PURCHASE ORDER TERMS:
All terms and conditions of any purchase order, or other writing, issued by the buyer which are inconsistent with, in addition to, or different from the terms and conditions set forth here, are null and void.

All prices are FOB from Graber Manufacturing’s factory and are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated on quote. Prices are subject to change without notice. Shipments will be made at prices prevailing at the time of the shipment.
Graber Manufacturing will collect all taxes required by local state and federal law. In taxing jurisdictions where Graber Manufacturing is not required to collect tax, all taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. If buyer is tax exempt it is buyer’s responsibility to notify Graber in a timely manner and buyer must provide a valid tax exemption certificate prior to shipment. Graber is unable to remove sales tax from an invoice once an order ships and therefore will not issue a refund for exemptions sent in after the product has shipped.
Full payment is due at the time an order is placed unless buyer is a tax-supported government entity or a company with approved credit. If buyer is a tax-supported government entity or a company with approved credit net is due 30 days from date of invoice. Service charge of 1.5% per month on all invoices after 30 days. Graber Manufacturing accepts American Express, Master Card and VISA when order is placed (credit card fees of 3% may be accessed if used at other times). Graber Manufacturing reserves the right to change payment terms at any time if necessary.
Cancellation of orders will not be accepted without prior written authorization. Cancellations are subject to a 30% to 100% charge depending on costs incurred by Graber Manufacturing at time of cancellation. Special custom orders cannot be cancelled.
Returned product will not be accepted without prior written authorization. A return of standard product is subject to a 30% to 70% restocking charge. Returned product must be received in the same condition as originally shipped and must be shipped with freight charges prepaid by buyer. Special custom product cannot be returned.
