Reed James Engineering – Terms & Conditions of Sales



All pickup orders for standard models have a lead time of approximately 4 to 8

weeks, depending on the type of order. Custom orders will take longer. Lead times

quoted are approximate and orders may take longer depending on my current work load.

Please understand that all pickups (other than eBay items) are built to order and

that although we work hard to get things out the door in the time quoted, sometimes

things get hung up and take longer than expected. This is the reality for any small

custom job shop.



Expect a longer lead time to process custom orders. Unfortunately, once an order is

processed, NO CHANGES MAY BE MADE. (Please ask any questions before finalizing your

order!) Lead times may exceed 6-12 months, but that is extremely rare. For custom

orders, 4-6 months is not uncommon, but we do our best to get custom orders out in

3-4 months.



Reed James Engineering does not accept returns or cancellations on any custom or

made to order pickups. Store credit may only be issued on stock items. Returned

items must be in perfect condition, and returned within 30 days. By placing your

custom order you agree that all sales are final and that there are no charge backs

or cancellations.




Delivery times vary. Currently all orders are shipped USPS.  It is possible for

packages to get held up at times shipping to certain locations. All packages are

insured in case they are lost are damaged. If you wish to use a different shipping

company, please make that request at the time you place the order.
