Terms and Conditions
Prices and Terms
All prices in INW Price Lists and forms are shown in U.S. dollars, unless specifically stated otherwise, FOB INW’s shipping point. Prices, specifications, and policy statements are current at time of printing and are subject to change without notice.
To place an order, or if you have questions about INW products, ordering, or shipping information, call one of our customer service representatives at 800-776-9355.
For orders exceeding $1000, we require a written or faxed copy of the Purchase Order or confirming document, complete with authorizing signature.
Terms of Payment
Payment may be through established credit, or by VISA® or Mastercard® charge cards. Customers are normally invoiced on the date of shipment. Payment is due within 30 days of invoicing. Late payments are subject to the maximum interest charges allowed by law.
Sales and Use Tax
INW is required to collect sales and use taxes as appropriate by local taxing authorities. If orders from your organization are tax-exempt, please provide the appropriate documentation at the time of the order.
In some cases discounts are available. Talk to your sales representative for more information.
For items that are cancelable and have been shipped, the customer must return the order or notify INW within 10 days or it will be considered accepted. Additionally, INW charges a restocking charge of 15%. Shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer.
INW will quote items that are non-cancelable. For items that are non-cancelable, once work has commenced on the item cancellations will not be accepted.
Shipping and Transportation
INW’s Shipping Departments will select the best method of shipment, and will accommodate rush shipments by air at an additional charge when regulations permit. Hazardous materials are shipped according to applicable transportation regulations. INW reserves the right to approve carriers, modes, and rate of transportation. Delivery is complete when INW places the shipment with the first carrier, and risks of loss or damage in transit are the responsibility of the buyer.
Tracking and Claims
Should your purchase not reach its destination, INW will assist you in tracking the shipment. If your freight appears to be damaged when you receive it, do not accept it from the carrier. If you have completed acceptance and discover hidden damage, contact the carrier for assistance with filing a claim.
Normal business transactions inevitably require an occasional return of merchandise for exchange, credit, repair, or warranty replacement. No material may be returned without INW’s express consent and proper documentation. All shipments to INW must be labeled with an RMA number (provided by INW) or the shipment will be returned to the sender.
Return merchandise will only be accepted if:
- Product is defective
- Product was shipped from our warehouse in error
- Written approval is granted for special circumstances
INW does not accept any return without a valid Return Authorization Number (RMA). RMA numbers are valid for 15 days from date of issue. Please call 1-800-776-9355 for a Return Authorization Number.
