Shipping policies and inventory expectations
We are diligent in maintaining an accurate list of available products from the manufacturers that we represent. Most products are shipped to customers directly from the product manufacturer. The stock levels published on precision-elec.com may or may not depict actual inventory of our own. Although we have an inventory of products, the relevance of stock levels is directly dependent upon information that manufacturers provide to its distributors. In addition to our physical inventory Stock products published on precision-elec.com reflect stock availability provided to each of the corresponding manufacturers and all inventory is routinely updated. Updates transpire as quickly as humanly possible upon the discovery of or upon the reporting of stock errors or incorrect pricing published on precision-elec.com. If an order is affected by an inventory error or price error, the error in question and/or pricing discrepancy is revised on the website followed by written communication to the customer via email report to ensure that there is written proof of the occurrence. Customers are required to confirm/reply to the email report upon receipt for all revisions to their order related to stock errors or pricing discrepancies. In most cases the order will be placed on hold until the customer responds to the email requesting approval prior to shipment release of the corresponding order. We reserve the right to make or avoid any decision(s) necessary on behalf of the customer with good judgments for unique situations and/or expedited orders when the customer cannot be reached in order to meet a shipment deadline.
The most reliable method to verify stock on any products is via telephone. Call the sales team with the manufacturer and model number and we will check on the spot or we will call you back if a manufacturer needs to be contacted. Outgoing shipments depart between 2:00 pm 3:00 pm (EST). Under the circumstances we must receive the order by 1:00 pm (EST) in order to have enough time to ship it out that same day. Conditions are unique every single business day so we do not guarantee same day shipping on any orders but our goal is to minimize downtime while maximizing production. Therefore we will always do our best to ship out expedited orders the same day that the order is received so long as the order is received by 1:00 pm (EST) and the item(s) ordered are in stock.
Free Ground Shipping for Variable Frequency Drive orders is only applicable to orders containing Variable Frequency Drives. Free Ground Shipping Covers all contiguous US addresses, excluding Alaska (AK) and Hawaii (HI). We do not ship internationally.
All expedited orders will be shipped at the shippers discretion and convenience in order to meet the ship date requested by customer. Preferred shipping carriers are not applicable to orders that are to be shipped via expedited delivery; There is not preferred shipping carrier on expedited orders Regardless of shipping instructions printed on product listings, purchase order(s), account applications, and/or written instructions sent to precision-elec.com staff by email, or fax; Preferred Carriers are redundant On All Expedited Orders. We will do our best to meet your requests but we will put priority on the shipment so that it arrives the following business day (for next day air, two business days for 2-day air, etc) regardless of the customers shipping carrier preference, instructions or requests. Many different companies ship orders for precision-elec.com and all companies shipping for precision-elec.com have been instructed to put priority on expedited shipments despite any additional instructions or requests. This means that if a customer requests FedEx Priority Overnight Collect on Account, the shipper may end up in a situation where they can either ship the order via FedEx Priority Overnight or wait until the next day to ship via UPS (because the daily UPS already came and went for the day). All Expenses in any similar situation are to be paid by the customer. The customer is responsible for paying for the shipping charges corresponding to the services relating to the actual, applicable shipment. We will attempt to meet the customers shipping requirements however we will not be held responsible for any shipping or expedite fees which our vendors apply to customers order(s). The customer is liable for applicable shipping & handling fees or any other service charges associated with their order(s). We aim to maximize productivity and minimize downtime for our customers and this level of service is achieved by allowing our partners and employees to make the most economical decisions available to him or her through the resources available at our disposal at the time of each occurrence.
The most reliable method of checking stock levels for any particular product is via telephone. Always call to confirm a product(s) is in stock and ready to ship. Do not assume that the information published on the website is updated live. Do not assume that an order placed at 5:00 pm or 3:00 pm (EST) will ship same day by adding next day air shipping to your order. Call us with your situation and well exceed our competitors in every possible manner to gain you as a customer. Most manufacturers do not give access to live updated inventory so please do not place expectations upon information that is shown on the precision-elec.com website without calling to verify the stock level or published pricing to ensure your order and expectations are satisfied. If youre broke down or if youre in a bind and need something shipped overnight, call us to confirm the availability and pricing before placing your order. Although we prefer email requisitions to check stock or pricing check, we would rather surpass your expectations than have you make a commitment which only time can tell the final outcome.
