Shipping

YOU MUST INSPECT THE SHIPMENT BEFORE YOU SIGN FOR THE DELIVERY!

Compare the items shipped with the Packing List included with your shipment and verify that your order has been received.

If there is an overage or shortage of items, file an claim with sales@bluepacificsolar.com and or contact your assigned Solar Consultant within 24 hours of receipt. Do not wait until you start your job to verify the contents of your order.

INSPECT THE PACKAGING FIRST (Pallet or Box) - Look for the following: Torn or punctured cardboard or stretch wrap, Broken or crushed corners, Broken pallet, Module stack askew or shifted on pallet, Missing the “Do Not Stack” pyramid on module pallet. Before signing for freight or other packages, it is important that you or whomever is receiving the shipment, inspect package(s) closely and note any box damage including scuffs, dents, tears, punctures or creases on the delivery receipt.

READ THIS PLEASE! Damage caused by shipping or mishandling: If there is anything unusual with the package, take pictures of the outside then inspect the contents. The Customer has the right to open packages to inspect the contents to see if there is shipping damage. If the driver is unwilling to wait while the Customer inspects all their items, the Customer may mark in the delivery receiptConcealed Damage Possible”. In case of serious obvious damage, the Customer must refuse the package (Delivery) and contact your Blue Pacific Solar Consultant immediately.

solar tech notes

NOTE: If you have damaged or missing items, in addition to taking pictures, please write on the receiver in big words “Broken _______ or Missing ______”. The receiver is part of the legal document we need to make a freight claim. If you do not writing anything on the receiver, you are in effect saying you received the product in good condition. That means you accepted ownership of the product and received it in good condition.

Visually evident damage caused by shipping or mishandling is to be reported to the freight carrier within 24 hours. Shipping damage is the responsibility of the freight carrier, not Blue Pacific Solar, and should always be duly noted with the freight carrier prior to accepting and signing for the product.

Curbside Delivery

We try and accommodate most job specific applications and locations, but shipping is generally considered to be curbside and tailgate unless otherwise specified. What does that mean? If you have an order that goes to a site that is, for example, a mile back from the main highway, the driver is not responsible to risk damage to the truck or operator safety. We expect you to meet the driver and take the package or make your job specific arrangements to get the materials from the tailgate of the delivery truck at the street side curb to its final resting place. If your shipment a non-freight delivery and is going to your residence or business, yes, the driver will take it to your door or front desk.

[top]

Freight service are required for many items over 80 lbs., solar panels that have to be palletized or items that are longer than 8' such as rails and racking. The freight prices that you see that are standard include the loading of the shipment at origin, and the transport to a local commercial dock or nearby freight terminal. Items that cannot be shipped by standard carriers because they are too heavy or require special handling are shipped via a specialized freight carrier in many cases. The four common freight trucking companies we use are UPS, FedEx, Conway and YRC trucking but that is subject to daily rate quotes we receive.

In most cases, the driver will require assistance in unloading the kit to the curbside and are not required to move the product past that point.

solar freight

Truck freight companies do NOT require their drivers to unload shipments. When a order has to ship by freight trucking shipping is defined as point of origin dock to the commercial dock you specify or the closest freight terminal. If you would like the freight shipment delivered to your residence, a additional "Residential and Lift Gate" special handling fee will apply. NOTE; RESIDENTIAL AND LIFT GATE FEES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN BASE SHIPPING COSTS. UNLESS SPECIFIED AT THE TIME OF ORDER. If the driver (freight company) is asked to deliver to a residence, and unloads the merchandise at your home, at the curb. The shipping carrier will call and schedule delivery, at which time, you may request a Residential and Lift Gate (provided the weight and dimensions of the product fits the criteria for lift gate service) and arrange payment with the carrier for that service. If you do not want or need to pay for this heavy freight additional delivery fee, you can avoid it by picking up your order at the closest freight company terminal. In that case, you will need a pickup truck and a copy of the bill of laden, drive to the terminal and the freight company will load your order into the bed of your truck with their forklift. The most common pallet size we use is 65" X 44" (Height depends on Product).

Our standard freight shipping normally includes only the loading of the shipment at origin, and the transport to a local commercial dock or nearby freight terminal. Freight shipping, unless specified, does not include: residential, lift gate service, inside delivery, delivery to any floors, or assembly. If an item that you order ships via freight, our shipping partner will call schedule a delivery window during weekday business hours or advise you your order is available at the local terminal for pickup.

[top]


International Shipping

Unfortunately due to the added expense of processing international shipments, Blue Pacific Solar will only ship to your export terminal in the United States. At that point you would be responsible for exporting the shipment.

[top]


Delivery times / Material Substitution

Most items will ship within 3 - 5 business days after the funds clear. Checks, eCheck and paper checks, will be held until the funds clear the bank which can take 10 business days.) International shipments may be delayed longer to wait for authorization of additional shipping charges or customs.

Custom assembled solar kits, thermal or wind turbines usually ship within 5 - 7 business days after final approval. That gives us time to confirm specifics of the order, assemble the products and arrange ground shipment.

Material Substitution - Sales are subject to manufacture availability. Solar panel manufactures occasionally will sell out their inventory of (for example), solar panels for large jobs. If this happens, we reserve the right to substitute a product of equal quality and performance or better with your prior knowledge and permission.

If that material substitution is necessary. we will notify you prior to shipping your order and give you the options to either accept or decline the material substitution. If you decline the material substitution, your charge will be reversed in full at that time at no risk to you. If you accept, the order will move forward as per our normal policy. Selling out an item can happen on all items, but it is more likely to happen with solar panels.

We try hard to ship in the times quoted (and faster if possible), but sometimes items are delayed beyond the stated windows. If an item is going to take longer than the original estimate, we will inform you as soon as possible to let you know what the new estimated shipping date is.
