Sampson Nursery Terms of Service
Prices – All prices are wholesale and F.O.B. Sampson Nursery. To qualify for wholesale prices, a customer should be a licensed nursery, garden center or landscaper. If purchasing from us for the first time, please provide us with a sales tax exemption number.
Terms – Cash, unless credit arrangements have been made before shipment. We also accept Mastercard and Visa. Credit applications are available by phone or fax. Any new customers wanting to establish a credit account are asked to pay for the first two deliveries C.O.D. as an act of good faith. Established accounts are due thirty days from the date of invoice. Past due accounts are subject to service charge of 1.5% per month. All delinquent accounts are pursued aggressively with the customer responsible for all costs of collection and any legal fees incurred. We reserve the right to cancel credit at any time.
Claims – All claims must be made within 5 days of receipt of plants. We grow quality plants and guarantee that our plants are true to name and healthy when loaded; however, we can not be responsible for plants after leaving our nursery. We will gladly correct any mistake made by us, but in no case will our liability exceed the purchase price. Any shortages or breakage of plants must be noted by our truck driver on the return copy of invoice.
Booked Orders – When an order is taken our inventory records usually allow us to give an accurate count on plant availability. The customer will then receive a confirmation based upon availability at the time the order was placed. We will try to have your order available on the shipping date agreed upon but cannot guarantee an order without a 25% deposit. Once the deposit is received, we will pull your order, notify you of any shortages and hold until the shipping date. the deposit is to cover our costs and will be forfeited if the order is cancelled or not shipped by the date agreed upon. We accept all orders subject to crop conditions and that they may be void should any conditions beyond our responsible control be incurred.
Delivery – Plant delivery is available on our 24′ shelved box trucks or 48′ tractor trailer. We can usually combine loads with other customers if given adequate time to help reduce freight charges on less than full trucks.
