TCP Terms & Conditions
You receive your package, inspect it immediately. Note any damage with freight carrier and then call us. Do not wait months to do so!
Returns: All returns to TCP must be approved by our
sales department with a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA Number). All returns must must come back to us in new uninstalled condition (ALL Electronic items are not returnable any problems with electronic items will be handled as a warranty situation through TCP by the original manufacturer)and
be in their original packaging, in original packing condition and
re-sell able. Items not in original packing or obviously packed poorly
will be delt with on an individual basis...but let's face it....we do
not deal in used products so how fair is it to return something that has
been abused...it's not. Returns not our error will be assessed a minimum of
a 25% re-stocking fee and must be returned freight prepaid at the
purchasers expense. Returns not authorized will not be issued credit nor
will TCP accept the merchandise from the freight carrier. No returns will be accepted after 30 days. It takes 7 to 10
business days for credit to be issued to your card from the day of
receipt of returned merchandise or date of cancellation Due to
extenuating circumstances credits are taking up to 15 business days.
Canceling Your Order: We will try to cancel any orders as
requested. However, once your order is packaged and ready to ship we
cannot always catch it. In these cases, you are responsible for original and return
shipping costs. If you refuse the package, we will take the original and return
shipping out of your refund. Finding and canceling an order takes time
so please cancel as early as possible to avoid this. Also, when
canceling an order please include your full name. If
this is not included we cannot locate the order to cancel.
Shipping: TCP will ship either FEDEX or USPS Priority
whichever mode of transportation TCP deems suitable. Other requests
to ship merchandise VIA other carriers made by any buyer may constitute
additional shipping charges. We do not use UPS. If you would like it shipped under
different terms.....call and speak to a representative. Shipping is Free by FedEx accept on custom fabricated items, any quotes given will not reflect any shipping charges and shipping charges should be expected in addition to the custom item quote.
Back-orders: At times TCP will incur back-orders due to
factory delays, shortages or other unforeseeable conditions. TCP
will notify the buyer of such situations VIA E-mail or telephone if number is provided to keep you
informed. If a customer requests a split shipment IE "ship what you have
now and ship the rest later", additional shipping charges will
apply for the later shipment or shipments. As our inventory changes by
the hour....call and talk to a representative and order it over the
phone. That way you know exactly whats going on.
Damaged Goods: If you receive a package that looks as if it
were "run over by a bus" you need to note it with the carrier. All goods
leave TCP in perfect condition and the U.S. Department of
transportation has rules and regulations specifically designed to insure
you as the receiver of products, specific remedies on damaged goods. TCP does not deal in "seconds" or used items. If you even see a
"hint" of damage on a package... inspect it and note it to the FEDEX
person or the postal carrier.
Appreciation: As the CEO of TCP I want to assure all
shoppers that TCP is a service based company committed to providing
the best products at the best prices. Thanks to all my customers for
your loyal patronage. Garth Hillman. President, CEO.
Canada: Canadian Shipments: Our website
does not calculate shipping into Canada accurately. The Canadian
shipping charges you see at check out are approximate only.
You will receive an e-mail or a call on any freight
adjustments. Typically we try and send it out US Postal to save you
duty...but some items cannot ship via Priority Mail.
If you would like to choose your shipping method, state so in the
comments section at check out and we will do our best. With that
said...understand that our charges DO NOT include any Customs and CAD
fees that are charged at the border. TCP strives to get the best
rates and pass them along to our Canadian Neighbors!
Special or Custom Built Items: Special or Custom Built Items (Custom Built to your specification Items are not returnable or refundable. Because items are built to your specifications we have no way of re-selling them.
Security in Transactions: TCP Uses paypal
for our Internet credit card transactions. We have never experienced a fraud nor
do we anticipate a problem. We also accept credit cards over the phone and follow all the guidelines and procedures set up with the new credit card security act with handling those transactions so rest assured you will not experience any problems using
your credit card with our company.
Disputed Charge Error: For some reason people forget who
they buy products from. I know our name is different TCP so If you forget that
you bought a product from us or do not remember doing so, and then
dispute the purchase it costs TCP $35.00 from the credit card
company. When we reaffirm that you did in fact buy from us you will be
responsible for the $35.00 charge and it will be billed to your card, so
please remember your purchases!!! If you are not sure ,just give us a
call and we will check our database and gladly take care of your problem
or concerns. AGAIN a DISPUTED CHARGE can be COSTLY TO YOU!!!
Finishes: We use on most of or products a brushed aluminum product that is PVC coated on one side which is remove when we start the building process. We do our best to provide you with a product when finished is pres-tine on the visible side the not visible side will have scuffs and grinding marks on it, if this is a concern please let us know before the build.
To Upgrade shipping: After you place your order E-mail us @ firstname.lastname@example.org with your request to upgrade shipping as this means
that you are willing to accrue the additional cost. Note: This does not
mean your order will leave that day but we will try and process your
order quickly but orders are processed in the order they are received.
Order placing. Read this...its good stuff! It's what you call...the "Small Print".
On-line orders are processed (charged) as soon as you hit enter! Even if your order ends up having a few back-ordered items!
If you place your order on-line and the billing information does not
match, (for example...) the funds may have been authorized by your bank
and put on hold until the information gets updated. Even though the
funds have not been transferred, the bank has put them on hold in
anticipation of the sale being finalized and it can take a few days for
the bank to release those funds. We cannot do anything to release these
funds any quicker as they were never released to us.
TCP Reserves the right to cancel any order. This does not happen
very often, we process orders daily. Every order is
important to us and we will strive to process and ship your order within a few business day's (closed Saturday & Sunday). We understand if
you need to cancel your order and we will do so.
Special exceptions would be if an item was being "drop-shipped" (which does not happen very often) to you
from a vendor. For example the ball is in motion and you call a few
days later and say please cancel...well...that is hard to do at that
point. We will try...but if the vendor has already shipped it then you
have to accept responsibility for calling so late. Ship it back to us
and we will usually throw it in stock but if it is a special order item
understand that we either have to ship it back to the vendor and pay
shipping and restocking...or let it gather dust in the warehouse. We
look at each return with consideration toward you!
Inventory status: We
also serve local consumers. Combining this with web
sales means that our inventory is constantly rotating. If you are in
desperate need of an item It is strongly encouraged that you call and
place your order over the phone with one of the sales personnel. That
way your order is literally walked through at that time. Web orders are
filled in the order they are down loaded. We are closed Saturday and
Sunday so those orders are downloaded and printed on Monday.
Us and our products.
TCP works directly with the manufactures represented on our web site and only buys NEW product.
We in no way shape or form would ever consider buying a used or second
item. Full manufactures finish and product warranties apply on all our
products! for warranty situations we will obtain the appropriate Return Authorization Information and forward that on to you to aid you in any warranty issues.
We will respect your privacy: No
personal information leaves our facility! In fact we don't retain any
credit card info. If you e-mail that you want something added to your
order...we have to call you and get your card information.
