Order Cancellation: Your order can be cancelled at any time prior to the start of processing. Cancellation becomes difficult or simply impossible once processing starts so call us immediately once you determine you want to cancel.

We will make every effort but may be unable to stop the process as the product may have been pulled from inventory, packaged, on semi-trailer, in transit or other reasons. It may take up to 36 hours to know if our warehouses were truly able to stop the processing. Once the order is processed, any associated credit transaction costs, shipping costs, return fee’s, stoppage fee’s, restock fee’s resulting from the cancellation will be the responsibility of the customer.

Refused Shipment, Damaged & Returns: A refused, damaged or return shipment are all considered the same. The customer is fully responsible for all costs associated with the return shipment along with any original shipping costs. Also, see shipping insurance section as many of these types of shipments are lost or damaged. We must be called prior to any return or refusal as the package me not be able to return to the location from which it was sent. We will provide an RMA number to be added to the package and location to ship if the item is able to be returned or refused. It is not our responsibility to locate the package if the refused or return policies are not followed correctly. Often this results in no product and no refunds while incurring additional fee’s related to the return or refusal. The customer is responsible for inspecting the delivery for damage and notating with delivery company. Any signs of external damage you must notate with the carrier and refuse shipment. Acceptance signed or unsigned is a transfer of responsibility! Once shipped the transfer of responsibility goes to the delivery. We recommend buying insurance on the delivery of your order, see insurance shipping section above. Your claim to damage is in the hands of the carrier not National Supply Network and failure to document upon delivery is with the customer. We can only assist with documented damage claims.
Shipping Estimates: National Supply Network uses an online shipping calculator which varies in accuracy. The estimated amount is used to give the customer a general expectation as to what shipping they may incur. The calculator is reasonably accurate when shipping parcel which is smaller items under 75 pounds of total weight and do not exceed 24 inches in length. Estimates exceeding this become more difficult to estimate properly. Freight truck LTL shipments have many variables that determine actual freight costs. The customer is responsible and obligated for all actual freight costs above the estimated value. It’s best to provide all location information for the most accurate rate estimated and we highly suggest contacting directly so we can shop for the best viable rate. See the freight LTL truck shipping section.

Customer takes full responsibility of goods once the item is signed for at the pickup facility. Item may not be returned in the same manner as it must be shipped and follows the refused shipment & returns section above.
