Q: How much does it cost to ship the items I'm looking at
A: Our web site uses freight calculators to calculate the cost of
shipping directly to your address. To get your shipping costs, simply
place the items that you are interested in purchasing into your shopping
cart and fill out the first checkout page. All we need is the billing
and shipping addresses and the shipping method you are interested in
(ground, 2nd Day Air, etc.) which you can select at the bottom of the
page. Continue, and we'll display the shipping cost on the next/final
page - before you have to give us credit card information.
Q: How do I know if an item is in stock or not?
A: If there is a button by the product you are looking to buy, it is in
If an item is not in stock, the web site will not let you order it. This
will be apparent in one of two ways; First web site will not let you add
the item to your shopping basket if it is not in stock. Usually you will
just see an icon that displays our phone number. Secondly, if you have
added an item to your shopping basket which has since sold out, the
value "0" will appear in the quantity field of your shopping

shipping options are also available. These express orders will receive

following order verification and will arrive 1-2 business days later.

Q: Are you an authorized dealer for the products you sell?
A: Yes, absolutely. We are an authorized dealer for every product that
we sell - allowing you to receive full factory support with regards to
warranty service and customer support. Also, should there be any
manufacturer mail-in rebate offers on products you are interested in
purchasing, you will qualify to be awarded these rebates. Purchasing
products from dealers who are not authorized will negate these rebates.

A: Our return policy can be found by clicking here
Q: What does "unopened box" mean on your return policy?
A: Unopened means the box has not been opened and nothing has been
removed or handled from the packaging. Once an item is opened it is no
longer new and we only accept opened products for return if there is a
defect within 30 days of shipping. TVs 20" or larger and all
floor-standing speakers are factory service only and cannot be returned
to us. We will gladly help you locate a factory authorized service
center for these products. Our full return policy can be found by
Q: If I don't like an item, can I return it?

a defect. Any products returned with missing or damaged original
contents, or false claims of defect, condition or damage will be refused
or assessed a minimum restocking fee of 20%, at our discretion.
Q: Can I order any other way than by credit card?
A: The easiest and most preferred way to order from us is by credit
card. However, you may order from us by using a Bank/Certified Check or
Money Order. We do not accept personal checks or business checks.
Place all of the items in your shopping cart and proceed to fill out the
billing and shipping information. Select your shipping method and
continue to the final checkout page. You will then arrive at the page
where you would normally give us credit card information. Print that
page out and mail it with your Bank/Certified Check or Money Order -
your final total will appear at the lower right. Please also include
your e-mail address so that we can send you notifications of when we
process your order, and the tracking number when it ships from us.

A: Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 10am to 6pm, excluding

business days and express shipping orders within 2 business days after
the sale has been entered on our site.
Q: If I place an express order, when will it ship?
A: Expedited shipping options (Standard 2nd Day or Overnight) refer to
the time it will take the delivery company to transport the package from
our warehouse to you. It does not refer to the amount of time it takes
us to process your order, verify your credit card, and package your
order. Express orders are processed within 2 business days or less,
contingent upon proper billing and shipping address verification. While
most express orders leave within 1 business day, we cannot guarantee
shipping until 2 business days after placing the order. Please be aware
that we do not have a rush processing option. Our processing time is
there to ensure quality and accuracy in sending your product. Click here

Q: After I place an order, will you contact me and try to sell
me items I do not wish to buy before shipping it?
A: No, unlike some other shops on the web that advertise prices too good
to be true, we will simply take and ship your order (after
authorization) in an expedient manner. No hard sells, no bait-and-switch
tactics - just quick, friendly service. Everything on our site is
available a la carte - buy what you want, as much or as little as you
want, when you want.
Q: Will you still ship my order, even if I do not also purchase
additional accessories for the item?
A: Yes, of course!
Q: What happens if I receive a product that was damaged during
A: We package everything to ensure that normal courier handling of your
package will not damage the contents inside. Almost everything we send
out is double boxed, and contains protective packing material to help
absorb shock and light direct hits. Every shipment is insured as well.
Occasionally a customer receives a package which arrives damaged, due to
courier mishandling or shipping mishap. In the event that you receive a
package with substantial visible damage, do the following:
First: Inspect the manufacturer's box of your item(s). Since we
package everything based on the needs of the product, most instances of
damage to the outer packaging do not yield damage to the product(s).
Second: Inspect and use the actual items(s) to see if there is any
If the product is visibly damaged after inspection, or is not
functioning properly, please call us immediately at (800) 982-8273 and
we will discuss how to replace your shipment.
Q: What do I do if I receive a product that does not work upon
A: If an item does not appear to be functioning properly when you
receive it, do the following:
First, contact the manufacturer at the manufacturer's technical support
center. Due to the complexity of consumer electronics, many items have
settings and options that need to be changed or initially configured to
function properly and we have found that the manufacturer is the best
source of information to provide the initial troubleshooting that you'll
need. Contact information for the specific brand/product can be found in
the instruction manual/user guide that accompanies the product.
Second: If the manufacturer deems the product to be defective and says
it should be replaced, you can request a return authorization on our web
site so that we can exchange the item for you. Click here to request a
Q: Do you accept international orders or ship internationally?
A: We do not accept any international credit cards. This is due to order
authorization procedures, fraud protection, shipping and insurance
reasons. We will only accept and process orders from the continental US,
Alaska, and Hawaii. Alaska and Hawaii can use UPS 2nd Day Air or ground,
which takes about 5 business days in transit time to major cities. If
you pick an incorrect shipping option at checkout, we will contact you
prior to sending the item(s).
Q: Can you ship to APO/FPO addresses?
A: Yes, we can ship most items under 30 pounds (gross weight) to any
APO/FPO address. We use USPS for shipping such items.
We do not regularly use USPS for the bulk of our shipments, so we do not
have a regular pickup for this service. Our web site, therefore, does
not take orders for USPS shipments. All orders being shipped to APO/FPO
addresses need to be submitted over the phone at (800) 982-8273 or (440)
934-8130, or they can also be faxed to us at (440) 934-3122.
Also, since we do not have a regular pickup with USPS, processing and
shipping times for orders being sent to APO/FPO addresses may be
extended by a few extra business days.
Q: Can I pick up my order at your retail location?
A: In most cases, yes. Some items that we have listed on our site are shipped from our distribution centers, not from our main retail shop in Avon, Ohio. Please contact us at 800-982-8273 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm. Our retail location is located at 1195 Moore Rd, Avon, OH 44011.
