Damages and Freight claims
a carrier (UPS or common) takes possession of a shipment, they
sign and acknowledge receiving product in good order. Once they
take possession, we are no longer responsible for the condition
of the product(s) at time of delivery. All common carrier
deliveries require a signature. It is the customer's
responsibility to inspect the shipment prior to acceptance. If
there is visible damage (i.e. Forklift punctures; shrink wrap is
broken, torn, and cases are missing) then the customer must note
the damage on the bill of lading. If you have no time to inspect
the boxes upon delivery, please note the following on the Bill
of Lading: "Boxes are subject to inspection at time of
delivery. Customer will notify carrier of pending damage within
24 hours." This gives you time to look over the product,
yet allows the carrier to know that possible damage may have
occurred before you took possession of it. It is the
responsibility of the customer to fill a damage claim with the
carrier, Affordable Seating can help you file the claim on your
behalf. The carrier will reimburse the customer for their loss.
of order is possible prior to the production or packaging of the items
ordered. Custom made products (using upholstery materials,
special stains or finishes, size or shapes) cannot be returned or cancelled at any point because they
were manufactured based on your specifications. You may be able
to cancel or return items that are "stock items".
Returning or cancelling an order with
"stock-items", involves a re-stocking fee of 30%. This also applies on orders which were packaged but were cancelled prior of shipping.
In case of a return, you will forfeit all shipping expenses paid by you. All items must be
returned in original manufacturer's boxes and will be inspected
at time of arrival. You will also be responsible for packing the items,
and the cost of doing so. Therefore, is your responsibility to keep the
original manufacturer's boxes and packing materials. In case of damage to
the returned product, you will be charged the item's full price as appears on the
original order. Even if we mistakenly ship the wrong product, you are still responsible for
packing the items on pallets for the return shipment.

Custom Booth Orders, Sizes and Shapes
We reserve the right to manufacture custom booths, shapes and lengths as needed to accommodate shipping restrictions. This includes splitting linear (wall benches, singles, doubles) and nonlinear shapes (rounded booths, u shaped booths, etc.) to pieces when necessary. Normally linear segments of 72" and up or nonlinear segments of over 48" will be manufactured in multiple sections. For example, if you order a 150" booth, you will not receive it one piece. Instead and based on the shipping requirements we may split it into two pieces of 75" or 3 pieces of 50". If you order a U shaped booth of 48" x 90" x 48", we will most likely split it into two segments of 48" x 45".
