ProPools does not guarantee transit times on ground shipped packages or standard freight, especially when it pertains to special orders. Things happen in transit, sometimes damages occur, as well as delays outside of ours or the carrier’s control. As such, do
not schedule installation of any product(s) until all product(s) on the order have been properly delivered in good condition.
Shipping costs automatically calculated by our website are based mainly on weight and size. Occasionally there are errors in these calculations due to oversize and other surcharges. In the event this happens, you will be contacted with the additional shipping costs. Shipments west of the Rocky Mountains may incur
an additional freight charge.
Flat rate shipping fees applies to the continental United States ONLY. Other areas, such as Hawaii, Alaska, Florida Keys or outside of the U.S., will require additional shipping fees. Taxes and duties for shipments outside the U.S. are the responsibility of the customer. Flat rate shipping applies only to specific items. Adding additional items to your order may or may not incur additional shipping charges.
Orders with expedited shipping (Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air, 3rd Day Select) placed before 12pm Pacific Standard Time typically ship the same day. All shipping times are based on "business" days. For example, a 2nd Day Air order placed on a Thursday early enough to ship out that same day, will arrive on Monday. UPS does not delivery on Saturday without an added fee to do so. A phone call is usually a good idea for any orders placed after 12pm or if you need a Saturday delivery. We try to get every order placed before 2pm shipped out that same day, but not all items we sell are stocked in our warehouse at all times.
Orders delayed by weather, or any natural disaster that is out of our control, will not be eligible for a shipping fee refund. The carriers will not refund us and therefore we can't refund the shipping fees under these circumstances.
Shipments which arrive by common carrier are to be unloaded by the receiver. (Regarding pool shipments: It is possible to remove the banding or securing measures from the shipment and unload the components one at a time.)
Upon receipt of any shipment it is the customers responsibility to immediately inspect the product and all applicable carton contents and immediately notify us of any product or carton component shortages or damages. If no notification is made or necessary, it is understood that the shipment was delivered in a whole, complete, acceptable, and usable condition as ordered.
Items shipped within the USA that are too large or too heavy for UPS must be delivered via freight truck. All freight deliveries are scheduled for residential curbside delivery and someone must be there to inspect and receive the delivery. We can provide lift gate service at an additional charge; however we will not pay for, be responsible for or reimburse for any additional residential delivery fees in which a truck with a lift gate is or has been requested by the receiver. If the carrier has to store your delivery because you missed an appointment or there is any delivery delay caused by the consumer, there will be storage fees from the carrier that will need to be paid before the delivery can be made. Any redelivery fee or change of address fee will be the responsibility of the consumer. If these are not paid and the shipment has to be returned, the associated fees will be deducted from the refund of the product. The original shipping paid by the consumer will not be refunded as that cost has already been incurred. Transit times may vary for areas deemed remote by the carrier as these areas are only delivered to periodically. Freight shipments typically ship the next business day after the order is placed, due to the time needed to package and palletize the shipment and to schedule a carrier for pick up.
Freight shipments require inspection and signature upon delivery. Any damaged shipments must be refused.
Products Damaged in Transit
While it's unfortunate, products are damaged by the delivery carrier from time to time. You must inspect the item(s) by opening the pallet and boxes to check for concealed freight damage. It is highly recommended that you remove the wrapping and/or box and inspect the product for hidden damage as well. Please clearly notate on the carrier’s paperwork that the item was damaged when it arrived, refuse the shipment and supply us with a copy of that paperwork. If the carrier will not let you remove the box, then please clearly write on the freight bill "Subject to Inspection for Damage". Please contact us so we can get you a replacement or find a solution for the damage to be repaired.
If concealed damage is later discovered, please notify the carrier as quickly as possible (within 24 hours) and follow up with them via written notice. Hold the container and product for inspection in as close to the same condition as it was when delivered. Once you have signed for the product and accepted delivery, the carrier and ProPools are no longer responsible and the product is yours. Your signature is acknowledgement that your order is free of damage if not noted otherwise on the freight bill.
"Free shipping" does not imply in any way that we are not charged for shipping products. The shipping rate we are charged by the carrier is adjusted into the sale price of the product. In the event that an item with “free shipping” is returned to ProPools for a refund, we reserve the right to deduct the shipping fees we incurred and were adjusted in to the sale price of the item from the refund issued for the returned goods.
"Free shipping" applies only to the particular item, kit or kits as specified. Adding additional items to your order may or may not incur additional shipping charges. "Free shipping" on above ground pools applies only to the above ground pool packages such as the standard, savings or premier package pools, where applicable.
"Free shipping" applies to the continental United States ONLY. Other areas, such as Hawaii, Alaska, Florida Keys or outside of the U.S., will require additional shipping fees. Taxes and duties for shipments outside the U.S. are the responsibility of the customer.
Typically, special orders take two to three weeks for delivery. Every item / order is different, so lead times can vary. If your product has to be special ordered, we will notify you of the fact via email. Special order items most of the time are non-returnable. In some instances, special order items may be returned to the manufacture but restocking fees and shipping charges will be incurred.
On occasion items may be backordered because it is temporarily out of stock with the supplier. Every item / order is different, so backorder times can vary. If your order has been backordered we will notify you of the fact via email. If you do not wish to wait for your backordered item, contact us immediately to cancel or change your order.
