  • Shipping charges are non-refundable.
  • Techniweld USA only pays freight in situations where we made a mistake sending the wrong product or a similar error.
  • Customer is responsible for all shipping charges, as well as risk of loss on all return merchandise. Techniweld USA highly suggests that each customer uses a shipping service that offers full insurance options for returns
  • Overages or shortages must be reported within 48 hours of receipt of shipments. Claims must be noted at the time of receipt to file against carrier responsible.
  • Tracking numbers are required for all RGAs
  • If item was shipped via drop ship, the product must be returned to the original vendor – not Techniweld USA facilities. Do not send the product to Techniweld USA for shipping back to the manufacturer.

Freight Policy

  • Techniweld USA utilizes a minimum order threshold allowing orders totaling above this threshold to qualify for prepaid freight. The minimum order amount to qualify for prepaid freight varies by customer and may change with written notice.
  • Prepaid freight includes transportation of products on a specific order to a commercial address with a loading dock.
  • Any special routing defined by the customer will be the sole responsibility of the customer and relevant freight charges will be added to the invoice.
  • All additional services that are requested of Freight/parcel carriers by our customers including, but not limited to, lift gates, restricted access, delays, inside deliveries, appointments, call-aheads, inside deliveries, or additional restrictions are not covered by Techniweld USA and will be billed separately to our customers as accessorial charges.
  • If for any reason the requested shipping method is unavailable for this shipment, it will be sent best way (Pre-pay & Add)
  • Items prone to damage in small quantities, such as filler metal spools, when sending by parcel will be sent by LTL freight (Pre-Pay & Add) upon the discretion of the shipping department.
  • For purchase orders where a majority of the dollar value is ER70S-6, at least one pallet quantity (i.e. 2200lbs for drums, 2376lbs for 33lb spools and 2640lbs for 44lb spools) of ER70S-6 must be purchased in order to receive free shipping. This is the most efficient way to deliver product to our customers that both minimizes freight cost, which we can pass along in the form of low pricing, as well as minimizes potential freight carrier damage due to additional banding, corner guards, and other pallet reinforcement.
  • In accordance with Techniweld USA's Terms of Service, all billing disputes including those related to damaged product, freight claims, missing items, etc. should be handled in a timely manner. Techniweld USA allows 5 days from delivery to report concealed damage or missing items. Techniweld USA is unable to process these types of requests after that point. Proof of delivery can be provided by Techniweld USA up to 90 days after delivery. Proof of delivery after 90 days is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain.

Additional Fee for Small Orders

For orders totaling less than $100, a small order convenience fee of $10 will incur.
