Price Quotations: All written price quotations will be valid for 30 days, unless stated otherwise on the quotation or unless the supplier changes our cost without prior notice. Freight charges listed on the quotations are to be considered estimates as they may change at shipping time, depending on how the product is packaged.

Freight: Carrier selection is at MedEquip Depot's discretion unless you specifically request a carrier of your choice. All shipments are Prepaid and Add unless stated otherwise on our website or in the quotation. We do not ship on third party accounts.

Charges are determined by the carrier's tariff. Special shipping requirements such as expedited shipping or HAZMAT handling are subject to a service charge. You will be notified if product requires HAZMAT handling prior to shipping and a HAZMAT handling fee may be assessed. You acknowledge that this information may not be available to MedEquip Depot before the package arrives from  the manufacturer.

Shipping Delays: MedEquip Depot is not liable for any shipping delays outside of our control and we will do everything possible to ensure the speediest deliveries.

Freight Claims: Carefully inspect all shipments before accepting delivery from carrier.  Please note any specific damage on the freight bill so a claim can be made with the freight carrier. You may refuse any obviously damaged merchandise. Report all freight related claims to shipping@medequipdepot.com within 1 business day.

Returns: Our return policy is the same as the manufacturers we buy from. Some manufacturers permit returns with or without a restocking charge. Others do no accept returns either because it is a custom product or because it is a surgical product that may have been exposed to bloodborne contamination. This return policy is standard in the medical industry.

For products that can be returned, you must obtain a written authorization from us to return the item. Returned items must have an assigned RMA# written on the outside of the box. Items must be returned in the original box with the original packaging. They must be received in new / unopened / re-sellable condition. Return freight must be pre-paid and a restocking fee of up to 25% may be assessed. Custom manufactured products that are made to order with your specified size, wood or laminate color, material or upholstery pattern/ color are non-returnable. To request an RGA #, click here.

While we understand there are sometimes delays with new facility opening dates, once a custom product has gone into production at the factory, we won't be able to cancel it. Custom orders are non-refundable.

Storage and handling charges will be assessed when the customer or their agent cannot or will not accept delivery of an order as scheduled to the original agreed upon ship-to address. Storage, handling, re-consignment fees (to a different address) and related charges will be invoiced to the customer's account. 

Storage costs begin to accrue on the date the product is transferred to storage. These costs will typically begin within a couple of days after the product arrives at the local truck terminal. You agree to be billed for these charges in the event they are necessary.

Packaging: All of our products are sold in original packaging, and packed carefully to avoid damage in shipping. All furniture is automatically boxed with the exception of some of our patient room furniture. Some of these pieces are shipped blanket wrapped to certain areas unless otherwise specified by the customer. 

Warranty:  Warranty depends upon the manufacturer of the product. Warranty on some products is included with the description. Please contact us regarding specific warranty information.

Fabrics: Since fabrics are not usually guaranteed to us by the manufacturer, MedEquip Depot cannot warranty the wearing, quality, durability, color fastness, etc. of coverings, padding or fabrics. Additionally, dyes are not guaranteed to match if orders are placed at different times.
