5.8 All glass products are handmade and there may be slight variations in sizes and colouring's.
5.9 Bake on labels: Any bake on labels are prone to small imperfections and bubbling, this is due to the nature of how they are applied. This is not a product defect and you should expect some imperfections on any labels or colour wrap design products.
5.10 Due to all products being handmade there will always be some degree of small imperfections in the glass. Small bubbles, scratches and pimples are all completely normal and do not indicate a defective product.
5.11 Stems (glass) - It is the sole responsibility of the customer to measure, choose and order the correct stem length. All stem measurements on product pages are approximate and measurements should be made by the customer before ordering replacement stems. Please use our stem measuring guide on our blog, which can be found here.
5.12 Rubber grommet pipes: All rubber grommet products are a low value item and expectations of such products should match the value of the product. All of our products in this range are checked for air tightness to a satisfactory level before being dispatched from us. A few points to remember before purchasing a rubber grommet product from us, the hole in the glass under the grommet is never perfectly round, this is how they are made by hand. It is also very unlikely that they will ever be 100% air tight, they do not need to be and you may be over packing the product or the hole in the brass bowl may be too small.
5.13 We rely on our suppliers to provide specifications and in the event they do not we are only able to supply approximate measurements. We do not manufacture anything ourselves. The majority of the products on our website are hand made and they will ALL have differences to the measurements provided. Beefy's will not be held responsible for any inconsistency in manufacturers stated measurements.
6 Delivery and return of Goods
6.1 Any automated confirmation of a successful order placement and/or receipt and/or our processing of a payment for an order through the Site does not constitute acceptance of an order by us. If we decline your order after a payment for the order has been received/processed we will contact you with the details and refund the payment in full.
6.2 The Products are our absolute property at law and in equity until you have paid the full price. Until we receive full payment, if you hold a Product, you will hold the Product only as a bailee.
6.3 You agree to take on the risk for the Products, such as loss or damage, when the Products reach the delivery address.
6.4 If your order is returned to us due to circumstances outside of our control and we receive no communication from the customer. The products will become the property of Beefy's after 60 days.
6.5 If we receive no notification from you within 48 hours of the delivery date, you agree that the Products will be deemed delivered without defect.
6.6 After taking delivery of the Products, you agree to examine the Products and notify us if there are any missing or damaged Products within 48 hours of the delivery date. We will need either physical or photographic evidence of the ‘unused’ product in this time frame. Video proof will be needed if you are claiming for a "leaking" product.
6.7 If we receive no notification from you within 48 hours of the delivery date, you agree that the Products will be deemed delivered without defect.
6.8 We are no longer accepting returns, this is due to the fact many returns had been clearly used before returning the products. Please make sure you order the correct product, including length and size. If you have any questions please discuss them with us prior to ordering. We do not offer returns under any circumstances.
6.9 You are 100% responsibility for supplying the correct delivery address and any return shipping costs in either direction will be the customers responsibility.
6.10 All sales are final.
6.11 If you would like to claim for a faulty product, it must be returned in an unused state, this includes coming in to contact with residue of any substance. If you use the product you have agreed that it is acceptable quality and there will be no returns on such products.
6.12 If your payment is in any way not received and you accept delivery of the order, you are still required to pay the invoice total. If you refuse to pay, a credit collection agency will be employed to retrieve the funds. This will effect your credit rating.
6.13 Beefy's Bongs 100% owns all products until we have received your payment in full. No matter the location of said products.
6.14 By accepting a delivery from us, you are committing to pay any outstanding amount left on the invoice. Failing to do so will result in a collection service being hired to recover the funds.
6.15 Any store credits issued in good faith or any other gesture, cannot be used in conjunction with any coupon codes. They also cannot be used for the shipping/freight portion of any orders. Store credits can only be used for products.
6.16 If you claim there is a missing product. We will always do our best to make sure there are no missing products from any order and always take missing product claims seriously. Although if inventory levels match our system and the physical items and Beefy's also have the two signatures of the employees whom checked and or packed your order along with a vivid recollection of packing the orders. We will not be sending a replacement out as we believe our steps to prevent missing items are more than adequate.
6.17 Cancellation of an order. There are a couple of scenarios for this question.
We have not packed your order, it is fine we can simply cancel your order.
If your order has been packed/prepared, we can cancel your order although there will be $10 removed from your refund to cover staff costs of packing and unpacking the order. This excludes some satchels, where we use prepaid satchels, in this case we will remove the cost of the satchel and the $10 unpacking fee from your refund.
If your order has already been shipped we are unable to stop the delivery process, you may refuse the delivery and the order will be returned to us. Please be aware the postage in both directions will be removed from the refund along with the $10 administration fee.
If the claim is less than $10 "before or after the administration fee has been applied" customers are not eligible for a refund.
(This is for standard refunds only, underage orders and refusing to provide proof of age fall under item 19.9 of the Terms and Conditions.)
6.18 If you provide incorrect bank details for a refund, you bear all responsibility of any lost funds or any fees that may be incurred.
6.19 If there is something missing or incorrectly sent, Beefy's have the right to refund or provide a store credit instead of reshipping the item. It is at our sole discretion. This will generally be the case for when the item is inexpensive and shipping costs more than the product is worth.
6.20 If your parcel is lost or delayed, Beefy's will lodge an enquiry with the corresponding courier service. Once the courier service has confirmed the parcel cannot be found, a replacement will then be sent out, this will only occur once we have written confirmation from the courier. This will only occur once the proper procedure has been followed, the time it takes for the courier to deem a parcel lost is out of our control. If you are requested by the courier to provide any details you must comply.
6.21 If we ship a replacement order and you receive the replacement along with the original order, you must refuse delivery or return the second parcel at your own expense. Failing to do so will result in a new invoice being issued that you will be responsible for paying, failing to do so will have a collection agency employed to recover the funds. Payment terms are strictly 7 days.
6.22 If we have shipped a replacement order and you have received compensation from the courier for the original lost parcel, you will be responsible for repaying for the second delivery. You will be invoiced and responsible for payment of the invoice, failing to do so will have a collection agency employed to recover the funds. Payment terms are strictly 7 days.
6.23 Beefy's cannot be held liable for any late deliveries, this includes express deliveries, this is outside of our control.
6.24 It is the responsibility of the customer to collect or arrange re-delivery of a parcel if they are not home to accept the delivery. Beefy's is under no obligation to organise re-delivery or collection of the parcel.
6.25 It is the responsibility of the customer to follow any procedures of the courier to organise collection or re-delivery of parcels. This includes although not limited to; filling out any forms required, contacting the courier by telephone or email.
6.26 If you request a re-delivery or a re-direct to a different address that is not your original address you are responsible for any and all fees associated with such services. If Beefy's is billed for this service we will issue an invoice that the customer is under obligation to pay. Original shipping fees do not cover any other services besides the original delivery.
6.27 If you request a re-direct to an address that is not the original address on the order, Beefy's is no longer involved in the delivery process. All communication involving the delivery to a separate address is outside of our control and the customer has now entered in to their own agreement with the courier/freight company.
6.28 Postage charges may include packaging and handling fees and may not reflect the charge that may be shown on the parcel at the time of shipping.
