MPS terms & policy


We require claims of any nature––shortages, damages, incorrect titles, tracers, etc.––to be placed within 60 days from the actual billing date shown on the invoice. Claims after this date will be denied.


All deductions in payments should reference actual credit memo number and be accompanied by a complete explanation, which will allow us to resolve the deduction in a timely manner.
