After a purchase has been placed it is considered work in progress and therefore cannot be cancelled, unless 1.) No purchase order has been
issued to our suppliers 2.) We have not started processing the order. If we have started manufacturing the product then it cannot be cancelled.
A Late Charge of 1.5% per month (18% APR) will be added to all accounts over 30 days old. In the event of default of payment on any
amount due, customer agrees to pay any expenses incurred by Tidewater Lumber in collection of the money due, including charges by
collection agencies, attorney fees and costs.
All items are quoted RANDOM LENGTH. We will strive to produce requested lengths, but inventory changes daily. If the lengths requested
are not available we will process the order w/ the next available length. We will notify you if it is more than 2’ per piece.
Tidewater will ship as close to the required amount as possible. However, over / under runs are standard trade practice. Tidewater will ship
+/- 10% at the customer’s expense. If the amount exceeds 10% the customer will be notified before shipment. Orders will be billed for exact
quantity shipped. If Tidewater under ships an order and there is an error on our behalf, we will fill the order as soon as possible without set-
up fees charged to the customer.
These prices are base prices, and subject to change without notice, depending on our workload and the complexity.

or basements. In the rare case of damaged product, it is imperative that any irregularities are noted on the Bill of Lading. See claims section.
