Custom orders/Pre Orders
When ordering a custom item or pre-ordering an item that isn’t available yet or is in development, refunds will be available for 30 days from the date of the purchase/deposit or until manufacturing has commenced, whichever comes first. After 30 days or once production has commenced, that deposit or pre-payment is final. Persons who fail to pay the balance on a product or service upon completion will be ineligible for any of our products or services until the balance is settled, including any applicable storage or late payment fees.
Payment for products & services
Payment for products or services is due upon ordering in the case of stock items, or upon completion in the case of custom parts or services. No items will be shipped/shipped back until invoices are paid in full. Balances not settled within 30 days of being due may be subject to a late payment fee of $15 per month. Items which were sent in for service may also be subject to storage fees of $5 to $15 per month, depending on item size, after 30 days if arrangements were not made for us to store your items for a longer period.
Any customer who disputes a charge for an item shipped or a service rendered will be ineligible for any of our products or services, and for any express or implied warranties on our products or services, for an indefinite duration that is at our sole discretion, and we may choose to not communicate with you. Any “chargebacks” will be sent to collections, and may be investigated for fraud. If you have a problem, talk to us; we are very honest, reasonable and customer satisfaction oriented, but we do not take kindly to furtive actions.
Insurance and Shipping Insurance
All customer items are fully covered while in our possession, though it is the customer’s responsibility to provide accurate & truthful documentation of exact value or replacement cost should a claim need to be filed. We provide shipping insurance for item value on all of our products when shipped using our free shipping option. When another shipping method is selected, the customer is responsible for electing to insure the item and for the amount of insurance purchased. Where customer items sent in for service are concerned, shipping is calculated on a case-by-case basis, and we recommend electing to insure your item for at least full replacement cost, including any shipping, fees or taxes paid (for example, a silencer that was purchased for $799 + 8% sales tax +$100 dealer transfer fee + $200 tax stamp should be insured for $1,163 or more).
Customers are required to work with us on filing any insurance/shipping insurance claim for loss or damage to an item or items to determine which party will file the claim and what is required to move forward with a claim. Failure to work with us, to “keep us in the loop” may be considered fraud and could result in criminal and/or civil prosecution.
In the event that a customer item is lost or damaged in shipping or while in our care, repair or replacement costs will be based on current average market cost/value as best it can be determined in the absence of a legitimate appraisal. Appraisals that seem to be illegitimate or inflated may be challenged and could constitute fraudulent activity.
As detailed in our shipping instructions, neither ECCO Machine nor our insurance provider bears any responsibility for items which are claimed to have been sent here but which were not documented in the itemized shipping manifest. We do photograph all incoming parcel contents and documents, and will make contact with our customer immediately if an item that is supposed to be present is not found, or if there appears to be any damage that occurred in transit.
Credit Card Processing
Credit card information is not stored in any fashion by the company; our merchant processor is responsible for all PCI related matters regarding securing the data. All processing is directly and securely linked to their portal for all processing; we have no access to the actual credit card numbers entered except for the last 4 digits of the card. Your credit card safety is our priority and we will do everything within our power to insure it stays safe.
