Purchase Orders: All purchase orders must be in hard copy form (mail, fax, or e-‐mail) and use the appropriate part numbers. Dana Port Distribution cannot accept verbal purchase orders unless the verbal purchase order authorization is submitted.

Charge Back Protection Policy:
Dana Port Distribution does not offer a ‘signature required’ option for shipments. Because of this, if a Dana Port Distribution customer loses a credit card chargeback due to the inability to supply a signature delivery confirmation on an order shipped from our facility, Dana Port Distribution will reimburse the dealer’s purchase cost for the products up to ten thousand dollars. This chargeback protection policy is only available after all good faith efforts between the credit card provider consumer, and dealer have been exhausted, including appeals following the initial ruling. This policy does not apply if the customer fails to file the appropriate paperwork, misses deadlines, or in any way inhibits their ability to successfully dispute the chargeback or if the chargeback is lost due to reasons other than the lack of a signature.
Special Orders: Items designated as Special Order cannot be canceled once ordered from the Vendor. Returned Special Order items are subject to a 10% special order return fee. Dana Port Distribution may refuse returns on any Special Order items for any reason.
Warranty: Dana Port Distribution does not offer any warranty on the products it sells. All items are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty only. Credit for defective merchandise will only be issued once the product is inspected and the claim approved by the manufacturer. Unless the manufacturer agrees to cover it, all return shipping for warranty items is the responsibility of the customer.
Returns: Dana Port Distribution only accepts returned within 20 days of the date of purchase. Returned items must be new, unused, and in resellable condition with all pieces included. All returns are subject to approval by Dana Port Distribution . Dana Port Distribution may refuse returns on any Special Order items for any reason. Return shipping is the responsibility of the client. All return shipments must be insured, and the client must file any loss/damage claims. When approved for inspection, a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number will be issued, which must be clearly noted on the shipping waybill and packaging. Returns sent to any other facility other than the warehouse listed on the RMA will result in delayed credit processing times. Dana Port Distribution will refuse any incoming shipments without an RMA number . Dana Port Distribution applies a repackaging fee of $10 to any returns received without acceptable packaging.
Refused Shipments: If a shipment is refused and is returned to Dana Port Distribution by the carrier, the client will be billed any return shipment fees as well as the cost to resend the shipment. This includes shipments where the carrier is unable to deliver after multiple attempts.
Damage Claims/Shipment Shortages: The recipient of the shipment must report all damage and loss claims within 24 hours of receipt. Dana Port Distribution will provide all necessary documentation as well as initiate the claim with the carrier. The recipient must keep all packing materials so the carrier can inspect them. Turn 14 Distribution accepts zero responsibility for clients and/or their customers who misplaced or discarded the packaging of a damaged shipment. After reporting the loss/damage with the carrier, contact Turn 14 Distribution immediately with pictures of the damaged item(s) and packaging to proceed with the claim.
