  EXCLUSIONS TO COVERED FREIGHT COSTS
 
CHURCHES, SCHOOLS, MILITARY FACILITIES, MALL OR SHOPPING CENTERS, MINI STORAGE LOCATIONS, UPPER FLOOR OR ELEVATOR DELIVERIES - all are classified by freight companies as a "Limited Access Delivery".  Free Freight will not apply to these delivery locations.

There are addresses  (typically addresses "out in the middle of nowhere", or in major cities such as NYC, or on islands, or on the top of mountains)  that are billed by our shippers at a much higher rate. If you live on a gravel drive, a narrow street or dead end, or any location where an 18 wheeler could not easily turn around, you fall into the exclusion area.   These will not totally be covered by free shipping but a credit toward the final shipping bill will be given.  You will be notified if this concerns your shipment.  You will be responsible for any extra shipping charges above a certain level for each kiln. If you think that your shipment will fall within the exclusion list, PLEASE E-MAIL US TO ALERT US.
   
  Damaged Items: If your order was damaged by UPS or Common Carrier, please call immediately.  Do not continue to unpack the items if you notice damage.  Retain all items and packaging material until your claim is settled.
  ALWAYS INSPECT YOUR SHIPMENT BEFORE SIGNING FOR IT!!!

Mud In Mind and it's suppliers take great care to pack your merchandise well so it will arrive in good condition. We even receive a signed bill of lading from the freight company that they accepted your order from us in good condition. The next step is up to you. It is your responsibility to inspect the order to be sure it is in sound condition upon receipt.


IMPORTANT NOTE:  Once you sign for receipt of a shipment:

MudInMind.com can no longer be held responsible, monetarily or otherwise, for any damages which may occur or become apparent afterwards; nor can we be held responsible for any additional shipping or repair charges which may be required to rectify the situation.  If you do find concealed damage after signing for receipt of a shipment, you should immediately begin a 'concealed damage' claim with the shipping company.

Below are listed several shipping and receiving standards for you to use to insure proper service.

1. You should thoroughly inspect your shipment upon arrival. Verify the number of cartons and inspect them for damage. If any shortage or damage is evident, notify the freight company at once, and request that they make note of it on the bill of lading before the driver leaves. The freight company will not entertain any claim for loss or damage unless they first inspect the shipment. This notice of damage or loss, together with a copy of your invoice, the original bill of lading, and your paid freight bill will properly support your claim. By signing the freight bill, you are accepting the shipment and releasing the trucking company from further obligation. Failure to note damage or shortage on freight bills may forfeit your claim with the trucking company.

2. If the shipment has the appearance that the contents inside may be damaged please insist that the package be opened in the presence of the driver. Any concealed damage should be noted immediately.

3. Public Carrier Trucks are responsible for "tailgate deliveries" meaning that the driver is obligated only to bring the shipment to the end of the truck. At this point it is the responsibility of the consignee to unload it. If you require assistance with unloading please make prior arrangements. Lift gate, hand unload, inside delivery and residential delivery are often available for an additional price. Tell us your special requirements at the time you place your order and we will either forward your requests to the freight company or provide you with their contact information so that you can make these arrangements to your satisfaction. We recommend you make the contact so that you are certain your requests have been granted.

4. Freight collect payments are to be made at the time of delivery unless you have an established account with the carrier. Any overage on freight prepaid shipments are the customers responsibility and will be billed accordingly.
