We will, in good faith, attempt to meet estimated delivery dates, but BAPI does not accept responsibility for delays resulting from circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

Back Orders

BAPI ships complete orders whenever possible to keep freight charges to a minimum. In the event that an order cannot be completely filled as scheduled, BAPI will contact the customer with information regarding the delay and advise a new ship date whenever possible. At that time a customer may elect to accept a partial shipment. Back orders will be shipped as soon as possible.
