U.S. Customers
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, PayPal, wire transfer and US money orders.

International Customers
Credit card or PayPal® through our secure server, or Wire transfer in U.S. currency will be ideal.


U.S. Customers
We offer flat rate shipping for various items anywhere in the continental United States.

This shipping rate often includes heavy duty fiber drums and other packing materials. Many customers find the drums quite useful after receiving their products. For instance, one client uses her drums as bed stands. They are also great heavy duty storage or rubbish bins. Even though they cost between $50 to $75 each, they are simply the most successful way to get the horns from point A to point B.

International Customers
International customers may place an order though PayPal® or by contacting us via email or telephone to make arrangements for a wire transfer in U.S. currency. Shipping will be calculated on a case by case basis.

For orders that exceed the UPS weight limit, we will calculate the shipping cost and contact you before your order is processed.
