TERMS & CONDITIONS
Minimum Order - In order to keep our overall prices as low as possible, our minimum order amount for orders shipped within the USA is $35. (Due to the extra handling and customs paperwork required for foreign orders, the minimum order amount for Canadian orders is $50 and anywhere else in the world the minimum order amount is $100.) Any USA order not meeting the minimum will be assessed a $5 small order charge. Foreign orders not meeting the minimum will not be accepted.
Payment - We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit and debit cards as payment methods on our web site. We also accept Purchase Orders from companies who have already completed our credit application and been approved for a Net 30 account. If your company wishes to apply for credit with our company, please contact us for a credit application. We no longer accept C.O.D. orders.
Shipping Policy - We offer FREE Ground Shipping within the entire USA (including Alaska, Hawaii, & APO/FPO adresses!) for most pre-paid orders over $95. (Less than 1% of our products are not eligible for free shipping - mainly large sheet metal brakes and shears and such ineligible items are clearly marked.) Distributor orders purchased for resale are not eligible for free shipping. All orders that are not eligible for free shipping will be charged actual shipping costs with a minimum charge of $9.45. We receive substantial discounts from our carriers and we pass these savings on to our customers. Unlike some of our competitors, we do not seek to make a profit on shipping costs, so we DO NOT add any "handling charges" or "packing fees" to our orders.
Domestic orders are shipped FOB Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
International orders are shipped EX WORKS Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Almost all of our orders are shipped the very same day they are received. Normal ground shipping transit time to you depends on your location in relation to our centrally located warehouse in Oklahoma City. Most locations in the USA will receive their shipment within 5 business days and most locations in Canada will receive their shipment within 10 business days. Of course the closer you are to Oklahoma City, the quicker you will receive your shipment, for example, most customers in Texas will receive their order within one or two days and most customers in Georgia will receive their order within two to three days.
Expedited Shipping - We can ship your order to you via UPS or FedEx "Next Day Air", "Second Day Air", or "Three Day Air" for an additional charge. We can add the expedited shipping charges to your order, or we can bill the charges collect against your account with the carrier. Expedited shipping charges are based entirely on the weight of the order and the distance it travels, so if you require expedited shipping and you need to know the cost of expedited shipping ahead of time, it is best that you call or e-mail us with a list of the tools you intend to order and the delivery address - we will get back with you promptly with an exact cost.
