Your credit card will be billed at the time your order enters the shipping
process in our warehouse or is sent to a vendor for factory-direct shipment.
Custom-made items that require production time may be billed well in advance of
delivery. Please do not be concerned as this is normal for such items.
In the unusual event that we have not been notified of a backorder prior to
submitting an order to a vendor for factory-direct shipment, you may be billed
ahead of shipment.
Homestead Carts/homesteadcarts.com will not be responsible for delays in
processing your order if the credit card billing and shipping information that
you provide does not match the information on file with your credit card company.
For your own security, most credit card companies maintain an "alternate
address file" of authorized shipping addresses for their cardholders. To
advise your credit card company of an authorized shipping address, please phone
the number on the back of your credit card and they will update your
"alternate address file" promptly.
When will my Homestead cart arrive?
You should expect to receive delivery within 5-10 business days in the 48
contiguous states unless otherwise noted.
What do I do when the shipment arrives?
the larger Homestead carts, and other items that ship by freight, the purchaser
is responsible for getting the items off of the delivery truck. We recommend you
have at least 2-4 people to help you remove your items. The driver is not
responsible for removing the packages. Also, some freight trucks are not able to
deliver up your driveway. You are then responsible to remove the items and
transport them by other means, carry them or by pick-up truck, to your house. If
you have questions please contact us.
Do not refuse delivery for minor damage. If a package is damaged, check the
contents for damage before refusing delivery. If damage appears to be minor, and
only a few items need to be replaced, we recommend accepting the shipment (or at
least any undamaged packages) after making note of damages on delivery receipt.
Doing this will speed up the replacement process in many cases because parts can
be shipped sooner and faster delivery methods can be used.
Inventory the shipment. Check the number of boxes received against the number
shown on the driver's delivery sheet. If there is a shortage, write the number of
missing boxes on your copy and the driver's copy of the receipt, and have the
driver sign both copies.
If there is any problem with your shipment please contact us using the online
help desk - we will quickly make any arrangements needed to fix any problems.
How do I cancel my order?
To cancel your order,
contact us. Include your order number, name,
billing address, and items ordered. We'll acknowledge your ticket upon receipt
and let you know as soon as possible if we were successful in canceling an order
that has not yet entered our shipping department or is on backorder.
Orders that are already in the shipping system cannot usually be canceled
although we will make every attempt to do so at your request. The cancellation
process is costly to us, so once an order has been sent to our shipping
department, or transmitted to a vendor for shipment, there will be a cancellation
fee of 5% of your order total if we are able to cancel your order.
