Shipping For Virtual Reality Headsets & VR Bundles

 

All shipping for our VR bundles and hard drives is free of charge and is shipped via USPS or Fed-Ex.  Delivery time will be updated when you place your order and a tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as your item ships.

 

We expect to deliver most units within 2 days so it is similar to Amazon Prime’s shipping service, however, for early thru mid-2016, due to delays with Rift and Vive production, there might be slight delays in shipping orders as we wait for new units to arrive, in those cases, we will ship your VR-ready PCs and hard drives and include a free Google Cardboard you can use while waiting for your Rift or Vive to arrive, along with an estimated shipping date.

 

Also, if you apply for financing at checkout, your order might not ship until the financing company clears the funds with us, which can take a day to a week in some cases.  We will provide email updates if you finance your order on the status updates the bank sends us regarding the financing.  If you are using Global Financial or Zibby through GetFinancing, we highly recommend making the first payment using your card to avoid having to fill out additional paperwork at the start, as they are more likely to release the funds right away when you make the first payment as a method of identity verification.

 

 

Shipping Time For Furniture

 

Shipping furniture is no easy task! We have to use special carriers to deliver heavy items to prevent injury and avoid damage while its on the way.

All orders are shipped via ground freight carriers. All in-stock Items ship within 3-5 days, unless otherwise noted (e.g., special order items).

Deliveries can take a week or two after the shipping date, depending on the destination.  In some cases, due to weather, holidays, and where the destination is over a thousand miles from the warehouse, shipping can take up to a month or more but in most cases, the freight company is able to deliver within a week from when it leaves the warehouse.

The freight carrier will contact you in advance to set up a delivery time frame with you. We offer free shipping in the continental United States on most of our products. Alaska & Hawaii excluded. Please refer to our delivery acceptance instruction for further details.

 

Picture versus Reality

 

Color, texture, and graining variations can occur in natural products like leather, wood and stone. These are not normally considered imperfections. For leather products all colors are bound to have variations in every production line. Color representations on computer terminals and screens can be different based on settings and various display technologies. To optimize website performance, product pictures have been scaled down in detail to help make web pages load faster. As a direct result, in some small cases fine detail in the pictures of furniture may have been sacrificed for the websites performance. It is the customer’s responsibility to request additional high resolution pictures so that they may see exactly what they are getting before purchasing. Customer also agrees that they may not dispute the finish, or color or texture or any other physical attribute after taking delivery of a product.

Payment

 

We accept payments from PayPal, and the following major credit cards can be used through Paypal: Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover.

We also have partnered with a company Get Financing to provide financing on all orders.

Get Financing can be applied for online, just checkout and select “apply for financing” and you can get an instant decision, and immediate financing, right away!

 

Order Confirmation

 

After your order is completed, you will automatically be sent within 24 Hours an “Order Confirmation” email to the email address you entered during checkout. This email is your receipt – so don’t delete it! We encourage you to review the order and advise us of any spelling or numerical mistakes so that we can quickly make any necessary changes.

Price Match Guarantee

 

We will match any competitor’s price for new items.

 

ADDITIONAL SHIPPING INFORMATION

 

Shipping furniture is no easy task. Most of our products are not shipped using your traditional package delivery services like UPS or Fedex, instead, they are palletized and shipped via ground freight using companies that you may or may not be familiar with. Overall, we offer the following delivery services for our furniture:

Small Parcel

 

Whenever possible we will ship smaller, lighter items via UPS, FEDEX, DHL or USPS. These companies provide the fastest and most reliable method of shipping available for many items we sell. Depending on how close you are to the shipping warehouse, your item will arrive between 1 and 6 business days (1 to 10 business days for USPS) after it leaves the warehouse. We do not require a signature for deliveries, but please note that the decision to leave your package without a signature is at the discretion of the delivery person. If you want an item left at your doorstep, the best thing to do is leave a note on your door asking the driver to leave your package with “No Signature Required.” Be sure to include your name and tracking number on the note.

Curb Side Delivery

 

Available for selected items unless otherwise noted. Curbside delivery by definition means the trucking service will park in front of your delivery address and you will need to receive the product outside. Geil & Mehr assumes no responsibility or liability to damage of the product, personal injury to someone or any other issue that can arise due to handling the product from the curbside to the inside space. If the service requested prior to arranging a delivery time is curb side, the customer may not modify this request to a white glove delivery for any reason.

All delivery dates contained on GeilAndMehr.com are estimates only.

An exact delivery date can change due to production time frame, freight loading plans, and freight shipment logistics.
Items prior to being shipped out are thoroughly inspected by quality control. Because of this, furniture deliveries are received in good condition UNLESS damaged in transit.

You have both a right AND a responsibility to inspect all items carefully during the delivery.

Customers who sign for delivery and do not notate “Damage upon delivery” assume responsibility if merchandise is damaged. If the product itself appears severely damaged or it’s the wrong item you must take pictures of the packaging when being unloaded or while in the truck, you should submit the pictures and you may refuse the delivery. Please notify Geil & Mehr of refusal so we can anticipate the return and send out a new item.

Please make arrangements to prepare yourself and have help upon delivery of your merchandise as most deliveries consist of large and heavy items. At the time of delivery, open the items out of the packaging to check for damages in presence of the driver. If the truck driver is not willing to wait for you to inspect the actual item, you MUST write: “TRUCK DRIVER REFUSED TO WAIT” and “DAMAGED UPON ARRIVAL” on the delivery receipt.
If the packaging or product has any damage, or if there is any reason you are concerned with the delivery:

If it is damaged, you MUST write “Product Damaged” on the tracking company’s receipt called proof of delivery or the Bill Of Lading (BOL) prior to signing off.
If anything is missing, you MUST list the missing items on the delivery receipt.
You MUST retain applicable packaging materials, and notify us immediately.
Take pictures of the damaged items immediately.
File a claim within 48 hours.

In the event that damage is not noted on the waybill when signed “received in good condition”, on the delivery receipt or the applicable packaging materials are not retained, would make it impossible to file a claim with the tracking company. In this case, it will be impossible for us to help out with any claim filed.

 

Unavailability or Refusing delivery

Once a customer rep notifies you about your order ready to ship, you must make yourself available within 1-3 weeks to accept delivery. The trucking company will call you to schedule the exact date and time frame for delivery. If you are not available or unable to take a scheduled delivery, the tracking company allows up to 3 days to reschedule. After 3 days, a storage fee will be charged and redelivery fees may apply.

If you refuse delivery of an item that is in good condition and neither damaged nor defective, you will be responsible for the ACTUAL freight charges for both ways and a restocking fee.
If by some reason you are not available or you refuse delivery of the merchandise you will be liable for daily storage fees assigned by the carrier.

If we are unable to confirm delivery of your item, this may result in the denial of a refund. The package should be fully insured. We will not accept any uninsured packages.
We require that returns are shipped via a carrier that will provide you with a return tracking number. If a return is shipped without a tracking number the customer will be liable if the item is lost by the carrier and no refund will be issued. Providing a tracking number will also accelerate your return process. Retain your tracking number and email it to us at sales@geilandmehr.com so that we can check on the progress of your return.

In the event that a return becomes damaged on its way back to the return destination, Geil & Mehr will inform the customer via email that the item was received damaged and will hold the product for up to 30 days.

Special Order and Backorder Delays

 

Delays in production and shipping may occur. If a delay occurs, don’t panic. We will work hard to get your purchase to you, but please keep in mind that we work with high-ticket and large items, which come from all over the world. We will make all efforts to quote accurate lead times and notify all our customers promptly. Please note that we are not responsible for product delays from the manufacturer. Due to increased security by governments, customs delay may also occur, which is beyond our control. In most cases, delays occur during busy seasons, holidays, production delays, port congestions or other factors not in our control. Geil and Mehr is not responsible for delays in stock replenishment, orders may not be cancelled or be eligible for a refund or rebate based on late merchandise arrival.

 

Claims

 

If the customer has any claims other than what was noted on the delivery receipt, It is upon the discretion of Geil & Mehr to resolve the matter. If the customer has failed to follow our terms and conditions as per agreement to purchase from Geil & Mehr, we would not be responsible for any damages, shortages or any other claims.
All claims will be resolved and authorized only by the Claims Department Manager of Geil & Mehr. (not by the sales representative or the delivery team.) Each and every claim must be properly filed within 48 hours, in order to be considered. Customers must file a claim at the claims form with all required information including a few images of the damage. All properly submitted claims would have a resolution after 3-5 business days reviewing time.

It is the responsibility of the customer to file a claim and to call us to make sure that we received the claim and all needed information. If items are damaged or suspected to be damaged, it must be documented “Damaged upon arrival” where you sign for the items. The delivery driver must wait while you inspect. If the driver does not agree to wait, note “TRUCK DRIVER REFUSED TO WAIT” on the bill of delivery and refuse the shipment.

It is important to be as detailed and descriptive as possible on the delivery slip before you sign for your items. A signature indicates acceptance; without inspecting the boxes, you are accepting the shipment “as is” and will be fully responsible for any replacements (including freight) or repair costs if transit related.
Geil & Mehr is not responsible to resolve any claims if the customer has signed the delivery receipt without any notation of missing parts or damages as all sales are final.
