Credit approved orders placed before cutoff time per warehouse will ship the same day. The cutoff time for LTL shipments differ from each warehouse. For a list of all cutoff times please click here. Orders approved or received after 5:30pm local warehouse time will ship the following day. However, we try to accommodate rush orders after cutoff times. Orders are shipped UPS Ground unless otherwise requested. Freight, handling fee ($4.49/order), insurance, and COD fees (if applicable) are added to each invoice. All goods are shipped FOB our warehouse. Any claims for goods damaged in shipment must be made with the freight carrier.
Drop shipments must be net, credit card, or prepaid. In the case that the credit card declines, the cardholder will be notified by our Customer Support and will then have 1 business day to update the payment information. If the cardholder fails to provide proper payment during that time, the order will be cancelled. When goods are shipped to 3rd parties, it is the customer's responsibility to inform the 3rd party of the exact goods to be received. Goods must be inspected and verified for accuracy before decoration. TSC Apparel will not be held responsible for discrepencies on orders shipped to an address other than the invoiced account or for the decorated or washed garments. Any items that go on backorder will not be invoiced until the goods ship. Invoicing might be delayed since it is shipping from a 3rd party. For a list of all mill guidelines click here.
Goods imported into the U.S. from other countries may not be eligible for export to some countries. It is the customer's responsibility to work with a freight forwarder for all export orders and to confirm documentation requirements and those goods can be released from customs at their final destination. TSC Apparel is not responsible for providing documentation or information that may be required to export goods purchased from TSC Apparel.
