It is highly recommended that Customer order “range samples” and/or photos of any special order prior to order quotation. Any request for site and material inspections by AGATE at the factory or distribution point need to be requested in writing prior to quotation. Additional charges may apply if AGATE is requested to inspect, send samples, or expedite sample processing and/or shipment after material quotation has been prepared or order received. Range samples and photos are only a representation of material to ship. Actual material to ship is subject to natural and typical variation for any particular product. Any additional criteria requested by Customer relating to a special order needs to be addressed in writing prior to quotation. No changes or cancelation of a special order are allowed under any circumstances after order has been placed. Any quoted lead-time to process or ship is an estimate only and is not guaranteed. AGATE is not liable for any delays in special order material processing, shipment, arrival, or otherwise.
Claims: Customer is responsible for acceptance of product condition, specification and count at time of pick up or delivery or prior to storage at AGATE (whichever occurs earlier) and/or prior to installation. Customer or the slab fabricator must inspect slabs for color, condition, and thickness prior to loading. AGATE will assist in loading but it is the driver’s responsibility to properly secure all material. Customer will indemnify and hold harmless AGATE from any and against all liabilities, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions, suits, costs, expenses, and disbursements, including court costs, arising from the loading, transportation or delivery of the materials. Installation constitutes acceptance of any and all materials and no adjustments will be made after installation of the product(s).

AGATE will not be responsible for improperly installed material. All claims for damages, shortages, or price differences must be noted on the delivery receipt and reported to AGATE’s office via telephone notification within twenty-four (24) hours of receipt of the products. Payment must be received in full for the invoice/sales receipt in which any claim pertains before the claim will be accepted for review. An AGATE representative must first complete an investigation to determine the source of the damage/claim and whether a credit will be issued. AGATE is not liable for loss or damage by a second party shipper. Damage or delays resulting from second party handling must be filed directly with the company responsible for delivery.
Storage: The granting of storage to Customers of products, which are fully paid and purchased from AGATE at AGATE store locations, is at the sole discretion of AGATE and on terms determined by AGATE.
