Shipping & Returns
Many of the products available on this website are delivered via a freight carrier. These type of deliveries require a delivery appointment to assist with the unloading of goods, along with inspecting and signing for the delivery. When the shipment arrives near your location, you will be contacted by the carrier to arrange a delivery appointment. While the carrier may allow some flexibility in appointment times, lengthy delays in appointments may result in storage fees. Tortuga Outdoor is not responsible for such fees.
The carrier will deliver as close to your property line (curbside) as is accessible to the vehicle. Many deliveries will include liftgate services to assist with offloading the pallet from the truck. The driver is under no obligation to assist with the unloading of the shipment; therefore, it is recommended that your have one or more assistants to help unload the delivery. While the total weight of such products may be very heavy, the product is divided into boxes that are more manageable by 1-2 people. In a case of a delivery that does not include liftgate service, you will be given a reasonable amount of time to complete the offloading of the shipment, typically 15-30 minutes.
Merchandise is shipped F.O.B. shipping point. It is very important that you thoroughly inspect the merchandise for any damages that may have occurred during transport. ANY damages that are discovered must be notated on the bill of lading/delivery receipt that you sign. Have the driver initial any damage report and be sure to obtain a copy of this delivery document. Failure to document any transportation-related damage may result in delays or even the inability for us to send you replacement parts. Returned products are subject to return shipping fees, restocking fees and/or original shipping fees.
No additional charges should be presented to you at the time of delivery. However, you may request additional services of the carrier (two-man delivery, inside delivery, lift gate or address change) once the carrier contacts you. These services may involve additional charges and are not the responsibility of Tortuga Outdoor.
