose on the Goods upon the sale or transfer. Prices on this website can be changed at any time without any notice. But at the same time, as the Seller, being the first distributor and producer, has the aim to sell goods only to professional customers, dealers, builders/contractors, marketplaces etc., undertakes to report its Buyers 30 (thirty) days prior the price changes. The Seller declares the MAP pricing is very important for providing equal opportunities for all Buyers and undertakes the duty to regulate the MAP pricing on the market for the Goods of Discount Hardware Direct LLC.
Any Lead Times provided by Discount Hardware Direct LLC are estimated using the best information available at the time of receiving the Order. Discount Hardware Direct LLC accepts the orders with understanding that the standard lead time is starting from 2 (two) business days to 2 (two) weeks: normally it depends on the whole quantity of the order and additional services added. However, any Lead Time provided to the Buyer is merely estimated and is subject to change due to various circumstances. The Buyer expressly states that they will not rely on the Lead Time proved by Discount Hardware Direct LLC in any way. The Buyer should not schedule any installation or trades until the Buyer receives the ordered products. In case of a shipping delay for over four (4) weeks from the announced Lead Time, the Buyer has the option to cancel the Order within twenty-four (24) hours of their receipt of the notice of a delay from Discount Hardware Direct LLC stating the new lead time. The Buyer's option to cancel the order is not applicable to custom/special orders if production has already commenced.
Please NOTE, that any kind of change in the invoice results in changes to the shipping cost, as it influences dimensions, weight, and freight class! A freight company representative may contact the Buyer prior to the shipment to schedule a convenient date for delivery. Discount Hardware Direct LLC provides the Buyer all necessary delivery information to prepare for the delivery, including: full carrier information, contact numbers, and tracking numbers. It is the Buyer's responsibility to work with the delivery center servicing the Buyer's area to schedule an appointment on the expected date of the delivery.
The Buyer is responsible for providing a commercial address with a receiving deck, or hiring a professional to unload the shipment with a forklift for larger orders. If the Buyer misses an appointment, a re-delivery fee that could be assessed by the freight company is exclusively the Buyer's responsibility. If the Buyer is unable to accept the delivery of the products within two (2) calendar days after the shipment arrival to the service center, the carrier has the right to assess monetary charges for storage fees, for which the Buyer is exclusively responsible. If the delivery address is inaccessible or invalid, the Buyer agrees to pay the order amount and the additional delivery charges. Discount Hardware Direct LLC strongly advises against the pick-up of the orders from the freight company's terminal or any location other than the delivery address and Discount Hardware Direct LLC is not liable for any damage arising from the Buyer's decision to do so.
At the point of the delivery, Discount Hardware Direct LLC pays all standard shipping costs, and therefore the Buyer is not required to pay anything to the shipper at the time of delivery. Any payments, if made by the Buyer to the carrier or its representatives directly for any additional services, are at the Buyer's sole discretion and cost, and Discount Hardware Direct LLC is not liable for this.
Any estimated delivery dates given to the Buyer are estimates only and the actual delivery date may vary for a variety of reasons. The Buyer expressly understands that no claims are accepted based on announced delivery date and the Buyer accepts all losses at their own expenses. Discount Hardware Direct LLC is not liable for delay in delivery or default on obligations due to any cause beyond Discount Hardware Direct LLC reasonable control, including, but not limited to, governmental action, strikes or other troubles, fire, damage or destruction of the Goods, wars (declared or undeclared), acts of terrorism, manufacturers' shortages, availability of transport, materials, fuels, or supplies, and acts of God (each a “Force Majeure Event”). Upon the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event: (a) the time for Discount Hardware Direct LLC performance is extended reasonably and the Parties adjust all affected dates accordingly; (b) the purchase price is adjusted for any increased costs by Discount Hardware Direct LLC resulting a Force Majeure Event; and (c) the Buyer is not entitled to any other remedies.
PRE-HUNG DOORS MAY BE SHIPPED “KNOCKED DOWN”
All doors, including “pre-hung” units could be shipped fully or partially knocked down with further requirement of assembly prior to the installation.
Please, be aware! We recommend the Buyer to have basic hand tools at the delivery (e.g., knife, hammer, cutting pliers, etc.) to open the crates for inspection without destroying packing materials, as well as a camera or smartphone in order to take pictures of the shipment. For larger orders, it is recommended the Buyer to open the crates in the truck and unload the doors individually (driver’s permission may be required); or alternatively, change the receiving address to a commercial address with a receiving deck.
The Buyer is entitled to inspect the shipment before the acceptance, and failure to do so absolves the carrier from liability for concealed damage. If the delivery driver refuses the inspection, the Buyer should note on the delivery receipt the following: “SHIPMENT REFUSED. DRIVER HAS NOT ALLOWED ME TO EXAMINE THE FREIGHT” or “GOODS EXAMINATION HAS NOT BEEN DONE BECAUSE OF DRIVER'S UNPERMISSION. THE GOODS COULD HAVE CONCEALED DAMAGES”.
All visible damage should be noted on the bill of lading or the shipping label, however, it is also very important to open all received boxes and to inspect the products for any concealed damage at the time of delivery. If the driver does not allow the Buyer to inspect the freight, this should be noted on the bill of lading.
Discount Hardware Direct LLC is not responsible for any additional shipping fees other than the standard shipping fee. Discount Hardware Direct LLC assumes no responsibility for damage to the product, or personal injury, arising while unloading or unpacking the shipments. We recommend the Buyer not to sign the proof of delivery until inspecting the freight. In case of the damage or return, the Buyer can use the same packaging, making sure that the package is in an appropriate condition.
If the damage is visible, the Buyer needs to take pictures of the damage and make notes on the delivery receipt. The Buyer does not sign and accept the deliveries that are “subject to inspection”. PLEASE NOTE, if the Buyer accepts the Goods, which afterwards appear to have concealed damages and at the same time the Buyer has not made notices mentioned above, Discount Hardware Direct LLC is not liable for caused damage to the Goods. Failure to comply with these rules disqualifies the Buyers from the merchandise replacement.
The Buyer agrees to the risk of destruction or damage of the Goods passed to the Buyer at the time of their acceptance at Discount Hardware Direct LLC warehouse in case of pickup, and at the time of acceptance of the Goods at the Buyer's address in case of delivery by a third-party carrier or in case of delivery of the Goods by Discount Hardware Direct LLC.
Discount Hardware Direct LLC confirms that during the transportation of the Goods by a third-party carrier, the Goods are well packaged and insured, and if damage is found by the Buyer upon the delivery to the Buyer's address, the Buyer follows the instructions of this Terms and Conditions. All damage is reported to the Seller within 3 (three) calendar days from the delivery date if third- party carrier or Discount Hardware Direct LLC delivery are involved or at the time of acceptance of the Goods, if this take place through pickup from the warehouse of Discount Hardware Direct LLC.
If the Goods are turned out to be defective through the fault of Discount Hardware Direct LLC after the proper acceptance of the Goods from the carrier delivery or Discount Hardware Direct LLC pickup, the Buyer has the right on full compensation for the cost of the Goods and the cost of the delivery, if any, or to replace the Goods by a quality product within a reasonable time, which is negotiated between Discount Hardware Direct LLC and the Buyer for each individual case.
All damage is reported to the Purchaser within 3 (three) calendar days from the shipment/delivery date.
If any parts are missing, the Buyer agrees to accept the delivery, to make a note on the Bill of Lading or Shipping Label as "Missed" or "Partially missed", and to notify Discount Hardware Direct LLC about this within 3 (three) calendar days from the date of receiving the delivery. Discount Hardware Direct LLC provides the missing parts to complete the order within a reasonable time after receiving the notice of missing parts.
