- Payment Terms:
- C.O.D. – Cash or Cashiers Check is required.

Our policy is to consider allowance of a discount to any legitimate marine company including boat manufacturers. Before this discount is considered, proof that a company is actively and gainfully involved in the production of boats will be required. Possession of our OEM price sheet does not qualify a company to purchase at the OEM level. In addition to the above-mentioned proof of being in the marine business, we consider several other factors before granting a company OEM status.
Potential OEMs are also required to place an initial order which consists of a representative cross section of Products. The dollar amount of this order will be $25,000. OEMs are also required to maintain an annual purchasing volume of $25,000 to remain on the OEM program. Companies not meeting this requirement may be converted to dealer or resale purchasing status. The above provisions are strictly enforced.
Potential OEMs must submit the following before OEM purchasing will be considered:
- A copy of your current business license.
- A copy of your state sales tax certificate (where applicable).
- A completed and signed resale card (California only).
- A company letterhead, business card and a photocopy of your business check.
- Your business bank’s complete name, address and phone number.
- Names, complete addresses and phone numbers of three (3) current wholesale marine suppliers.
- Prefix of HIN issued by USCG.
All orders will be shipped by UPS or best method unless specified otherwise by customer. Special shipping requirements are likely to delay shipment of your order. All orders will be shipped F.O.B., Huron, Ohio. Any claims for shortage of product to customers must be reported within 24 hours of receipt of shipment for any adjustment to be considered. Shipment damage claims must be made directly with the freight carrier. DO NOT RETURN DAMAGED PRODUCTS to Zeiger Industries. Shipments will not be accepted.
Shipments returned to Zeiger Industries marked refused, or not in when driver called, will cause the refusing customer’s buying status to be frozen and a refused shipment fee may apply. No more shipments will be made until all freight C.O.D., and handling charges are paid in full. Refusal of a shipment does not relieve the customer liability for paying these charges. Repeated returned shipments of this type will cause the customer’s buying status to be permanently revoked.
Equipment may be returned for credit only by written confirmation. There will be a 15% handling charge on all merchandise returned to us, unless prior arrangements have been made. Merchandise must be returned prepaid, accompanied by a photo-copy of the original invoice on which it was purchased. NO RETURNS AFTER 90 DAYS. CUSTOM PARTS INCLUDING CUSTOM HOSE KITS ARE NOT RETURNABLE.
All prices are subject to change without verbal or written notice. Our price sheets are intended for use as a guideline only. Price sheets are often partially outdated by the time they are printed. All products will be shipped at the price in effect regardless of what the latest price sheet reflects. We are not responsible for errors or omissions.
