and made the payment for shipping and product(s), the order will be shipped.
Shipments to countries outside the US will
have their delivery options evaluated on an order-by-order basis. A customer service representative will e-mail each customer the delivery
methods and shipping rates available for their country, insurance will be included upon the request of the customer.
Once we know which service you want to use we would need to implement your shipping cost into the checkout process.
we would then notify you by email that you can continue with the checkout process to complete your purchase.
You will need to sign in to complete your order, once you are signed in you will see a "request cart" box (this box only appears when a
customer has a pending request quote) just below the "shopping cart" box on the right column.
At that point you can then click on the checkout link above the right column. That will take you to the check out screen. You will be able to
pay for your shipping charge there.
Once the customer has made the payment for shipping and if requested insurance, the order will be shipped.
Shipping estimates will not include any customs fees, duties, brokerage fees, taxes, etc. of your respective country which
is the responsibility of the customer. If a shipment is returned due to a refusal to pay the above fees when the
package is presented, the customer will be responsible for restocking charges incurred, including all customs and
shipping fees to return the shipment, which will be deducted from any refund to the customer.
While we are happy to allow for a holding period of time between your purchase and payment of your shipping we are not a
storage warehouse and expect you to complete your order in a reasonable amount of time. The period of time to hold purchases
before shipping shall be 31 days at which time you will be given the opportunity to:
1) Complete the purchase by paying the
shipping charge of choice.
2) Ask for a refund of purchase. On these refunds there will be a 25% restocking charge.
3) Ask for extension of time which will or will not be granted at management discretion. This option may involve a nominal fee agreed upon
by both parties.

CLAIMS FOR DAMAGE - Procedure and Policy:
Return to top
We inspect all of our merchandise prior to shipping and pack with Extreme Care. Unfortunately damage can happen during shipment, although not that often when you think about how many packages are shipped everyday.
In spite of our efforts, you might at some time end up with something that was damaged during shipment. Simply follow these procedures and you will have the best chance for things to complete quickly:
1.) Do not throw Anything away! Save all of the packing materials, including the box.
2.) The postal services, UPS, FedEx etc. have taken the responsibility to deliver your parcel in the same mint condition as it left our warehouse. If your item(s) were damaged, then the Carriers Service will cover the damage to your insured investment. NOTIFY US IMMEDIATELY should you have any damage to ANY of your parcels, by ANY CARRIER.
3.) After the inspection, decide whether you will want this item replaced or a refund from the Insurance Company. If you want a replacement from us, the Insurance Company will send the refund for the merchandise damaged to us. If you DO NOT want your item replaced, then check the box to have the refund sent to you.
Our preference is that you have the refund sent to you. You may re-order the item when you are ready.
4.) We receive the information from the Insurance Co., complete our portion, then send it back. They complete the refund.
5.) The process is quite simple. We hope you never have to go through this but rest assured that we will work to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. Most of the time will be waiting for paper work to get processed.
