Additional charges may apply if your order requires delivery accessorial services such as lift gate; call before delivery or inside delivery. To avoid any “unexpected additional charges” it is important you check off or write down any special instructions or shipping requirements you have during submission of your order in the shipping section.
If for some reason we are billed for any “unexpected additional charges” we reserve the right to charge the credit card provided for that particular order any amount we receive from the shipping company plus an extra 10% service charge.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES
Our shipping department seeks the most economical shipping rates available; however, international shipments require the assistance of freight forwarders. West Coast Imports, Inc. will assist and coordinate with freight forwarders, but all arrangements will be the responsibility of the individual customer.

We strongly advise that you locate a freight forwarder familiar with your country’s import policies. This facilitates the international shipment and ensures a full understanding of what to expect with shipping and receiving. Simply provide the freight forwarder’s full business information (contact person’s name, address and phone number) and we will fully cooperate with them.
*Please Note: West Coast Imports, Inc. does not make any freight forwarder recommendations.

OUT OF STOCK
West Coast Imports, Inc. thrives in keeping adequate quantities of every item in stock and updates the website regularly. However, due to unpredictable order patterns we may run out of some items from time to time. The salesperson may notify you of any backorders and give you the option to substitute items (in which case customers must submit a written request of changes before the processing the order).
In cases where no substitution is available and you have already paid for the order in full, you have two options: (a) inform your sales representative and ask for credit [in the amount of the backorders] with West Coast Imports, Inc., which will be credited toward your next order, (b) ask your sales representative for full reimbursement of the amount of the backorders. All backorders are deleted in our system and will not be shipped at a later date. You should submit a new order for those items if they become available.
Customers, who wish to cancel their entire order after the order processing has begun, will be charged a 20% restocking fee. If customers wish to cancel only a few items (and order processing has begun), they will not incur extra penalty fees. However, partially cancelled orders will experience a sales order processing delay.
If you have submitted your order but forgot to add or wish to substitute or even remove items, you may do so by contacting your salesperson immediately. If you wish to include more items to your existing order you will need to place an additional order.
