SHIPPING FROM SIERRA VICTOR’S FACILITY

  1. All items shipped from Sierra Victor’s facility are shipped FOB Port Orange, FL.

Thereafter, the carrier shall be deemed to be acting for and on behalf of the buyer. The terms of payment for the equipment for the item shall not be affected by damage to or destruction of the item sold.
  4. Damages Re Free Freight: Any items shipped with Free Freight should be thoroughly inspected by the purchaser upon receipt. Should there be visible damage to the packaging or crating, the damage should be noted on the form the driver gives you to sign. If you fail to do this and upon opening the crate the damage is more substantial that it appeared to be, and you to wish to make a claim, there is little that can be done for you. If you receive a package or crate which appears to be intact and when you open it there is hidden damage, you have 15 days in which to contact the delivering carrier. If severe damage is present, call Sierra Victor Industries and refuse the shipment. For more information regarding our other policies, please review our Terms & Conditions page.
