Disclaimer of Warranties 

The warranties provided above are the only warranties applicable.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability as to Shipping Errors 

We at RipTideSports.com and RipTideBushings.com realize that mistakes do happen. Although we work very hard to prevent errors when filling orders, the very fact that we employ human beings to pick, pack and ship orders makes errors possible. If we should inadvertently ship the wrong product to you or fail altogether to pack the product in a shipment, our procedure and policy for resolving the problem is as follows: RipTideBushings.com will verify that an item has been left out of a package by repacking the original order and comparing what the weight should have been to the actual weight shipped. If we can clearly see that an item was left out of the box, we will ship the item to you at no charge using the same shipping method that was originally used on the original order. We will gladly upgrade your service to ensure that it makes it to you on a specific date if you are willing to pay the difference in shipping costs between the new shipping method and the original shipping method.
