PICK UP ORDER FROM GRATZ WAREHOUSE
An administrative fee is placed on all pick up charges. Also, Philadelphia requires we charge an 8% tax on orders pick up from our warehouse.
DEMO EQUIPMENT / ACCESSORIES
The DEMO equipment will be used during the event and pick up would be a designated time and is usually on the last day of the event. Pick up is usually directly from the Event site and is the sole responsibility of the person who purchased to make all arrangements to independently pick up the equipment at the designated time that will be provided by the host of the event.
TRACKING YOUR ORDER
At our warehouse, tracking numbers are assigned to packages almost immediately and generally appear on our website along with your order information. However, it may take up to 48 hours or longer before the package is checked into the carrier's tracking system. That means even though your package has already shipped from our warehouse and is on its way to you, the carrier may not be able to provide any information about your package for up to 48 hours or more. Orders placed on www.pilates-gratz.com may be delivered by one of several different carriers and shipping methods. Therefore, tracking availability may vary depending on the type of item you purchased, the shipping method you selected during Checkout, and the carrier that is delivering your item(s).
