We make every effort to minimize freight charges to our customers and provide for timely delivery.

Frame machines: Shipping time is within 3-5 business days from receiving the order. We do assemble the frame machines prior to shipping them via flatbed carrier.
Paint booths: Shipping time is 5-10 business days to build and ship most booth models.
Air Makeup Units: Production is 5-15 business days. Remember, these units are built and tested to your specific requirements, so building doesn't begin until payment and terms are received.
If an item is out-of-stock or on backorder, we will ship the item to you as soon as it is back in stock. For backorder items, give our sales team a call and they can let you know the ETA on receiving it back in stock.

Delivery and Unloading
Customer is responsible for unloading shipment from truck. Tools USA will assume no responsibility for any additional charges or damages that may be incurred as a result of unloading from the delivering carrier's truck. Freight carriers have restrictions on delivering to residential addresses and may require pick-up at freight terminal. Lifts will require a forklift to unload. Lifts cannot be unloaded using a lift gate vehicle. It is advantageous in those cases to ship to a freight terminal where the terminal personnel will unload the product and load it onto the customer's trailer or truck.
We cannot advise customers of exact time of delivery, as we do not ship on our own trucks. We will give our customers an estimated time of delivery and provide them with tracking information. For the most accurate delivery time, you can request a delivery appointment, which may be an additional charge from the freight company.
All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt. For your protection, any external damage must be noted on the Bill of Lading at the time of delivery in order to qualify for a claim against the freight carrier. Concealed damages must be reported to the freight company within three days of delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to file for damage claims against the freight company. More information on damaged shipments can be found on our blog.
Shortages/missing parts must be reported to Tools USA customer service within three days of delivery.
Tools USA has a nationwide network of independent installers for our auto lifts. Please call 1-800-336-2776 to find an installer in your area. These installers do not work for Tools USA, therefore this is an arrangement that is made between the customer and the installer.
All products that appear on our websites or in our catalogs are warranted by Tools USA or the manufacturer against defects in material and workmanship to the extent of the manufacturer's warranty. No other warranties are implied. Contact our sales and customer service department for the warranty on specific models.
We provide a 1-year, parts warranty only. No warranty provided on labor, loss of product use, or loss of business revenue and profits.
Warranty returns for defective products or parts must be authorized in advance and a claim must be applied for by the expiration of the warranty period. Customer is responsible for returning the defective product in sufficient packaging to prevent damage during return. Product returned as defective that proves upon inspection not to be defective will be subject to a minimum restocking fee of 20% plus return freight. Credit for warranty returns to third party vendors will be subject to their returns policy.
Replacement products or parts will be sent out at "No Charge" upon receipt of the defective product from the customer. Alternatively, if the customer wishes to have the warranty replacement shipped prior to the return of the defective product, then the customer must pay for the replacement product at shipping. Credit/refund will be issued to customer upon receipt of defective product. Customer is responsible for loading and unloading warranty replacements.
All returns must be authorized prior to shipping. Contact our Customer Service Department (800-336-2776) for instructions and a return authorization number.
