Lead time depend of the configuration selected. It vary from immediate shipment to the maximum of 5 weeks. Typical lead times are 2 - 3 weeks. In most cases we are able to determine lead time more accurately at the moment of order placement, having in mind current production load.
Typically we are using FedEx Freight for local shipments (US, Canada and Mexico) and UPS "Supply chain solutions" for international air freight shipments. Shipping costs are paid by the customer and are included in the invoice.
Any customer that prefer to use its own shipping account with carrier available to us in US has completely free shipping. Packaging and handling are free.
All shipments outside US jurisdiction are on prepaid terms. Normally we need at least 20% down payment in order to include the selected system in our production schedule. If the desired configuration is already in stock, we will need the entire payment before shipment. Typical practice of our international customers is to pay the order completely to avoid the second transaction banks charges. All local duties and taxes during the import process are paid by the customer.
Customers in US are eligible for open accounts with "net 30" term. We need to have good trade profile in the transactions with the current vendors for last 24 months. After receiving this information we will be able to grant this option. Typically we offer this option to all educational institutions based in US, well known US based companies and US government.
We accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard and bank transfers.
All systems and their components have 1 year warranty. We also offer second and third year coverage. Please contact Accurate CNC, Inc. if you need an extended warranty.
Formally we offer free technical support and free software updates during the first year after system purchase. Practically we never have charged our customers for technical support despite of the purchase date.
Lately we start generate a "pro-forma invoices" as a quotation document. This form gives the customer firm pricing in the next 30 days and serves as a quote. Pro-forma invoices are NOT a financial document that can be used for company/individual balances and are not accepted as a tax returns document. At the time of shipping we will issue a commercial invoice as a formal document of purchase and payment.
In order to generate pro-forma invoice we will need your shipping and billing address.
In addition to the traditional documents needed for shipping and invoicing we offer documents related to import process. As an example a "NAFTA certificate of origin", "CE compliance certificate" etc. Please contact us for other documents needed for import. If we are legally able to issue them we will do so.
