US Tool and Fastener, a division of Angel-Guard Products, Inc., Policies

We don’t like legal policies any more than you do. We just want to buy our tools and get to work, same as you. As we put together our policies, we did our best to avoid too much “lawyer legalese,” and just put them in plain English. If you have any questions on these policies, please give us a call. Although we’d much rather talk about tools, we’re happy to talk about policy too. 877-777-4717.

 

PRICING POLICY

At US Tool and Fastener, a division of Angel-Guard Products, Inc., we use our best efforts to fulfill all orders as quickly as possible. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of any particular product displayed on this site. Large orders happen and sometimes our inventory gets wiped out, but we’ll always do our best to get more in stock as soon as we can so the long as the product is available to us.

Our goal is to maintain an error-free website, though we do not guarantee that any content is accurate or complete, including pricing and product specifications. This includes, but is not limited to, pricing incorrectly displayed, inaccurate shipping discounts, or other inaccuracies. We reserve the right at any time to reject, correct, or cancel any order for any reason whatsoever at our discretion.

The prices listed on our sites are displayed in U.S. Dollars, and are valid and effective only within the United States of America.

From time to time, we may offer special discounts that are only available in store at our Worcester, MA location. Store-only discounts may not be available for online customers due to distribution agreements with our vendors.

We are, however, not able to sell to other dealers or retailers who are tax exempt under a reseller certificate. Agreements with our vendors prohibit us from doing so.

Back orders / Ships from Manufacturer

In the event an item on your order is not available to ship within the availability window listed on the product page, we shall either ship direct from factory or reserve to await arrival of backordered items.  Additionally, some items are not stocked at our warehouse. These items are marked as “Ships direct from manufacturer.” Please, be aware that factory direct shipments can take up to 3-5 days to process and ship, and additional transit time will be required.  You will still receive tracking numbers via email for factory direct orders once we have confirmation of shipment from the vendor.  A customer service agent will contact you in the event of a back order, but should you have any questions please reach out to us at 1-877-777-4717.

Oversized/Freight Shipments

Oversized shipments that exceed UPS shipping restrictions will ship on a pallet via an LTL (less than truckload) carrier and may involve special delivery requirements.  Should your order fall into this category, a customer service agent will contact you with additional information prior to shipping. Orders shipped using a freight/LTL service are unable to be cancelled or modified once the order has been confirmed. Once in transit, we are unable to make changes to the shipping address. US Tool is not responsible for any fees associated with changes after the order has been confirmed; any additional fees resulting from a change after order confirmation will be the responsibility of the customer.

Thoroughly inspect all freight deliveries upon arrival! If you notice any damage to the packaging, please take photos while the driver is still there. Be sure to note any damage on the Bill of Lading with the driver. MAKE SURE TO KEEP A COPY! Contact us immediately. Freight claims need to be made within 24 hours of delivery, and we are unable to guarantee any claim made outside of that 24-hour window.
