LTL Freight Deliveries
All doors are shipped via LTL Freight, via a carrier of our choosing. LTL freight shipments are delivered curbside. The receiver will be responsible for removing the crate(s) from the freight truck and moving them to where they intend to be stored. After multiple delivery attempts, if the shipment is stored at the carrier’s facility or returned to Bartels for any reason the Buyer is responsible for any/all incurred charges, including reshipping.
Bartels Doors is not responsible for damage due to improper storage.
An authorized person must be present at the time of delivery. If someone isn’t available to take the delivery additional fees may be invoiced.
The receiver/purchaser or purchaser’s agent must inspect the shipping crate and document any crate damage on the bill of lading with the LTL freight carrier at the time of delivery. All damages must be reported to Bartels within 48 hours of delivery. Failure to comply will disqualify customers from placing any claim of damage of crate contents. If damage is caused but not documented, the purchaser waives all rights to claim damage of crate contents.
Fed Ex Package Deliveries
All packages are shipped with a signature required at the time of delivery.
If a package is shipped back to Bartels Doors due to incorrect shipping address or after multiple unsuccessful deliveries, additional shipping charges may be invoiced prior to any additional shipment.
