ONLINE STORE POLICIES and FAQ's
PRIVACY and SECURITY POLICY: We appreciate the trust that you place in us when you order. Northland Marine is committed to respecting your privacy and your information that you share with us. It is our goal to protect each and every customer that orders with us from the loss, misuse or alteration of any personal information that we collect. We will never sell or give that information to anyone. The collected information is solely for the purpose of accepting payments, shipping orders and assisting repeat customers. We use encryption technology to ensure the secure transmission of any personal information you provide. You can easily determine when you're sending data securely by looking at the web address (URL) in your browser window: the first few letters will change from "http" to "https" when you are transmitting information protected by SSL encryption. The "s" in "https" stands for "secure."
PRICES: Although we make every effort to assure that our prices and products are advertised as accurately as possible, we are only human, and if there happens to be an error in pricing, we reserve the right to correct it. In the event of a pricing error, the customer will be contacted directly via telephone or email to be notified of the change and to verify that the order is still wanted. We will never alter the pricing of an order that has been placed with us without first contacting the customer to explain the situation.
DOMESTIC SHIPPING: We ship to the (48) contiguous states of the US as well as Alaska and Hawaii via UPS domestic services. Our shipping week runs Monday thru Friday on the standard UPS schedule. We do not ship or deliver on Saturdays, Sundays or any other holidays that UPS observes (Check www.ups.com for excluded dates) Shipping charges are calculated based on the weight and dimension of the total shipment. Due to oversize restrictions, some items require additional shipping and handling charges. Any special handling costs or shipping fees will be added to your shipping options at checkout. AK and HI orders are subject to higher shipping rates and are not included in any domestic shipping specials. We try our best to ship all of our ground orders within 2 shipping days and expedited services will always be shipped same shipping day (order placed before 2:00 PM CDT) or next shipping day (order placed after 2:00 PM CDT.)
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: We specialize in international shipping and offer UPS international services to hundreds of countries. Not all UPS International delivery options will be available for every country. Our shipping week runs Monday thru Friday on the standard UPS schedule. We do not ship or deliver on Saturdays. We choose to ship all our international orders via UPS due to their speed, reliability and tracking proficiency. Our international customers can rest assured that their orders will arrive hassle free and in a timely fashion (less than 1 week in most cases) We will always do our best to ship all our international orders same day (before 2:00 PM CDT) or next day (after 2:00 PM CDT.) Northland Marine is not responsible for any duty, tax, or broker fee charged as an import fee by your home country. All duty and tax is the sole responsibility of the customer.
SHIPPING DELAYS: We are not responsible for any shipping delays due to bad weather or another "Act of God." In the event of a delay on an expedited order, we will be happy to petition UPS for a shipping refund. However, a shipping refund is not always guaranteed in these cases. There will be no refunds for delays on UPS Ground orders except in extreme cases. If you require an item by a certain date, please be sure to select a guaranteed service that meets your time frame.

We will ship your order to the exact address that you provide, so it needs to be as accurate as possible and avoid using abbreviations (for example type: County Road rather than CR) In the event of an invalid delivery address, Northland Marine reserves the right to correct the address using our UPS online database. Though we try to validate every address before shipment, we are not responsible for late or lost shipments due to an incorrectly typed address by the customer.
Can I change my delivery address after I have placed an order? Yes. There is no charge for changing the delivery address prior to the order leaving our facility.
