Shipping Policy

2)Delivery Information

Please note that the estimated delivery times are only estimates and cannot be guaranteed.

Delivery is available prepaid only in the mainland United States and Canada.

Delivery outside the US and Canada, will need to be paid by the customer directly to the shipping company.  Deaver and Associates is not a broker and cannot act as a broker for products being shipped outside the United States or Canada.

3)Shipping Methods

UPS/USPS:  Most shipments under 75 lbs are shipped via UPS or USPS.  These shipments, if purchased online, are calculated and the price is given to you upon checkout.  Please provide accurate addresses when checking out.  Most items are shipped from our Lumberton, NC Warehouse.  Some items could be drop shipped from other locations.  Unless requested, all shipments will ship standard ground service.  Delivery of products is only conducted Monday through Friday.  Delivery companies do not offer delivery on Saturday and Sunday.

LTL or Freight Shipping: Most orders that are over 75 lbs are shipped via LTL truck.  For example Estes Express, FedEx Freight, AAA Cooper, etc.  These shipments are packaged on a pallet and secured for shipping.  An LTL shipment is a less than truckload.  This is a shipment that is too large to ship via UPS or USPS.  Normally any sewing machine you see in our store will require LTL shipping.  Please provide accurate addresses when checking out.  Most items are shipped from our Lumberton, NC Warehouse.   See specific instructions and information on LTL shipping below.

Instructions for LTL Shipments:

  1. When receiving a shipment via LTL, someone must be home or at the business to receive the package.
  2. Call ahead for appointment is available for an additional fee.
  3. LTL carriers will normally not call and set up a delivery time, unless requested.
  4. Please provide an accurate shipping address, as well as phone numbers, so that you can be found the day of delivery.
  5. LTL Shipments that are delivered to a home will be charge an additional fee for residential delivery as well as for delivery with a lift gate.
  6. LTL Shipments that are delivered to a business will be charged an additional fee if a lift gate is needed.
  7. The LTL delivery driver is only responsible for removing the product from his/her truck.  They are not responsible for moving your order into your home or business.  They are also not responsible for setting your product up once received.  You will need to provide help to move your product from the truck inside your home or business.  If you are a business with a loading dock, the driver will remove your shipment and place it inside your building from the loading dock.
  8. Always inspect your shipment upon arrival.  Any damaged shipments must be noted to the truck company.  Replacement of damaged products will be made once funds are received from the shipping company, once a claim has been filed.  Claims can normally take 4 to 6 weeks to conclude.  Note that shipping companies do not pay full amount for damaged items unless insurance has been taken out on the shipment. 
  9. If you set an appointment with the LTL carrier, you must keep the appointment.  If you cancel the appointment or are not at the location at time of delivery, an additional fee will be added to the shipment for a redelivery.
  10. Following the directions given will make any shipment much more manageable.  If there are any question, you may reach customer support at 877-608-4006.

4) Shipping Damage/Arrival of Order

Upon arrival of your order it is suggested that you are personally on location to receive the order. 

UPS / FedEx: Please inspect your package when you receive it from the shipping carrier. If you notice any damage from shipping, please contact Deaver and Associates at 877-608-4005 to report the damage. DO NOT use the product. You must contact us within 5 business days. Make sure that you keep all packaging (boxes, shipping labels, packing material, etc...), as the shipping carrier will come to inspect the package.

Freight Carrier: Always inspect your shipment before signing for it. It is best to completely remove your shipment from its containers, regardless of the condition of the box, inspect it thoroughly, assemble the product (if possible), and if it is damaged make a note of the damage on the delivery receipt, or repackage it and decline delivery. When you sign the delivery receipt, it is a legal contract that states that you accepted the product in that condition.  This is very important because once you have signed for your shipment it is your responsibility if it is damaged. Save your box and all packaging materials until you are satisfied that your product and all accessories are satisfactory.

Replacement of damaged products will be made once funds are received from the shipping company, once a claim has been filed.  Claims can normally take 4 to 6 weeks to conclude.  Insurance must be taken out on orders if you wish to have a full refund of shipping charges and sale amount.  Shipping companies do not pay full value of damaged goods, unless insurance has been placed on the item.

5)Extra Delivery Charges

Extra charges for delivery may apply in any of the following circumstances:

  1. If you change the address where your goods are to be delivered at short notice.
  2. If delivery is more costly and/or takes longer than it otherwise would have because of any special factors that you failed to tell us about.  This could include failure to note a residential delivery address, need of a lift gate, military installation, prison location, etc.
  3. If the goods need to be redelivered a redelivery fee could apply.  This could be the result of not being in contact with the shipping company the day of delivery, denial of the shipment, etc.
  4. If the goods need to be redelivered because there was no-one at the delivery address aged 18 or over to sign for the goods at the time arranged for delivery.

If you need to inform us of any special factors regarding your delivery after you have placed and confirmed your order please contact us.

We will let you know if any extra delivery charges are payable and you must pay these charges before delivery or re-delivery (as appropriate) or, if charged after delivery, within 7 days of receiving notice of such extra delivery charges.

If delivery proves impossible or impractical on 2 or more occasions because of access problems,  or because there was no-one at the delivery address aged 18 or over to sign for the goods at the time arranged for delivery, then we may cancel your order and deduct a charge for our administration, transit and storage costs which will be no more than 30% of the price of the goods from your refund. Delivery charges will not be refunded.

6)Refusal of Shipment

If a shipment is refused for any reason, you, the customer will be charged for shipping to and from your location.  Shipping charges are nonrefundable.  You will also be charged a 25% restocking fee.  The difference in what you paid will be refunded or given as store credit.
