Orders

All orders are fulfilled in the United States and are subject to quantities of stock on hand. At its discretion, and consistent with its compliance obligations and these terms and conditions, Industrial Part Sphere may source articles from outside the United States on an as-needed basis.  All Orders are non-cancelable and non-returnable unless the customer is issued a return material authorization (“RMA”) in writing by Industrial Part Sphere. Articles may not be returned without an RMA issued by Industrial Part Sphere. Customers may not cancel or reschedule orders without the written consent of Industrial Part Sphere.

Canceled Orders

Customers will be subject to a cancellation fee for all canceled orders, which may be waived at Industrial Part Sphere’ discretion. This fee is meant to reflect and protect Industrial Part Sphere’ reasonably expected damages and profits. Restocking fees will be determined at Industrial Part Sphere’ discretion and shall be a minimum of 25% of the total cost of the order unless otherwise determined by Industrial Part Sphere. Restocking fees may exceed 25% of the total cost of the order depending on costs incurred by Industrial Part Sphere. Confirmed orders canceled as a result of customer identifying and contacting Industrial Part Sphere’ suppliers will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee. Customers agree that the cancellation fees herein described are a reasonable estimation of Industrial Part Sphere’ anticipated profits and other costs and does not constitute a penalty. 

At its discretion, Industrial Part Sphere may require payment of a deposit prior to shipment of articles. In the event of order cancellation, Industrial Part Sphere will deduct the cancellation fee—as determined in accordance with this section—from the deposit, and refund the remainder of the deposit, if any, to the customer.

Prices

Quoted prices remain valid for 48 hours from the time the quote is issued, unless otherwise stated in writing. Should prices to Industrial Part Sphere increase, or cost increases due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control, Industrial Part Sphere may increase prices to cover additional costs of orders or cancel orders at its discretion. Industrial Part Sphere will notify customers of any such price increases and customers will have 48 hours to accept revised price of articles.  Failure by customers to respond to price increases within 48 hours will be deemed an order cancellation. Orders canceled or deemed canceled as a result of price increases will be issued a full refund within 10 business days of provision by the customer to Industrial Part Sphere of necessary banking information to issue a refund. 

Prices are solely for articles themselves and do not comprise taxes, impositions, or any other charges, fees, shipping costs or duties imposed by any intermediary or government authority, which shall be the responsibility of the customer.

Lead Times

Quoted lead times are based on information provided to Industrial Part Sphere by its supplier sources. These lead times are provided only as an estimate. Though Industrial Part Sphere will make every effort to provide articles within the quoted lead time, lead times are subject to change without notice. All lead times shall be subject to the LIMITATION OF LIABILITY provisions of these terms and conditions.

Terms of Payment

Payment of the total invoice amount, without offset or deduction, is due within 30 days of the invoice date. Industrial Part Sphere reserves the right to charge interest on any past-due invoices from the payment due date to the date of payment (at 1% per month), in addition to reasonable attorney fees and collection costs. Industrial Part Sphere may change the terms of the customer’s credit at any time. In the event of past-due invoices, Industrial Part Sphere may, at its discretion, apply payments to the oldest past-due accounts or orders first.

Industrial Part Sphere may, at its discretion, require pre-payment to secure performance of orders. In the event Industrial Part Sphere cannot satisfy orders for which pre-payment was made in accordance with these terms and conditions, the customer will be entitled to a full refund of all prepaid funds.

Delivery and Title

Risk of Loss shall pass to the customer once the article is delivered to the carrier who will be responsible for carriage from Industrial Part Sphere to the customer, or when the article is claimed by the customer in the event the article is picked up at Industrial Part Sphere by the customer or the customer’s representative. Carrier and method of payment to carrier shall be determined by Industrial Part Sphere and the customer during negotiation of order. 

Delivery dates are only estimates. Industrial Part Sphere is not liable for delays in delivery resulting from export compliance processes, quality protocols, shipping delays or interruptions, or circumstances beyond Industrial Part Sphere’ control. Industrial Part Sphere reserves the right to make partial shipments in fulfilment of an order, and the customer will accept delivery and pay for the articles delivered on a pro rata basis in accordance with the order as well as these terms and conditions. Industrial Part Sphere is entitled to complete shipment of a full order, regardless of any delays in whole or in part of the order. A delayed delivery of any part of an order does not entitle the customer to cancel or delay other deliveries arising out of the same order unless authorized by Industrial Part Sphere in writing. 

In the event that an article is lost, stolen, or destroyed before Risk of Loss has passed, the customer must notify Industrial Part Sphere, in writing, within five days of the loss or else waive any right to compensation and remain responsible for the purchase price.  In the event that the customer provides proper notice of loss, Industrial Part Sphere shall (1) provide to the customer a replacement article meeting the same standards as the original article (excluding contract terms related to expected arrival), or (2) make a prompt refund to the customer of the purchase price with respect to the lost or stolen article.  The choice of remedy will be at Industrial Part Sphere’ discretion; if Industrial Part Sphere notifies the customer that Industrial Part Sphere will provide the customer with a replacement article, the customer shall have 30 days from the date on which notification is sent to place a purchase order for the replacement article or else this right to a remedy will be waived. In all events, the customer is expected to protect its articles from loss and if the customer fails to protect articles from loss then the customer does so at its own peril.

Inspection, Acceptance, and Return of Articles

The customer shall have seven calendar days after delivery in which to inspect the article.  The customer must notify ASAP Industrial of any discrepancies found during this inspection period.  In the event that the customer discovers discrepancies during inspection, they must notify Industrial Part Sphere in writing during the inspection period. After the seventh day, the customer is determined to have accepted the articles and may not revoke acceptance.

In the event that a discrepancy is identified in writing to Industrial Part Sphere, Industrial Part Sphere will review the discrepancy and may issue a return material authorization (“RMA”). The customer cannot return articles without a RMA number issued by Industrial Part Sphere. RMAs are only issued in cases in which articles do not meet the condition identified in the documentation. Under no circumstances will an RMA be issued for reasons related to price of articles or due to customer error in ordering articles.

RMAs shall remain valid only for the time specified on the RMA—in no case to exceed 30 days—and articles must be returned to Industrial Part Sphere within the specified time. After the specified time period the RMA will expire and returns will not be accepted. Articles will remain the property of the customer if not received in the time specified in the RMA or if articles are not in the same condition as sold by Industrial Part Sphere.

In response to a written notification of discrepancy under the inspection provisions of these terms and conditions, Industrial Part Sphere may either reject the claim if the claim is not authorized under the inspection provisions of these terms and conditions, or issue a RMA and accept the return of the article (in such an event, cost of return shipping shall be borne by Customer). For low-cost articles, Industrial Part Sphere may, at its discretion, issue a material mutilation authorization (“MMA”). Customers that are issued an MMA must provide a written certification certifying mutilation or destruction of discrepant articles to Industrial Part Sphere within 30 days of issuance.

Returned articles must be in the original shipping packaging or equivalent thereof and must be returned in the original manufacturer’s packaging if shipped in the same. Returned articles must also be accompanied by all provided documentation, including but not limited to manufacturers Certificates of Conformity (“C of C”), FAA Form 8130-3 or equivalent, and all traceability documentation. Shipping charges and fees, including insurance as specified in the RMA will be paid by the customer. The customer bears Risk of Loss of the article until received by ASAP Industrial. Returned articles must be shipped with signature upon delivery. In the event returned articles are shipped without signature upon delivery, Industrial Part Sphere reserves the right to cancel the RMA. Industrial Part Sphere bears no responsibility for returned articles delivered to Industrial Part Sphere without signature of receipt. Industrial Part Sphere claims no responsibility for returned articles shipped without a valid RMA. 

The customer must pay any restocking charges. Articles without a valid RMA will be returned to the customer at customer’s expense. In the event articles cannot be returned to the customer, the customer will have 90 days to arrange for recovery of the articles. If the customer does not arrange for recovery of the articles within 90 days, the articles will be deemed to be forfeited and returned to Industrial Part Sphere stock and the customer will not be entitled to a refund.

Restocking Fees

Customers will be subject to a restocking fee for any returned articles. The restocking fee is inclusive of costs incurred by Industrial Part Sphere, including but not limited to time, resource and human capital allocation, and use. Restocking fees will be determined at Industrial Part Sphere’ discretion and shall be a minimum of 25% of the total cost of the order unless otherwise determined by ASAP Industrial. Restocking fees may exceed 25% of the total cost of the order depending upon costs incurred by Industrial Part Sphere. Returns resulting from failure to provide accurate end user information or providing misleading information on orders for articles destined outside of the United States will result in a restocking fee of 50% of the total cost of the order. Articles returned as a result of the customer identifying and contacting Industrial Part Sphere’ suppliers will be subject to a 100% restocking fee. 

Industrial Part Sphere may deduct the restocking fee as determined by this section from any deposit or other monies paid to Industrial Part Sphere by the customer.

Article Information

Article information, including information related to an article’s specifications, export/import control classifications, hazardous materials and dangerous goods information, uses, or conformance with legal or other requirements, is obtained by Industrial Part Sphere from its suppliers or other sources. Industrial Part Sphere provides such information on an "AS IS" basis. All information is subject to change without notice and Industrial Part Sphere is not responsible for errors or omissions in article information.

Substitution, Condition, and PMA

Although Industrial Part Sphere will make every effort to provide articles in accordance with the original order, Industrial Part Sphere reserves the right to make substitutions, provided the substitute articles have the same form, fit, and function as the articles replaced. In the event of a substitute article, Industrial Part Sphere will notify the customer of the substitution, and the customer will have the option to accept the substitute article or cancel that part of the order pertaining only to the article to be substituted.  Orders canceled due to substitute articles will be entitled to a full refund only for those articles substituted. Accepted substitute articles will be shipped upon receipt of written confirmation of acceptance of the substitute article. 

In the event that Industrial Part Sphere is only able to provide an article that is of a different condition than originally quoted (e.g New Surplus condition Article is no longer available but Overhauled condition article is available), Industrial Part Sphere will notify the customer of the condition change and provide a new quote to the customer. The customer will have the option to accept the article at the new quote price or cancel the order.  Orders cancelled due to condition changes of articles will be entitled to a full refund for those articles for which a changed condition article resulted in a new price quote; accepted articles will be shipped upon receipt of written confirmation of acceptance of the new quote price for the changed condition article. Any difference in price between the originally quoted article and the new quote price for the changed condition article will be refunded to the customer or applied to outstanding customer account balances at Industrial Part Sphere’ discretion. 

In the event that an article in an order is no longer available and Industrial Part Sphere is able to identify a Parts Manufacturer Approval (“PMA”) alternative part, ASAP Industrial will notify the customer of the PMA alternative and provide a new quote to the customer. The customer will have the option to accept the article at the new quote price or cancel the order.  Orders cancelled due to PMA articles will be entitled to a full refund only for those articles for which a PMA article resulted in a new price quote; accepted articles will be shipped upon receipt of written confirmation of acceptance of the new quote price for the PMA article. Any difference in price between the originally quoted article and the new quote price for the PMA Article will be refunded to the customer or applied to outstanding customer account balances at Industrial Part Sphere’ discretion.
