Charges for repair or inspection of parts by buyer, without prior authorization, cannot be honored. Claims will not be honored on those parts further processed by buyer resulting in change of dimensions or characteristics from parts ordered.

No claim for damages for goods that do not conform to specifications will be allowed unless Stepcraft, Inc. is given immediate notice after delivery of goods to the first destination to which they are shipped and allowed an opportunity to inspect them. Goods for which damages are claimed shall not be returned, repaired, or discarded without Stepcraft’s written consent. BUYER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST STEPCRAFT, AND STEPCRAFT’S SOLE OBLIGATION, FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE LIMITED TO STEPCRAFT’S REPLACING GOODS THAT DO NOT CONFORM TO SPECIFICATIONS OR, AT STEPCRAFT’S OPTION, REFUNDING THE PURCHASE PRICE. IN NO EVENT SHALL STEPCRAFT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES IN AN AMOUNT EXCEEDING THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE GOODS SOLD HEREUNDER, NOR SHALL STEPCRAFT HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

DELIVERY & SHIPMENTS

Delivery dates are approximate. Stepcraft, Inc. shall not be responsible for non-shipment of goods or delays in delivery or performance due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God; acts of Buyer; strikes or other labor disturbances; Stepcraft’s inability to obtain, or material increases in the cost of, fuel, raw materials or parts; delays in transportation; repairs to equipment; fires; or accidents. Acceptance of goods upon delivery shall constitute a waiver by Buyer of any claim for damages on account of non-shipment or delays in delivery or performance.

All deliveries are F.O.B. Stepcraft, Inc.’s shipping facility, via UPS, USPS and/or freight prepaid. If shipped freight prepaid, the charge for freight will be added to the invoice. Neither freight charges nor tax are subject to any discount. Risk of loss or damage in transit shall be borne by Buyer, and claims shall be made directly with the carrier. At the time of purchase Buyer may arrange to pick up goods at Stepcraft, Inc.’s shipping facility. In this case Buyer agrees to schedule and pickup goods within 10 days after the date Buyer is notified of the availability of goods. If Buyer fails to pick up goods within 10 days after notification of availability Stepcraft reserves the right to cancel the order and refund the purchase price, less a restocking fee.

RECEIPT OF GOODS

Do not sign the delivery receipt until: 1) The freight has been landed (to the ground), and 2) The crate(s)/box have been carefully inspected for damage.

Inspect the crate(s)/box(es) thoroughly – walk around each piece. Note any damage to the crate(s)/box(es) on the delivery receipt before signing it. Give as much detail as possible. If the extent of the damage is unknown, note damage as much as possible and also note: “subject to further inspection”. Note any shortages: If the delivery receipt calls for 2 pieces and only one is received, note “Short 1 piece” on the delivery receipt. Advise Stepcraft, Inc. if the shipment has been damaged or if there is a shortage. Taking pictures of the crate or packaging is also helpful if there is damage.

It is Buyers responsibility to refuse a shipment if there is extensive damage to shipping crates or packaging or if they are unsafe to move. The carrier will then bring the shipment back to their terminal and contact Stepcraft, Inc. for disposition. When refusing a shipment it is preferable to not sign for delivery. If the carrier insists on a signature, write “shipment damaged and refused” on the delivery receipt and then sign.

CANCELLATION POLICY

You can cancel a contract within 14 days without giving reasons either via the website, in writing (e.g. letter, fax, email), or – if you received your purchase before the deadline – by sending the item back. The time limit begins after receipt of this policy in text form, but only once the goods have been received (in case of recurring deliveries of similar goods after receipt of the first partial delivery) and also only after our information-related obligations have been fulfilled
Returns must be sent to:

RETURNS

You can return your merchandise in unused, resalable condition within 30 days of purchase with no restocking fee. The buyer is responsible for return shipping charges. After 30 days, a 15% restocking fee will be deducted from your refund.  Shipping fees are non-refundable. Any missing parts or accessories will be deducted from the refund.

Software sales are subject to the software developers licenses and are not refundable, however STEPCRAFT will refund unused, uninstalled software.  Once the software has been registered, it can not be returned.

Customer-assembled machines can be returned but the customer must pay the freight charges and are responsible for proper packing and protection of the machine.  Once we receive the machine, we will inspect and test it.  If it is in good resellable condition, then we will refund your purchase price, less 10% restocking fee and original shipping costs.  If the machine arrives damaged, then we will asses the damage and provide you with a quote for repair, which can be deducted from the refund or a claim can be entered with the shipping company.  We always suggest that you take full value insurance out from the shipping company to ensure that any damages from shipping are covered by the carrier.  It would be the customer’s responsibility to file a claim and wait for a settlement.

RETURN PROCEEDURE

If you are in the United States, contact the Stepcraft Inc. Customer Service Department to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. An RMA number MUST be obtained before returning a device. We cannot accept returned merchandise without an RMA Number.
