Terms and Conditions for The Better Source
General: We ship UPS, FedEx Ground, FedEx Air and US Postal Service daily. We normally ship your order within 1-5 days. Special Order items normally ship within a week. Expedited orders ship OUT as requested (Red=1 day, Blue=2 day etc) This DOES NOT include the time it takes us to get your parts however. Be advised: large items such as ATV fenders, Cab assemblies etc may incur additional shipping charges. We will contact you before shipping if this is the case.
International Orders: We DO ship internationally and to APO addresses when allowed by our suppliers, International orders require credit card verification by fax or email, or pay by Wire Transfer. Shipping prices for international customers are not calculated until the time of shipment. We will estimate freight for you upon request, but it is subject to change once all items are packed. Most international orders ship US Postal Service Global Express Mail.
Oversize Items: ATV Fenders, Snowmobile belly pans, snowmobile and personal watercraft hoods, and a few other items are OVERSIZE freight and must be shipped via truck freight. These items will incur an additional charge of as much as $105 above the freight shown on your invoice. If you are ordering any of the above items we suggest you contact us by phone or email to see if they are oversize. We reserve the right to ship this item and charge additional freight without notice; or cancel the order at our discretion.
'Special Order' Delivery Times: Since we cannot possibly stock all the items that our customers desire we must 'special order' most items from our suppliers. These items normally arrive at our dealership within 1-3 business days.
Note: Orders placed after 11 AM are not shipped by our suppliers until the following day. Orders are processed by our store Monday through Friday only. Orders placed after Noon on Friday, on Saturday, Sunday or Holidays are processed the following business day.
Because most of the items we offer are 'special order' items, we charge customer's credit card when a order is placed. We must then order the products we do not have in stock from the manufacturer or supplier. Because most of our suppliers charge a 20% restock fee on cancelled orders, or returns; we must pass that charge on to you if you cancel your order after placing it with us. WE CHARGE 20% RESTOCK FEE on ALL cancelled orders. There is a minimum $5.00 restock fee on on any order that has been placed then cancelled. This restock fee may sometimes be waived if you re-order similarly priced items. If you are not sure what you need please contact our customer service department at 773.207.3730.
Return Authorization can be requested ONLINE through the Customer Service Link. All returns must be accompanied by a Return Authorization Number (RA#) provided by our office and a copy of the invoice.
