Terms & Conditions

Property Policy & Listing Guidelines

All users must read and agree with our Terms and Conditions in order to engage in any activity on BarrelsDirect.com.

Sellers Fees
Barrels Direct will collect 5% of any transaction that Barrels Direct is in any way associated with. These fees are not included in refunds unless specifically stated and agreed upon by Barrels Direct. If Seller’s barrels sell on BarrelsDirect.com, but Seller no longer has those barrels available and never canceled the listing, the transaction will be cancelled and Seller will still be charged 5%.

Payments to BarrelsDirect.com
All orders must be paid in full when order is placed. For security, safety, and quality assurance, all payments must be made to Barrels Direct. Barrels Direct only uses secured and trusted payment processing systems.

Receiving Payments from BarrelsDirect.com
Barrels Direct will hold payments for 5 business days post barrel delivery. At that time, payment will be made for all barrels that meet the quality level. If any barrels fail to meet the quality level, payment will be made for the ones that do, and payments, refunds, or replacements for unusable barrels will be decided upon by all parties involved, as explained further in these Terms and Conditions.

Quality Levels
It is responsibility of the Seller to rate and stand behind the quality level and guarantee that their barrels meet the level of quality and condition they give them at the time of posting. Quality levels are:

  • Excellent – Aging Barrels
    Solid, tight, and suitable for aging.
  • Good – Aging Barrels
    Suitable for aging, but may require rehydration.
  • Fair – Decor/Furniture Barrels
    Water tight, but NOT suitable for aging.
  • Poor – Decor/Furniture Barrels
    NOT water tight. Not suitable for aging. Barrels may collapse, or are missing pieces.

Normal Barrel Care
Normal Barrel Care, or NBC, are industry accepted “norms” when working with barrels. NBC includes, but is not limited to, using only authorized barrel handling equipment, barrel rinsing, and the practice of using warm water to swell barrels prior to using.

Cull Barrels and Pricing
Cull barrels are barrels not useable for aging purposes. Cull barrels may consist of, but are not limited to, barrels that leak uncontrollably, are broken, infected, missing pieces, or are for any reason deemed no longer useable for any aging purpose.

Cull Barrel Pricing, or CBP, is referred to as the price Barrels Direct will pay a Seller for their barrels. CBP ranges from $50 to $100 per barrel, varies per condition, and is decided upon on a case by case basis. Unless otherwise stated, the associated shipping fees for removal of culled barrels are deducted from the CBP.

Barrel Guarantee – Buyer Responsibility
It is the responsibility of the buyer to report and provide proof of unusable barrels within 5 business days of delivery. Delivery date is based on the records of the carrier who shipped the barrels. “Proof” must be agreed upon by at least 2 parties (Buyer, Seller, and/or BarrelsDirect.com) and may consist of, but is not limited to, photographic or video evidence of why individual barrels are unusable.

Once Seller is notified of unusable barrels, they have 2 business days to respond. Seller not responding within 2 business days of notification means Seller automatically accepts CBP, and the case is handled between Buyer and Barrels Direct.

Unusable barrels
If Seller does not want to refund or replace barrels, Barrels Direct has the option (if Buyer also agrees) to refund or replace the unusable barrels. If BarrelsDirect.com refunds or replaces Buyers barrels, BarrelsDirect.com will only pay the Seller the CBP. It is the discretion of Barrels Direct to ship unusable barrels whole, loose, palletized, or knocked down.

It is the responsibility of the Buyer to notify Barrels Direct within 5 business days of the delivery date of the barrels.

In this event, the Seller first has the option of offering a full refund or replacement of barrels. If Seller offers refund or replacement, Seller then has the option of shipping the unusable barrels back to Seller, at Seller’s expense. BarrelsDirect.com fee’s will not be refunded to Seller, but Barrels Direct can coordinate shipping for Seller.

If Seller does not want to refund or replace barrels, they then agree to accept CBP for all barrels deemed unusable. Barrels will then be shipped to the nearest Barrels Direct authorized processing facility, or be resold on Barrels Direct as Cull Barrels.

Shipping Barrels
Barrels Direct will ship any barrels, whether or not they’re sold through BarrelsDirect.com, and can coordinate freight logistics for both pick up and delivery. Our barrel logistics system is capable of moving barrels, using trusted carriers, at rates that are, on average, 20% lower than other rates. When shipping through Barrels Direct, all shipments are Shipper Load/Cosignee Unload, and both parties must abide by the specific terms and conditions of the carrier. Failure to abide by the terms and conditions of Barrels Direct and the carrier may result in additional fees.
