Available to Ship Notification
Once a buyer’s payment has been successfully processed, the buyer will receive an email with the seller’s contact information and equipment address. Unless specified in the offer, the buyer is responsible for paying for and arranging the shipping and insurance.
All items purchased must be SCHEDULED for pick up within five (5) business days from receipt of payment, unless given specific written permission by the seller and UniteCraft to extend that time. If the buyer has not made arrangements to pick up the item in that time frame, the buyer will be subject to additional storage charges that must be paid before the buyer picks up the purchased items.
Inspection and Shipping
If the offer requires the buyer to pick up the equipment (most common), UniteCraft customer support will contact the buyer and the seller to arrange an inspection date and pickup.
UniteCraft will email the buyer an Inspection & Release Form. The buyer sends back the form confirming inspection and release from the seller.
If the seller is shipping your purchase, the shipping delivery receipt and Release Form sent to the buyer via email will finalize the sale.
