Terms and Conditions
On web orders, all product descriptions, quantities, stock-status and pricing will be confirmed via email shortly after the order has been received. Therefore, we do not need you to send a written confirmation. If your system dictates that you must send a confirmation, please ensure that it is clearly marked as such. Should a duplicate shipment be made as a result of a confirmation that is not identified as a confirmation, a restocking fee may be charged.
Every order is important to us at Caledon. Although we do not have a minimum order requirement, orders under $100.00 in product will be subject to a $10.00 surcharge.
Our products are shipped in full compliance with Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations.
Unless specified otherwise, your order will be shipped via the most economical and efficient means. Normally, shipments are FOB our stocking location, with shipping charges being prepaid and added to the invoice. Certain products may be subject to additional Dangerous Goods charges or special packaging fees. If you request a specific carrier that is not regularly used by Caledon, the shipment must be sent collect.
The responsibility for lost or damaged goods shipped FOB the shipping point rests with the purchaser. Caledon will assist, however, if there is any difficulty in settling a claim. On receipt of goods, any damage or shortages should be noted on your freight bill or receipt. Hidden damage should be reported to the carrier within seven days of receipt of the shipment.
Orders destined for the United States are shipped FOB Georgetown, ON and are billed in U.S. dollars.
Other International Shipments
International orders can be shipped FOB Canada or CIF the customerís port of entry. Sea and air shipments of laboratory chemicals are subject to a number of regulations. As a result, service charges may be applied to the invoice to cover the cost of meeting these regulations. All orders shipped outside of Canada will be billed in U.S. dollars.
With established credit, payment terms are net thirty (30) days from date of issuance of invoice unless Buyer is otherwise advised in writing by Seller. Late payments will be charged interest at 18% per annum, compounded monthly, minimum $25 per invoice. All payments must include the invoice number and your customer account number, both of which are shown on our invoice.
New accounts are always welcome. Simply provide three trade references along with the account application. We accept VISA, MasterCard, and American Express, cheque or money orders.
