Placing Order / Pricing

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all orders are subject to acceptance by Masonic Insights within seven (7) days of receipt by Masonic Insights of the customer’s offer.

Pricing is exclusive of any taxes because this is an international site. Please note that pricing and stock availability are subject to change without prior notice. Masonic Insights reserves the right not to sell below its cost. Errors and omissions excepted.

If Masonic Insights requests payment for increased prices, you may cancel the order by giving notice to Masonic Insights, which must be received within seven days of the announcement of the increase.

To minimize errors and improve efficiency, orders should be placed using our on-line ordering system whenever possible.

Quantity in stock displayed on the web site should be considered as a guide only. Quantity in stock does not take into account the orders already placed which are yet to be processed. It is possible that an order placed earlier will receive the allocation of the part in which the quantity for it showed as in stock at the time of your order. Inventory discrepancy can also affect the accuracy of the stock status displayed on the web site.

Price may vary depending upon location due to freight costs and other logistical requirements.

Masonic Insights reserves the rights to adjust freight cost at any time.

Approval Process

Customers who place orders which have custom design items will be sent a picture for approval prior to delivery. The purpose of the approval process is to confirm the color and details of previously supplied or agreed artwork. Should there be any errors then these will be corrected at no extra cost and another picture will be submitted for approval, should a request be made for changes to the original order then these changes will be chargeable at a minimum fee of $30.00 per item.

If there is any question regarding color then the customer can supply Pantone Codes for any or all parts of the order as different monitors will show different color shades.

Please note that once an order is approved in writing, any subsequent errors found after delivery will be the responsibility of the customer.

Delivery / Collection

Customers are responsible to have someone at the delivery address to sign for and accept the delivery. Cost for re-delivery attempts will be passed to the customers if the delivery address is unattended at the time of delivery.

It is possible to ensure that a signature is required for all deliveries. Should you require this service, you need to indicate so in the Special Instructions at Check out.

If the address provided with the order is incomplete or incorrect and additional charges are incurred, these will be billed to the credit card used for the original order.

After your order is placed, you will be sent an Email acknowledgement.

Delivery Time

Any date quoted for delivery is an estimate only, and unless a guarantee shall have been given by Masonic Insights in writing providing for liquidated damages for failure to deliver by the quoted date, Masonic Insights shall not be liable to the Customer for any loss or damage howsoever arising for failure to deliver on or before the quoted date. The Customer shall accept and pay for Products, notwithstanding any failure by Masonic Insights to deliver by the quoted date.

Goods specially manufactured, must be fully paid for prior to delivery & cannot be returned or exchanged without express approval from Masonic Insights in writing. The latter case would still attract the normal restocking fee.
