If you can’t find exactly what you need in our online catalog, we can help. Give us a call, or e-mail to provide us with a description of the product, a drawing, a photograph (.jpg) or the manufacturer's part number.

If you wish to send us a sample to evaluate, please address it to the attention of our Technical Support Department. If sent by US Mail, please send it to our PO Box in Pequannock NJ . Be sure that bulkier objects are properly packaged so that they break through their package in the mail. To avoid damaging Post Office equipment please mark package “Please Hand Cancel”.

The U.S. Post Office does not accept deliveries from any other common carrier such as UPS, Federal Express or DHL.

Samples sent to us by other shipping methods should be sent to our Paterson facility. 

We will not return your sample unless it is clearly noted on your packing slip as “Please Return”. Items of value should be sent with tracking information, whether by Certified Mail or Tracking number. Sometimes destructive testing is required to evaluate your sample. If your sample is “one-of-a-kind” or of significant, value, please note its value and “Do Not Destroy, Please Return” on your packing slip. If we must return your sample, we may request that you pay the shipping charges (including insurance) incurred.

Product Suitability

Many states and localities have codes and regulations governing sales, construction, installation, and/or use of products for certain purposes, which may vary from those in neighboring areas. While Industrial Hardware attempts to assure that its product information is up to date to comply with such codes, it cannot guarantee compliance or whether the website product data is outdated, and cannot be responsible for how the product is installed or used. Before purchase and use of a product, please review the product application and confirm that you are reviewing the most recent product data, and also confirm national and local codes and regulations, to be sure that the product, installation, and use will comply with them.

Hours of Operation

Our facility is open to accept phone calls, customer pick-ups and vendor deliveries from 7:30am-5:00pm EST (Eastern Standard Time) Monday-Friday. Our web site, e-mail and fax are off-hour options.

In order to provide you with the very best service, we suggest that you place your order before arriving for pick-up. This way we you can be assured that there will be no unnecessary delay when you arrive.

General and Expedited Shipping Information within the United States

 

We will always make every effort to ship same day, sales volume permitting at standard ground rates. If your order must be prioritized, please contact us as early as possible.

 

We will always attempt to ship from a facility closest to your location even if that warrants a shipment direct from the manufacturer rather than from our inventory. Therefore, we can provide prompt reliable service at the lowest possible cost.

 

We insure all shipments which are added to our shipping charge if applicable. If freight collect shipments are requested, the burden of tracking, insurance and claims is assumed by the buyer.

 

We give priority to priority class shipments which require overnight delivery. If we cannot ship same day when a priority shipment is specified, we will attempt to contact you by phone, so providing us with your cell # is recommended. We also recommend that you call us and direct our attention to your most urgent requirements.

 

If an overnight delivery is required, please be sure to specify Early AM, Standard Overnight or Next Business Day option.  Each of these options may vary by carrier.

Shipping Orders Outside the United States

We can ship our products throughout the world using air and ocean transportation services. We evaluate international orders based upon Homeland Security guidelines from all new customers to determine whether we can accept them. To facilitate each transaction, please complete and provide the following form along with your purchase order

Export Controls and Related Regulations

Customer represents and warrants that it is not on, or associated with any organization on the United States Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security's Denied Persons List or Unverified List; or the United States Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control lists, Specially Designated Nationals, Specially Designated Global Terrorists, Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers, Specially Designated Narcotic Traffickers-Kingpin, or Specially Designated Terrorists List; or the United States Department of State's Designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, Embargoed Countries list, or Debarred Persons List; or is subject to a denial order issued by the United States Department of Commerce. Customer shall comply with all relevant laws and regulations of governmental bodies or agencies, including but not limited to all applicable export control laws of the United States or other governing agencies and their successors.

Minimum Order Value

For domestic transactions, we have a $50.00 minimum order for anything that we offer from our large inventory. For export to Canada and Mexico, our minimum order is $250 and elsewhere $1000. If the item is out of stock, you will always be promptly notified and advised whether your order meets a factory direct shipment minimum for both amount and factory packaging. If we cannot satisfy your immediate requirements, we promptly refund your full purchase amount.

Types of Orders

All products that we offer fall in one of the following categories:

Standard products, which we maintain in inventory, do not require any deposit when ordered.

Special orders, which either exceeds our Standard Inventory levels or don’t generally inventory due to low demand. We reserve the option of requiring a deposit for these orders and these orders may be subject to a restocking charge.

Custom products, which are custom fabricated to meet your specific requirements, which includes cutting chain, wire rope, metal shapes or other items to a specific dimension. These items require a financial commitment before we can process your order. These orders are generally non-cancellable and non-returnable but we will make every to assist you in avoiding unnecessary costs.

Technical Drawings

We provide technical drawings when necessary to provide clarification of the product that we intend to provide. This is not a free service and unless otherwise noted, it is embedded into our cost of providing professional services. We do not provide drawings until our quoted price is accepted which is demonstrated by payment or a non-cancellable purchase order. If an order is placed and in good faith, we have provided proprietary detailed drawings, there will be a 50% order cancellation fee even if manufacturing has not begun. Otherwise the order remains non-cancellable but will make every reasonable effort to limit your cancellation-fee liability.

Our technical drawings are for our use only and may (intentionally) not contain all the necessary information to produce the product as intended for the customer’s application. It is not uncommon for us to develop but not submit supplemental proprietary documents which “complete” the drawing. Therefore, we do not authorize nor accept any liability whatsoever for products manufactured by others from our proprietary drawings.

Sales Tax

Customers are responsible for all applicable taxes. We charge sales tax only in New Jersey transactions. However, when items are shipped directly from the manufacturer in the same state as the shipment location, the question of the manufacturer’s liability to collect Sales tax comes into play. Whether or not you are located in New Jersey, if you wish to submit a Sales tax exemption certificate, you may submit it online, or by e-mail, fax, or mail us a signed copy. We have most New Jersey Sales tax certificates online and available for your immediate download. We also have a Multi-State Sales tax exemption document available for use.

We currently accept the following New Jersey Sales Tax exemptions online:

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) NJ ST-4

Construction Exemption NJ ST-13 (specific to each job)

Distributor NJ ST-3

Tax Exempt Organization NJ ST-5

Urban Enterprise Zone NJ UZ-5

Farm NJ ST-7

New Jersey State Government

 

The exemption process is as follows:

 

1)     Register your account online and check box adjacent to “If you want to register for tax exemption”.

2)     Check the tax exemption(s) where you intend to upload your certificate

3)     Be sure to depress Submit button at bottom of page.

4)     Certificate will be reviewed during normal business hours by our Accounts Receivable department. Please allow 1-2 days in advance of your purchase requirements for certificate approval.

5)     Upon receiving authorization, you will be notified by e-mail.

6)     1 month before your certificate expires, you will be notified of the pending expiration and may resubmit a new certificate.

7)     We retain all tax exemption documents for 5 years.

Returns, Exchanges and Cancellations

All returns, exchanges or cancellations require advance written authorization. Each is defined by the product type, the scope of the order or the manufacturer’s requirements. All returns MUST be shipped by a traceable method (i.e. Shipment Tracking) and a signed Proof of Delivery may be required before a credit will be issued. 

We treat every transaction with the highest degree of professionalism and expect that our customers will reciprocate in kind. We also understand that mistakes are unavoidable and therefore accept returns, exchanges and cancellations when possible.

Once we have purchased, received, inspected, inventoried, quoted, packaged and shipped product, we have performed all the duties that entitle us to our mark-up. If a product is to be returned, we have to perform all tasks a second time and therefore require a 20% restocking charge plus all shipping charges, which of course may only minimally cover our cost of one transaction, not both. Since we only service industrial accounts, any credit given for returned goods will only be applied towards future purchases. 

All returns must be returned undamaged in the same (undamaged) container in which they were shipped and are subject to inspection. Essentially they must be resalable without us adding effort.

Many of the products that we sell are lot-controlled. If the seal is broken, we cannot accept a return under any condition. If you purchase a serialized power tool, the serial number of the tool returned must match the one that is returned for credit.

Special order items are subject to the restocking conditions that the manufacturer has defined for us. This means that the restocking charge may be higher but never below the 20% stated above. There are occasions when the manufacturer refuses to accept a return and we are bound by their decision and therefore will not accept the return. 

Custom items are non-cancellable, non-returnable items but we will make every to assist you in avoiding unnecessary costs if a cancellation is necessary. Please review our technical drawing policy.

Additional Product Information

Call or e-mail us to let us know what other kinds of information you need. We will provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on request for all products classified as hazardous by OSHA.

Information about Previous Orders

We do not currently offer past order history online but it will be offered in the future. Our in-house accounting system tracks orders for the past 19 years. We expect to shortly integrate both systems.

Our Federal Tax ID, DUNS Number and Cage Code

Our federal tax ID number is 22-2401911. Our DUNS number is 05-492-3321. Our Cage Code is 1YKN4.

Open Account Information

For customers with established Industrial Hardware credit, payment terms are 1% net 30 days from the date of shipment, pick-up or notification that your order is ready for shipment. Anticipation or other cash discounts are not allowed.

We offer 1% 10 Day Net 30 credit terms to responsible companies that expect to make multiple purchases throughout the year. An open account requires a 50% credit card deposit against the first order which be at least $5000.

Your references will not be checked until an order is pending. You will still be required to sign our credit application to acknowledge agreement to our payment terms.

If customer fails to make payment within thirty (30) days, Industrial Hardware may defer shipments until such payment is made, or may, at its option, cancel all or any part of unshipped order. Industrial Hardware will not assume liability for the loss of pricing discounts or cost-savings lost due to actions taken as a result delinquent payments.
