Do Not Accept Damaged Products. If you accept damaged product by signing for the product in “good condition”, the carrier is responsible for providing repair / product cost reimbursement for hidden damage. You must submit damages to the carrier directly (Federal Express, DHL, UPS, USPS, etc). Once you sign for your shipment, ownership transfers to you. We highly recommend you inspect all products received prior to signing the bill of lading. We do not offer refunds for, nor do we allow the return of damaged products the customer signed for in “good condition”. Once the customer has provided requested photographs of damaged products and the claim has been initiated with the freight company for freight damage (during the freight companies allotted time period for hidden damage claims), we are happy to work with the customer to provide a replacement product at no charge. Orders that are cancelled because the product arrived damaged, does not void store policy for purchasing through Bath Tubs And More. Once the carrier is in possession of a product, liability for the safe delivery of that product falls to the carrier to provide.
Bath Tubs And More At Their Discretion, may provide a replacement product to the customer during the freight claim process. The customer must dispute the hidden damage claim with the freight company. It is not Bath Tubs And More’s responsibility to assist with the hidden damage claim, however, Bath Tubs And More may offer assistance at their own discretion. If the freight company does not find in favor of the customer, the customer is responsible for the full cost of the replacement product to Bath Tubs And More. Failure to remit payment will result in court action and additional fees. Payment for replacement products provided to the customer by Bath Tubs And More during the claim process, that ultimately are not covered by the freight company, must be paid for in full upon denial of damage claim.
For Customers Who Reside Outside The Carriers Normal Delivery Area, additional freight may be charged to the payment method on file. Our statement of (47) states includes freight, is for areas that are serviced on normal, regular routes by common carriers that DO NOT included additional fees for delivery. Those customers who require air or water delivery, who reside outside the Continental US (47 states) or who reside in isolated areas not included within common carriers regular delivery areas, additional freight charges will be applied by the original carrier making delivery.
For Those Customers Who Reside Outside A Carriers Normal Delivery Area Where No Service Is Available, the customer may be required to pick up their shipment at the carrier’s nearest terminal location. Bath Tubs And More does not arrange for delivery outside the carrier’s normal delivery area. We also do not guarantee curb side delivery to all delivery addresses in the US. Customers purchasing products through our web site or by phone, agree to pay any additional fees for delivery, or to pick product up at the carrier’s terminal. The act of shipping a product to an address provided by the customer, does not guarantee curb side or residential delivery. Additional charges will be billed to the credit card on file.
Customers Who Reside In Remote Areas Are Aware Of Freight Delivery Fees And Obstacles. The customer’s failure to disclose restricted delivery access to Bath Tubs And More, does not legally bind Bath Tubs And More to provide curb side delivery to that address. Customers returning product may not have residential pick up for those shipments, if they reside in a rural area out side of the carriers normal service area. Those shipments may require drop off at the carrier’s nearest authorized drop off center by the customer. Failure to return product to Bath Tubs And More will result in the customer being charged for said product, regardless of the reason the product was being returned.
Changing Delivery Address Once The Product Has Shipped. Please note for all change of delivery addresses, once the product has shipped, there is a $100.00 fee. Freight companies impose an $80.00 – $95.00 change fee for shipments. Change of address creates additional paperwork for Bath Tubs And More as those changes must be submitted to the carrier. The new address must be within the normal delivery area for the carrier making delivery. If the address is a remote address, additional fees may apply, per our policy. Change of address requests will delay the arrival of products. Once a product has delivered to the shipping address, we can not forward or reship the product. It is the customer’s responsibility to verify the shipping address on their invoice.
Refusal To Accept Product Upon Delivery. Other then for damaged freight, customers who refuse shipment upon delivery are still responsible for the cost of their custom order. Product that has been built and approved, can not be returned. Refusing to accept a shipment does not nullify the contract to build the product for the customer. Additional fees may be due for the product to be redelivered or for freight to move product to a storage location. All fees associated with a refusal of shipment will be billed to the customer.
Please Allow Up 3-8 Weeks For Delivery, Depending Upon The Product Ordered. All delivery times are estimated as unforeseen circumstances can delay orders. Please do not schedule your contractor until product arrives. For international sales, please contact Customer Service at 800-989-5166. Smaller purchases such as Copper Sinks, Copper Murals, Copper Tiles can be dropped shipped directly to Canada, for an additional shipping fee. Larger purchases such as Copper Bath Tubs, Copper Shower Pans, Copper Range Hoods, etc are shipped to a USA address provided by the customer (normally a freight terminal), then the customer arranges transportation from that freight terminal forward. We do not export large products and we do not cover export fees or taxes. All fees associated with exporting / importing products is the responsibility of the customer.

It is up to the customer to provide the proper installation design and sizing for the copper product they are having built. We build to the customer’s approved specifications only.
Any Suggestions Or comments From Bath Tubs And More Regarding The Design Of Custom Products, are for reference only. The customer makes and accepts final design decision. All sales are final. If there is a warranty or design issue with a custom product, the customer must provide required photographs requested to verify their claim. Customers who refuse to provide the required documentations; photographs, measurements, etc, their claim will be voided, as proof has not been adequately provided of an error or defect in the copper product.

For some custom orders, the customer may be required to supply their own line drawings. The cost for drawings that are provided for a paid-for order that has been cancelled, will be deducted from the original purchase price. Custom line drawings provided for orders that were cancelled (for any reason) will be billed at a minimum $100.00 per drawing. The fees for the line drawing(s) remained due, as the customer is in possession of a paid for product (re: line drawing) created for the cancelled product, which has monetary value. Delivery time for custom products is based on the final drawing approval by the customer. Products built to line drawings that are + / – are considered built to said specifications. All delivery times are estimated. Unforeseen delays can arise due to holidays or difficulty in building custom products ordered.
For Line Drawings of “Exclusively Designed Products“, aka products offered exclusively by the Bath Tubs And More or created exclusively by Bath Tubs And More as a “one of a kind” for the customer, Bath Tubs And More (VL Martin LLC) retains full ownership rights of all drawings provided. Those drawings may not be copied or modified in any manner to build products elsewhere, whether for personal or commercial use without written consent by Bath Tubs And More’s parent company VL Martin LLC. Violation of this policy may result in legal recourse. Images of copper products built by Bath Tubs And More are copyrighted and solely owned by Bath Tubs And More (VL Martin LLC). Customers agree to these terms by purchasing through Bath Tubs And More. Photographs of custom copper products are displayed on our websites.
Exclusive Line Drawings Are Included In The Purchase Price Of Custom Product, unless otherwise stated. However, if the order is cancelled for any reason, Bath Tubs And More reserves the right to charge a minimum of $500.00 for the labor and time involved in creating an exclusive line drawing(s). Minimum payment of $500.00 does not infer ownership rights of said line drawing(s) to the customer, as VL Martin LLC retains all legal rights to the exclusive line drawings. Payment is to subsidize the cost of labor and time spent working with the customer and the manufacture to create the final design of the exclusive product.
Bath Tubs And More’s Agreement With The Customer To Cancel An Exclusive Product Order, does not render the minimum $500.00 payment invalid. Exclusive in-house line drawings (includes but is not limited to): BT-008 Copper Corner Bath Tub; BT-016 Heart Copper Bath Tub; BT-005 Apron Copper Bath Tub; BT-005 Japanese Copper Bath Tub, CRH-007 Copper Range Hood W/Shelving. Line drawings of standard copper products that are not modified from their original drawing, are excluded from the exclusive designed statement.
Patina Finishes. Bath Tubs And More offers a large selection of patina finishes. All patinas are hand created, so no two patinas are ever the same. We offer one patina change at no charge per product. Any patina change request after the first free change will be charged based on the product purchased. Patina finishes will change coloring in different lights. All patina finishes are created by combining several patinas together. Each one of those patina strands will show through in brighter or darker light. In purchasing copper, the customer understands that the patina finish will be unique to each product it is applied to and that a consistent, unchanging patina finish is not possible. Patinas of the same finish will vary in final coloring. Customers who prefer a one dimensional, uniform color, should not purchase copper products. Variations in patina finishes are not a defect, but a natural occurrence for copper. New Coffee, Dark Splattered, Brown Splattered, Raw Copper are designed to be artistic in their coloring. Patinas are applied by fire, therefore, there is no way to control the final look of the patina finish. Some patina finishes may have a stronger dark splatter appearance than another copper product with the same patina finish applied. This is a natural result of the chosen patina finish. Because copper is unique to it’s self, we can not “match colors” of other home products that are not of a copper base. Mixing stone and ceramic tile with copper is very pretty, but the copper patina will not match the stone or ceramic tile perfectly, as they are entirely different materials. For the best end results, we recommend purchasing your copper product first, before investing in stone, marble or ceramic tile.
Displayed Pricing: Pricing shown, to our best knowledge is correct. Should a pricing error occur, we reserve the right to sell the item at the pricing shown or to correct product pricing to the current pricing available.

Product Warranty Covers Normal Use Of Products Only. Warranty starts the day the product ships the factory, not the day the product is installed. Products that have been used in a manner that is not associated with normal use and care such as; filling tubs/sinks with hot water above 102 degrees or water high in mineral content (minerals may have a negative reaction to the living copper patina), applying chemicals to the surface finish (which includes, but is not limited to; cleaners, sea salts, bath salts, baking soda, vinegar or any other non-recommended ingredient), rough handling of the product or failure to maintain proper patina care, are not covered under the manufacture warranty. Foods with an acid base can damage the patina surface if left sitting in the bowl. After use of your copper product, clean with soft soap and wipe the surface dry with a soft cloth. Any attempt to alter the surface texture finish, such as removing the lacquer coating (if applicable) or altering the original patina finish, voids all warranty coverage. The lacquer coatings (if applicable) can be damaged by water temperatures above 102 degrees or by chemicals applied to the surface or to the water. The lacquer finish (if applicable) is warrantied for 6 months with normal use and care. Variations in the patina finish are not a defect, but are considered a natural state for patinas. Patinas will darken and change over time with use. Patinas not cared for by waxing, will eventually turn green, which is a natural aging process for copper. Patinas by nature are imperfect in appearance. Products built with a weld, that weld carries a 10 year warranty not to break or leak, based upon normal use of the product. Product that has been altered from it’s original shape or design, or has been used in a rough manner or dropped, are not covered. As with all warranty claims, images and documentation must be provided to show proof of loss.
