• PAYMENT TERMS
Orders require a 50% deposit when placed on orders over $2,000, with the balance to be paid 5 days prior to shipping. Orders under $2,000, require payment in full to be placed into production. Haute House Home Furnishings, Inc. (HH) accepts major credit cards, checks, wire transfers (add 1.5% for Wire Transfers) and cash for payments. The remaining 50% (plus any additional charges or shipping costs) must be paid 5 days prior to shipping.
• SERVICE CHARGES
Service charges on past due invoices, except validly disputed items, will be assessed as follows: 1-1/2 % per month or the maximum allowable by law on past due amounts open as of the last day of each calendar month until the past due amount is paid. It is advised that your company keep a current credit card on file with HH so past due amounts may be charged without incurring a service charge. HH will notify your company prior to making any charge.
• ORDER CONFIRMATION AND EXPECTED SHIP DATE (ESD)
Orders can be accepted in person, via email, HH Website, US Mail, other package delivery services or by fax. Orders cannot be accepted via telephone. The same applies to Revisions. HH requires that each Order or Revised Order be confirmed in writing via the above-mentioned communications. No verbal confirmations will be accepted. Once the Confirmation and Payment has cleared, HH will put the order into the Production Schedule. The Order Confirmation and payment must be received within 1 week of the date of the HH Estimate to hold the quoted ESD. If it is received after that time, HH cannot guarantee the quoted ESD. Orders will be held until HH receives an approved confirmation. It is essential that you review your Confirmation for accuracy and notify HH of any discrepancies within three (3) business days from receipt of the confirmation. HH will make every attempt to meet or exceed the ESD; however, lead times are meant as a guideline. HH is not liable for ship dates that exceed the quoted ESD. After the Confirmation has been received by HH, a final detailed Estimate/Acknowledgement will be sent to Customer for Final Approval. Contact HH if you have not received it or if you have questions or issues that need clarification. Customer’s Own Material (COM) must be received at HH 4 weeks after Order Confirmation date. COM delays will affect the ESD and HH will not be held responsible in such a case. COM MUST be labeled with the Customer’s Name and HH Estimate Number or it may be refused. Customer is required to provide a diagram of COM placement for each product on order. If damaged COM is received at HH, the Customer must arrange for a call tag for return shipping and/or replacement.
Please carefully review the Weights and Dimensions section below.
• RUSH CHARGE
A Rush Charge is an upcharge for completion of an Order sooner than the quoted ESD and/or a guaranteed Ship Date. An upcharge fee will be determined on the ESD requested and will apply to each item that is requested to be rushed. Rush Orders will only be accepted if there is room in our production schedule to accommodate it.
• REVISIONS AND CANCELLATIONS
Revisions to Orders will be accepted only before HH has placed the order into Production. That is, before the frame has been started or fabric has been ordered or cut. After that, additional charges will be incurred and the ESD may be affected. Cancellations are only accepted before Production has begun and must be approved with a signed verification from HH, this applies to online orders as well. It is the customer’s responsibility to contact HH in writing, or speak with a customer service representative, for a cancellation request. If production has not begun on an order, then the 50% deposit be refunded in the request of a Cancellation. No deposits will be refunded once Production starts. All Custom Orders and Rush orders are non-cancelable, and no deposit will be refunded once HH has received Order Confirmation, Payment and Production has begun.
For Online Orders, the customer has 7 days, from original order date, to request a cancellation. Online Orders will not be refunded after 7 days has passed and/or production has started.
