Please note that the orders will ship standard WITHOUT liftgate and via Common Carrier. The truck freight companies do not require their drivers to unload shipments. If you do not have an elevated loading dock or forklift to unload your items from the truck, you will need a liftgate. This service is MANDATORY for residential deliveries.

Once the order is shipped, the order cannot be cancelled. You will need to request a Return Authorization from our RMA specialist to return the product and get the order refunded. Please note that a 20% restocking fee and any incurred shipping charge will be deducted from your refund. And the returned product must be in original box and condition and unused. Otherwise, Toolots will have to post additional charge for the damage. See Warranty and Return Policy for detail.


Once the order is shipped, you can check the tracking information on the carrier’s website. Sometimes, the tracking information does not show the order is shipped. But as long as the order has the tracking number, you can assume the carrier has the order and it is on the way. And try checking the tracking information 24 hours later for an update.
Each carrier operates differently. But many carriers run shipments to certain locations only on specified days and times. This is common for remote areas. In cases like this, orders may be held at a hub or terminal until there is enough volume to run a route to that location or area.

For LTL orders, you can request a call before delivery or set an appointment. We typically add this free of charge to all orders. However, to ensure this is added, please notate it in your online order or specify it to Toolots customer service representative. These appointments are usually set for a 4-hour window from Monday-Friday 7 am-4 pm.
Please note, make sure to include accurate contact information for your order, especially for LTL shipments. The customer is responsible for any and all fees incurred from deliveries or missed deliveries including, but not limited to, redelivery fees, storage fees, etc. We will attempt to hold the order at a carrier terminal for up to 3 days before returning the order to Toolots. Any fees incurred will be assessed to the customer during re-delivery or the refund process. And please be notified that we cannot ship to a different destination than the one provided when the order is placed to prevent fraud.
When the shipment arrives, please check for any damage or missing items right away - we only have 2 days to file a claim. If the damage is unacceptable, please refuse the delivery and ask the carrier to send the shipment back. If the damage is acceptable, please notate any problems on the delivery receipt when applicable. And keep a copy of the delivery receipt for you records. If the problem is not notated on the delivery receipt, we cannot guarantee any compensation for damaged or missing items. By signing the delivery receipt, the signer is stating that they have received the shipment in acceptable condition. If you find out there are missing items or the product is damaged after you receive the shipment, you must report damage or missing items to Toolots in 5 business days after receiving. In all cases, please take a picture or video showing the damage and send to Toolots RMA specialist. Once the damage is confirmed, we will send you the replacement. After this 5-day period, Toolots will not be responsible for any reported shipping damages or missing items.  If you return an item without an RMA from us, the item is subject to not be allowed for return.
The last thing to remember is to keep all the original packing materials and all accessories, components/parts, and documentation in case you need to return the product back to us. It is your responsibility to re-box, re-crate, re-palletize, re-strap, or re-wrap the shipment and get it ready for carrier to pick up.
