Here at Shearer Supply, Inc. ("Shearer Supply"), customer service and your satisfaction are our first priority. We commit to using quality products at consistently competitive pricing with on time, every time deliveries to guarantee "Customer Satisfaction." We appreciate your business and in order to deliver on our commitment to Customer Satisfaction, we need to detail the important terms governing your purchase of products from us (the"Terms of Sale").
These Terms of Sale, combined with a completed Quote (together, the "Agreement"), establish the entire contract between Shearer Supply and you, the potential customer ordering products ("Customer") for delivery specified in the quote from your checkout (the "Quote") at www.shearersupply.com (the "Site"). Once an Agreement is accepted, it becomes an "Order." These terms are a binding agreement between Shearer Supply and Customer for purchase of the products listed in the Quote (the "Products").
Customer will not use any of Shearer Supply's registered marks in connection with the Products purchased from Shearer Supply.
The Customer accepts the terms of the Agreement by taking any of the following actions:
Any provisions contained in any of Customer-maintained purchase order, terms and conditions rider or similar document are expressly rejected by Shearer Supply and are not part of the Agreement. Payment must be made when the Customer checks out at the Site or the Customer must agree to make payment according to the credit extended to Customer by Shearer Supply, which is subject to ongoing review by Shearer Supply. Shearer Supply may, in its sole discretion, deem Customer's credit to be unsatisfactory and may require different payment terms on a case-by-case basis. Such varied payment terms may include payment in full before shipment of the Products. Shearer Supply has the right to apply any payment received to open charges on the Customer's account and all payments due and owing by Customer to Shearer Supply bear interest at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. Customer has no right to set-off any amounts due to it from invoices related to this or any other Agreement between the parties.
If a Customer requires a change to an accepted Order, Customer will contact Shearer Supply by emailing [email protected] with details of the changes (a "Change Order"). Change Order requests (including a request for "Rush" delivery), will be accepted by Shearer Supply in its sole discretion and no Change Order is effective until accepted by Shearer Supply. Payment of fees for Change Orders is due upon acceptance of the Change Order by Customer.
Returns are accepted when an item is in the same condition as purchased and returned within 30 days of date of purchase. Shipping costs are not refunded. Returns received after 30 days of invoice date are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Returns are not accepted on special orders.

Any charges incurred related to shipment of Products, even if not specified in the Quote, will be the responsibility of Customer. Shearer Supply shall not be in breach of the Agreement for the delay in delivery resulting from the conduct of a third party, including its suppliers or shippers.
