Terms and Conditions for Transfer Enterprises

Payment Terms

Payments can be made by credit card, debit card, cash or business check. All major credit cards, including American Express are accepted. We do not accept personal checks. Buyers who pay via business checks agree to pay a processing fee of $20 for checks returned due to insufficient funds. The entire buyer’s account balance is immediately due and payable upon notification from the seller that the check was returned for non-payment. A minimum 50% deposit is required to schedule delivery and secure product. All balances are due at the time of delivery or pick-up.

Credit Terms

Interested buyers may apply for credit terms with Transfer Enterprises. Approved buyers will have 30 days after the completion of delivery or pick-up to pay all balances due. A purchase order must be presented to schedule delivery and secure product. Credit terms are instated following the first completed purchase by the buyer. The buyer’s first purchase must be paid in full on a credit card, debit card, or business check under our regular payment terms. Subsequent purchases will fall under credit terms. Approval is not guaranteed. Transfer Enterprises reserves the right to rescind credit terms to any buyer for any reason. Contact the showroom directly to receive a copy of our credit application.

Product Pick-Up

All buyers are welcome to pick-up their purchased furniture at our Manchester, CT showroom. All in-stock product is available for immediate pick-up. If cubicle systems, reupholstered products, custom products, or new products are ordered, a Transfer Enterprises team member will contact you when it is available for pick-up. There is not a fee for pick-up. Buyers must bring a vehicle that is large enough to fit the purchased product. Transfer Enterprises does not provide moving blankets, tarps, straps, ropes, or tie downs. Buyers must secure the product once it is placed into their vehicle. Any partially disassembled products come with all the necessary brackets and screws for reassembly. Transfer Enterprises does not provide tools for assembly. Buyers are responsible for any damage to the product once it leaves the showroom.

Products can be picked up Monday-Thursday from 9am – 4pm, Friday 9am – 3pm, or Saturday 11am-1pm. For all large orders, please call the showroom at least an hour prior to your arrival so that we can have the purchased furniture staged and prepared for pick-up.

Delivery and Installation

Buyers may purchase just delivery, or delivery with installation. For all orders placed online, please indicate interest in receiving an installation charge. As installation charges are unique to each order, a Transfer Enterprises’ team member will contact you directly with the fee.

Delivery is charged by zone pricing to a business loading dock or outside entrance during normal business hours. Normal business hours are stated as 8:30am – 4pm. Delivery charges do not include installation of product, placement of product, or unwrapping of product. The driver will not bring the purchased product into the building.

Installation charges are determined by the quantity and type of products purchased, as well as the conditions of the building in which the product is being installed. Installation conditions include, but are not limited to: dimensions of doorways, number of doors that the product must be carried through, availability of a loading dock, access to the building (i.e. elevators, stairs), structure limitations, parking limitations and the presence of a person to accept delivery at the time scheduled. Delivery conditions are based off representations made by the buyer at the time of sale. Any variations from the buyer’s representation of delivery conditions are the responsibility of the buyer. The buyer will pay additional charges for any misrepresentations. The seller will provide the cost of any additional charges prior to the start of the delivery. If a delivery is not completed as a result of any misrepresentation of building conditions and/or the buyer declines to pay the determined, additional charges, the buyer will pay a restocking fee of 25% of the total invoice price. The delivery charge will not be refunded.

All office space areas must be cleared prior to installation. There will be an additional fee if the buyer’s existing furniture needs to be moved in order to complete the installation. There will be an additional fee for Transfer Enterprises to remove and/or dispose of existing furniture.

The installation team will follow space plans provided by your sales representative. Please confirm any layout modifications with your sales representative prior to your installation date. All cubicle installations must have a layout for installers to follow. Transfer Enterprises will supply one at no cost, or the buyer may provide their own. Installers will not deviate from the cubicle layout. For all product purchases other than workstations, the installation team will place purchased furniture at the direction of the buyer unless a predetermined layout is provided. The decision-maker for product placement must be present at the time of the installation. Additional fees will apply if the installation team places, installs, or moves the same product multiple times.
