Deliveries quoted are the best estimate of the Company at the time of the quotation. They may vary due to an influx of orders, supplier delays, strikes, acts of nature or other causes beyond the control of the Company. Every reasonable effort will be made by the Company to meet or exceed the quoted delivery. The Company will not be liable for any expenses or charges due to late delivery for any reason. Delivery is considered when the goods are delivered to the transportation company. Deliveries are normally quoted A.R.O. (after receipt of approved drawings) which means signed approval drawings with no changes received at the Company. All orders are scheduled to ship during a particular week. The Company will not be required to ship on a particular day.
