C. Placing Orders on this Site. (back to top)

You may place an order for the purchase of merchandise on this Site. All purchases are subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use, including the following:

1. Order Limitations. Receiving a web order acknowledgement via e-mail or an online ordering confirmation does not guarantee the acceptance of an order by Minnesota Equipment. Minnesota Equipment may, at its own discretion, limit or cancel items or quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. Minnesota Equipment also reserves the right to reject any order you place with us. These restrictions may include orders placed by the same Site account, the same credit card, and orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event we make a change to an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail, phone and/or billing address provided at the time the order was made. Minnesota Equipment reserves the right to limit or prohibit sales to dealers. Minnesota Equipment reserves the right to discontinue the sale of any product listed on the Site at any time without notice. You acknowledge that there may be a period of time after an order has been submitted where the ordered product becomes unavailable. If a product is not in stock or is otherwise unavailable for shipment following completion of the ordering process, you may choose to cancel your order or continue to place the order subject to the “backordered” status of the product. Under such circumstances, you agree that we may cancel your order before or after completion of the order process. Rarely, you may receive a shipping confirmation from us, but the product is no longer available. You agree that we may rescind our acceptance and cancel your order without penalty if we are unable to ship the product you ordered due to unavailability. In the event that Minnesota Equipment cancels an order after a shipping confirmation has been sent to you, Minnesota Equipment will refund all fees paid by you for the cancelled products.

5. Oversize Fee. Some products sold on the Site may have weight or dimensional restrictions which are considered “oversized” by our order delivery carriers. Special handling may be required to ensure the product is delivered to you safely. An oversized fee may be applied to such products and passed along to the purchaser of these specific products. The amount of the fee will vary by product. In the event of a “FREE Shipping” promotion, the oversize fee is excluded from the promotion and will be charged as specified.

6. Product Substitution. Products (and country of origin) may be substituted and may not always exactly match catalog descriptions and/or images.

7. Availability. Certain products may not be available for sale in all areas. Please contact your Minnesota Equipment dealer regarding availability.

8. Terms of Sale.Minnesota Equipment’ acceptance of any order is subject to your assent to all of the terms and conditions set forth in Minnesota Equipment’ acknowledgment, and your assent to these Terms shall be presumed from your receipt of Minnesota Equipment’ acknowledgment, or from your acceptance of all or any part of the goods or services ordered. No addition or modification of these Terms shall be binding upon Minnesota Equipment unless agreed to by Minnesota Equipment in writing. If a purchase order or other correspondence contains terms or conditions contrary to these Terms or any terms and conditions contained in Minnesota Equipment’ acknowledgment, Minnesota Equipment’ acceptance of any order shall not be construed as assent to any additional terms and conditions, nor will that constitute a waiver by Minnesota Equipment of any of the terms and conditions contained in Minnesota Equipment’ acknowledgment.

9. 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 Minnesota Equipment attempts to ensure that its products comply with such codes, it cannot guarantee compliance (whether purchases are made at the Store or on this Site), and cannot be responsible for how the product is installed or used. Before purchase and use of a product, please review the product application, national and local codes and regulations to be sure that the product, installation and use will comply with them.

10. Materials of Trade. You represent that if you are purchasing goods as their “materials of trade” as defined in the Hazardous Materials Regulations in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, that the goods will be used in direct support of your business, which is not transportation, and that such goods shall not be resold or transported in a vehicle other than one owned by the Customer.

11. Shipping ORM-D Material/Products. A package labeled as ORM-D material is defined as a material, such as a consumer commodity, which presents a limited hazard during transportation due to its form, quantity and packaging. ORM-D specified material/products must be shipped via ground transportation. Packages containing ORM-D material/products will be clearly identified with an external “blue” ORM-D circular label and at least 2 directional labels.

12. Shipping via Common Carrier Freight Truck (LTL). Orders weighing more than 100 lb. or having combined dimensions (LxWxH) that exceed 169 inches cannot be shipped via a small package freight carrier. Orders meeting or exceeding these criteria will be converted to ship over the road via a common carrier freight trailer truck. A customer service agent will contact you if your order is converted to this ship type. In some cases, additional shipping fees may be required. The freight carrier will contact you to arrange delivery of your order. Someone must be present to inspect and sign for delivery of the order.

13. Pricing. Product prices offered on this Site may vary from other advertised prices due to varying conditions in different geographic markets and areas. Prices may and will vary between the Site and Minnesota Equipment stores and the prices are not guaranteed to be matched at the time of purchase. The prices displayed on the Site are quoted in U.S. dollars and are valid and effective only within the United States and Minnesota Equipment does not guarantee or provide any warranty regarding the stability or accuracy of any currency exchange rates. Prices shown on the Site do not include any shipping and handling or sales taxes, and if applicable to the order, will be added to your total invoice price. You are responsible for the payment of any shipping and handling charges and state and local sales or use taxes that may apply to your order.

14. Sales Tax Policy. Because Minnesota Equipment does business throughout the United States and collects and remits sales tax as required by law, the Site also collects and remits sales tax as appropriate. If you have tax-exempt status, please visit any of our Minnesota Equipment stores or contact us in any manner specified in Section F. At this time tax-exempt sales (for individuals or products) are not available on this Site or by any of the Minnesota Equipment customer service functions. The only means of tax-exempt sales is for you to visit your local Minnesota Equipment store and complete the tax-exempt forms available at checkout.

15. Paying for Your Order. You may pay for your orders with a Minnesota Equipment gift card or with the following major credit cards issued in the United States of America. Currently, Minnesota Equipment accepts Visa, MasterCard©, American Express©, Discover© Card;, Minnesota Equipment Gift Cards and Electronic Checks. Credit cards are not charged until the order is shipped. Gift Cards and checks are charged at the time the order is submitted and are refunded via check from Minnesota Equipment in the event of an item or order cancellation. When an order is submitted, Minnesota Equipment may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit card provider at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit line. Please contact your credit card provider for more information. Also, please note that the total purchase price of your order will be reserved on your credit card at the time your order is placed and could remain reserved for a total of up to 5 business days, even if your order is cancelled.

16. Online Coupons and Promotion Codes. Online coupons and promotions are valid only during the dates specified. Exclusions may apply to any promotion or coupon. Online-only promotions and coupons exclude “in-store only” items, shipping charges and fees, tax, gift cards, special orders, and online parts store purchases. Not valid with any other discounts, coupons or promotions.

18. Using Gift Cards. Gift Cards, unlike credit cards, are debited at the time an order is placed. Gift Cards will automatically be redeemed to purchase totals up to the total purchase amount (including tax and shipping). In the event the total purchase amount exceeds the value of the Gift Card, you will be required to use a credit card to pay the difference. Any amount charged to a credit card will be treated as set forth above. In the event of a return (complete or partial) of an order using a Gift Card, the returned amount will first be credited to the credit card and any remaining amount will be provided to you via check sent from Minnesota Equipment. Processing times for return checks typically take a minimum of 2-3 weeks. Minnesota Equipment may, for gift card services, use a third party service provider whose terms and conditions and privacy policy may also apply.

19. Shipping. Online orders may be shipped to your home or to a Minnesota Equipment store for customer pick-up. Orders ship on normal business days, which are Monday through Friday, excluding government holidays. Weekend shipment of orders is not currently available. For our Overnight service (e. g. 2-Day or next business day arrival), your order must be completed before Noon Central Time Monday through Friday in order for it to ship the same day (subject to available inventory). Overnight service is not available for Ship-to-Store orders at this time. Items not allowed by law to be shipped by air freight will automatically be converted to standard shipping for delivery. Actual shipping time for standard service is based on final destination and product availability.

The Standard Shipping option includes the use of the UPS Basic or UPS Mail Innovations shipping method. Standard shipping of most packages whose total weight is equal to or less than 5 lbs. and less than 84 inches in length, width and height combined will be shipped via UPS Basic shipping method. Standard shipping of most packages whose total weight is equal to or less than 1 lb. and less than 84 inches in length, width and height combined will be shipped via UPS Mail Innovations shipping method. With UPS Basic or Mail Innovations standard shipping, your order is delivered by UPS to the closest United States Postal Service (USPS) Center of the ship to address and delivered to the final shipping address destination via the United States Postal Service (USPS). In cases where UPS Basic or Mail Innovations is used to ship your order, the UPS tracking number will continue to provide tracking details from the United States Postal Service (USPS) Center drop-off location to the final “ship to” destination. UPS Mail Innovations package tracking numbers may not be available for up to 48 hours after the order ship confirmation email is sent. UPS Basic or Mail Innovations packages will be delivered to the door in most cases, but can also be delivered in a mailbox. Packages shipped via UPS Basic or Mail Innovations may take up to 7-14 business days for delivery.

The Pickup-at-Store delivery method ships orders to a Minnesota Equipment store chosen by the customer for pick-up at the store. Pickup-at-Store orders are usually available to pickup within 5 to 7 days of receiving the order confirmation. Orders not picked up or claimed within 90 days of the order date will be automatically returned. A credit for the order total, less a 10% restocking fee in some cases, will be issued to the credit card originally used to place the order, or a company issued check for gift card or EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer / Check) order is given. A government issued photo ID is required to pick-up the order. The person picking up the order must match the name of the person designated to pick up the order when the order was placed.

Minnesota Equipment offers shipping to all United States addresses excluding Alaska and Hawaii. We do not currently ship orders outside the United States. We do not ship orders to APO/FPO addresses. Minnesota Equipment does not offer gift packaging. Order information such as a billing or shipping address that is inaccurate or incomplete may result in delays. Products cannot be shipped to incomplete addresses. Minnesota Equipment is not liable for late or lost deliveries. Subject to our Return Policy, please contact the carrier to resolve any credit or adjustments related to delivery failures or delays.
