Payment is due by credit card. Once an order is placed by credit card, the credit card account will be verified at the time the order is placed. Should a credit card be declined, so will be the order. Orders are processed ONLY upon receipt of payment.

Disclaimer of Warranty
When products are shipped to you, their limited warranties applicable to products are in effect and are included with the shipment. Certain products may have additional warranties provided by the original manufacturer but not by us. On our website, “as is” products may not have warranties from us (other than those warranties implied by and incapable of exclusion, restriction or modification under applicable law), but may still hold warranties from the manufacturer.

Shipping and Handling Charges and Taxes
The buyer is responsible for any taxes or tariffs associated with their purchase.

Prices shown on our site do not include shipping and handling. Neither do the prices include taxes unless otherwise noted. All prices are in Canadian dollars. The price charged for an order will be the price in effect at the time the order is made.

Shipping & Risks during Shipping
When products are shipped to you by common carrier, our liability to you for breakage and/or non-delivery of the products by the common carrier to you will be limited by the limits of liability provided by the common carrier’s terms and conditions of carriage.
