At minimum dress standards include company provided logo shirts for inside sales, warehouse, delivery and transfer staff. No other shirts are authorized.

Not available at this time.



IV. Price Review & Management Policy

It is Allred's intent to implement pricing policies and practices that strike a fair balance of value between local market pricing for like goods, quantities, services, terms, etc. and that cover our cost of doing business, and provide a reasonable return for our efforts and investments.

To that end our most recent list pricing and terms policies are current as shown in the product catalog portion of our website www.allreds.net. Wholesale discount pricing and terms may be viewed by qualified customers having established a wholesale account and having received a catalog log-in from Allred's Marketing Department.

A review of pricing policies and practices may be requested by customers or staff members via a written request submitted either to sales manager; (Doug Lukins), purchasing manager; (Dave Carson), or pricing manager; (Bob Allred). Requests should contain details of customer(s) or items(s) to be reviewed, as well as suggested change(s), and supporting reasons for same.

The review request may range from one or two items for one or two customers, up to many products for many customers. Reviews will be better received and more likely to be conducted in relation to the degree that specific suggestions regarding "what product(s)? sold to whom? and amount of change requested" are provided. Requests that include comparable recent pricing from competitors will receive priority.

The review process will include an analysis of our current and replacement inventory, expected increases in same, amount of inventory on hand, lead time for replacement, turns of inventory, profitability of past sales, and expected impact on volume of sales if adjustments are made. Adjustments requested for individual or small numbers customers will also include a review of their accounts receivable status.

Results of reviews will range from no adjustments being made, to individual contract pricing for small numbers of products and/or customers, to overall adjustments in matrix pricing for wide ranges of products and/or customers. Adjustments may be time or quantity limited, or permanent, as specified.

Overall, pricing is a complex process. Our intent, stated above, can best be accomplished by careful review and management of the many variables mentioned above. There is not much chance of success to be had from shortcutting this process.

The customer assumes all responsibility and liability for damage, theft or other losses incurred as a result of work performed by our staff.

The tech services charge will be applied for (but not limited to) the following:

  • Website & Graphic Design (ie: logo creation, business cards, business documents, etc.)
  • Computer Repair Services (ie: cleaning, virus & spyware removal, hardware/software installation, etc.)
  • Computer Building Services (ie: new computer builds, computer assembly, etc.)
  • Purchases Made for Customers by Our Tech Services Staff for Non-HVAC Related Items
    • In situations where a customer asks our tech services department to make a purchase for them, such as for computer parts, software, tools, or other items not directly related to HVAC, the tech services charge will apply.
  • Cell Phone Support (ie: repair, troubleshooting, maintenance, etc.)
    Other Device Related Support: (ie: tablets, laptops, music players, media players, televisions, etc.)

The list above represents only a portion of the services that could be performed by our staff. In general, Allred's recommends that customers first seek licensed companies and professionals to perform these types of services before consulting with our staff. If you have questions or would like to discuss this policy further, please contact a member of our staff.

 


XII. Terms of Sale

POLICY UPDATE - 06/18/13: CREDIT CARD SURCHARGE

Due to the unpredictable economy and ever-rising cost of doing business, effective June 24th, 2013 a credit card surcharge fee will be applied to all credit card transactions. Please know that we have struggled with this decision and it has been met only through an extensive evaluation of our business practices and careful consideration of the valued relationships that we have with our customers.

The surcharge will apply to the following credit cards:

  • American Express
  • Discover
  • MasterCard Credit
  • Visa Credit


As our customer, we are sensitive to your need to remain competitive and realize the impact that this fee will have on the profitability and success of your business. We continue to provide and encourage various other payment methods, through which this surcharge can be avoided.

  • There is no surcharge for customers that pay with cash.
  • There is no surcharge for customers that pay with a check.
  • There is no surcharge for customers that pay with a debit or gift card.
  • There is no surcharge for customers that have a qualifying terms account with us and pay with one of the methods listed above; in fact, customers can take advantage of a 2% early pay discount (2% 10th Prox) on their account; speak with our credit department if you would like more information about setting up a terms account.


We want to sincerely express our thanks for your understanding and continued support. We remain committed to providing our customers with the best products, services and overall distributor experience in the HVAC industry. We invite you to contact us at your earliest convenience with any questions you may have regarding this change.

STANDARD TERMS OF SALE

Credit Privileges:

Allred's Inc. is a wholesale only distributor serving licensed contractors, service businesses and industrial or governmental entities who have established wholesale accounts. We appreciate the customers we serve who recognize the value of credit and respect it by paying their bills when due. To them, we know that a firm credit policy is helpful in minimizing unfair competition. We welcome new accounts and will extend regular credit terms to them upon verification of reliability through personal and trade references.

A credit application is available from any of our stores or in the Allred's Download Center online. A properly completed application, signed by the owner(s) or officers of your company, including all applicable license information and returned to Allred's Midvale office, will initiate a prompt credit review and response. While credit references are verified, new customers may purchase under Allred's cash purchase options without the need for credit references.

Terms of Sale:

  • Regular Terms of Sale - Early Pay Discount 2% 10th Prox, Net End of Month, Past Due After.


Payment Options:

We currently accept the following payment options:

  • Cash or Check (with proper authorization & approval)
  • Discover, Visa, Mastercard or American Express (credit or debit option)
  • We also set up job accounts and joint check agreement job accounts. Contact our credit department for more information


Invoicing and Monthly Statements:

Invoices are processed and mailed (or e-mailed through the optional E-Documents service) weekly. We normally close our books around the 28th of each month; purchases through that date will be included. Statements of accumulated purchases and credits are mailed (or e-mailed through the optional E-Documents service) on or before the last day of the month.

Each individual invoice will show terms of sale and discount to be earned if paid according to terms. The monthly statement will show a total accumulated discount for all invoices included on that statement. Discounts are earned only when payments are made by the 10th of the month following purchase. To allow for occasional slow mail service, payments which are postmarked by the 10th of the month and received in our offices by the 15th of the month will be considered for discount. Payments received in our office after the 15th of the month will be charged back to the account as unearned and show as short paid and will remain on the account until paid.

Invoices become past due if not paid by the end of the month following purchase. If still unpaid by the 10th day of the second month following purchase, sales can be made only through the Cash Purchase Option (CPO) or credit card options until the account is brought current.

Interest Charges:

Our statement for the month following most recent purchases will show an interest charge of 1.5% per month (18% annually) on any past due amounts. Payments will be applied first to the interest and then the oldest amount owing, so as to keep the account as nearly current as possible.

Example: JULY PURCHASES

Due with applicable early pay discount >> Aug. 10th
Due payable net, end of month; past due after >> Aug. 30th
Account past due, CPO option in effect >> Sept. 10th

Interest on past due calculated from Sept. 1st, will be added to the Sept. 30th statement.

We recognize that occasionally an amount may become past due for an unavoidable reason. If this should occur, please call our credit department to advise and discuss. Special terms may be considered.

We hope these frank and objective statements of our credit policies illustrate our sincere interest in providing our customers the best financial services that we are able, and that they will appreciate the necessity of adhering to the stated terms of sale for the business they favor us with.



XIII. Traffic Violations Policy

If you are authorized to operate a Company vehicle in the course of your assigned work, or if you operate your own vehicle in performing your job, you are admonished and expected to obey all traffic regulations and to operate the vehicle in a safe and courteous manner at all times.

Cooperate with the investigating officer, and provide insurance information from the insurance I.D. card carried in each Company vehicle. No further statements regarding the cause or fault of the accident should be made.
