Shipping & Packaging
Free shipping -- no shipping, handling, or packaging fees will be charged on shipments consisting of at least $99 in new radio gear that are shipping to physical addresses located in any of the contiguous 48 states and can be automatically verified with your bank through the AVS (Address Verification System) Program. Orders containing both in-stock and out of stock items will not ship until all items are in-stock, unless you specifically request shipping the in-stock items separately, which incur additional shipping charges. Free shipping is only available on shipments of $99 or more. Upgraded freight charges do not qualify for free freight credit. All orders are shipped FOB our dock and all claims for damaged shipments are subject to the carrier's rules for claim processing. Claims for "Package did not arrive" or similar must be made within 14 days of the date that tracking shows the item delivered. The claims process can take 1 - 6 months depending on the carrier. Free freight includes freight and insurance, but does not include dimensional weight charges or optional services such as Adult Signature Required ($4.75). On high value packages, we suggest Adult Signature Required. Some large packages and discounted items are excluded from free shipping, as noted in their description.
In order to keep our prices low, multiple orders shipped to the same address may be combined into a single shipment by our shipping department but this may not result in reduced shipping and handling fees.
Shipping charges for orders that do not qualify for free freight start at $9.95. If you prefer a particular carrier, you will need to select the Expedited Surface shipping method, and include a note stating which carrier you would like in the order. All orders are shipped FOB Our Dock and all claims for damaged shipments are subject to the carrier's rules for claim processing. The claims process can take 1 - 6 months depending on the carrier. Claims for misshipped or missing items must be made within 14 days of your receipt of the package or 30 days from the date of shipment, whichever comes first. Claims for "Package did not arrive" or similar must be made within 14 days of the date that tracking shows the item delivered.
Orders containing both in-stock and out of stock items will not ship until all items are in-stock, unless you specifically request shipping the in-stock items separately, which incur additional shipping charges. Free shipping is only available on shipments of $99 or more.
Shipping outside the United States
Orders that are shipping outside the 50 US states will be shipped with a commercial invoice showing the exact amount you paid for the product. We cannot show a reduced value on the commercial invoice. Depending on your country, before your package arrives, you may have to pay duties, taxes, and brokerage fees. Some countries require products be certified by CE or some other certifying organization. Most of the amateur radio transceivers we sell do NOT have the CE mark which is required in most European countries and some countries, like Australia, outside the EU. It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure the product they are ordering is compliant with the import regulations of their country. If your shipment is refused by customs and returned to us for any reason, we will subtract the cost of shipping from your refund. If your package is not returned to us by customs, we will not be able to refund any amount.
The postal service is our least expensive and least reliable method of shipping internationally. Packages often take 4 to 6 weeks to arrive, but sometimes even longer. Many countries do not allow packages to be tracked. We will not start a claim for a package lost in the postal system until it has been more than 60 days since we shipped the package and more than 30 days since its last tracking scan. We recommend FedEx, UPS or DHL international shipments.
Open Box Products
Open Box merchandise are products that have been purchased and delivered to other customers, and then returned to GigaParts. Open Box products are typically sold under cost. GigaParts tests Open Box products for basic functionality only. Due to the varying quality of products returned to GigaParts, GigaParts makes every attempt to supply the original accessories for Open Box products. However, regardless of what the product description says, GigaParts only guarantees that you will receive the product itself, accessories may or may not be included. Bear in mind that your open box product may not contain microphones, cables, adaptors, manuals, CDs, drivers, fans, etc. Additionally, the product may exhibit cosmetic imperfections as a result of its having been previously opened. GigaParts will not send you any missing accessory, even if the accessory is required in order to properly make use of all the product's advertised functions. While GigaParts does not like to discourage sales, please purchase open box products only if you know how to deal with potential missing accessories.
