Packages are generally dispatched within 3-5 business days after receipt of payment and are shipped via souqmetal® fleet services or other local leased services with tracking and drop-off with signature.
Transport fees vary according to total weight of the shipment. We advise you to group your items in one order. We cannot group two distinct orders placed separately, and shipping fees will apply to each of them. Your package will be dispatched at your own risk, but special care is taken to protect fragile objects.
Material that is placed on back order will be shipped at time of inventory replenishment. Actual delivery dates and transit times are estimated only, and are subject to sources or carrier conditions beyond our control and are NOT GUARANTEED. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CUSTOMER TO UNLOAD ORDERS FROM THE DELIVERING CARRIER.
Please make sure that upon delivery that you have the proper equipment or manpower to unload your order and that your location is easily accessible by tractor trailer truck. If you need special packing or delivery accommodations, arrangements should be made with us prior to shipping as additional fees may be incurred. In the event your order is not unloaded at time of delivery and must be rescheduled or shipped to another address, additional charges may be incurred.
YOU MUST INSPECT YOUR ORDER IMMEDIATELY UPON DELIVERY FOR DAMAGES, SHORTAGES, and ACCURACY. YOUR SIGNATURE ON THE CARRIERS DELIVERY RECEIPT INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR ORDER CORRECTLY AND UNDAMAGED UNLESS NOTED OTHERWISE. BEFORE ACCEPTING DELIVERIES YOU MUST INSPECT AND NOTE ANY DAMAGES OR SHORTAGES ON DRIVER'S DELIVERY RECEIPT. NO EXCEPTIONS! DO NOT REFUSE YOUR SHIPMENT AS YOU MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REDELIVERY OF YOUR ORDER. We will work with you in replacement of the damaged items.
Failure to note damages or shortages at time of delivery on drivers receipt indicates your acceptance of this shipment as is and waives your right to future claims. In the event of a problem, we must be notified within 24 hours of receiving your order. Failure to notify us within 24 hours indicates your acceptance of material as is. In the event of damage, be sure to retain the entire outer shipping container and carton (and packing material) in which damaged goods were packed. The damaged merchandise must be in the original container when inspected by the carrier.
Shortages or errors in shipment of orders should be noted on shipper form at time of receipt and reported to Souq Metal within 24 hours. Every effort will be made to assist you in filing a claim with the carrier, make corrections and/or remedy in a timely fashion.
