Shipping and Returns

Shipping and Returns


Shipping and handling will be billed FOB shipping point and added to your invoice. Some items may be shipped directly to you from the manufacturer, FOB from that location.

Inventoried items typically ship within 24 hours of receiving the payment. Factory-direct items ship promptly (usually within 7-10 business days) from our manufacturer’s stock, FOB point(s) as indicated. Larger items may be shipped via a trucking company and customers are encouraged to check each incoming shipment carefully before acknowledging receipt from the carrier.

Unless otherwise requested by a customer, goods will be shipped via carriers of our choice with shipping, handling, insurance, and packaging charges prepaid and added to the invoice. If you prefer to use your own shipping account, please contact customer service. We do not ship C.O.D

If you need expedited delivery, call our customer service department +27 11 462 1973. We will prepay and add shipping and handling charges to your invoice.

Customers should thoroughly inspect all items for shipping damage before accepting delivery. If damage has occurred, customer should note the extent of the damage on the freight bill and call Gear Workwear immediately. Although Gear Workwear’s responsibility for loss and damage ceases when the products are accepted for shipment by the carrier, when notified, we will file a damage claim for goods shipped via a carrier of our choice, issue credit for the damaged goods, and ship an immediate replacement. Buyer shall, at Gear Workwear’s option, return any damaged products to Gear Workwear pursuant to instructions from Gear Workwear.

All international shipments will require customer/receiver to pay any applicable duties and taxes at time of delivery. Gear Workwear does not collect international duties and/or taxes during the checkout process; and therefore the responsibility falls solely on the consumer at the time of delivery. Please note that any international shipments refused by the customer will be abandoned and not returned Gear Workwear; unless previously agreed to by Gear Workwear. ALL ABANDONED ORDERS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR A REFUND OF THE MERCHANDISE OR THE SHIPPING COSTS INCURRED. If you have any further questions, please contact our customer service department for assistance.
