Residential Deliveries

Free Shipping via UPS SurePost is an economy, residential, ground service. This service combines the consistency and reliability of the UPS Ground network with final delivery typically provided by the U.S. Postal Service. If you wish for your order to go through UPS for delivery, select UPS Ground at checkout.

Freight companies could charge an additional fee on top of the original freight charge if delivering to a residence. Each freight carrier has its own definitions for residential delivery.

Freight

BH-USA will make every effort possible to find the most cost-effective freight shipping method for your order. The customer is financially responsible for all shipping and handling charges of their order. BH-USA will select from one of its preferred freight carriers to ship your order unless otherwise specified in writing.

The customer must work with the freight carrier for delivery. Two options; pick up at the terminal or deliver to a location. Freight carriers will not unload and drop freight at the door like UPS or USPS. The freight carrier will make every effort to arrange delivery with the homeowner. If the customer is uncompliant with the freight carrier, the order will be returned to BH-USA. The purchaser will be charged for all freight costs and an additional 20% restock fee.

BH-USA is in no way responsible for any type of issues with the delivery of freight such as gates, neighborhoods that do not allow large trucks, inaccessible roads, homeowner being out of town, or any other issue that might hinder the delivery of the freight.

BH-USA cannot promise any special requests from a customer regarding freight, this must be handled between you and the freight company. If you are concerned that a large truck cannot deliver to your address we suggest not ordering this item until you have made arrangements to have it shipped to a commercial address.

Freight Quotes

We are here to help if you need a freight quote. BH-USA will quote based on information supplied by the customer at the time of the quote.

BH-USA will not be held responsible for this quote if unforeseen charges are applied. Such charges could be a residential delivery charge, drop gate, missed delivery attempts, or other types of charges. If this happens, BH-USA will bill the customer for the additional charges with the payment method used to place the order. BH-USA reserves the right to run the credit card provided again for the additional freight charges.

Due to the fluctuation of fuel costs, all quotes are considered an estimate. Charges could be higher than previously quoted on the order. The customer is responsible for the cost difference.

Receiving a Freight Shipment

Signing the delivery ticket as received is a contractual agreement transferring ownership of the shipment from BH-USA to the signee.

BEFORE you sign the delivery ticket make sure delivery is complete and no visible damages are present. If items are missing or damaged either notate this on the delivery ticket. Have the delivery driver sign the notation or refuse the shipment.

If the shipment is delivered and signed it is complete delivery. Then it is understood by BH-USA that the shipment arrived complete with no damage or issues.

Filing a Claim

BH-USA will help with the claim process. It is the responsibility of the customer to file the claim with the shipping carrier. BH-USA is not responsible for replacing any missing item that was lost in transit and signed as received by the customer. Once a claim is approved by the shipping carrier, BH-USA will send a replacement item.

Please note that most shipping carriers will not approve a claim if the customer has signed received it in full. BH-USA is not responsible if an unauthorized person signed for the shipment with missing or incomplete items.

Incorrect Order Shipped

If BH-USA is at fault for shipping the wrong item or amount, we will reship the item(s) at our own expense. The correction will process like other orders and follow standard BH-USA shipping procedures.

Claims for shortages or unseen damages MUST be made within 10 days of receipt of shipment.

BH-USA will arrange the wrong item(s) return at our expense. If the wrong item is not returned within 10 days of the claim, the customer will be billed for the item.

BH-USA reserves the right to select a carrier for any shipment that qualifies for prepaid freight. BH-USA will not prepay overnight, next-day air, second-day air or priority shipments regardless of the situation.

Call Tags

Only one call tag issued when picking up items sent by mistake. The customer will be billed for additional call tags. Returns or warranties will not be issued a call tag.

Labor & Time Lost

BH-USA is not responsible for any labor or time lost by a company due to faulty equipment, incorrect shipments, lost shipments, backorders, or other issues that might be caused by BH-USA or the freight carriers.

Pre-Cut 316 Stainless Steel Cable

The Pre-Cut 316 Stainless Steel Cable is a 7 x 19 strand aircraft cable. Factory cut to specific boat lift lengths. Moderate corrosion resistance & remains ductile over long periods running over sheaves.

Compounding is required for boats weighing over 6,000 lbs. Safety factor and rating systems are based on the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) recommendations. The same applies to overhead cranes.

  • Used best in saltwater applications.
  • Most commonly used cable for boat lifts.
  • Do not rely on “Breaking Strength” when rating a cable.

Aircraft Cable

The diameter of aircraft cable is determined by multiplying the number of wires in each strand by the number of strands. “7 x 19” means that there are seven 7 strands with each strand having 19 wires. This technology provides the most flexibility in aircraft cables.

In boat lift applications, BH-USA recommends 7×19 aircraft cables. Consider at least a 5:1 safety factor when calculating working loads. For boat lifts, use a minimum of 4 drops. Test certificates for all cables sold by BH-USA are available upon request.

It is not recommended to use 7 x 19 aircraft cable for aircraft controls. 7 x 19 aircraft cable should never be used for lifting humans.

Safe Working Load vs. Minimum Breaking Strength

When selecting wire rope, it is crucial to use the Safe Working Load (SWL) of the cable rather than the breaking strength. Breaking strength is just that, it’s the amount of force a newly woven wire rope can withstand under perfect conditions, where if you added one more pound, the rope would snap!

Why aren’t we using breaking strength?

Testing the breaking strength of wire rope was performed on a machine that isolates just the wire rope so that the end connections do not affect the breaking strength. As a system, wire ropes include the wire rope itself as well as the end connections that work together dynamically. Because they must bend around cables and sheaves, they can only be as strong as their weakest link. Minimum breaking strength refers to a wire rope’s maximum tension that it can sustain under ideal circumstances, without accounting for the other factors that compromise the system’s strength.

What is the reason behind the low rating?

The Safe Working Load includes a safety factor (SF) for all the things that can happen to wire rope during its useful life which may reduce its breaking strength. ASME recommends a safety factor for this type of equipment. This is so that the lift can still safely support the load if at least one or more factors working to break the wire rope are present. Wire ropes deteriorate over time, lowering their breaking strength as they lose their safety factor.

In order to find out what size wire rope is required for your lift, you must first calculate the total weight to be lifted, including the “wet” weight of the boat, the maximum cargo that can be loaded into the boat, and the weight of the lifting cradle.

  • Boat
  • Fuel
  • Water (Ballast, live well, potable, etc.)
  • Any cargo items in the boat (Note: There should never be people in the boat while being lifted.)
  • Boat cradle and bunks

Typically, the weight specified by a boat manufacturer refers to its “dry” weight. In order to calculate the “wet” weight, you must include the fuel weight- (6.30 lb/US gal for gasoline and 6.94 for diesel), the water weight (8.34 lb/US gal) that may ever be present in the boat, and the estimated weight of possible cargo (i.e., coolers, skis, etc.).

DO NOT LIFT HUMANS

Products cannot operate indefinitely at their rated capacity. The wire rope and cable must be regularly inspected for any deterioration that may result in loss of strength. It is the user’s responsibility to assess whether further usage of the rope will pose a safety hazard. Regularly lubricate operating ropes. Avoid getting under any raised loads and stay away from the force of any load.

AVOID SHOCK LOADS

Due to the unpredictable circumstances that occur after a purchase of this cable, BH-USA cannot warranty or be held responsible for the cable after the purchase date. A working load limit for each application must be determined by the ultimate user. There are many factors to consider, among them, but not limited to, the load applied, the speed of operation, the acceleration or deceleration, the length of the rope or cable, shock loads, abrasion, corrosion, the number, size, condition, and position of drums and sheaves, and the danger to life and property if a rope or cable breaks. The storage, use, maintenance, and lubrication of wire ropes and cables must comply with normal safety standards; and the equipment must be designed, maintained, and operated correctly. Conduct regular inspections.

Avoid kinking, knotting, or crushing. Never use wire rope made or sold by BH-USA to lift humans.
