Surplus City Liquidators Customer and Ordering Information


Due to the nature of our business and products, it is impossible for us to pre determine your exact shipping charges on most items. Our facility uses different sized boxes, different packing material, and freight company fuel surcharge fees change weekly. Several shipping agencies now base their rate on dimension weight or actual weight whichever is greater. Thus the size of the box comes into play on each and every transaction. We ask for your understanding on this process. 

Therefore, what will happen is we will then input an order which will be sent to our warehouse to pack (if you have ordered more than one item we will do our best to combine shipping to insure maximum benefit). It will then go to our shipping dept where they will contact an appropriate shipping agent to get your final charges. Please allow 3-5 business (M-F) days for a parts, 5-6 business (M-F) days for equipment to process (During extreme busy times this can by up to 10 days or more). Once your shipping charge has been calculated you will either be contacted and asked for payment or if we have your credit card on file then you will be billed for the total amount.  Any questions or concerns please contact us.

IMPORTANT: IF YOUR ITEM IS A LARGE ITEM AND IS MARKED AS GOING FREIGHT. THIS MEANS IT WILL BE SHIPPED VIA FREIGHT TRUCK/SEMI THEREFORE DO NOT MAKE A PAYMENT. PLEASE GIVE US TIME TO CONTACT A TRUCKING COMPANY FOR YOU AND THEN YOU WILL RECEIVE A REVISED INVOICE ONCE THOSE CHARGES HAVE BEEN FIGURED.
Your Freight Quote Does Not Include a Drop Tailgate Style Truck or Delivery to a Residential Address. If Either of These Apply Please Contact Us Prior to Shipping to Make Arrangements and Note There Are Additional Fees For These Services. Your Phone Number is Required for Contact Prior to Delivery Purposes. Handling Time Does Not Start Until After You Have Supplied Us with the Correct Address, a Good Phone Number and Any Related Additional Payments.

We use the Highest Quality Freight Companies and Freight Damage is Very Rare. Although Rare, Minor Dings and Scratches can Happen but will Not Harm the Operation of the Equipment. If a Minor Damage, (Dent, Ding or Scratch) is Present, Accept the Delivery but Note the Damage on the Proof of Delivery Form Prior to Signing for the Delivery and the Freight Company will Make Good on the Damages. If Major Damage, (Total Loss) is Present Do Not Accept the Delivery but Note Severe Damage and Rejected on the Proof of Delivery Form Prior to Signing. The Freight Company will Return the Shipment to Our Warehouse To Start The Claim Process.

Do NOT Sign for Items That Have NOT Been Inspected as once the Bill of Lading is Signed, You Will Own it and Remove Most or All of the Carrier's Liability Even if the Signature is from Someone Else that Received it on Your Behalf.

We know times are tough and we are willing to work with you. We ask that if there is any problem you contact us and give us ample time to investigate. Most problems can be worked out if we just communicate.

Your order will ship in appx 
3-5 business (M-F) days for a parts, 5-6 business (M-F) days for equipment once payment in full has been received (During extreme busy times this can be up to 10 days or more). Customer pick up is also available M-F 8am to 5pm and Saturday 8am to 1pm EDT at the Lebanon IN Showroom.

 GOT QUESTIONS?  

If I order who pays to have it shipped to me?
   Customers are responsible for their own freight/handling charges.  We do have accounts with several common carriers and our shipping department can arrange your shipment for you, but you will be billed at what we are charged to get your item to you plus a small handling charge.  If you would rather use your own trucking line just let us know and once your item is paid for we can send it freight collect.

I'm in a hurry- how long will it take me to get my order?
   We run on a 3-5 business (M-F) days for a parts, 5-6 business (M-F) days for equipment within our warehouse. (Order Taken, Items Pulled, Packed, Shipping Dept Gets Freight Charges, Payment Taken and Truck Pick Up Scheduled).  Then most common truck carriers state 3 to 5 business days for delivery within the United States (During extremely busy times this can be up to 10days or more).  So please give yourself at least appx 1 week.  Now as we all know rules seem to be made just to be broken, so not every order will be this way.  Some may arrive immediately and another could be several days.  All we ask is that you communicate your needs and/or flexibilities to us and we will try our best to accomodate those needs with what is within our control. Orders for expedited shipping must be received by Noon Eastern Time to be shipped within a 24 hour period and will incur an expedition fee on top of actual shipping charges.  For any order that is confirmed and buyer requests to cancel we charge a 20% restock fee.

Requirements for Purchasing Air Conditioning Units Manufactured During or Before 2023

 

Download this page

 

Beginning January 1, 2023, the Department of Energy is increasing the minimum efficiencies for central air conditioners and heat pumps (the “Energy Efficiency”). The testing procedures for determining those efficiencies are changing as well (hereafter collectively referred to as the “Regulatory Requirements”.

 

The Regulatory Requirements mean that in some parts of the US, certain types of AC equipment can no longer be sold for installation after January 1, 2023. Still others may be sold for installation provided they were manufactured prior to January 1, 2023. The Energy Efficiency information of an AC unit is available on each unit’s ‘Hangtag’ and Surplus City’s Website. Any AC unit not meeting the new Regulatory Requirements may not be installed, but may still be sold for replacement parts.

 

These changes affect the United States by ‘Region’. The Regulatory Requirements apply based on the kind of air conditioner, when the air conditioner is to be installed and in what Region.

 

The "Southwest Region" is Arizona, California, Nevada, or New Mexico.

 

The "Southeast Region" is Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories.

 

The "North Region" is the remainder of the United States.

 

For air conditioners in the North Region, the minimum Energy Efficiency increases from 13.0 to 14.0 SEER and in the South Region from 14.0 to 15.0 SEER. For 2023 the national heat pump minimum efficiency will increase from 14.0 to 15.0 SEER.

 

In 2023, all products must be rated using the DOE appendix Mi testing procedure, denoted as SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2. Ratings tested under Mi are up to 5X higher than DOE’s pre-2023 appendix M test procedure (SEER, EER, HSPF).

 

The new SEER2 ratings are lower, and the minimum efficiencies are reduced to account for the more difficult test procedures.

 


North Region SEER2 Regulations

For the North region, compliance will be determined by each system's manufacturing date. Specifically, new SEER2 requirements for this region will include:

  • SEER2 rating of at least 13.4 for all AC units and Single Packaged Products
  • SEER2 rating of at least 14.3 for Heat Pumps

 

AC systems, heat pumps (“HP”), and Single-Packaged Products (“SPP”) manufactured before January 1, 2023, may still be installed and sold in the North region. All units manufactured after this date must meet new SEER2 Regulatory Requirements.

 


Southeast Region SEER2 Regulations

The Southeast Region, includes Texas, Tennessee, and Florida, and has its own SEER2 requirements. These include:

  • SEER2 rating of at least 14.3 for all residential central air systems below 45,000 BTU
  • SEER2 rating of at least 13.8 for all residential central air systems 45,000 BTU and above
  • SEER2 rating of at least 14.3 for all heat pumps

 

Much like in the Southwest region, systems that do not meet these standards cannot be sold (except for parts) or installed in the Southeast Region after January 1, 2023, if they do not meet these Regulatory Requirements.

 


Southwest Region SEER2 Regulations

The Southwest Region is the smallest in the country, consisting of: California, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. In this region, SEER2 requirements are as follows:

  • SEER2 rating of at least 14.3 for all residential central air systems below 45,000 BTU
  • SEER2 rating of at least 13.8 for all residential central air systems 45,000 BTU and above
  • SEER2 rating of at least 14.3 for all heat pumps

 

Unlike the North region, equipment that does not meet these new Regulatory Requirements by January 1, 2023, cannot be sold (except for use as parts) or installed in this region — regardless of the manufacturing date.

 


NOTE: *SEER, EER, and HSPF values shown are based on the current test procedure and are for reference only. Beginning January 2023, products must comply with the SEER2, EER2 and HSPF2 values developed using 2023 test procedures.
