We generally ships via UPS Ground whenever possible. Freight shipping is through Freight Quote and their affiliated partners. When your parts/kit ship you will be notified via email of the tracking or PRO number accordingly so you may coordinate your deliveries.
Missing or damaged parts:
Customers have 7 days to report missing or damaged parts to us.
How Shipping Charges are figured:
Unless noted that shipping is included the shipping charges are calculated by the shipping company and charged directly to you. We then add a packaging/crating fee for materials and time for packing your parts. These fees can vary from $50 – $75 for crated items, depending on materials and complexity.
Shipping Inspection/Checking Parts:
Inspect your shipment BEFORE you sign for it!
Look for any breaks in the outside covering (whether it be cardboard, shrink wrap, or a crate) and if you find ANYTHING then you need to sign the bill of lading as damaged. NO DETAILS ARE NEEDED, just the word “DAMAGED” written clearly and sign your name. If you do not mark it damaged then the company WILL NOT COVER IT and YOU will be liable for replacing the items and paying the shipping again. They do not make exceptions! You need to take PHOTOS! Detailed photos of the box/crate/pallet and the items showing damages. Contact us immediately.
Please remember to check all of your parts immediately after receiving them and keep all packaging until you are able to verify all of the parts arrived undamaged.
We generally ship with two companies for domestic shipping: Freight Quote and UPS. Instructions for initiating damage claims depends on the carrier. We insure each shipment based on replacement costs. Claims on international shipments must be filed with the international freight forwarder used for that shipment.
We are not responsible for damage to parts due to freight mishandling. It is the customer’s responsibility to document any and all freight damage. You will need to contact the carrier to initiate the claim. As stated before we insure the shipment for full value replacement. Depending on the carrier, and their liability limits, there may be an insurance deductible on reimbursement. YOU are named as the payee in the event of a damaged shipment and you are responsible for making the claim to the insurance company, following up with photos and copies of invoices. We are here to help in any way we can, so if you need anything please do not hesitate to contact us.
If any freight damage occurs, document the damage carefully with photographs and be sure to note DAMAGED on the bill of lading and point it out to the delivery driver. Once the freight claim is filed with the freight company, we will work with you and the freight company to assign values to the damaged individual parts and arrange to get you replacement parts.
Credit Card/PayPal Policy:
As seen from our price point, we have a very low profit margin and strive to keep it that way. Using credit cards is the way business transactions happen all the time, however the fees they charge eat away at that meager profit margin of ours. We want you to be able to shop with us, and we will gladly take your credit card as payment. However in order to keep our profit margins low we charge a 3% convenience fee for credit card or PayPal transactions.
General Orders Cancellation/Change Policy/Fee: Orders must be cancelled or changed within 24 hours of placing the order. We cannot guarantee that the order has not already shipped by that time, but will make an effort to change the order, if possible. For general part orders exceeding $1,000, a 10% cancellation fee applies to cancellations received more than 24 hours after initial order has been made. For cancellations of orders of any value that have already been packed by our warehouse, handling charges will be applied. Order cancellations may also result in “single shipment” or other special handling fees from shipping companies as a result of the change in the warehouse shipping/freight pickup schedule caused by the order cancellation. All such fees will be charged to the cancelled order.
No part returns are accepted by FlyCorvair.com after 30 days from date of purchase.
Special Order items, including but not limited to, propellers and custom items are not eligible for return. All part returns must be authorized in writing from FlyCorvair.com before they are returned for repair, replacement, or exchange. This can best be accomplished by sending e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org with an explanation of the issue and detailed images where appropriate. If an issue is found we will issue a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number and instructions for returning the part or assembly for repair, replacement, exchange, or refund. Any refund is subject to a restocking charge depending on the condition of the returned part. Any part returned without an RMA will be immediately returned at the owner’s expense. As with standard practice in all industries, regardless of the corrective action on any (RMA) returned part, shipping expenses to and from the factory are the customer’s responsibility. FlyCorvair.com reserves the right to determine how a warranty repair will be made in lieu of part replacement. RMA numbers can be obtained by contacting us by e-mailing the at: email@example.com. Part Exchanges are subject to a minimum handling and restocking fee of 20% subject to the condition of the returned parts.
