All promises of shipment or labor shortages, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of Coast Controls.

Failure to accept delivery for all items ordered within the period agreed to may result in Coast Controls re-establishing unit price for each item ordered for the entire order, i.e. for items shipped and for item not yet shipped. This new price will be based upon both the new number of units scheduled for delivery and the number of units already delivered. If this number of units falls below the quantity break required to receive the original quote, then the price will have to be adjusted.
SHORTAGES AND DAMAGES
All claims for shortages or shipment errors must be made within 15 days after the receipt of the shipment. Coast Controls liability is limited to the amount of material value on the invoice. Claims for other losses or damages are filed against the carrier involved in the specific shipment.
