When an order is placed by shipper for a vehicle, and due to no disability,
fault or negligence on the part of the carrier the vehicle is not used,
cancellation of the order must be made before the vehicle is dispatched for
pick-up in compliance with such order. If cancellation is not made with at
least 24 hours advanced notice of the scheduled pick up or delivery time, the
normal rate for the services requested will be assessed.
TCI does not hold out to provide a collect on delivery service. TCI’s
drivers are not authorized to accept bills of lading which require the
consignee to pay the driver in cash or by check for the goods transported as
a precondition of delivery. If a collect on delivery shipment is inadvertently
accepted and delivered without obtaining payment or if payment is stopped
on uncertified funds, shipper’s sole recourse shall be to the consignee.
TCI will collect charges from actual consignee ONLY when request is in writing
by customer and when charges are paid by cashier’s check or money order. A fee
for collection COD amounts will be charged at the rate of $50.00 per check collected.
Whenever any additional license or permits are required, such as but not
limited to, foreign commerce or customs fees, the charges for same shall be
added to the freight invoice.
Shipments moving under U.S. Customs Bond will be subject to a charge of
$100.00 for handling each shipment.
