SECURE ON-LINE SHOPPING
Our on-line store is powered by Yahoo! Small Business, and uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as financial services information or payment information. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed on the bottom of most browser windows during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time a Store asks for a credit card number during checkout for payment, it'll be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be stored securely on our servers. Our store is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Yahoo! Small Business will conduct periodic audits as required to maintain compliance with the PCI DSS as a service provider.
Why your credit card BILLING address is important
When you place an order through our website using a credit card, the billing address you enter is ran through an Address Verification System (AVS) to make sure the address you entered matches what the credit card company has on file. This is done to help prevent credit card fraud, which is prevalent on the internet these days. If the address you enter does not match, your order will be flagged in our system as "Pending Review". We have to then review the order and possibly contact you to see why the address doesn't match. So, if you want your order processed and shipped quickly, make sure you enter the correct billing address. And if you also enter a different address to ship to, this can slow things down too, because we then have to somehow try and verify that address is legitimate. On orders over about $500 we may refuse to ship to anything but the verified BILLING address. Again, this is to try and prevent fraud.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING (Continental U.S.)
Order Size Standard Ground Shipping Charge
0 - $99.99..........................$12.99 * NOTE 1
$100 - $399.99....................$9.99 ** NOTE 2
$400 or more......................FREE! ** NOTE 2
* NOTE 1: Due to the high volume of sub $100 orders we're receiving during this busy time of year, we've had to add a small handling charge to smaller orders under $100.
** NOTE 2: Shipping and handling will be added to your order after you enter your ship-to address at checkout. The shipping charges shown above are a general guideline. Actual shipping charges calculated at checkout may vary slightly depending on your location and what you order. Certain oversize items like seats, gas tanks, etc can change the shipping charge calculated at checkout, and it may differ from the chart shown above.
Shipping is typically via UPS Standard Ground, but sometimes smaller items will be sent via Priority US Postal Mail. Corbeau and Sparco seats/brackets/harness belts, and most motorcycle exhaust systems are shipped via Fed Ex or UPS Ground only (the boxes are too large for Next Day, 2 Day, or 3 Day shipping).
For shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, and other locations outside the Continental US, shipping will be more than what is shown above. Our shopping cart will estimate the shipping charges at the time you place the order.
Shipping for Corbeau and Sparco Auto Racing Seats
Due to the high cost of shipping, single seat orders (quantity of 1) no longer qualify for free shipping. Shipping has gotten so expensive, that we lose money on these orders, so we've decided to split shipping costs with our customers. If you order a single racing seat, we will contact you and let you know your cost.
Orders for a pair (quantity of 2) of seats will still qualify for free shipping.
Shipping To California
There are a few products that we CANNOT ship to the state of California. These are typically large items that we have drop shipped from distributors, and those distributors either will not ship to California for us because of the states tax laws OR they ding us with state sales tax of about 9%. We have listed a few of these items below. If you are in California and order any of the following, we will contact you and your order will be updated to remove the items from the order...
- Most Motorcycle Exhaust Systems and Packages
- DRC Lift Stands
- IMS and Acerbis Gas Tanks
Shipping To Canada
At this time, we are not shipping to Canada. This is a temporary thing.
SPECIAL NOTICE ON SHIPPING AND BILLING ADDRESSES:
For faster order processing, we recommend shipping to your credit card BILLING address. If you enter different billing and shipping addresses, it may slow down order processing because we have to try and verify the shipping address prior to shipment (for fraud prevention purposes). If you want us to ship to your work address, be sure to enter the full company name. Please note that on certain orders (like above $500), we may refuse to ship to an address that is NOT the billing address. Unfortunately fraudulent orders are becoming more common and we have to protect ourselves and our customers. ALL ORDERS shipping to an address that is different than billing will require a signature on delivery.
Most items are shipped from our location in Ohio. If you choose the Standard Ground (UPS Ground) shipping option, you can use the map below to determine how long it will take to recieve your package.
Certain items (like racing seats, and some helmets) may be drop shipped from the manufacturer, and will take 3-5 business days to reach you depending on your location.
NOTE: If you need your order to be delivered by a certain date, please note that in the comments box during checkout, or check with us via phone or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out where it is shipping from. Certain items, like helmets and seats, may have to be drop shipped from one of our distributors if they are not in stock here, so the shipping map below will not be accurate and it could take longer to get your order.
If you choose the 3 DAY SHIPPING option from our on-line shopping cart, the shipping charges shown are an estimate. If they end up being less than what is estimated, we will adjust them down before charging your credit card. If they are more than what is estimated, we will call you to confirm the extra charges.
If you need 2 DAY SHIPPING or NEXT DAY AIR SHIPPING please call us at 330-940-3249 to get a shipping quote.

There is a 15% restocking fee on all seats/brackets returned with or without an exchange. Customers will also pay ANY AND ALL shipping costs incurred. This can get expensive, so try and make sure the seats you are ordering will fit your vehicle.

Please be careful when unpacking your order so that the boxes and packing material may be used again if necessary.

Credit Card: Currently we accept payments through Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover Card. Sorry, we cannot accept C.O.D. orders. Please note that your credit card WILL BE authorized at the time you place your order, but it WILL NOT be charged until your item(s) are ready to ship, or being prepared to ship (in the case of custom made-to-order items). An exception is when we only have part of your order in stock - in this case we will charge your card, ship what we have, and backorder what we don't have.
Pay Pal®: We now accept payments through Pay Pal. When you checkout, you will be given the option to pay with Pay Pal instead of regular credit card. Please make sure your shipping address is "confirmed" with Pay Pal. If it is not, we may contact you for further verification, and we will also require a signature on delivery.
