B. Order Processing
Upon completing your order online, you will receive an automatic email verifying your order has been received. This email does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.
Upon your initial online order, we place an authorization hold for the full order amount on your credit. Your credit card is not charged until we confirm we can fulfill your order. New orders will be confirmed and processed within 24-72 business hours. Otherwise, the credit card authorization hold will be removed and your order will be cancelled upon notification.
Items in stock usually ship on the next business day. If we need to order the item directly from a third party manufacturer, we will notify you of the expected ship date and your shipping method will take place from that date. If your item is not in stock and for some reason we cannot order it directly from the manufacturer, we will notify you and give you other options to choose from or cancel your order at no charge.
Lastly, you will be sent a shipped email with a tracking number for your package. It is important to note that shipping takes place from the date we have your item ready, not from the date you place the order.
Ground shipping within the Continental United States is free for all orders of $150 or more. Other shipping options are calculated at checkout based on your shipping address, quantities and weight. International shipping is done through FedEx. Customers are responsible for customs, duties, or any other charges related to international shipping.Some orders can be more than charged during the online payment process and in those instances we will let you know of any additional shipping charges before we send your order.
Once your order has been placed it will be processed within 24-72 business hours. It is important to note that shipping takes place from the date we confirm your item is ready for shipping, not from the date you place the order. Items in stock usually ship on the next business day. Special orders will require additional time to receive based upon availability.
