Signatures are required on all packages, unless the buyer explicitly requests or waives this option. We do not ship USPS for any domestic shipments, only Fedex. International shipments may use USPS, but all risk and cost are to the buyer. We take no responsibility for lost international packages once the package has been handed off to the shipping company. We will provide a receipt to confirm the package has been dropped off to the shipped if desired. This applies on trade items or consignments send to TAET Co. We do not take possession of shipments unless we physically sign for any package sent to us. TAET Co. cannot be responsible for lost or damaged packages if the signature is waived. We will not be financially responsible for packages that are lost or damaged by the carrier. Insurance on packages shall be at the option of the buyer. After the package is taken by the carrier and confirmed by our physical receipt and electronic tracking we relinquish any liability. For all trades, we consider your trade the same as cash payment. When we receive your trade and inspect that it is as described, then we will consider your payment complete and ship your knife or item.
TAET Co. accepts returns provided that we are notified within 24hrs of your receipt of the item, if the item is returned in the same condition in which it was sent. If there is an error with your order and TAETCO is at fault, then all fees are waved. We sell expensive items. We are not here for customers to “buy and try” or we would lose our clients . Insured shipping of high value items is expensive. A restocking fee of 20% will be deducted from the refunded amount of knife purchase after deducting shipping charges. For Trades, the return will also be subject to a 20% restocking fee to be paid in cash on the trade value and reimbursement of TAETCO’s shipping costs in the trade. Once the item is received back to TAETCO, along with payment for shipping and restocking, you will be refunded in the form of your item being shipped back to you, at your expense. For example, We have an even value trade for a $1000 item, where the customer sends TAETCO his knife/item and TAETCO sends the customer the knife/item he wished to acquire from TAETCO. The customer wishes to trade back as he has had a change of heart and no longer wants the item. In this case the customer will be responsible for a restocking fee of $200 and covering both the initial shipping costs for TAETCO to complete the trade and the second shipping cost for TAETCO to undo the trade, at the customer’s request. All items are sold AS-IS..
