SHIPPING & RETURNS POLICY FOR ALL CLOCKS – AND WARRANTY POLICIES BY COMPANY
DAMAGE IN SHIPPING
Please read the following carefully. Failure to follow these guidelines and instructions could result in your financial loss, regardless of claim.
DELIVERY BY COMMON CARRIER:
This is delivery by other than UPS & USPS. This type of delivery will be made for the order of a Grandfather clock and some large and heavy wall clocks, curio cabinets, and other large heavy items where shipment by common carrier truck is necessary. If your item is damaged in shipment and delivered by freight company (NOT UPS or FedEx or USPS), YOU MUST NOTE THE DAMAGE ON THE FREIGHT BILL AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY FOR A CLAIM TO BE VALID. FAILURE TO NOTE THE DAMAGE ON THE DELIVERY FREIGHT BILL, WITH SIGNATURE OF DRIVER DELIVERING PRODUCT, WILL VOID YOUR ABILITY TO SEEK REIMBURSEMENT FOR DAMAGES. IF THE DAMAGE IS NOTICED WHILE DELIVERY IS BEING MADE, IT IS IN YOUR BEST INTEREST TO REFUSE THE SHIPMENT AND NOTIFY US IMMEDIATELY. A REPLACEMET WILL BE SENT AND WE WILL HANDLE THE CLAIMS PROCESS.
Please remember: IF YOU ACCEPT THE DELIVERY OF A DAMAGED CLOCK, DELIVERED BY A FREIGHT COMPANY (trucks carrying very large objects, e.g. grandfather clocks, curio cabinets), AND YOU DO NOT REFUSE THE CLOCK, AND YOU DO NOT NOTE ANY DAMAGE ON THE FREIGHT BILL, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ASSIST YOU WITH YOUR CLAIM. YOU WILL HAVE TO PROCESS THE CLAIM YOURSELF, AND IT MAY WELL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL.

If any insurance claim is necessary, buyer is fully responsible for processing the claim (1-800-4CLOCKS would of course assist in any reasonable way necessary),
Clocks will be delivered in the original factory carton, with easy set-up instructions. Shipping time is 1 to 3 weeks if the clock is in stock with the manufacturer.

Clocks must be in 100% new or like-new condition, with all original packing and materials-fillers.
