Steel Reel Policy

Steel reels are often required for transportation and storage of product. Each reel has an associated charge.

1. Reels are to be returned based on terms on invoice. Upon reel return within stated terms, a credit will be issued for the amount of the original reel invoice – including sales tax, if applicable. If the reel is not returned within terms stated on invoice of the original shipment, the customer will forfeit any future credit for the reel. If the reel invoice is not paid, the invoice will become delinquent on the customer’s account.

2. Reels should be returned in good condition. Normal wear is expected; charges are made only for “exceptional damage” (that which makes the reel unusable through abuse or unauthorized modifications) as determined by Southwire.

3. Prompt notification of reels available for return should be given to Southwire’s Steel Reel Manager at swreels@southwire.com, www.southwire.com/reels, or using Southwire’s reel return app available for smart phone use. Phone calls do not provide adequate means for verification of return requests, and therefore are not a permissible method for making such requests. The given methods provide a verification email that should be retained by the customer should the need arise to confirm the date of initial return requests.

Notifications should specify:

  a. Original consignee
  b. Date shipped
  c. Reel invoice number
  d. Serial numbers of reels to be returned

4. No reels should be returned without prior consent from Southwire. Upon consenting to the return, Southwire will provide customer with complete shipping instructions. Charges incurred over and above the least-cost method of return (as determined by Southwire) by unauthorized return shipments may be charged to the customer.

5. To accommodate larger projects or conductor shipments in advance of project start, a reel charge deferral period may be negotiated at time of quotation. The above-described 90- day term would start at the end of the agreed upon deferral period rather than the initial ship date. Requests for a deferral or an extension to an existing deferral after the order has been processed must be made in writing and will be reviewed by Southwire in consideration of granting the request.

6. Processing reel return requests and accepting the reel return does not constitute, and should not be viewed by the customer, as a guarantee that the reel will be credited if the 90-day period has lapsed.
