Sunbelt’s liability for breach of warranty shall arise only upon return of defective goods at Buyer’s expense after notice to Sunbelt of the claimed breach, and shall be limited to furnishing a like quantity of such goods free from such defects or at Sunbelt’s option to refunding the purchase price, providing; however, that Sunbelt will not accept receipt of equipment returned unless Buyer has previously afforded Sunbelt’s personnel a reasonable opportunity to inspect and repair equipment at Buyer’s facility or such other location as is mutually agreeable. Notice to Sunbelt of claimed defects must be made within 90 days of receipt of equipment and 10 days after receipt of other goods. Sunbelt shall never be liable for any consequential damages.
CLAIMS: If the Buyer claims that the material received is not as ordered, he must notify Seller within ten (10) days of receipt of shipment. If such claim that material furnished is not as ordered is sustained to the satisfaction of both parties, the Seller shall repair, replace, credit or complete the order within the limitation of "QUANTITIES".

Seller will not allow claims for defective goods on those parts further processed by the Buyer and resulting in change of either dimensions or characteristics from parts as ordered.
TOLERANCES: Unless otherwise specified, all tolerances and dimensions will be to standard of Seller.
SHIPMENT: In ordering, Buyer should explicitly state the method of shipment preferred and in the absence of such shipping directions, the Seller will use his discretion in employing the method of shipment for the material ordered.
