Freight & Handling Policy!

We are well aware of your concern about freight and handling charges.

You can be assured that we don't make a profit on freight. Our 10% or less mark up on postage covers all packaging materials, and transporting from our suppliers.

Our history will verify that shipping and handling fees are fair and as low as possible. Your invoice will give you the amount of your order including all shipping charges. don't send enough money on freight, we will mail you a note requesting an additional payment. Please pay this quickly, as we reserve the right to hold future shipments if this is not paid.
Over payments on freight will usually be credited in our computer for your next order - unless you request otherwise.

Our computerized scales now tell our packing department the least expensive way to send your merchandise. For most freight the choice will be between UPS, Federal Express, or U.S. Mail. We then pass the savings on to you. We're out to keep you as our customer. Let our high volume, lower freight discounts save you money with each order.

We do not want you to feel you were over charged on freight to make up for our competitive prices! We want you back as a repeat customer, so we have sharpened our pencils and created a policy that you will like. It's easy! We charge you the actual freight charges! ($3.00 minimum). No longer do you have a $30.00 shipping cost from a chart when your $350.00 part weighs only 5 pounds. We will absorb the cost of packing materials unless we must build a special box or crate. The handling charges are on us!

How Shipped...

The majority of items are sent United Parcel Service (UPS) with each parcel insured up to $100 at no extra cost.

Our truck lines for heavier or oversize items are usually by a seperate division of UPS.

The US Postal service is used for most lighter weight boxes...Their lower rates save your freight expense!.


Overseas orders are usually sent by less expensive US mail or a specialized air freight company that will be competitively priced.

For an extra fee, we offer next day, second day, and third day delivery.
If you ask, even a UPS Saturday delivery can be arranged.
Just tell us this requirement when you place your order.

Truck Line Orders...

All large items that must be shipped truck line must be prepaid.
In addition, a crating or boxing charge may be added to your order if items are very heavy and require special handling.
Remember, shipping to a commercial address rather than your home always lowers your freight charges.

Inspect all incoming packages for damage.

Back Orders

At times we are temporarily out of a part you requested. It will be put on backorder and shipped as soon as it arrives. We will notify you in 30 days (if we do not receive your merchandise) that your backorder is being cancelled. Any held money will be returned. Please notify our sales dept., or write a note on your MAIL ORDER FORM that you do not want unavailable items backordered.

Cores and Core Charges

A core is your old part that we must have in exchange when you buy certain rebuilt parts. The core must be rebuildable and must be the same as the part that was purchased. Core fees are charged plus the cost of the part. Example: RESP230 $300 plus core SPC233 $100 = $400. The $100 core charge will be refunded when we recieve your core (only if it is rebuildable). If a core is not rebuildable, you will be notified and we will return it if you so desire. Your core may be required for rebuilding. Cores must be shipped prepaid to us.

Some unusual hard to find items are not stocked. We will try to locate them when we receive your order. These special order parts are non-returnable unless sent incorrectly.
