What is the company disclaimer?
The items found on this site are recommended based on the manufacturer’s specifications. We disclaim any liability for use of these products in applications other than those for which they are designed.
The interchange information has been gathered based on public manufacturer’s specifications. The actual dimensions and method of manufacture may differ from the product being provided. We disclaim any liability as a result of misidentifying any interchanged item.
A specific manufacturer’s product may be substituted with another manufacturer’s product provided that the substituted product’s form, fit and function is similar. If the product must be a specific manufacturer, the order must state that or contact our sales staff and your account will be noted to insure that each order is handled the same way. Pricing is based on our best source and the charged price may be adjusted to cover your specific request.
We know how demanding today’s business environment can be. Freight charges are one of the areas everyone wants to improve on. Having a total cost of an order is what many people are looking for at checkout from an e-commerce site. Coming up with freight rates for the 200,000+ SKUs that we offer is challenging. We estimate those freight charges based on a percentage of the dollar amount of the order. Our shipping manager monitors those estimates comparing them to the actual freight cost and will adjust those percentages regularly. It’s not our intention to make money with our shipping. But it is our intention to cover those costs.
We also ship UPS or FedEx collect. By doing that, the freight charges go directly to you at the rates your company has negotiated with either UPS or FedEx. With this method, HoseandFittings.com has no say in what your company pays for your shipment.
If you like the idea of being billed actual cost but don’t know your company’s UPS of FedEx account number, there is an option at check out allowing you to select to be billed actual cost. By selecting this option, your order will not have the freight charges on the order at check out. Those charges will be added on shipment.
We only calculate freight charges for shipments in the USA with the exception Alaska and Hawaii. Anywhere else is billed at actual amounts and added to the shipment at the time of shipment. Or, we can ship and have the freight company charge the freight charges directly to your company at your negotiated rates.
