The Seller begins working for the Buyer at first Communication. The Seller charges a processing fee, also known as the Deposit, this fee is deducted from the price of the building and is the incitation of this SPECIAL-ORDER Structure. The Buyer understands, even though it is reflected in the price of the Structure, this fee is not for the Structure but, for the services it has provided.  Exceptions: None


Scheduling Delivery and Installation: The Manufacturer will make a good faith effort to deliver and install the Structure with the Manufacturer's acceptance of this Contract and will notify the Buyer at least 24 hours before delivery.  Time estimates given by the Seller are based on information given to them by the Manufacturer the Seller has no control over the scheduling and will not be liable for the accuracy. Delivery, Shipping and installation dates are estimated based on Manufacturer present engineering and manufacturing capacity and scheduling and may be revised by Manufacturer upon receipt or scheduling of Buyer’s order. All shipping dates are approximate and shall be computed from the date of approval and entry into the Manufacturer’s books. This occurs after order approval, all shipping order or acceptance, letter of credit, down payment, and other conditions as specified in the Contract, and of all drawings, information and approvals necessary to provide the Structure and to grant any credit proposed in the Contract. Delivery dates may be rescheduled due to bad weather conditions, installer running behind, accidents, etc. To maintain the low cost of these Structures the Manufacturer uses a freight share method. The Structure probably will not be delivered on a dedicated truck. The Manufacturer combines Structures being installed in similar regions together on one truck and trailer meaning, delivery estimates are given based off of current trends and statistical probability of other Structures being sold. In some states there is a limited installation season. In the event of inclement weather, the Manufacturer at its discretion, may delayed or terminate installations for the season. If an installation needs be terminated due to weather or any other reason and this forces the delivery into the closed building season, the installation will be postponed until the building season reopens. In no event will the Seller or the Manufacturer be liable for delivery time estimates, refunds or consequential damages resulting from any delay in delivery or installation of the Structure. Buyer agrees to give Seller up to 3 installation attempts to deliver said product.

 

Customer Responsible for Locating Underground Utilities: It is the responsibility of the customer to provide the Manufacturer approved independent contractor installers with the location of any underground cables, gas lines, or other utilities. This may include contacting the utility company or Miss Utility to request that the locations of the underground utilities be marked. The Manufacturer is not responsible for any damage caused to underground utilities. The Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Seller and Manufacturer from any liability and costs, including attorney fees, for such damages.


Permits and Legal Authority for Installation: We are entering your property at your request; therefore, the Manufacturer’s, subcontractors, affiliates or third-party entities cannot be held responsible for any damages. Prior to installation of the Structure, Buyer shall obtain all relevant, necessary and required permits or other authorization required by local, state or federal agencies and the approval of any homeowner's association for the lawful erection of the Structure on the site designated by the Buyer. The Seller or the Manufacturer does not provide or assist in this process. If the Buyer fails to obtain any necessary or required permit/authorization, said failure voids any and all warranties otherwise applicable to the Structure. The Manufacturer shall install the Structure on the site designated by the Buyer upon the property specified on the face of this Contract, assuming that the Buyer has confirmed that all requirements are fulfilled. However, should the Manufacturer deliver the unassembled Structure and installation is not completed due to the Buyer's failure to comply with this Contract or by failure to prepare the site, the Manufacturer may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Contract and retain the Buyer's Deposit as liquidated damages for the Buyer's breach. The Buyer shall fully defend, indemnify and hold the Manufacturer and Seller harmless from and against, any and all liquidated or actual damages, including but not limited to the Manufacturer and Seller’s reasonable and necessary attorneys' fees, resulting from a failure to obtain all relevant, necessary and required permits or other authorization required by local, state or federal agencies and the approval of any homeowner's association for the lawful erection of the Structure on the site designated by the Buyer.


Site Preparation and Indemnification: The Buyer expressly acknowledges and agrees to comply with the Manufacturer's site preparation requirements. The Manufacturer's requirements are as follows: a) the site for the Structure must be level; b) the Buyer must remove all electrical wires located less than ten (10) feet above the intended height of the Structure; c) the Buyer must remove all underground utility lines within the Structure site; d) the Buyer must mark all underground utility lines within twenty (20) feet of the Structure's intended footprint. In addition to the site preparation requirements, Buyer agrees to provide a clear right of way and an unimpeded work space for the erection of the Structure. The Manufacturer may, in its sole discretion, determine that the site is not properly prepared or is unsafe for erection of the Structure. Upon a determination that the site is not suitable to begin erection of the Structure, the Manufacturer reserves the right to terminate this Contract. If it necessary to terminate the Contract the Buyer's Deposit will be retained as liquidated damages for the Buyer's breach of Contract. In the alternative, if the Manufacturer determines that the site is unsuitable for erection the Buyer has, but is not limited to, 4 options. 1) The Buyer may give the Manufacturer the authority to make improvements reasonably necessary for the erection of the Structure. Any work done by the Manufacturer to finish site preparation shall be completed at a pre-negotiated rate, determined by an authorized representative of the Manufacturer. 2) At the insistence of the Buyer, the Structure can be installed, on unlevel, temporary, makeshift foundations or anything the manufacture deems is unsuitable for proper installation. This shall void any and all warranties and be accepted AS IS by Buyer. 3) The Buyer can choose to have the Structure remain uninstalled. There will be no compensation for the lack of installation as the Structure is sold with free installation. This shall void any and all warranties and be accepted AS IS by Buyer. 4) The Buyer can choose to reschedule installation for a later date once the site is properly prepared. The Manufacturer may, if necessary, at its sole discretion, charge a reasonable redelivery fee and/or restocking fee.

 

Miscellaneous: While the Seller encourages indiv iduals to assert their right to express an honest opinion through online reviews. The Seller reserves its right for civil action if the review is false and the Seller could be subject to action under defamation and liable laws if what is written is false. Unless the Seller breaches this Contract, the Buyer agrees not to no file a dispute against the Seller with PayPal, their bank, credit card or any financial institution. The exercising its right to dispute illegitimate chargebacks, takes significant amounts of time and resources. In the event the Buyer decides to file a dispute and the institution eventually determines the claim is not legitimate, the Buyer forfeits its Deposit and/ or additional payments to be retained by Seller or Manufacturer as liquidated damages for Buyer's termination of this Contract.  The Seller retains the right to collect damages incurred including but not limited to, the maximum interest allowed by law for the time the funds were removed from the Seller’s account, reasonable fees for the time required to defend itself to the Seller’s institution for the lost claim, any fees charged by the bank as a direct result of the removal of funds, any attorney or consultation fees required to dispute the claim and damages from the changes in merchant services fees. The Buyer also agrees to pay the collections fees, if required, to collect the debt.
