Terms and Conditions

When you compare our Terms and Conditions to those on other websites you will find them to be pretty elementary. They are that way for a reason. The key benefit of Rapid Materials is an efficient order entry system. As an extension of that concept the Terms and Conditions of Sale are equally efficient.

The specifics are outlined below:

  1. We will do everything within our control to fulfill your order, exactly as you outline. That includes; the correct quantity and excellent quality. If we ship your order incorrectly, let us know as soon as possible what is wrong and we will correct our error promptly at no cost to you.
  2. You are responsible for placing an accurate order. Unless we supply the order incorrectly, we will charge a 25% restocking fee on any returns. See our “Policies” page for complete information.
  3. What happens if something arrives damaged?
    • Take digital photographs of the damage immediately. If damage to the package is obvious, do not sign for the shipment unless the carrier notes the damage. At your option, you may elect to refuse the shipment.
    • Notify us immediately. Rapid Materials will supply the appropriate information so that you will be able to file a claim with the carrier, but the responsibility for the claim filing is yours.
    1. Any damages must be reported prior to the use of the product. Rapid Materials will not accept returns for any used, modified or un-packaged product.
    2. If we determine that your order cannot be shipped exactly as placed, Rapid Materials will advise you as soon as we determine there is a problem and work with you to find a suitable alternative. If we cannot find what you need, we will refund your money in full.
    3. Note that in some cases orders may ship from multiple locations. If this occurs, you will receive tracking information for all packages.
    4. If you pay by Credit Card, the Terms and Conditions of your Credit Card will be in force.
    5. You are responsible for determining the adequacy of the application of the Rapid Materials products. You should refer to the technical information for each product. Rapid Materials assumes no responsibility or liability for the use and/or application of any product purchased from our company.
    6. Please note that color(s) / finish(es) are not guaranteed to match if multiple orders are placed.
    7. Cancellation of orders. If you have made an error or wish to cancel your order, notify us as soon as possible. If the order has already been shipped, the order cannot be cancelled and will have to be processed as a return per our Return Policy.
    8. Please note that Rapid Materials, Inc. may be required to contact you AFTER your order is placed to collect Sales Tax if required by law.
    9. Note that, while Rapid Materials offers expedited shipping (next day, 2-day, etc), your order may not ship the day you place the order. We generally require up to 2 business days to process your order. If  your order is time critical, please contact us prior to placing your order; in many cases we may be able to accommodate your delivery schedule. In some case we may not be able to. Rapid Materials can make no guarantee as to the actual delivery date and delivery time; the shipper has control over your order once it has left our dock.
