Terms and Conditions
Below are our Terms and Conditions of our website as well as general information.
We accept orders for shipments to U.S. and Canada destinations only. Shipping is free on orders of $60 or more in the 48 contiguous states. An $8.95 shipping charge is added to orders of less than $60 in the 48 contiguous states. We charge actual shipping to Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. For Canadian orders, an initial $14.95 shipping charge will be added when the order is placed. If the actual shipping charge exceeds the initial $14.95, a customer representative will request approval of the additional charge before the order is shipped. We will also request approval of shipping costs for Alaska and Hawaii orders. We do not mark up shipping charges or add brokerage and handling fees.
All orders are shipped FOB from our shipping dock by FedEx Ground, UPS ground or US mail at our option. Buyer is responsible for customs, duties and other import fees on shipments to Canada.
Orders placed by 12:00pm EST are generally shipped the same day. We will contact you if any item ordered is out of stock and will not be shipped within five business days. Please allow up to seven days for delivery.
Shipping discrepancies must be brought to our attention within five days of receipt. Otherwise the order will be considered complete.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Amazon and PayPal. The credit card is processed when the order is placed. Money orders, cashier checks, personal checks and company checks can be mailed to us. Upon receipt of the former two, we will ship your order. Personal and company checks must clear before we ship the order. We do not ship orders COD.
Please note that this is a payment method only to save you time checking out. Using Amazon as a payment method does NOT provide Prime® Benefits. This means if your order is below $60, we do charge shipping and we do NOT promise 2 day shipping. This is the same as if you purchase something on Amazon's site from a 3rd party. If you have any questions, please contact us.
We strive for 100% customer satisfaction with our products. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, we offer a money back guarantee for 30 days from invoice date. Please contact us to obtain a return authorization number. The returned item must be in the original carton with all packing and paperwork and be salable as new. Please do not use the original carton as the shipping container. Credit will be issued upon inspection of returned goods. Shipping charges are not refundable. If your order qualified for free shipping, we will deduct our shipping cost from the credit amount. You are responsible for the cost of returning the product to us.
Once a return authorization number is obtained, the returned item should be sent to Quality Home Systems, 2416 Watervale Rd #711, Fallston, MD 21047. The return authorization number should be noted on the outside of the carton.
If your order is damaged or incorrect, or a product is defective when first used, please contact us immediately to receive a shipping label so you can return the product without incurring cost to do so. We will send you a replacement product at no charge. If the damaged, incorrect or defective product is not turned over to the carrier within five days, you will be charged the price of the replacement product. Credit will be issued when product is received. These discrepancies must be reported to us within five days of receipt.
An item that is part of a kit can only be returned if it is incorrect or damaged. If a replacement is not requested, credit will be issued for the price of the component less 5%. A component cannot be returned for any other reason.
A 6% sales tax will be added to orders with Maryland destinations.
