All orders must be submitted in writing by USMail, Fax, or E-mail. Claridge will send an acknowledgment on each order. It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to check quotes, orders and the corresponding acknowledgments for accuracy. Orders will not be scheduled until all required information is received. Minimum order of $25.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS & LEAD TIMES
Upon credit approval, orders will be manufactured and invoiced based upon the information on the acknowledgment. It is the Customer’s responsibility to notify Claridge of any acknowledgment discrepancies. Actual shipment dates may differ from acknowledged dates due to lack of credit approval. If an order is subject to a credit hold, it will be scheduled for shipment only after it is released from credit hold.
Claridge reserves the right to institute changes to material, parts, or design as well as to discontinue models, options, and/or parts without any prior notice. Prices are subject to change without notice.
CPR (CLARIDGE PRIORITY RESPONSE)
Claridge offers three levels of CPR: (1) CPRUrgent – a guarantee that the order will ship within one week once Customer agrees to CPR terms; (2) CPR Express – a guarantee that the order will ship within two weeks once CPR terms are accepted; and (3) CPR Standard – a guarantee that the order will ship within three weeks once terms are accepted. If Customer’s CPR order is shipped late, Claridge pays a 10% penalty for every day the order ships late – up to the total cost of the material.
Prices are valid for 90 days and for the quantities listed on the quote request unless otherwise noted. All prices are quoted in US Dollars. Any special requests that were not noted on the quote request may incur an additional fee.
Claridge reserves the right to apply additional charges to the invoice for orders revised after manufacturing has begun. All changes must be in writing.
For credit approved customers, all merchandise will be invoiced when shipped, with standard terms of net 30 Days.
