Can you help me figure out what I need?
AntaresPro.com lists extensive technical specifications for almost all products on our Web site. In addition, we encourage product reviews from other shoppers. In order to keep our costs down, and our prices, we do not assist customers in determining their needs.

How do I cancel a backordered item?
If you must cancel an order for any reason, please send us an email via our contact form with your order number, item part number and description. Once your cancellation is confirmed, we will send you a confirmation email for your records.
How do I cancel an order that was just placed?
If you must cancel an order for any reason, please email us your name, order number, item part number and description. A AntaresPro.com Customer Service Specialist will determine whether the order has already shipped. If your order has not been shipped, we can usually process the cancellation. If the cancellation is confirmed, AntaresPro.com will send you a confirmation email. This confirmation email is your proof of cancellation and will be necessary, in case of any questions, to waive the restocking fee.
If you receive the order, then you may refuse delivery to avoid the cost of return shipping. Again, unless you have a confirmation email stating the order cancellation prior to shipment, there will be 15% restock fee for all refused shipments. If you do not refuse delivery, you must obtain a Return Authorization number to return your item(s). You will be liable for the return shipping fees. The package must be unopened in new "as shipped" condition to be eligible for a credit. Click here for more information on returns.
In most cases, AntaresPro.com will not be able to cancel an order because it is has already shipped. In order to offer our customers fast delivery, most orders are released from our warehouse within 20 minutes of the placement of each order. If this occurs, we will gladly accept a return consistent with our non-defective return policy. AntaresPro.com will not refund the shipping and handling fees and you will be responsible for any return shipping costs. We suggest that you use a return shipment method that issues tracking numbers. This will ensure the safe delivery of your returned item to our Returns Department.
Can you remove the credit card authorization on my canceled order?
AntaresPro.com is able to remove credit card authorizations on most canceled orders.
We do not “charge” your card until your order ships in part or in whole. Once you place an order, we send a request to your bank to “authorize” or “hold” the order amount until the order ships. The bank then holds the determined amount for AntaresPro.com until the order ships or up to one month, whichever is less.
Please email us via our contact form your request for the removal of a credit card authorization.

Will you match a price for me?

Do you offer rebates?
From time to time certain products are eligible for manufacturer rebates. Usually we will have a link to the rebate on the product page. Sometimes the rebate is included in the packaging of the product. Your invoice (you can print this from your computer) can be used to apply for the rebate.
Do you handle international orders?
At this time, AntaresPro.com does not accept international orders. We define it as an international order when the order is to ship to an address outside the United States, the credit card used to pay for the order has a billing address outside the United States, or the credit card was not issued in the United States, regardless of the shipping destination.
Do you ship to Canada?
Please see above.
Will you let me ship to an address that is different than my billing address?
To prevent fraud, we will only ship to an alternate address that is stated on the credit card account as an alternate shipping address or in the notes portion of the records for merchant verification. This does not apply to debit cards, as most debit card banks do not allow the customer to add an alternate address. If you need to notify the issuing bank of an alternate address, you may do so by calling the number on the back of your credit card. AntaresPro.com will call your bank to verify your information before shipping your order. Due to shipper restrictions, we cannot deliver to APO, FPO, PSC or PO Boxes.
When will my product be shipped?
Most credit approved and in stock orders placed before 1PM EST will ship the same day (excluding weekends and holidays). Orders placed after 1PM PST will ship the next business day (excluding weekends and holidays). For fast delivery, AntaresPro.com always ships from the warehouse (with the requested item in stock) closest to you. This usually enables your order to arrive via ground in 1-3 business days. If your order is shipped across the country, ground service can take up to 7 business days. Due to shipper restrictions, we cannot deliver to APO, FPO, PSC or PO Boxes.
What happens after I place an order?
Once your order is placed, you will receive an order confirmation email. When your order is processed you will receive an email confirming your order will ship out. This email will include a list of any backordered items. You will be notified by a third email as soon as any backordered items are shipped. After your order has been shipped, you will receive and email with the shipment tracking information.
For your convenience, orders can be viewed and tracked from the Account Info menu on our Web site 24 hours a day.
