Terms of Sale

SHIPPING CHARGES

All orders are subject to the addition of shipping charges and, if applicable, state sales tax. Upon receipt of your order GMC Equipment will obtain a shipping cost based on our Shipping Policy below. This amount will be added to the purchase price of the machinery or equipment in your order. If your shipping destination is within the State of Florida than we will calculate the amount of sales tax due. This amount will be added to the purchase price of the machinery or equipment in your order. Accordingly, the total amount due includes the cost of the machinery or equipment in your order plus the shipping cost plus state sales tax, if appropriate. The purchaser agrees that this is the total amount due.
