Pricing

Merchandise prices and specifications are subject to change without notice.  Typographic, photographic and/or descriptive errors are subject to correction.  Some prices include minimum order fees, please see shipping information for more details about each manufacturer's minimum order fee.


Adjustments

We offer a one-time price adjustment if an item is marked down within fourteen (14) days of the date on your purchase. To obtain a price adjustment on an online purchase, you must call 1-(800)-453-0349 and select option 4, or send us an email message at info@BuyMBS.com within the fourteen (14) day window. Include your order number in your email message. If you are within the deadline, we'll refund you the difference in your original form of payment.

Price adjustments are not available for items designated as Clearance, Value of the Day or Special Buy; for items purchased up to seven days before Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday or Cyber Week.


In Store Vs. Online Pricing

Our goal is to offer the best possible prices on BuyMBS.com as well as in our MBS Branch Locations. Sometimes an online price will not match a price that is offered at your local branch. The local price may require additional handling, may not be available or may have other factors that influence the price difference from the online price. Please Note: Prices shown on BuyMBS.com are online prices only. Your local MBS Branch may not honor online pricing found on BuyMBS.com. If you wish to purchase an item at your local store, the in-store pricing will apply.


Payment Options

We accept Visa and Mastercard (credit & debit), American Express and Discover, as well as Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) from your checking or savings account.  Please be aware that on occasions your credit card may decline not because your funds are unavailable but because your issuing bank has set daily limitations on transactions.  This is for your protection.  If this occurs it may be necessary for you to call your bank or credit card company to authorize a transaction, or we can process your payment over several days.


Shipping Information

Many products on the website qualify for Free Shipping* in the continental 48 United States. Products can be shipped UPS, FedEx, USPS, or common freight carrier, based on item and/or quantity ordered. All shipments are completed by a 3rd party shipper. Please note that certain locations may incur an additional shipping surcharge in metropolitan areas or a ferry charge for islands. These may be applicable in the states of MA, FL, MI, WA, NY, SC, NC, but are not limited to this list and are at the discretion of the carrier. To avoid this surcharge, you may request to pick your items up at the nearest freight terminal (not on the island). We will contact you as soon as possible, if there are any additional charges for your order. MBS does not ship out of the United States at this time.

*In our efforts to offer the lowest delivered pricing on the site, some select brands have purchase minimums to qualify for Free Shipping. Minimum requirements and shipping costs will vary by manufacturer. Brands without a purchase minimum will qualify for FREE SHIPPING regardless of price or quantity.

Sales Tax

 

Why does your site charge tax in states that you do not have a branch location? 

Modern Builders Supply, Inc. has three business units - a distribution business with 27 distribution centers plus 1 Central Distribution hub.  We distribute building products in the following states:  Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, Indiana and Kentucky.  We also manufacture under the brand name of Polaris Windows & Doors, which produces vinyl windows, steel and fiberglass entry doors, that we sell in 23 states.

Because we sell and deliver products outside of our branch network in the additional states listed below, we have what is called nexus in those states. Nexus requires by law, Modern Builders Supply, Inc. to collect sales taxes in those states for our third business unit - our Online Store.

Delivery Addresses

Unfortunately, Modern Builders Supply Inc. is unable to deliver products to APO/FPO addresses.

If your shipment quote has any of the fees above, you may be contacted prior to shipment so that we may process payment to complete the order.
