Should the difference be greater than 15% we will contact you via email for approval prior to processing your order. Items marked free shipping applies to standard ground shipping within the continental US only.  Additional charges apply for expediting your order or if lift gate is needed. All shipments are delivered curbside only and do not include inside delivery, un-packaging or installation. Feel free to contact us if you need any extra shipping options.  Please be prepared to accept your delivery with personnel or machinery based on the type of delivery you are expecting.  If you don’t have a dock or forklift we suggest choosing liftgate delivery.

Canceling/Modifying an Order – Please contact us at 888-917-7355 immediately to discuss your options for canceling or modifying your order.  If your order hasn’t been shipped yet, we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee to cover expenses incurred processing your order.  Once your order is shipped you can’t cancel your order.  All orders placed that ship directly from the manufacturer are not cancellable.

All items returned will receive store credit only.

Damaged/Missing Items – Please contact us at 888-917-7355 immediately if there is a problem with your shipment due to damaged or missing items.  We check all items for damage prior to all shipments leaving our facility.  Some items may be shipped directly from the manufacturer.  Unfortunately Lauro Restaurant Equipment is not liable for orders damaged in transit.  Make sure when you receive your shipment you immediately:

  • Inspect all items for any damages prior to signing any documents
  • Note any visible damages on delivery receipt/bill of lading before signing
  • Save your copy of the Delivery Receipt/Bill of Lading
  • Take clear photos of any damaged items
  • Save the damaged packaging materials for inspection from the freight carrier


Once you sign for the delivery you are taking responsibility and ownership for the shipment in the condition noted.  You are responsible to deal with any issues relating to shipping directly with the shipper, however we will do our best to assist you in any way we can.

Charges and Authorizations

You will receive payment confirmation within 1 business day of placing your order. When you place a secure order on our site, an authorization is placed on your funds in the amount of your order. An authorization is a communication from your bank to our payment system letting us know your card is valid and the required funds are available.

Sales Tax – Laws regarding the collection of sales tax vary by location and undergo frequent change in content as well as interpretation by governmental agencies. Lauro Restaurant Equipment will always make every effort to fully comply with the law and governmental regulations. It is our understandings at this time that customers, whether business or individual, bear the responsibility of reporting purchases that are shipped across state lines and to pay the state and any applicable local sales taxes as per their local laws and regulations. Lauro Restaurant Equipment is registered in and conducts business within the state of Florida, and therefore collects sales tax for orders billed or shipped within the state of Florida.

Organizations with current and valid sales tax exemptions may request an exemption for sales tax collection by speaking with customer service and providing a copy of required documentation. Sales tax laws and regulations apply to all businesses and individuals within the United States. Online businesses that advertise "No Sales Tax" may not fully understand the sales tax laws, or may be misleading their customers whether intentional or not.

Some products are shipped direct from the manufacturer to the customer by Lauro Restaurant Equipment. Some manufacturer's sales agreements require that sales tax be collected on any products they ship direct to the customer in certain states. Examples include but are not limited to Blodgett Oven requiring sales tax collection for products shipped direct within the 15 states that Blodgett has manufacturing or office space in.

Lauro Restaurant Equipment does not make the tax law, or set the sales tax collection requirements of our suppliers. Sales tax for shipments within the state of Florida should show sales tax on the automatically generated Invoice. Sales tax for shipments outside the state of Florida will not show on the automatically generated Invoice, but will be collected if required
