If you have placed an order and would like to cancel or change the order or otherwise modify the information that you entered on the order form (i.e. shipping address, billing address, etc.), you may do so if the order has not been processed and shipped by calling our Customer Service Department at 800-331-0097, option 1. Because we typically ship within 24 business hours of receipt of an order, it is important that any cancellation or change be made promptly. Our Customer Service Representatives will do everything that they can to stop an order from being shipped. However, once an order has been placed, there is no guarantee that we can stop shipment! In the event that we ship your order prior to receiving your cancellation or change request, you may return any or all items by using our return procedure. Please be aware that restocking and freight fees associated with returns will apply. (See Return Policy and Procedure).
TEC offers complimentary free shipping on all orders that include grills that are shipped to a location within the Continental United States. THE G-SPORT PEDESTAL, ACCESSORIES AND PARTS SHIPPED ALONE DO NOT QUALIFY FOR FREE SHIPPING. Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii as well as Canada do not qualify for free shipping; however, a discount equal to a standard U.S. shipping fee will be applied. Customers located in Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii must submit their order by telephone by contacting our Customer Service Department at 800-331-0097, option 1. An individual quote for shipping will be calculated at this time. Returns are not eligible for free shipping. On any return, the customer is responsible for all shipping charges, including any costs incurred in getting the product both to and from the customer unless the item is damaged or defective. (See our Return Policy and Procedure).
We ship outside the Continental United States to Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii. Orders shipped to these areas must be made via telephone by calling our Customer Service Department at 800-331-0097, option 1. Although shipments made outside of the Continental United States are not eligible for free shipping, a discount equal to a standard US shipping fee will be applied. The customer is responsible for all duties and tariffs on Canadian shipments.
Full Size grills and cabinets typically leave our warehouse within 5 business days and are normally delivered within 1 week of the ship date. These items are shipped via freight carrier. Please be aware that we do not control the shipping companies and cannot make delivery happen on a certain day. Shipping outside the Continental United States usually takes 4-6 weeks. The freight carrier will contact you prior to delivery to arrange a delivery time. The phone number used to contact you will be the daytime and evening phone numbers that you provide when you make your order.
Once the freight carrier has contacted you to arrange a delivery time you must respond to their call within 1 business day. If the freight carrier must store your shipment due to the fact that you have not responded to their call, you will be responsible for paying all storage fees.
DO NOT MISS YOUR DELIVERY APPOINTMENT. A redelivery and/or storage fee will be charged to you if there is no one present to accept delivery. If you authorize the freight carrier to leave the delivery without someone present to inspect and accept it, TEC will not be responsible for damages that may occur during shipment.
A signature of the party accepting the shipment is required by the freight carrier at the time of delivery. DO NOT SIGN THE CARRIER’S DELIVERY RECEIPT WITHOUT FIRST INSPECTING THE SHIPMENT. Make sure that you count your packages and that the number of packages you receive is consistent with the number noted on the delivery receipt. If it is not, you may sign the delivery receipt and accept the shipment; however, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU NOTE ON THE DELIVERY RECEIPT THE CORRECT NUMBER OF PACKAGES RECEIVED AND NOTIFY OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT OF THE SHORTAGE, NOT THE FREIGHT COMPANY. It is also the customer’s responsibility to inspect for damage (see Inspecting Shipment for Damage below). If you authorize the freight carrier to leave a delivery without a signature or if you do not inspect your shipment for damages or the correct number of packages received at the time of delivery, TEC will not be held responsible for the damages or missing packages you later find.
A complete street address is required for delivery. Because full size grill and cabinet orders are sent via freight carrier, we are unable to ship these items to rural routes, remote areas not in close proximity to areas commonly serviced by freight carriers, APO/FPO addresses or P.O. Boxes.SHIPMENTS MADE BY FREIGHT CARRIERS ARE CURBSIDE ONLY. They will be delivered to the nearest ground level entrance of your home or business. Exceptions include apartments, unusual driveways, narrow or winding roads, dirt or gravel roads or any other obstacles that impede delivery. For apartment residents, deliveries are typically left at the apartment’s main office. It is the customer’s responsibility to inform us of any problems with this type of delivery at the time of purchase. Some freight carriers offer additional assistance for a fee, but this must be arranged through our Customer Service Department when making your order.
We put a Shockwatch on some of our boxes to help you determine whether a package has been dropped or otherwise mishandled during shipping. The instructions on the Shockwatch notify the customer that the color red on the test strip indicates potential shipping damage and that the customer must note this on the delivery receipt. Below is a picture of a Shockwatch that has not been activated.
If at the time of delivery, a package appears to be torn, crushed, dented, or otherwise damaged or if the Shockwatch has been activated (red appearing on the test strip), you should ask the freight driver to open the carton and inspect the contents with you. The driver is required to wait for you to unpackage the item and inspect it if there is reason to believe that the item has been damaged during shipping. If damage is found, refuse the shipment and write “Refused due to Damage” on the delivery receipt. Be sure to keep a copy of the delivery receipt with your damage notations and report the damage to our Customer Service Department as soon as possible. If there is no obvious evidence of damage to the item despite the fact that the carton has been dented or crushed or the Shockwatch activated, you may sign the delivery receipt and accept the shipment. HOWEVER, IT IS IMPORTANT that you note on the delivery receipt “Damaged” as this will allow us to file a claim in the event concealed damage is later found.
If the Shockwatch has not been activated and the carton is in good condition, the freight driver is not required to wait for the customer to unpack and examine the item. Once you sign the delivery receipt and accept the shipment, the driver will depart and it is your responsibility to unpack and inspect the item for damage immediately. PLEASE KEEP ALL PACKAGING MATERIAL in case you discover damage or defects after delivery so that you can repackage the item for return.
IMPORTANT: Freight carriers require that we report shipping damage within 15 days of delivery. On occasion concealed damage cannot be detected visibly. It is therefore imperative that you assemble and use your grill after you have unpackaged and inspected it within the time restrictions imposed by the freight carriers for reporting damage. Refer to your Owner’s Manual for operating instructions and guidelines. If you detect that your grill is not operating within the guidelines set forth in the Owner’s Manual, please contact our Customer Service Department immediately.
TEC offers free shipping on all standard deliveries of grill orders. However, shipping fees will be charged to customers under the following circumstances:
You may return any TEC product with or without cause under the following conditions:
If a customer returns or refuses to accept delivery on a non-defective, undamaged product, the customer will be charged a 20% restocking fee as well as shipping costs both ways. These fees will be deducted from your refund after the item is received and inspected at our warehouse.
If an item is damaged upon arrival or if we ship the wrong item due to our error, we will pay for the return shipping and send you a replacement at no extra charge; however, the customer must notify TEC within 15 days.
If a product is defective, TEC will repair or replace the product within the warranty period free of charge. For more details, refer to the warranty page in the Owner’s Manual.
We ship smaller items by UPS, FED EX, etc. The same Return Policy and Procedures apply to parts and accessories as to grills. The customer is responsible for arranging the shipping of returns of smaller items that are not defective or damaged. We recommend that you insure your package and retain your tracking information. In the event you do not receive a credit on your return, you must contact TEC with proof of delivery in order to receive credit. TEC cannot be responsible for issuing credit on return shipments without proof of delivery. If your return arrives to us damaged, you will have to file a claim with the shipping company to be reimbursed. We are not responsible for damages during shipment on returns for smaller packages. However, if we ship you the wrong item, we will arrange pickup and be responsible for any shipping damage that may occur.
