SHIPPING LEAD TIMES: Shipping lead times vary by product and country of origin. For products inventoried by Architessa, typical lead times are 1-3 business days. Special order products may take anywhere between 2-14 weeks - please contact an Architessa rep for specific lead times.
FREIGHT: Shipping products from vendors across the country is an expensive proposition. Many companies choose to show only very limited varieties which they can obtain locally or have in stock. Our business has been built on showing a vast array of product that comes from many countries and manufacturers; therefore most items are not stock but must be shipped. We ship and quote prices only from bonafide trucking companies that we believe are competitive. Please be aware that in many cases freight is assessed to you and is your responsibility. These charges are from the manufacturers to us not to your job; unless the material is drop shipped. Delivery to your location is a separate charge payable by you.
DROP SHIPMENTS: With specialty products if the vendor permits and unless otherwise instructed by the customer we will drop ship directly from the vendor to a location designated by the customer. All drop shipments are curbside only. It is required that the customer or their agent be at the job site at time of delivery to inspect materials for correct quantities and verify the accuracy of the material ordered. If the job site is unattended the carrier will not deliver the material and the material will be brought back to the carrier's warehouse adding additional costs. Delivery charges will not be refunded and any subsequent delivery will be charged separately. Architessa is not responsible for items damaged by the carrier. Drop shipped products will otherwise be governed by the terms and conditions contained herein.
TITLE AND DELIVERY: All shipments by Architessa are F.O.B. Architessa’s facility, or, if applicable, the facility of an Architessa affiliate or agent. Title and risk of loss or damage to products passes to Buyer upon delivery to Buyer if delivered in Architessa’s trucks, or in the case of a common carrier, from Architessa’s facility, or, if applicable, the facility of an Architessa affiliate or agent. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that delivery dates, when quoted, are estimates only and may change. Many factors delay shipments. Architessa uses reasonable efforts to deliver in accordance with quoted delivery dates. However, Architessa shall not be liable for nonperformance or delays caused by a shortage of raw materials, manufacturing problems, delivery or labor problems, priorities, acts of regulatory agencies or judicial bodies, discontinuation of a product line, acts of God or third parties, infringement claims, or other causes beyond its reasonable control.
Architessa reserves the right to make delivery in installments. All such installments shall be separately invoiced and paid for when due, without regard to subsequent deliveries. Delay of any shipment shall not relieve the buyer of its obligation to accept remaining installments. In the event that Architessa’s ability to supply products becomes constrained, for any reason whatsoever, Architessa may reduce quantities, delay shipments, or allocate products among its customers at its discretion.
If part or all of the products are to be delivered from outside of the continental borders of the United States, and such products are not available for any reason, then Architessa may in its reasonable discretion replace the same with like products, but shall be under no obligation to do so. If Architessa does not replace same, then Architessa shall notify Buyer within a reasonable period of time and as Buyer’s sole and exclusive remedy Architessa shall give Buyer credit based upon Buyer’s prepayments, if any, for the products.
All deliveries are curbside only. It is required (or a release needs to be signed) that customer or their agent is at the jobsite at time of delivery to inspect materials for correct quantities and material ordered. If the job site is unattended Architessa will not deliver the material the material will be brought back to our warehouse. Delivery charges will not be refunded and any subsequent delivery will be charged separately. Any product not scheduled for delivery or picked up within thirty (30) days after notice that it is available at our warehouse will be subject to a storage fee of 1% of the invoice price for each month or partial month after the initial thirty (30) day notice. Product not picked up or scheduled for delivery within six (6) months after notice of availability will be considered abandoned and may be disposed of as Architessa deems appropriate.
