Merchandise Pricing
All prices displayed on this Site are quoted in U.S. Dollars and are valid and effective only in the United States. Any discounts offered and accepted are solely on a per-job basis. Sales tax is payable by buyers residing in the state of Florida.

Shipping and Delivery
JoeJude Enterprises will supply all the necessary parts and initial labor in constructing the items for sale as depicted on the site. As a cost-saver to the buyer, JoeJude Enterprises may/may not deliver to the depot of your Trucking / Freight company in the Ocala, Gainesville, Jacksonville area once your request has been received and accepted and your check for items sold has been cleared by the bank, for further shipping to customer's shipping address. Shipping and delivery is a contract or agreement between the customer's chosen Trucking / Freight company and the customer. JoeJude Enterprises is not involved in this agreement except to deliver items to their depot in the Ocala, Gainesville, Jacksonville area or request collection at our address, the decision and choice being solely that of JoeJude Enterprises.
Once items have left our premises they become the responsibility of the purchaser.

Installation
Installation of any item is a separate agreement between you and JoeJude Enterprises. We will supply the necessary parts and erection instructions, if necessary, of the item purchased, broken down for shipping and delivery purposes, and once delivered to you, our liability ceases. These parts need to be re-attached and re-assembled to obtain the finished product. The construction and installation responsibility now falls to the customer, however JoeJude Enterprises strongly suggests that two (2) people with power tool knowledge and experience do the final installation and compilation of the item/s.

If the buyer wishes to involve JoeJude Enterprises in the erection and/or installation of any bought item (for example, a bar), this will be an additional agreement between the buyer and JoeJude Enterprises.

It is the responsibility of the buyer to comply with and/or to obtain permission, and/or certificates and/or permits and/or all necessary paperwork, of all laws and bylaws of the county and state, and development and/or other authority, in which the buyer wishes the bought item to be erected. The buyer will hold JoeJude Enterprises blameless from any non-compliance with any of these laws, bylaws, rules, etc. 

PLEASE NOTE: Some items are heavy. Please take all precautions to prevent injury. After delivery JoeJude Enterprises accepts no responsibility whatsoever for the erection, installation, collection or movement of any item.

Custom Made Items
An additional agreement between the customer and JoeJude Enterprises will be necessary if any item needs to be custom made or major changes are requested. An invoice depicting the order and any changes/alterations will be deemed accepted by the buyer when payment is made and accepted, whether in full or part. The Invoice and this agreement form the full and sole agreement between the parties.

Non-United States Residents
JoeJude Enterprises makes no representation that materials on the Site, including merchandise offered for sale on the Site and their copyrights, trademarks, patents, and licensing arrangements, are appropriate or available for use in locations other than the United States. Those who choose to access this Site from other locations outside of the U.S. do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

General Provisions
These Terms and Conditions of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to conflicts of laws provisions. The sole and exclusive jurisdiction for any action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions of Use shall be an appropriate State or Federal court located in Putnam County in the State of Florida and you hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of such courts. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms and Conditions of Use, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of these Terms and Conditions of Use, and the remainder of these Terms and Conditions of Use shall continue in full force and effect.

These Terms and Conditions of Use, including any Invoice depicting an order and for which payment is received in full or part, constitute the entire agreement between you and JoeJude Enterprises with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter. No waiver by JoeJude Enterprises of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

Payment
Prices quoted exclude Crating and Packaging and Handling and Shipping and these will be charged separately.

Payment in full is expected at time of order. Once monies have cleared the bank, the order process will be started. Orders over $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) may be made in two payments of 50% (fifty percent or half of total) at time of order, and 50% (fifty percent or balance of order) before delivery or collection is arranged with a Carrier Company. Once purchaser has been notified, generally by email, that the order is complete, the purchaser will be given 10 days to make final payment and, if necessary, organize collection of order, failing which JoeJude Enterprises will retain order in full, including any payments made to date and defer all items to stock and cash to bank account as payment for inconvenience and storage.
