Prices are subject to change without notice. Due to frequent manufacturer price adjustments based on metal cost fluctuations, pricing is guaranteed only at the time an order is placed. Backorders on stock merchandise will be filled at the original price billed.

Special Orders

We solicit special orders and require full payment in advance. Delivery on special orders is based on normal factory lead time which varies based on the product. We try to provide the best delivery time available. No cancellations or returns can be accepted on special order merchandise. If there is a defect or error by a factory, we will accept it for credit or replacement at the manufacturer's option.

Packages that arrive without the RGA number prominently displayed on the outside of the carton may be refused and returned to you unopened. It is strongly recommended that you declare value when returning material to us that is worth more than $100 as most carriers will not cover losses over that amount without additional insurance.

All claims for hidden damage must be made within 5 days of receipt of goods. If a package arrives in an obviously distressed condition, you may refuse the shipment or sign for the package as damaged. The carrier will be required to cover any merchandise loss incurred.
