Terms & Conditions
Roche Bros. Customer Agreement
This Agreement (the "Agreement") is an agreement between you and Roche Bros. ("Roche Bros.") that states the terms and conditions under which you may use the Site and receive Roche Bros. service, which includes processing and delivery of product orders ("Roche Bros. Service"). Your use of Roche Bros. Service and the Site constitutes your agreement to the terms and conditions set forth below.
Ordering and Delivery
Orders are available for delivery six days a week (no service on Tuesday or Friday depending on your location) during the following time periods: noon – 2pm, 3pm – 5pm and 6pm – 8:30pm. For same day delivery, orders must be placed at least four hours prior to the beginning of the desired delivery period (pending availability).
Available delivery time periods and associated service fees will be shown as you proceed through the ordering process. You can place your order anytime several weeks before your delivery date. You may cancel via the “My Account” section of the Site . Note that updated orders are subject to price changes and a change of a delivery date may not guarantee the availability of your desired items. Cancellation of orders less than four hours prior to a scheduled delivery will result in a Restocking Fee. This fee will be $9.95 for all orders. These fees will be charged to your credit card on file.
Receipt of Goods
To receive delivery, you or a designated recipient (18 years or older) must be available in person (someone at least 21 years old with proper identification for delivery of alcohol and/or tobacco). This designated recipient can accept your goods when you are not present at the time you had selected for delivery and shall accept the goods under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself and must agree to sign for delivery. Anyone at the delivery address who receives the delivery is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. If neither you, nor your designated recipient is present during your selected delivery window, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact you and reschedule delivery. In some cases there will be a redelivery fee of $9.95. If we are unable to redeliver the order to you for any reason, the order will be canceled and you will be charged the restocking fees as noted in the section above.
Your order will arrive with an invoice that will list all of the items you have received and were billed for. If you have a question with your order, please call Customer Service at the phone number listed on the website.
Alcohol Delivery Policy
Because Roche Bros. is committed to providing responsible service to our customers, we follow all applicable state and federal regulations about the sale and delivery of alcohol.
· Someone must be at home to approve and sign for any Beer & Wine delivery.
· The person signing for the order must be at least 21 years of age, with valid Massachusetts ID.
· Delivery Driver will check for valid Massachusetts ID before order is delivered to home or business.
· We do not deliver alcohol to schools or group homes.
· Schools in our delivery area should provide Roche Bros. address listing of all campus buildings and residence halls, which will be restricted from alcohol delivery. “Do Not Deliver List”
· This listing should be updated annually by school administration.
No one under 21 years of age may place or receive an order from Roche Bros. that includes beer or wine. Our Delivery Drivers check identification of all customers receiving alcohol. If a qualified adult is not available to approve and sign for delivery of Beer & Wine items, the Delivery Driver will remove those items from the order. Your account will be credited for the full amount of any items you do not receive and a $9.95 restocking fee will be assessed. If this results in a balance due, your account will be charged.
If an order containing alcohol is on the “Do Not Deliver List”, customer will be notified before delivery and alcoholic items will not be selected for delivery.
Also, our Delivery Drivers have discretion with regard to the delivery of alcohol. If a Delivery Driver suspects that a person over 21 is accepting the delivery of alcohol for consumption by a minor, the Delivery Driver may refuse to deliver the alcohol.
In the case of inclement weather or other circumstances beyond our control, it may be necessary to make adjustments to our delivery schedule, which may cause us to suspend chosen delivery dates and times. If we expect a delay outside of the selected delivery period, our Customer Service representative may call or email you to let you know the status of your delivery time. We will deliver your order the first possible moment the conditions permit. If your designated delivery location or day is inaccessible, rendering us unable to make the delivery, we will contact you to determine the best alternate location and/or date.
Price and Availability
Pricing by Weight
For certain items that are sold by the pound and cut, prepared or packaged and/or sold individually, the per item price you see in your shopping cart for such items is based on an estimated weight. The final price of these items will be based on the same price per pound/ounce indicated upon completion of checkout, but the actual price is determined once we have prepared and weighed your order, and will appear on the invoice you receive at the time of delivery. You always pay the true price for the actual weight of your products.
Availability of Perishable Items
Given the perishable nature of our products and our goal to always provide fresh, high-quality products, from time to time certain products may be unavailable due to market conditions beyond our control or to quality that is below our standards. Therefore, we reserve the right to limit the quantity of a particular product that you may order. Once you complete checkout, your price is guaranteed unless you placed an order for an item where we have inadvertently listed the incorrect price.
Credit and certain debit cards are the only form of payment accepted by the Service. Your credit card will be charged the actual cost that is determined after preparing and weighing your order. Roche Bros. will not process orders that use an incorrect, expired, or over-the-limit credit card. We will make our best efforts to contact you if this occurs. However, in the event such an order is processed, Roche Bros. reserves the right to collect funds for any uncollected transactions owed to it.
If you fail to pay any costs or charges when due or if a redelivery fee or restocking fee is imposed, Roche Bros. may charge such amount directly to the credit card identified in your Customer Account Information and Roche Bros. may suspend or terminate your access to the Service. You shall be responsible and liable for any costs, including attorneys’ costs and collection costs, that Roche Bros. may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you. Your right to use the Service is subject to limits established by Roche Bros. and/or by your credit card issuer.
