Shipping and Returns

Shipping

We try to ship all orders within 2 business days, but we aim to ship all orders placed before 12:00pm EST, the same business day. If your order is placed after 12:00pm EST, it will be shipped the next business day. Shipping times may be extended due to high volume. If shipping is delayed for any reason, we will contact you immediately. If there are special shipping methods required, we will contact you prior to shipping your order. We ship UPS or best way.

 

Drop Shipping

We do not stock all items listed on the website at all times. Those items will be drop shipped from our distributors. Due to this, your items may be shipped in multiple packages. If items on your order are out of stock from our distributors, you will be notified.

 

Returns

Return requests must be approved, processed, and returned to our distribution center within 30 days of the original invoice date.

All returns are subject to a restocking fee.

All approved RMA’s must include the RMA number and be in sellable condition as determined by Universal Tool & Supply Co.  or the returned merchandise will be returned to the customer and denied credit.

If the return was necessitated by our shipping mistake we will pay for the return freight, otherwise freight is the customer’s responsibility.

Non–stocks, discontinued, and special-order items including direct shipments from the manufacturer will not be available for returns.

All unprocessed RMA requests will be canceled on the 31st day from invoicing.

Claims, shortages, damaged or defective goods must be reported within 10 days after receipt of shipments.

Claims for shortage or damaged material caused by common carrier must be noted at the time of receipt and filed against carrier responsible. The value of defective material is the limit of liability.
