DISCLAIMER OF ALL WARRANTIES: LARSON MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT ANY GOODS SOLD BY LARSON TO BUYER AND LARSON IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE QUALITY OF SUCH GOODS. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, LARSON MAKES NO WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND THE GOODS ARE NOT WARRANTED TO BE FIT FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Any extended warranty, if any, purchased by Buyer with respects to any Goods shall be in writing signed by Larson, and shall be solely on the terms and conditions set forth therein.
LIMITATION OF DAMAGES: LARSON SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO BUYER FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS, LABOR COSTS, DAMAGE TO OTHER EQUIPMENT OR PROPERTY OR LIABILITY OR INJURY TO A THIRD PARTY, ARISING FROM THE SALE, USE, MISUSE, OR MISAPPLICATION OF THE GOODS, FROM THE GOODS BEING INCORPORATED INTO ANOTHER PRODUCT, OR FROM ANY OTHER CAUSE WHATSOEVER, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED) OR OTHERWISE BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY.

Compressor Replacement Policy: The purchase price of any compressor purchased by Buyer to replace an existing compressor is due in accordance with Larson’s then applicable credit terms, whether or not Buyer asserts any warranty claim against the manufacturer (or pursuant to any extended warranty purchased by Buyer from Larson) with respect to the Goods to be replaced. Any eligible compressor returned to Larson within 30 days after shipment of a replacement will be accepted only for salvage credit or scrap, the amount of which shall be based solely on the manufacturer’s determination of salvage value, if any. A compressor is eligible for purposes of return and credit only if such compressor was purchased from Larson or was made by a manufacturer for which Larson is an authorized distributor at the time of replacement.
Returned Goods Policy: Larson will accept the return of Goods only with Larson’s prior authorization and only in accordance with Larson’s then-current returned goods policy, which may be modified or terminated by Larson from time to time without notice.

Returns of non-stock or special-order items are subject to a handling charge and the manufacturer’s return policy; order cancellations on special-order items are subject to the manufacturer’s acceptance. Larson will not accept returns of refrigerants and certain electrical devices. Transportation charges and other costs of returning Goods shall be paid by buyer. Unauthorized returns will be returned to Buyer freight collect or held and sold at salvage value to cover storage and handling expenses.
Damaged Shipment Policy: Transportation companies delivering Goods accept full liability while the merchandise is in transit and until Buyer acknowledges receipt to the delivering carrier. UPON RECEIVING EACH SHIPMENT, CAREFULLY INSPECT EACH PACKAGE, looking for punctures, abrasions, and other evidence of possible damage. In the event that there is visible damage to the cartons, do not accept delivery until the condition is noted on Buyer’s copy of the freight bill and signed as much by the driver of the delivering carrier. Open all packages and inspect the items as soon as possible. In the event damage is discovered later, please notify the delivering carrier immediately in writing, and ask for an inspection report. PLEASE DO NOT RETURN DAMAGED MERCHANDISE. DAMAGED MERCHANDISE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TRUCKING COMPANY AND SHOULD NOT BE RETURNED TO LARSON.
