TERMS OF SALE
Due to changes in market conditions, manufacturers’ increased costs associated with sourcing materials and increased freight costs for manufacturing material and product transportation, as well as changes in import regulations, duty and associated brokerage fees, Kevalin Audio has adjusted its terms of sale to provide the most competitive pricing and quickest delivery times. These terms of sale are part of the purchase contract and a purchaser is deemed to have accepted and agreed to them.
While Kevalin Audio can sell Allnic and Torus Power products worldwide with a few exceptions, Kevalin Audio Waversa sales are restricted solely to North America. Outside of special consideration sanctioned by Waversa Systems Corporation, Waversa products are sold at Waversa’s established retail pricing and all products are shipped from their US or Canadian dealers. However, quality trade-ins are welcomed and encouraged for all products Kevalin Audio offers.
All import duty and brokerage fees for products imported INTO the USA are covered by Kevalin Audio. For products sold by Kevalin Audio into countries other than the USA (not possible for Waversa Systems products), all associated brokerage, duty, taxes (VAT, GST, etc.) are the responsibility of the purchaser. Please note, for exports to Europe - VAT is now assessed to the shipper and will be added to the bill of sale.
To help mitigate increased costs of transportation, products may be drop-shipped from the factory or from locations outside the United States from our distributor or Canadian dealers. While we do our best to streamline the import process, paperwork may be misplaced during transportation and a delay in customs clearance may happen. If there is a customs clearance delay, please call Kevalin Audio immediately. A simple phone call from Kevalin Audio often clears the item within 6-24 hours.
If a customer prefers to receive a product not held in stock in the USA by Kevalin Audio but direct from Kevalin Audio’s USA store, there will be a 2 (two) week additional lead time and significant additional shipping charges.
Through direct consultation and awareness of potentially applicable unique opportunities, we can advise you on the most effective solution for your budget and preferred schedule. Please note, however, that Kevalin Audio is not Amazon: acquisition is almost never immediate. We believe in a smart investment for long term enjoyment.
For purchases under $2500 USD, Kevalin Audio accepts credit cards through Square. Square reserves the right to deny any transaction. In such a circumstance, payment then will be by bank wire or other mutually agreed form of payment. All purchases over $2500 will be by BANK WIRE TRANSFER only.
