Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy your products in my own country?
We have a number of resellers in many countries around the world. These resellers are knowledgeable about your product needs and can assist you with selecting the right equipment. They also offer valuable assistance with shipping and import procedures to make sure your order is handled in the best possible way for you. Please contact and we will gladly assist you with your order.

How do I know that the products I have ordered will work in my country?
All products in our catalog are made for use in the United States. However, we are pleased to supply products that are made for other regions and countries, such as electrical equipment for 220V output, or measuring equipment for the metric system, or compasses calibrated for optimal accuracy in your country. Just let us know what you need, and we will be glad to assist.

What will be the final delivery cost of my product?
We will quote you a shipping charge upon request that accounts for only the actual freight cost of moving your order from our warehouse to your destination. Any customs clearance fees and local import/sales taxes are the responsibility of the buyer, and are NOT included in the shipping charge.

What kind of documentation will be sent along with the order?
All international orders will be accompanied by a Commercial Invoice that states a description of the goods, the sales price, and the country of origin of the goods.
