Order Changes & Cancellations (Standard Lead Time Orders)
Gateway understands from time to time order changes or cancellations may be required; however, as all Gateway products are uniquely manufactured for each order, any changes or cancellations will assess
additional costs based on the following schedule.
• No fee for orders canceled within 1 business day.
• A fee of 10% of the net pretax total of the affected product if the order is canceled within 2 business days.
• A fee of 50% of the net pretax total of the affected product if the order is canceled from 3-5 business days
• A fee of 75% – 100% of the net pretax total of the affected product if the order is canceled after 5 business days
Important: Changing a product size to another size is considered a “cancellation” of one product for another and falls under the above program
Expedited / Late Change Orders
For orders requiring less than standard lead-time, Gateway will determine the feasibility of meeting required lead-time and will assess the following “rush fee” if the request can be accommodated. Add-on orders
to original PO are considered separate orders and also will incur the charges below if they require rush services as defined herein.
1 – 5 business day’s lead-time reduction – Minimum 10% of net
6 – 10 business day’s lead-time reduction – Minimum 20% of net
Orders are invoiced at the time of shipment. If a partial delivery of an order is made, Gateway shall submit a partial invoice to the purchaser for the product delivered. Payment for the partial invoice will be
subject to the aforementioned terms. Gateway will re-invoice the purchaser for shortages or replacements upon shipment of those items. If the buyer’s account has invoices unpaid after thirty (30) days, future
orders may be subject to terms of cash with the order. Gateway reserves the right to require down payments with orders due to, but not limited to, credit history, project size, custom product or finishes, etc. The
buyer will pay on demand all costs of collection, legal expenses, and attorney fees incurred or paid by Gateway in relation to past due invoices.
Gateway is registered with multiple states. In this case, we are required by law to collect and remit sales tax to the states in which we are registered. Customers who are tax exempt are required to remit the
relevant tax exempt forms to Gateway.
A signed purchase order is required for all orders. First-time orders require a 50% deposit and balance due at time of delivery unless waived by an officer of Gateway. With approved credit, all balances are due
within 30 days of invoice date unless otherwise approved by Gateway.
Customers seeking credit are required to complete a Gateway credit application. With approved credit, balances are due within 30 days of the invoice date. All accounts with balances beyond 30 days of invoice
date will be put on credit hold until the balance is paid in full.
All acknowledgments issued by Gateway state an estimated ship date. Gateway will use its best efforts to comply with such dates. If the product has been manufactured but has not shipped because the purchaser cannot take delivery, Gateway can store the products for up to five (5) business days at no charge. After five (5) business days the products are subject to a monthly storage charge of 3% of the product value. Partial months of storage are invoiced and are payable as whole months. If the customer moves the ship date into the next billing period, Gateway reserves the right to invoice the customer in the current billing period and storage charges will be enforced. Rescheduled shipments within 2 business days of the assigned date will require a 50% shipping upcharge plus any handling fees up to a maximum charge of $1000.
Short-Term Detention Charges
If a delivery has left our docks and is in transit and the customer cannot accept delivery there will be a charge of $500 per day.
All orders are shipped via one of the following methods: Customer pick-up or FOB Holyoke, MA. An appointment is required for customer pick-ups and must be arranged in advance. Shipments outside the contiguous 48 states will be as agreed to with the customer. Gateway will select the method and terms of shipment unless otherwise negotiated with the purchaser. If added costs are incurred, by reason of Gateway Office Furniture complying with a special shipment request by the customer, the added cost will be invoiced to the customer. Title and risk of loss shall pass to the purchaser at the time Gateway places goods in the possession of a common carrier or at the time of tender of delivery to the customer in the case of delivery by a Gateway vehicle. Partial shipments may be necessary and are at the discretion of Gateway. Gateway will attempt to honor timed delivery requests, but we will not be held responsible for delays with timed deliveries unless the shipment has been guaranteed with the carrier in writing.
Gateway is not responsible for damage to goods, which occur in transit. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to examine goods upon receipt and to file any claims with the carrier. Any claims against Gateway for
apparent defects, errors, or shortages must be made by the purchaser in writing within 2 business days after any delivery. Failure by the purchaser to make any claim against Gateway within 2 business days shall
constitute acceptance of the goods and waiver of any apparent defects, errors or shortages.
Buyer may delay payment of up to 10% of the invoice, without penalty, until all Punch List items are corrected. However, it is expressly understood that the remaining 90% of the invoice is due and payable,
under the credit terms extended by Gateway, regardless of the presence or extent of Punch List items.
Buyer agrees to pay a processing fee of $35 for checks returned due to insufficient funds, and further agrees that the entire Buyer’s account balance is immediately due and payable upon notification from
Gateway that the check was returned for non-payment.
Acts Beyond Reasonable Control
Gateway shall not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from any delay or failure in shipment, or other failure to perform all or part of its obligations, where such delay, failure, loss or damage is the
proximate result of any act of any government authority or political subdivision thereof, revolution, riot, civil disorder or obtaining materials facilities, fire, flood, weather, act of God, or any cause not within
the reasonable control of Gateway.
