Shipping. We normally ship to US customers by surface transportation. All shipping and related charges will be added to the invoice. Allow 3-7 working days inside the continental United States. Upon request, expedited shipment is available at Buyer’s expense.
Delivery. The promised delivery date is the best estimate possible based upon current and anticipated manufacturing capabilities of when the product will be shipped. However, Siskiyou shall not be liable to Buyer or any third party for loss or damage including, without limitation, consequential damages, due to late delivery.
H. Claims/Notice of Defects
Failure of the Buyer to object in writing to any goods shipped to it by Siskiyou Corporation within 30 days after receipt thereof will constitute complete acceptance by Buyer thereof. Defective material must be returned to Siskiyou within 30 days after receipt and with prior authorization from Siskiyou. Siskiyou may at its option recondition or replace the defective goods to meet Buyer’s specifications within a reasonable time period after receipt. Claims for shipping damage must be made with the carrier.
I. Force Majeure
Fulfillment of any order is contingent upon the availability of materials, labor and machines.

J. Payment Terms
Siskiyou payment terms are net 30 days unless special written arrangements have been made. Siskiyou may, at any time, suspend production or delivery of any order or require payment in cash, security of other adequate assurance satisfactory to Siskiyou when, in Siskiyou’s opinion, the financial condition of Buyer or other grounds for insecurity warrant such action. Siskiyou Corporation reserves the right to assess late charges on accounts due past 30 days at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% per annum). All goods shall remain Siskiyou’s property until the Buyer has paid in full for such goods, and Buyer hereby grants Siskiyou a security interest in such goods until payment in full has been made. All goods are shipped FOB Siskiyou’s shipping dock, Grants Pass, Oregon.
