2. Damage Replacement Guaranty: For all damaged merchandise excluding freight that has its own insurance policy (see delivery services) we offer free of charge tile replacement including free shipping. IMPORTANT: Large shipments delivered on pallets require the buyer to request the carrier to document any damage on the delivery receipt. The carrier will provide instructions how the claim will be handled. For regular package ground deliveries we will make arrangements directly with you to replace damaged items once you provided a single image of damaged item/items and initiated damage claim with the carrier. Pending availability, we will ship the replacement via ground service within 10 business days. Note: - While receiving large palatalized orders pointing out the damage to the carrier upon delivery is a key condition to quality for the damage insurance policy. - Damaged Replacement Policy covers damaged occurring during transpiration only. Handling It is our policy to ship stock Mexican tiles within 10 business days from receiving the payment or 10 days from receiving custom made items from the producers.
3. The handling time is needed for professional packing and consolidation services including moving products from our warehouse to the Mexican carrier terminal delivering consolidated cargo to the US border.
4. Custom painted ceramics: add 14 business day tile production time to handling.
5. Shipping: once a week from Mexico to the US Laredo, Tx and from Laredo, Tx to the destination by USPS (US Postal Service), UPS, FedEx, DHL. It takes ABOUT 4 weeks to deliver from Mexico to the US address. The time frame depends on whether the shipment is selected by the US customs for physical inspection what might significantly prolong the delivery time.

7. We will not begin investigation of the delivery status until the time frame specified on the tile detail page and "handling" has been exhausted. Do not request delivery status updates until then.
8. The tracking number sent by the carrier directly to the buyer payment email address is for the delivery from Mexico/US border to the destination only. The tracking might be sent by the carrier to buyer prior the products leaving Mexico for the US. Once items are delivered from central Mexico to the USA border and clear customs the tracking becomes active (don't call the carrier about whereabouts of your shipment until the tracking number shows that your item was already dropped off at the carrier Texas terminal). Large volume tile delivery as freight to the US and Canada: Upon crating and palatalizing, products are shipped from our warehouse in central Mexico to Nuevo Laredo in state of Tamaulipas. Then upon US customs clearance they are moved through the border to Laredo, Texas and dropped at the US based carrier terminal for further delivery. Default residential delivery option is available for the US destinations only, delivery in Canada is to the local cargo terminal only.

The tracking number (pro number) is available as soon as the tile cargo crosses Mexican/US border, there is no guaranteed delivery date available for standard commercial shipping. There is no tracking available while the cargo is on its way within Mexico. Commercial cargo carriers include standard damage/lost cargo insurance that doesn't necessarily cover the entire value of transported goods.

In case of damage occurring during the transportation and to qualify for the refund, damaged goods must be reported to the driver delivering the cargo or terminal employees handing over the cargo to the buyer. We will refund full amount of the carrier's refund upon receiving it from the carrier.
