Multiple Product Orders
Order Acceptance Policy
All in stock orders will ship within 1 to 3 business days (Normally if possible, expected to be shipped same day). However, there may be times when a product you have ordered is out-of-stock at our distribution center which will delay fulfilling your order. Normal transit times for products that have to be transferred from an alternate warehouse to our distribution center range from 2 to 5 business days.
If the item is not available at the alternate warehouse, it will be considered backordered. Manufacturer backorders may create longer delays and vary widely. We will keep you informed via email of any products that become backordered and/or unavailable from the manufacturer. If your order contains multiple items and one or more parts are out of stock, we will ship your order when it is complete. (Split shipments are available upon request and may require additional shipping.)
Please contact us if you ever have any questions about your order. We are eager to assist in any way possible. Call us toll free at 1-800-257-0114 (Monday thru Friday 8:30am-5:00pm EST)
Note: We cannot guarantee when an order will arrive once we have shipped it. Consider any shipping or transit time offered to you by this site or other parties only as an estimate. We encourage you to order in a timely fashion to avoid delays caused by holidays, weather related shipping delays or product availability.
Please note: Holidays observed by Austral International Co. and/or UPS/USPS are not considered business days for the purposes of estimating fulfillment or shipping transit times. We ship to physical addresses in all 50 United States and to PO Boxes in all states.

Express Shipping Service & Request to Change Service

It only reduces the travel time after leaving our warehouse.For example: an out of stock part might take two or more days to leave our warehouse, but then would be guaranteed (by Shipper) to arrive in two business days.
Truck Freight Shipments
Items too heavy or too large for standard ground shipments will be shipped by truck. Please call us for a freight quote. Include your daytime phone number on the order form so the carrier can schedule merchandise delivery to be made when you will have unloading help on hand. Always better if you can arrange drop off at a commercial location. (Truck freight companies do not require their drivers to unload shipments. An additional lift gate charge may apply if the driver unloads the merchandise.)
Receiving & Inspecting Freight Shipments
When you receive a shipment, ask the carrier the following questions:
- Is it for me? Check the delivery receipt for the consignee's name and address. If your company has more than one location, make sure the goods are for this exact address. Check the freight to see if it is the same as described on the delivery receipt. Look at the label on each item to make sure the shipment belongs to you.
- Is it damaged? Do not sign the receipt before inspecting for damage. Check for holes, water, stains, and tears. Pick up cartons if you can. Check for rattling. Listen for something broken inside. Check to see if any packages have been opened or if the sealing tape has been tampered with.
- Is the piece count correct? Count the pieces and match the number on the delivery receipt to the number you have counted. If the shipment is on a pallet, check to make sure the pallet is solid with no voids inside the stack. If the shipment is shrink or stretch wrapped, make sure the wrap hasn't been cut and pieces removed. Sign only for the type of unit you receive.
If your delivery doesn't check out, do one of the following:
- Refuse shipment if it isn't yours, if the shipment does not meet the terms specified by your company, or is damaged to the point where it no longer has a value.
- If yours, and only partially damaged or short, accept it and note exceptions on the delivery receipt.
How to note exceptions:
- Damage Notations: Be specific. Describe the damage accurately. Pinpoint the locations of all defects. If you can see the damage, have the driver wait while you open and inspect the packages. Write down the number and identity of the damaged pieces.
- Shortage Notations: If part of shipment is missing, write the number of pieces actually delivered on the delivery receipt and circle it. Then write down the number of pieces missing and note them as "short."
- Signatures: Write down all exceptions on both copies of the delivery receipt. Have the driver sign both copies of the delivery receipt in his full name (not initials or nicknames). After the driver signs, you sign also. Write your company’s name, your full name, the date, and the time of day.
Follow these steps when requesting an inspection:
- The receiving person is responsible for requesting the carrier to inspect the damaged goods and packaging. The formal request should be made by phone right after discovering any loss or damage.
- After the phone request, make out a request for inspection by the carrier in writing. Note the date and time of your previous phone call and the person contacted. Keep a copy of your request letter on file.
- Once contacted about damage or shortage, the carrier may waive inspection and tell you so. If so, write down the name of the person who waived the inspection, and the date and time of waiver. Then conduct your own detailed inspection. Write up your findings in a report and attach it to the file. If you can, take photographs to confirm your inspection report.Westerbeke Shipping policyWesterbeke part can only be shipped to the following territory as parts of a distribution agreement with the brand manufacturer.For example: Alabama, Antigua, Bahama Islands, Florida, Grenada, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Tobago, Turks & Caicos, Virgin Island - US.Return Policies
