What happens when I register?
We take your data in your customer account and you will receive a customer number. If you are already our customer, we associate your ID with your login information (username, password). But we also store other important information, such as VAT, delivery and payment or delivery address if it is different from your billing address. This is particularly important for customers outside the European Union, because we have to issue the invoice in accordance with the customs regulations for these customers.

Is there an order form?
Yes, but it is not required! In our mailings we always also add a form. You can use it, but you do not need to. Please always order with the FERRO-TRAIN order number.
Do I have to order from FERRO-TRAIN?
Not necessarily! You can order and buy FERRO-TRAIN products with few exceptions directly from FERRO-TRAIN. We also sell our models at numerous fairs and exhibitions. The dates can be found under Fairs.
What happens after I order?
Generally, we will send you an advance (proforma) invoice for the stored items and/or an order confirmation, if the items are not in stock yet. When a reserved item is available, we will send you an advance (proforma) invoice.
Why should I order a model that is not available anymore?
Thus, it is reserved for you! We deliver the finished models in the order in which orders arrive, i.e. the orders received first are delivered first. If not enough models are available for all customers, we will inform the customers in the later rows about whether and when the models are available.
Is a pre-order binding?No, it is only a reservation! If you do not want to buy a pre-ordered model, please let us know without giving reasons. The order will then be deleted immediately.
At FERRO-TRAIN there are no minimum orders, unless you are a retailer (the terms are only available after registration).
We charge for each delivery in Austria € 6, -, in the EU € 16,-, shipping charges (packing, shipping, insurance). For bulky items, special shipping methods (courier service) or destinations outside Europe, we will charge the shipping fees to reflect the actual costs. The shipping charges can be found on the advance (proforma) invoice.
When does FERRO-TRAIN deliver?
As a rule, goods are delivered on the same or next business day if the goods are in stock. See also Order.
How does FERRO-TRAIN deliver?
Usually by post after pre-payment! We can, however, also send the goods to you against COD (Cash on Delivery). In this case, a delivery fee will be charged! Also deliveries to a delivery address or by parcel service are possible!
How is the product packaged?
With great care and to check that all models are in order and complete. We ship countless packages every year - damage as good as never occurs!
Is the delivery insured?
In general, yes! The goods sent as a package are fully insured. If you insist on a (letter) fee for smaller shipments, we can also send the goods uninsured.
What to do in case of damage?
Please inspect the goods immediately upon receipt, especially if you notice that a shipment arrives externally damaged. Please keep the packaging in any case, including packaging material. You have one week to claim the case of damage with the shipper (usually the post office). Therefore, it is unfortunately necessary, to show the damaged goods along with the packaging and the packaging material. Without the damage report with the supplier you cannot make a warranty claim! Send us back the damaged goods with a copy of the damage report and the bill. That is how we can check your warranty!
What does FERRO-TRAIN do in case of damage?
It depends on the nature and extent of the damage, but at least we immediately look at your case and choose - at our discretion - the cheapest solution for all parties. Should a model be beyond repair and we cannot provide a replacement model within reasonable time, you will receive a credit or refund. We apologize for the inconvenience!
When and how do I pay FERRO-TRAIN models?
We will send you an advance (proforma) invoice, on which you will find our bank details and account number.
How quickly do I have to pay the Pro-Forma Invoice?
Usually the goods ordered are reserved two weeks for you. Please let us know if we should extend this period for you!
What about the bank charges?
Please ensure that FERRO-TRAIN receives the full amount and instruct your bank accordingly. In the European Union, a free of charge transfer (so-called EURO - transfer) with indication of BIC and IBAN is possible. BIC and IBAN of FERRO-TRAIN can be found on the Pro-Forma Invoice.
Can I pay by credit card?
Yes! We accept VISA, EURO/MASTERCARD. Please send the card number and expiration date. For safety reasons, either by fax +43 (1) 802 03 85-15, or two emails (number in the first email, expiration date in the second mail), or call us to tell us the number. We will register your number on your customer account, so you do not need to send the credit card number next time. If you do not wish to register your credit card number, please let us know and we will respect your wish.
