Terms and Conditions


The prices on this web site supersede all previous prices and may change without notice. All prices are Net and are subject to the following terms:

SHIPPING CHARGES: All shipments are EXWORKS FACTORY. Purchaser is therefore responsible for both shipping charges and damage to goods in transit. Note that freight charges are based on weight AND volume. Assembled items take up a greater shipping volume and are typically charged at a higher freight rate than items shipped flat. Purchaser must specify a freight carrier (if other than UPS) at time the order is placed. DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha will prepay UPS shipments and the cost of freight will be added to each invoice unless otherwise specified. NOTE: Request to ship UPS 1st, 2nd, or 3rd day is a method of shipment and does not imply any expediting of order processing by DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha. For non-UPS shipments, the order will be shipped freight collect or third party billing at purchaser's option. Purchaser is responsible for and agrees to pay (1) charges disallowed or billed back to DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha by third parties when purchaser has specified third party billing and (2) charges billed to Desco for corrections made by the carrier including address corrections. Some carriers may not be available to be used by DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha. Purchaser will be notified if an alternate carrier is required.

INSURING YOUR SHIPMENT: You are responsible for your shipment once it leaves the F.O.B. point. We recommend that you insure all shipments, especially those with fragile items such as rigid mats (Micastat), liquids (cleaners, floor care, and paint products), and electronic equipment. The cost to insure a UPS shipment is minimal. Call or eMail Customer Service for more information. The buyer is responsible for uninsured lost or damaged shipments.

PAYMENT TERMS: Payments must be made by Telegraphic Transfer (TT) Wire Transfer to our bank in Japan in USD. For orders under $500 USD, Desco Asia will add a $50 handling charge to the invoice.

SHORT SHIPMENT & PRICING CLAIMS: All claims pertaining to invoices (including short shipments, pricing discrepancies, freight charges, etc.) must be made in writing within 45 days of the invoice date. Claims must include copy of original PO, PO number, invoice number, and invoice date. All claims must be approved by Desco Industries.

DAMAGE CLAIMS: DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha will not issue credit, or take responsibility for merchandise lost or damaged by the carrier, unless insurance is requested at the time of order. Such insurance is the responsibility of purchaser and will be included with freight cost on the invoice. Purchaser holds title to the goods once DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha has delivered them to the carrier, and is therefore responsible for settling all damage or loss claims with carriers. DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha will assist purchaser in any reasonable manner to establish damage claims with common carriers.

EXPEDITED ORDERS: DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha does not offer any expedited or rush services on orders. All purchase orders are processed in the order they are received.

FORCE MAJEURE: DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha shall not be liable for any delay in delivery or for non-delivery, in whole or in part, caused by the occurrence of any event beyond the reasonable control of DESCO JAPAN Kabushiki Kaisha.

BTO: (Built-To-Order) items are available on a per-order basis only. Contact Customer Service to check before ordering any BTO item. Some inventory may be in stock. Actual quantity shipped and invoiced may be +/- 10%. Build-to-Order Items are covered by Limited Warranty for defects in material and labor only, and are not returnable.

NORMAL DELIVERY: Most orders ship from the factory within one week. An email confirmation will be sent to you with shipment dates, once your order has been processed. To obtain accurate inventory levels we suggest checking the web site for current information. 

PARTIAL SHIPMENTS: Partial shipments will be made unless the order specifies that the order is to ship complete.

CREDIT HOLD: New distributor orders will not be accepted or entered into the queue if any invoices are past due.

POLICY STATEMENT: Desco Asia's commitment and strategy is to ensure that a committed distributor partner is fully involved with any customer who receives technical demonstrations or products as samples.
