Commercial Credit Terms & Conditions


Account Agreement and Terms of Sale

NOTE: The following is an overview of the wording found on the back of our Application for Credit: If any conflict is determined to exist between the language set forth in this overview and the language set forth in the executed Application for Credit, the language in the executed Application for Credit shall be controlling for all purposes.

It is understood and agreed that credit account applicants specifically consent to Ganahl Lumber investigating the applicant’s credit history and may utilize outside credit reporting services to obtain information about the applicant. Applicant further agrees to give permission to make inquiry of financial and related matters at applicant’s bank(s).

Payment Terms

Payment may be made by cash, check, electronic funds transfer, or credit card. When paying by credit card a surcharge will be assessed. These fees are used to cover charges accrued from financial institutions when processing credit card transactions. Ganahl does not profit from the surcharge. Ganahl reviews the surcharge rate periodically to ensure it aligns with the fees being charged to Ganahl. See the Ganahl credit department for current surcharge rates.

If credit is extended, I understand all invoices are due and payable at Ganahl Lumber Company on or before the 20th of the month following purchase and are past due after the 25th of the month following purchase. Prices charged are with expectation of payment being made within standard terms. Past due invoices will be subject to late payment charge of 1 1/2% of the invoice total for each month thereafter as an adjustment in the price. It is further agreed that this will not affect Ganahl's right to demand payment and take action to collect past due amounts.

Terms and Conditions of Sale

The undersigned agrees to pay all purchases according to the terms of Ganahl. No terms or conditions of purchase orders different from the terms of Ganahl will become part of any sales agreement, purchase order, or other document unless specifically approved in writing by Ganahl. No items will be accepted for return without prior approval. All returns are subject to a return charge.

Security Interest

To secure the payment of all amounts due Ganahl, the undersigned hereby grants Ganahl a security interest in all goods purchased by Buyer from Ganahl, including all accounts receivable arising from the sale of use of said goods, insurance proceeds and products thereof. The undersigned hereby agrees to execute any and all documentation requested by Ganahl to evidence and perfect this security interest including, but not limited to, a form UCC-1 Financing Statement, if requested by Ganahl. Upon default, Ganahl may exercise any and all rights and remedies provided by law, and may require the undersigned to assemble the collateral and make it available to Ganahl at any reasonable place designated by Ganahl.

Upon a change in principals or the legal form of the company, applicant will, not less that 15 days prior to the change, give written notice to the credit department of Ganahl Lumber Company. Applicant and/or its principals agree to provide to Ganahl Lumber Company updated financial information on request.
