Only such terms and conditions shall constitute the agreement between the parties.

The following terms and conditions apply to any order.

  1. Agreement. By ordering or accepting the goods described in any order, buyer agrees to the terms and conditions set forth herein, none of which may be added to, modified, superseded or otherwise altered except by a written instrument signed by a authorized representative of Toolwell and delivered to buyer. Any different or additional terms and buyer's acknowledgement, purchase order or other document of buyer are hereby rejected, notwithstanding any terms and conditions that may be contained in such acknowledgement, purchase order or other document of buyer and notwithstanding Toolwell's act of shipping goods or similar act of Toolwell. If this offer shall be deemed and acceptance of a prior offer by Toolwell, such acceptance is expressly conditioned on Toolwell's written assent to any additional or different terms contained herein. Acceptance of orders, and delivery thereunder, are at all times subject to the approval of Toolwell's financial officer at Charlotte, North Carolina.

  2. Denial of Service: Toolwell reserves the right to deny service to any customer. Such an instance will occur from misuse of the site, obvious misuse of its products, harassment towards customer service representatives, or any other form of abuse or misuse directed towards Toolwell.

  3. Terms of payment. Invoices are issued as of date of shipment covering deliveries from our stocks and are due and payable in lawful money of the United States of America upon the issuance thereof unless otherwise specifically agreed in writing. The acceptance of any order or specification and terms of payment on all sales and orders is subject to approval of Toolwell's credit department, and Toolwell may at any time decline to make any shipment or delivery or perform any work except upon receipt of payment or security or upon terms and conditions satisfactory to Toolwell's credit department.

    If payment is made via electronic means, all bank charges are to be paid by buyer. The only method in which this term may be superseded is with a Toolwell written quotation, prior to order placement.

    All orders are subject to product availability.

    Toolwell reserves the right to change the prices at any time. Orders are not binding upon Toolwell until accepted by Toolwell. The customer is responsible for – and will hold Toolwell unaccountable for – applicable sales, use or other taxes in addition to federal, state or local fees or assessments which may apply to any purchase from Toolwell.

    Toolwell is not liable for pricing errors. If customer places an order for a product that was incorrectly priced, Toolwell will cancel the customer's order and credit customer for any charges. In the event that Toolwell inadvertently ships an order based on a pricing error, Toolwell will issue a revised invoice to the customer for the correct price and contact the customer to obtain the customer's authorization for the additional charge, or assist the customer with return of the product. If the pricing error results in an overcharge to the customer, TOOLWELL will credit the customer's account for the amount overcharged.

  4. Late penalty. All unpaid items will be charged a 1.5 percent per month late penalty beginning the second month following delivery of shipment, such charges not to exceed the maximum charge permitted by law.

  5. Title. Except on goods sold pursuant to a conditional sales contract, all goods delivered from Toolwell's stock, on any sales resulting from this quotation shall be complete and title shall pass upon payment in full.

  6. Shipping: Toolwell is not responsible for shipments which become lost or damaged in transit, as all items are shipped FOB Origin and become the customer's and the shipping carrier's responsibilities once leaving the warehouse docks. However, in the event of a lost or damaged shipment, please call our toll free number within 10 (ten) business days of a delivery receipt of a damaged shipment or within 10 (ten) business days of the discovery of a lost shipment. Our customer service center will offer to assist the customer in filing a claim and/or taking action with the shipping carrier in order to achieve a satisfying outcome; this may result in the acquirement of a previously "lost" product or the financial reimbursement for the insured amount of the item. Please keep in mind that Toolwell offers assistance but cannot guarantee a satisfying outcome from the shipper.

    Delivery times are estimates and vary by product availability, product type, distribution center location, pickup time, holidays and other conditions involved in the logistics of shipping. There is no guarantee regarding shipping times. Toolwell does its best to deliver the products within the specified time but is not responsible for delays in the shipping, no matter what contributing factor arises.

    Toolwell is not responsible for delays outside of our immediate control, including delays related to order processing or unexpected increase in demand. Typically only orders paid for by credit card receive credit approval on the same day the order is placed. Orders delayed due to order processing will default to an Estimated Ship Date 30 days from the date credit is processed and the order is released. Estimated Ship Dates are based on any known extended lead times.
