Terms & Conditions of Sale
Before a customer’s order is put into production, it will be acknowledged in writing and any applicable deposit or prepayment must be received by us. Clients should review the acknowledgement to insure that the order has been properly entered. Once production has begun, no changes will be accepted without the written approval of MURRAY’S IRON WORKS, INC. (See “Changes” below.)
The order acknowledgement has an Estimated Ship Date based on (1) your request, (2) current workload, and (3) time required to produce the order, including a reasonable amount of time for Murray’s to obtain approvals. It will be assumed that the Estimated Ship Date is acceptable unless you contact MURRAY’S IRON WORKS, INC. immediately upon receipt of the order acknowledgement. Missing information/specifications may delay an order.
Since all of our pieces are made to order, specific information is required to properly complete pieces. Whether for finish selection or missing information, Murray’s provides an approval form to obtain missing information and/or approvals. The time allowed for clients to submit the completed form is typically 10 – 14 days from receipt. Client delays in providing information and/or approvals may cause a delay in shipping the order.
