These Terms and Conditions are a vital part of the agreement outlined on the front side of this document between the Customer and First Responder Garage Doors.
a) The Customer retains the right to cancel this agreement and work order within a span of 3 business days from the date of signing the agreement, provided the request is made prior to the commencement of installation or any on-site work. Such cancellations will incur no financial repercussions or costs to the Customer. (All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing with the Customer’s signature.) The Customer acknowledges that placing a special order (such as custom-made doors or openers, orders for 3 or more items, unique requests, or items not in stock, etc.) with First Responder Garage Doors will result in a complete waiver of the cancellation right, and the Customer will assume financial responsibility for all work carried out as per this agreement.
b) If the Customer opts to cancel this agreement/work order after the initial 3 business days from the agreement’s signing date but before the scheduled installation date, a restocking fee amounting to 25% of the total job cost will be levied against the Customer’s deposit. The remaining portion of the deposit will be promptly refunded to the Customer.
2. Dates and Prices
a) All commencement dates for installation, as mentioned on the front side of this document, are approximate and are subject to the availability schedule of First Responder Garage Doors. First Responder Garage Doors will exert reasonable efforts to adhere to the quoted date(s). However, First Responder Garage Doors will not be held accountable for failure to meet the specified dates or for any delays in performance due to unforeseen circumstances, shortages beyond control, causes outside its jurisdiction, or voluntary or mandatory compliance with governmental acts, regulations, or requests. In situations where First Responder Garage Doors’s supplies of the covered equipment or service (referred to as the Product(s) herein) are limited due to such circumstances, First Responder Garage Doors reserves the right to apportion the available supply among its customers at its sole discretion.
b) In the event that the Customer requests alterations to the estimated installation or completion dates, introduces delays in delivery, demands shipment of the Products to an alternate location other than the initially designated delivery site, or seeks additional work not originally stipulated in this agreement, the previously established prices shall no longer be applicable.
The Customer commits to thoroughly examine and provide written authorization for all designs, Products, and installation instructions before any work outlined in this agreement begins. First Responder Garage Doors does not assume any responsibility and shall not be held liable for work conducted by First Responder Garage Doors in adherence to the provisions outlined in those designs, Products, or instructions.

As a result, the Customer will be obligated to remit payment for the work in accordance with the conditions outlined herein.

In cases where full payment is not made upfront, the Customer agrees to settle the remaining balance upon the successful completion of the installation services outlined on the front side.

The Customer hereby waives any entitlement to refunds, with a policy of “No Exchange, No Refunds” in place.

Should the Customer become delinquent in the payment of any sum due under this agreement, or if the Customer becomes insolvent, or if bankruptcy or similar proceedings are initiated under relevant laws for the Customer’s reorganization or debt adjustment, First Responder Garage Doors is not obligated to continue its performance.
First Responder Garage Doors retains the right to modify the credit terms outlined herein if, in the opinion of First Responder Garage Doors, the Customer’s financial condition or payment history justifies such a change. In the event that, within thirty (30) days of receiving written notification about such alterations, the Customer disagrees with and adhere to the revised credit terms or fails to provide satisfactory assurance of timely performance, First Responder Garage Doors reserves the right to consider such failure or refusal as a repudiation by the Customer of the portion of the purchase order not yet fully executed. In such cases, First Responder Garage Doors may remove all equipment installed by First Responder Garage Doors under this agreement from the Customer’s premises.
The Customer assumes full responsibility for the final settlement of all sales taxes or any applicable taxes. In instances where the Customer asserts that a transaction is not subject to any such tax, claims exemption, or contends that First Responder Garage Doors is not obligated to collect said tax, the Customer agrees to furnish First Responder Garage Doors with any requisite documentation to substantiate such a claim.
The purchase price of the Products sold under this agreement does not encompass installation services or labor costs. In cases where Products necessitate installation by First Responder Garage Doors’s service personnel, the onus lies with the Customer to ensure that the site is suitably prepared and equipped in terms of environmental conditions and required amenities such as power, water, drainage, air, bottled gases, permits, licenses, approvals, and the like. Please fulfill these prerequisites before First Responder Garage Doors’s service personnel arrive at the agreed-upon installation site to avoid First Responder Garage Doors imposing a service charge to compensate for the lost time of its service personnel.
Given that First Responder Garage Doors’s service personnel will need to access the Customer’s premises, the Customer hereby commits to maintaining a safe environment on its premises and abiding by all relevant laws, statutes, and regulations pertaining to workplace health and safety.
