Shipping & Return policy
Standard Curbside Delivery (Back of Truck Delivery) is included in our Free Shipping only to the contiguous United States. Please contact us if you are Hawaii and Alaska customers regarding extra shipping cost.
Freight shipments come with curbside shipping. This means the freight company is not responsible for carrying the product into the building, unloading the package from the truck, or assembling your purchase. For heavier items, we strongly recommend you have the appropriate assistance available at the time of delivery. The freight company will notify you by phone to schedule a delivery date and time window. Typically, there will be a four-hour time frame for the delivery and someone must be home for the item to be delivered. While most orders are delivered in under 7 business days, please be aware that it can take up to 14 business day for delivery. Customer is also responsible for the following steps.
1. Delivery Appointment - scheduling a delivery appointment when the shipping carrier calls (usually 2-3 days in advance) at a time when you can be home to sign for the items within the carrier’s business hours. Fees resulting from re-delivery will be the sole responsibility of the customer so please does not miss your scheduled delivery appointment. Redelivery can take up to a week depending on your location.
2. Product inspection - When you receive the freight, if there is any sign of damage to the packaging (i.e. scratching, chipping, denting, etc.) please make sure you notate it on the POD (Proof of Delivery). If you notice the specific damage to the product, please explain this in detail on the POD and contact us immediately. If damage is visible on the crate/boxes/packaging, please write "VISIBLE FREIGHT DAMAGE" Signing the POD free and clear without notating damage, means that you have confirmed that you have received your order in PERFECT condition and you will be responsible for paying for replacement pieces in the event that you discover product damage.
Signing the Proof of Delivery will be requested by you from the driver. If you do not notate that there is possible, or even specific damage at the time the POD is signed, a claim cannot be filed and any damages will be your responsibility. Due to shipping company policies this is true no matter the circumstance of the delivery, including driver's rushing, large packages, lack of help or damage that is concealed in the package.
Delivery times and dates are projected, and not definite, they are subject to change depending on weather conditions, traffic conditions, and acts of God. Delays in delivery that are outside of our control are not a reason for order cancellation. Unless a delivery date or deadline was guaranteed in writing to our customer, any order cancellations made due to delivery delays are subject to a 15% restocking fee and round trip shipping cost. Delivery guarantees are void in the event of a natural disaster or an act of God (delivery truck breaking down, car accident, etc.) - any returns or order cancellations made in the event of a natural disaster preventing the delivery from happening on time will be subject to round trip shipping costs and a 15% restocking fee.
Ground shipments may be sent without signature required and may be inspected after arrival unless noticeable damage to the packaging exists. Any and all damage to ground shipments must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org please include your order number and a picture of the damage. The damage on ground shipments must be submitted within 1 business day.
Should the driver not allow an inspection please write the driver's name on the package and note the following "driver refused to allow inspection, possible concealed damage." and take a picture of the packaging, even if it looks to be in good condition. We suggest having a camera available when the product arrives to document the condition of your shipment in the small chance that there is damage.
*Please note that in the rare case of shipping damage it is almost never recommended to refuse the shipment (please see reporting damage). Should damage occur notate damage on all delivery receipts, have the driver note the damage on his copies and accept the delivery. We also suggest taking pictures of the freight and submitting them to bingobilliards.com immediately.
By signing the delivery receipts you are confirming that the item was delivered in 100% perfect condition. Game Room Vaults responsibility with respect to shipments made by common carrier ends with the customer’s signature on the bill of lading. Should the product shipment be signed for without damage or possible damage noted gameroomvaults.com, can no longer file a damage claim with the freight carrier. Therefore, any damage(s) become the customer’s responsibility to claim with the freight carrier. If for some reason, inspection is not possible at the time of the delivery, you must write "possible damage to contents of the crate(s)."
Preparing to receive your shipment:
It is the customer’s responsibility to be prepared to accept all shipments once the delivery appointment is scheduled. This includes but is not limited to:
