All shipping weights shown in this catalog are approximate. There is a $2.50(G) charge per carton for freight and handling. All cartons containing merchandise valued in excess of one hundred dollars will be insured and charged as freight and handling. If the freight charge is billed to a third party account, the declared value of the carton will be forwarded to the carrier to be charged to the third party account. All merchandise is shipped FOB Los Angeles. Unless a specific method is indicated with the order, we will use our judgment and ship via the best and most suitable means of transportation. Delivery address changes must be submitted in writing no later than 3 business days prior to scheduled ship date. All efforts to accommodate last minute changes will be attempted. Upon notification by carrier, additional charges for residential delivery, address correction or incorrect account number will be invoiced at $6.25(G), $12.50(G), and $20.00(G), respectively. International shipments bill to third party carrier account and require U.S. company account number for shipping and brokerage charges and V.A.T. importer number, R.F.C. number, or tax identification number for duty and taxes. Any trailing charges will be invoiced after carrier's invoice is processed. Additionally, a letter on company letterhead is required to confirm that IMC is authorized to ship a specific purchase order on the supplied 3rd party account. Every effort is taken to assure your order is delivered complete and in perfect condition. However, circumstances outside of IMC control may result in damage to a carton and possibly its contents. If this were to occur, the following procedures must be followed in order to file a claim. First, report the damage immediately. Tell the carrier delivery person that the package is damaged and take pictures. Insist on an immediate inspection and a notation on the carrier delivery record. Do not sign for the delivery without inspecting the cartons for damage. Second, take inventory and determine the extent of any damage.
Just because the carton shows signs of damage, the contents may have arrived safely. Third, if the contents of your order are damaged, contact IMC immediately and provide a complete description of the damage including the pictures and a count of damaged items. Please retain all original packaging for the carrier to inspect. Upon receipt of the details, pictures and carrier inspection report, IMC will help the shipper of record file the claim.
Speculative samples can be produced for the cost of the item at first column, plus setup and run charge(s).
Terms will be extended to those companies whose credit standing has been approved by IMC.

VISA®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover® credit cards will be accepted for payment of deposits prior to shipping and open invoices upon the completion and return of an approved credit card authorization form.
