You may place an order with us over the telephone or by completing and submitting to us an online order form on our website.

It is your responsibility to check the order (including all pricing and product information) before you complete the online checkout process or before you place your telephone order.

We will let you have an "order reference number" via a confirmation email or over the phone once your checkout process or phone order is complete.
