Terms and Conditions:
Prices are subject to change without notice and may be different at our store. Order can be done by online, phone, fax, or email. We accept Visa, MC, Discover, American Express, or money orders. No COD's Accepted. California residents add 7.75% sales tax.
Most orders will be shipped the next business day. All shipments are generally sent by UPS ground shipping which is most economical, or USPS priority mail unless you specifically request other methods. You can also select UPS second day, UPS three day, and UPS next day if you prefer. Most items will be ship from our distributor’s warehouse in California, some will be ship directly from our manufacturers to you. Occasionally you may receive two or three packages to complete a large order. However, this rarely happened. There will not be any additional shipping charges because of multiple deliveries.
Due to the nature of our business, it is difficult to calculate the actual shipping costs at the time when customers place their orders. Therefore, the exact shipping charges will be added later when we received your orders. The shipping charge will be sent to you if you specifically request for it. Disregard any shipping charges that may be added at the time of your order, which is out of our control because we are using a third party software. Be assure that we do NOT add that shipping charge to your final total. We will ship your order the cheapest way possible for the products that you order. We strive to ship our products the most cost-effective ways possible for you. If you still need a shipping costs quote, please contact us, we will be glad to assist you.
