Recognized abbreviations of first names are acceptable, but do not use an alias.

We will not ship our products or any other ITAR & export controlled items outside of the United States of America, and our services are not available to international customers, including foreign governments.

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 being returned after 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).
When we provide the shipping label, 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 while in our care or in shipping from us on a label we provide, 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.
Items sent to ECCO Machine for service, exchange, refund or warranty with a customer or 3rd party procured shipping label: It is the responsibility of the customer to select appropriate shipping methods & insurance, and to deal with any carrier loss or damage claims, though we will provide any documentation we can to assist with the claims process.
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.
ECCO Machine is not responsible for carrier loss or damage and will not cover any loss if the customer elects to purchase no shipping insurance, to insure for less than replacement cost, or for the loss of any items which the carrier has delivered/claims to have delivered without collecting a signature from our staff.
Credit/Debit Card Processing
Credit/Debit 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. We will not request your card information by phone, text or email or paper mail, and you should not volunteer it outside of the Authorize.net secure portal we use for invoicing.
