Shipping Information

America's Premier Bolex Dealer

Shipping will be calculated at the checkout based on your ship-to location. Our normal shipping is through UPS or USPS (Postal). We consider this to be one of the most efficient ways to ship at a somewhat reasonable rate. All shipments will be well packed and fully insured. You will be responsible for furnishing an accurate address. Post Office Boxes are not acceptable for UPS shipping but are OK for USPS.

If items shipped through UPS are damaged or lost due to shipping, the customer will be responsible for saving all packing materials, contacting UPS regarding the claim, and collecting the insurance amount.  Chambless Cine Equipment will be responsible for providing an over-the-phone damage evaluation, the insurance claim amount, and the tracking number for the lost or damaged items.  All items including but not limited to lost or damaged film will only be insured for the equivalent replacement cost of that item.  Production costs will not be covered.

We do use U.S. Postal (USPS) Priority with Delivery Confirmation. Larger packages vary based on zone and weight. We can ship First Class postal for VERY light weight packages (YOUR CHOICE).

MINIMUM SHIPPING AND HANDLING (UPS). Due to 2020 rate increases by UPS, we will need to adjust some, since their increases will be worldwide, surcharges and fuel surcharges, which they adjust continually; however, we will stay as low as we can. Remember, these are MINIMUM or base charges.  Weight, Zone, Residence or Commercial address and Insurance: all these factors will determine charges. Thanks for understanding!

UPS Commercial Addresses Cost Less than Residential Addresses. Weight and insurance charges may increase these minimum charges accordingly. There is a Delivery Area Surcharge for many addresses it can be either $3.00 for commercial addresses or $4.00 for residential addresses. There is also a percentage charge for fuel on all ground and air shipments, changes  based on current fuel charge. We charge each package based on current UPS charge. Remember we charge exact charges plus our handling fee.

Chambless Cine Equipment normally does not offer FedEx service unless your customer account number is supplied.  FedEx charges a $10.00 pick-up fee. An additional $5.00 will be charged for packing, labor and supplies on domestic orders; $15.00 or more, on International orders. 

Any other method of shipping will be at customer's own risk.
