Terms and Conditions of Sale
All illustrations and specifications found on the Humboldt website, catalog, brochures or any other printed matter are based on the latest information available at the time of the publication of that document. Due to our policy of continuous development of products and changes from vendors, we reserve the right to change, modify, improve, and delete models and components without notice.
Prices appearing on our website are U.S. List Prices exclusively. Orders for shipment outside the United States will not be accepted. Click Here for International sales and local dealers.
Our goal in shipping is to provide our customers with their purchases quickly and cost effectively. To this end we try to offer several choices in shipping so our customers can decide how fast they need items vs. the costs involved to ship them.
Items Shippable by UPS
For all UPS-shippable items, our website will calculate the shipping costs at the time of your order corresponding to the shipping method you choose. These shipping costs are based on the parameters you choose in the shipping calculator, i.e. ground, overnight, 2-day, etc. or if the items are being shipped to a residential address.
Please take note that some items, typically large items that don't weigh much or small items that weigh a lot, may cost more than we might think, so please take note.
Orders placed on Friday involving Overnight or Next Day shipping, will not be delivered on Saturdays. If you need Saturday delivery or concerned about expedited delivery, please call.
Items requiring shipment by truck cannot currently be calculated in real time on our website. If you order an item that is clearly marked as a Truck Item, you will be able to checkout, but we will not charge your credit card. Our sales department will determine the shipping costs and contact you via email. Once we have an agreement from you for the shipping costs, the order and credit card information will be processed. Truck shipping costs will normally be provided within a couple of hours.
Truck shipments to a building without a lift gate will incur a $150.00 Lift Gate Charge. This is a standard pass-along charge from all shipping companies.
We strive to ship all orders within 3-4 days of receiving them.
Tax is charged on all orders shipped to Illinois or North Carolina. Tax-exempt customers in these states need to have a tax exempt certificate on file with us to avoid being charged tax.
Out of Stock Items
While we strive to maintain an inventory second to none in our industry, there are times when something may be out of stock. In those cases, someone from Humboldt's sales department will contact you via email with the status of your order.
