Please NOTE, that any kind of change in the invoice is the reason for changing the shipping cost as it influences on dimensions, weight and freight class! A freight company representative may contact the Purchaser prior to the shipment to schedule a convenient date for delivery. Discount Hardware Direct LLC provides the Purchaser all necessary delivery information to prepare for the delivery, including: full carrier information, contact numbers, and tracking numbers. It is the Purchaser’s responsibility to work with the delivery center servicing the Purchaser’s area to schedule an appointment on the expected date of the delivery. The Purchaser 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 Purchaser misses an appointment, a re-delivery fee that could be assessed by the freight company is exclusively Purchaser's responsibility. If the Purchaser 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 Purchaser is exclusively responsible. If the delivery address is inaccessible or invalid, the Purchaser agrees to pay the order amount and the additional delivery charges.

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 Purchaser 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 Purchaser 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 Purchaser 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 Purchaser 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 is 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 Purchaser 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 Purchaser not to sign the proof of delivery until inspecting the freight. In case of the damage or return, the Purchaser can use the same packaging, making sure that the package is in an appropriate condition. If the damage is visible, the Purchaser takes pictures of such damage and makes notes on the delivery receipt. The Purchaser does not sign and accept the deliveries that are “subject to inspection”. PLEASE NOTE, if the Purchaser accepts the Goods which afterwards appear to have concealed damages and at the same time the Purchaser 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 Purchasers from the merchandise replacement. The Purchaser agrees the risk of destruction or damage of the Goods passes to the Purchaser at the time of acceptance of the Goods at Discount Hardware Direct LLC warehouse in case of pickup, and at the time of acceptance of the Goods at the Purchaser'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 Purchaser upon the delivery to the Purchaser 's address, the Purchaser follows the instructions of this Terms and Conditions.
