Freight Shipments
Many shipments are too large, too heavy, or too fragile to be shipped via package service and so they must be shipped by an LTL freight carrier. HomePlumbing.com is not liable for damages that occur during shipment. Upon delivery, the driver will provide a delivery receipt to be signed by the customer, as acknowledgement that the goods have arrived in acceptable condition. Any problems, such as damages or shortages, MUST be noted on this receipt. No claims can be made without this information and HomePlumbing.com will not be held responsible for any discrepancies not specified with the carrier. Most items we offer Free Shipping, if its not free, it will be denoted on the page what the shipping price is, In case of any error, we will not process your order until you approve the fee that we are charging.

Carriers will contact customers before delivery and if they are not able to reach the consignee with information provided (i.e. phone numbers, etc) within a 3-5 business days, storage fees begin to accrue at $8 per day. If no contact is made after a determined amount of time, the product will be re-routed back to HomePlumbing.com and any storage fees, return freight costs, and restock fees will apply and be withheld on any refunds to be made for the returned product.
