Product Pricing & Descriptions
The List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere.

We do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered in our website is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
A pre-order is an order you can place for an item before it is in stock and available for delivery.
When an order is placed for a pre-order item:
- Your card will be charged once the order has been successfully placed
- This item may either be new and is still not available, or is currently out of stock and we will be receiving at a later time.
- We do not guarantee the shipment/delivery of pre-ordered items on a requested date.
- Once we receive stock of the item, we will then get your order processed and shipped.
When an order contains both available and pre-order items:
- Pre-ordered items will be shipped separately as soon as they become available.
- For international shipments, your entire order will only be shipped once all items are available.
International Shipments - Duty, Customs, Taxes and Foreign Transaction Fees
