Frequently Asked Questions


ORDERING

I think I may have inadvertently placed a duplicate order.  What should I do?
Call DTSmachinery.com customer service at 1-310-327-6568. We will void the order for you as long as it has not been invoiced or shipped.  If duplicate orders have been shipped, obtain the tracking number(s) for the order(s) you do not want and refuse the shipment when it arrives from the carrier (UPS). You will be refunded in full when those items are returned to DTSmachinery.com.

After I submit an order, how will I be advised of its progress?
DTSmachinery.com will keep you informed of your order via e-mail.  Your tracking number will be emailed to you when the item is shipped.  Any backorders or delays will be notified via e-mail.  Questions pertaining to order status should be directed to:
sales@DTSmachinery.com.

Can I add, change, or remove items after my order has been submitted?
No.  Once an order has been submitted it can only be amended or edited by e-mailing DTSmachinery.com customer service at
sales@DTSmachinery.com.  If an item has been previously shipped from our warehouse, items cannot be shipped or deleted.  Once an order has shipped, it cannot be voided.

How long does it take to process an order?
All orders are generally processed within one to two business days (prior to shipping).  Once your order has shipped, your estimated time of arrival will be determined by your selected shipping method.  Rush orders can only be processed if placed before 11am CST the day of the order with expedited shipping.  Our preferred method of shipping is United Parcel Service.  UPS generally takes 3-5 business days for ground shipping.  More information can be found on
http://www.ups.com/.

Can I re-activate an order that has been voided/cancelled?

Which states require their residents to pay sales tax for DTSmachinery.com orders?
Orders shipping to Texas must be charged sales tax based on the county's rate. If you are a re-seller, you must fax a copy of your resale certificate to 1-310-327-6568.  Be sure to include your order number on the resale certificate.  Tax charged will be credited within one to two business days. 

UPS ships to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico via UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day and UPS Next Day Saver only. If you've selected any other UPS shipping method prior to choosing a shipping address in Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico, your shipping method will default to the cheapest available UPS shipping method and you will be charged accordingly.  Orders shipping to Puerto Rico will incur a 6.6% duty tax and an additional $5.00 handling charge.

Place your initial order online.  After you have submitted your order, fax us at 1-310-327-6568 with your Government or Reseller Tax Exempt Permit/Certificate and include the sales order number.  We will gladly refund your tax charged on the order.

Tax: All customers outside of Texas will not be charged any tax. Therefore, customers in those locales do not need to fax or set up any reseller tax exemption form.

Why was my credit/debit card declined when I know for certain that I have the funds available?
A credit card can be declined due to an incorrectly entered credit card number or expiration date, a daily limit, insufficient credit or other reasons. Contact your credit card company for more information.

Does DTSmachinery.com know why my credit card was declined?
Our system charges your credit card automatically. We are not given a reason for any decline. Please verify that you've given us the correct credit card number and expiration date.

UPS has my package but it has not been delivered yet. Why?
Please contact UPS directly at 1-800-PICK-UPS (800-742-5877) to find out more information.  You will need to provide them with your UPS Tracking Number.

I was not home when a delivery was attempted and a UPS InfoNotice was left.  Will UP make another attempt?
Yes. UPS makes up to three delivery attempts, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

What time will UPS make its next delivery attempt?
If this was a first or second attempt, the next delivery attempt will be made on the next business day. Your UPS driver has indicated on the UPS InfoNotice the approximate time range within which the next attempt will be made.

When will my UPS Package arrive?
In the U.S., your UPS package cannot be scheduled to arrive at a specific time of day. UPS Ground packages are delivered anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Does DTSmachinery.com pay the return shipping cost for defective merchandise?

Why was my order sent in multiple packages when it could have all fit in one box?DTSmachinery.com may decide to package your items separately due to weight or size concerns. The most common reason why multiple boxes are used for a single order is that DTSmachinery.com uses multiple warehouse locations. If items are stocked in different warehouses, they cannot be boxed together.

UPS has returned my package to DTSmachinery.com. What happens now?Once we receive the package, we'll credit your credit card back in full, including any shipping costs you may have paid. A Return Merchandise Authorization number will then be automatically generated by our system, and an email notification will be sent to notify you of the returned merchandise.

What should I do if my oversize monitor or television (24”+) arrives damaged or defective?
Should you observe any damage to the shipping box, or if the wrong product was sent, you must refuse delivery while the shipping courier is still on the premises. The item will be returned and you will be refunded the full amount, including applicable shipping costs and tax. If you determine upon inspection that the condition of the shipping box is satisfactory, an adult is required to sign the shipping courier's release form to complete delivery. By signing this release, you are acknowledging and agreeing DTSmachinery.com’s Terms and Conditions, understanding that you cannot return the television to DTSmachinery.com and that the condition of the delivery meets your expectations. After delivery, please read all included documentation and/or contact the manufacturer directly to determine applicable warranty coverage or for technical support.

Does DTSmachinery.com ship internationally?
We do not ship internationally at this time.
