5. Storage Fee: At Bay State Surplus we strive to provide efficient and reliable services to our valued customers. As part of our commitment to maintaining a streamlined workflow within our premises, we have implemented the following policy regarding firearms left in our shop for an extended period.
A. Storage Fee:
If any firearm is left in our store for a duration exceeding two weeks, a storage fee of $15 per week will be applicable. This fee is intended to cover the costs associated with securing and maintaining the firearm during the extended storage period.
The storage fee mentioned above does not apply in cases where the firearm was already planned to be in our possession for more than two weeks for services such as gunsmithing or custom modifications.
Customers will be informed in writing of the impending storage fee when the firearm remains in our shop beyond the initial two-week period. We will provide a courtesy reminder to ensure transparency and give sufficient notice before implementing any charges.
Storage fees will be accumulated and due upon the customer's retrieval of the firearm. All storage fees must be settled before the firearm is released.
Please note that this storage fee policy is implemented to ensure efficient utilization of our limited storage space and provide better service to all
