Order CancellationsOrders for standard stock products may be cancelled at customer’s request prior to shipment. Specially ordered products must be cancelled by us with the manufacturer before final customer cancellation is approved. On specially manufactured products, where manufacturer’s cancellation charges are involved, customer will absorb these charges.
ShippingAll standard stock products will be delivered via UPS, our truck, or by common carrier depending on weight, size, or negotiated special shipping arrangements. Shipping and handling charges may apply. Non-stock and special products will be shipped either directly to the customer, or to our warehouses, where they will be delivered via one of the methods as described above. Customer will be billed manufacturer freight charges on non-stock and special product orders in addition to any applicable shipping charges. Neill-LaVielle is not responsible for shipping or delivery delays caused by the carrier, computer interruptions, or acts of God.

Back OrdersIf Neill-LaVielle is unable to immediately fill an entire order, the balance of the shipment will be placed on back order. Products in stock will be sent immediately unless otherwise specified. As all pending back orders will be automatically shipped upon their availability, back order cancellations are subject to the Order Cancellations policy above.
ReturnsReturns must be pre-authorized by contacting a customer service representative to obtain a Returned Material Authorization (RMA) within 30 days of original ship date. All returns must be standard stock items, unused and in original unaltered packaging, in good and saleable condition, and must be returned within 30 days of an RMA being issued. RMA numbers should not be marked on product boxes. Instead, please include a copy of the RMA form with the returned shipment and the shipment must be prepaid unless we have erred. Restocking fees are charged as applicable. Returned product and credit are subject to inspection and review. The issuance of the RMA does not constitute a guaranteed credit to customer’s account. Discontinued, special/made to order, and cut to length products are not returnable.
Damages, Shortages and Claims
Should a UPS shipment arrive visibly damaged, REFUSE THE SHIPMENT and call a Neill-LaVielle customer service representative (CSR) to request a replacement. We will initiate a claim with the carrier and a new order for the damaged product. Should a UPS shipment be received with hidden damage, call a CSR to advise of the damages and we will assist you with your claim and enter a new order for the damaged product if necessary. Keep ALL damaged products, container and packaging until you are advised by your CSR. All hidden damage claims must be reported as soon as possible, but no later than 5 business days of receipt of product. Not following these procedures results in acceptance at customer’s own risk. Should a truck or motor freight shipment arrive visibly damaged, REFUSE THE SHIPMENT and sign the delivery receipt “Package Received Damaged”, as ALL VISIBLE DAMAGE MUST BE NOTED AT TIME OF RECEIPT. Should a truck or motor freight shipment be received with hidden damage, the carrier must be notified according to their terms, which is normally within 24 hours of delivery. Keep ALL damaged products, container and packaging for the carrier’s inspection. Not following these procedures results in acceptance at customer’s own risk. For all shipments under a customer’s collect carrier account, the customer must file the claim directly with the carrier.
