Returns
Small Package
You may return unused items for a refund (less original shipping charges and at your expense) within 30 days of receipt date. In addition, there is a 15% restocking fee. Include a copy of the receipt and highlight the items you are returning. Be sure to pack the items in original packaging well to avoid damage. You do not need to contact us in advance.

The most common reason for a return is client ordering the wrong size of valve/fitting. Treat this as two independent transactions. Place a new order for correct size and we will ship and charge your card. Return wrong items and we will credit the original card (less fees noted above.)

Large Equipment (shipped via LTL)
You may return unused items for a refund (less original shipping charges and at your expense) within 30 days of receipt date. In addition, there is a 20% restocking fee. You must contact us to obtain authorization before returning an item. Items must be crated and packed in original packaging. Any damage incurred in shipping to us will negate all or part of the refund. You are solely responsible to file damage claims incurred during transit to St. Patrick's.

Shortages
All shortages must be reported within 2 business days of receipt of merchandise.

Trucking shipments. Damages must be noted on bill of lading.

Shipping Charges--All orders are shipped prepaid.

UPS---small package. Credit card is charged when we package the order and ship. We do not give shipping quotes for small package unless you will pay by check or money wire.

LTL---large equipment. Place your order. We will respond with freight quote and delivery options. You must authorize the freight charges before we process the order. Your credit card is not charged until you authorize freight.

Trucking

St. Pat's uses 1/2" Plywood crates for equipment shipped via UPS-Freight. We have a very low incidence of damage.

  • Residential costs ~$96 more than Commercial. You can arrange to receive the goods at the nearest Freight Terminal and save this fee.
  • To be Commercial, the address must not be in a residential neighborhood.
  • If the carrier attempts delivery during normal business hours and you are not there, there is a redelivery fee of ~$60.
  • If you want a notification call before delivery, that is an additional ~$41 fee. This applies to both commercial and residential deliveries.
  • A lift gate costs an additional ~$125. It is the responsibility of the receiver (i.e., you) to get the pallet(s) off the back of the truck. But you do have time to break down crates to both inspect and unload items.
  • It is the responsibility of the receiver to note any damage before signing the release. Failure to do so releases the carrier of responsibility for damage. St. Pat's is released of responsibility by the carrier when the pallets leave our dock. If there is any damage, simply note it on the paperwork and we will assist in filing the claim. We have a very low incidence of damage. However, please be prudent and remove the top or a side off each crate and inspect before signing the release.

Trucking to Canada and Mexico
We have reasonable freight service to points in Canada. Mexico shipments typically ship to customs broker at entry points.
You are responsible to clear customs---i.e., contact a broker for Canada or Mexico. Alternatively, UPS Logistics can provide this service for Canada only. This is a separate division of UPS-Freight and St. Pat's is not involved (other than providing the commercial invoice). You will need to send our commercial invoice to the broker at UPS-Freight, or whomever you choose.

Tracking Numbers

If you do not receive this email, check your spam filters (Held Messages)---it will be there. When you receive a tracking number, it means your order has arrived at the UPS center in San Antonio. The email you receive shortly after placing an order is simply an acknowledgment that we have received your order. We do not provide tracking numbers for UPS orders placed over the phone.
