Terms of Sale / Store Policies

Shipping


Thanks to our loyal customer base, we now are able to ship Worldwide.

Orders shipped outside the U.S. will be charged a fee for duties and taxes when package is delivered. That fee is the responsibility of the customer and is not paid for by Quality Control Solutions Inc. If the customer refuses the package then those fees will be deducted from the refund amount.

Within the continental United States (the contiguous 48 states), SHIPPING is FREE to the customers on orders over $500.00 or is NOT a specialty item. Second day shipping does not apply to products drop shipped from supplier. Orders being shipped to Hawaii, Alaska, and outside the U.S. are not eligible for free shipping. Shipping rates may be calculated during PayPal checkout.

Free shipping does NOT apply to any item that requires freight ground delivery. On all orders that require freight ground delivery, we will immediately contact you by phone or email to give you the freight charges or other options.

We ship most orders via UPS Ground. Items that are shipped directly from the manufacturer will be shipped using the manufacturer’s preferred method (either UPS or FedEx). Packages that weigh less than 1 pound are shipped via USPS. On orders that include free shipping, we reserve the right to choose the carrier of our choice to accommodate the most efficient method of getting the product to you.

Shipping charges in the shopping cart are accurate UPS published rates. We do not inflate any shipping charges.

Please keep in mind that UPS and FedEx do not ship to PO Boxes. If you put a PO Box as your shipping address the merchandise will be shipped via USPS. (Additionally, providing a PO Box as your shipping address will not cause us to ship via USPS for you. If you have experience with UPS delivering to your PO Box, please call us and we’ll make the exception; however, if the package gets denied and rerouted, you will be charged all applicable shipping costs.)

Regarding expedited shipping: Expedited shipping is effective based on when the item is sent out, not from the time the order is placed. If we have an item in stock, we can generally have it sent out the same day we receive an order. Items that must be special-ordered or drop-shipped by the manufacturer cannot be sent through an expedited method.

UPS Ground transit times are approximated on the map below, and measured in business days (Monday through Friday):

Any customer that refuses their package will be charged the original shipping cost, plus the cost of shipping to have the item returned back to us.

Freight Shipping Policy


So that heavy-item orders can go as smoothly as possible, please read the following specifications and conditions:

      1. Optical comparators and other specialty items will ship via freight truck line, NOT UPS or FedEx, please call to verify eligible products. Freight delivery cannot be expedited and does not apply for free shipping. Freight shipping charges are generally provided once the shipping carrier provides quote, and depends on your location and type of delivery address. (No shipping method other than freight is applicable for these items, even if other methods show up in the shopping cart.) We will contact you about the freight shipping charges. You are also welcome to contact us after you have placed your order.
      2. Someone needs to be at the delivery address to receive and sign for the product when delivery takes place. The freight company will call you to inform you of the delivery date so that you can plan accordingly. Provide as many phone numbers as possible to ensure that the shipping company can contact you and let you know when your order will be delivered.
      3. Be aware that the delivery driver is not responsible for bringing the product inside your warehouse. Their responsibility is to deliver the product to the delivery address and move the freight to the end of the truck. They may or may not take it off the truck for you, but they will not bring the item inside your warehouse, take it up stairs, place it for you, etc. You will need to have appropriate assistance and/or equipment available at delivery to unload it off the end of the truck and get the product inside your warehouse.
      4. When you sign the delivery receipt, it is a legal contract that states that you received the product in acceptable condition. Always inspect your shipment before signing for it. It is best to completely remove your shipment from its pallet regardless of its outside condition,  and inspect it thoroughly, and if the product is damaged refuse the shipment. This is very important, because once you have signed for your shipment it is your responsibility if it is damaged. If the Customer signs for the product in good condition and the product is damaged, only replacement parts can be purchased at the customer’s expense and it is the customer’s responsibility to install any replacement parts.
      5. Save all packaging materials until you are certain that your product and all accessories are in satisfactory condition.
      6. Replacement of accepted damaged products will only occur when funds are received from the shipping company after the claim has been filed. Normal claim time is 3 to 4 weeks. If the freight claim is denied and the customer does not inspect the product, signing for it in good condition, the damaged product is the customer’s responsibility.
      7. Remember to call us before signing for the product if you do not understand this delivery agreement.

Handling


A $5.00 handling charge is added to all shipping charges.

Guaranteed Price Match


Are you tired of settling for uninformed salespeople, poor customer service, and insufficient product information in your quest to find the best available price? You don’t have to settle anymore. Our exclusive 110% Guaranteed Price Match ensures you the lowest delivered price with the highest standards of professional service.

Taking advantage of our 110% Guaranteed Price Match is easy:

      1. If you think you’ve found the same specialty product offered online at a lower delivered price, please call our Sales team at (888) 355-7274, Mon.-Fri. (7:30a-4:30p, PST) and say that you’d like to report a Price Match.
      2. We’ll ask you for the competing store’s name, website, and the exact location of the advertised item to verify the price and that the item is new, in stock, and includes the manufacturer’s warranty.
      3. Once we’ve verified the competitor’s pricing, we will match the lower price, subtract 10% of the difference between prices, and process your order. If we offer a product for $1,000, and you find it for $900 somewhere else, you’ll pay $890 with our 110% Guaranteed Price Match.

If you find a lower delivered price after you’ve purchased a specialty product from us, you’ll still reap the benefits.We will honor our 110% Guaranteed Price Match for up to 30 days after your purchase by giving you an in-store credit for 110% of the difference in price.

Our 110% Guaranteed Price Match is valid when the named online competitor is an authorized distributor of the product and is selling a non-auction, new, in-stock, warranted item at or above the manufacturer’s wholesale cost. Delivered price is calculated by adding the base item price plus shipping, handling, taxes and any other charges. This offer may not be used in combination with any other financing or promotional offers. Quality Control Solutions Inc. reserves the right to refuse any order or price match if the preceding terms are not met or cannot be verified.
