We accept Visa, MasterCard, and AMEX. Net 30 credit terms may be available to qualified customers upon request.


We strive to offer our customers maximum flexibility. Orders may be cancelled by customers if they have not entered production. A fee of 20% of the value of the order will apply. We also will accommodate cancellation of orders that are in production, and the customer will be charged a cancellation fee determined by the value of the order times the percentage of work completed at the time of cancellation.


Unless specified, all applicable taxes are extra. The customer agrees to pay all duties and custom clearance costs.


For a one year period, or the period of the extended warranty purchased, we warrant that our systems (apart from custom units) will be free from defects in parts and workmanship from the day the unit is shipped. Should a system fail due to defective parts or workmanship, the customer may opt to A) return system to 45Drives, in which case it will be repaired or replaced and shipped back to customer at 45Drives' expense; or B) receive replacements for defective parts, in which case the customer will remove defective parts from the system, (at 45Drives option) ship defective parts to 45Drives at 45Drives' expense, and install replacement parts. Should you choose Option B), you will use the 45Drives RMA Process.

All warranty replacement parts will be verified to satisfy the original specifications and purpose. If equivalent technology cannot be sourced, a superior verified replacement may be provided for the warrantied part. Unless the client approves a certified reconditioned part, 45Drives will obtain warranty replacements from new stock.

Parts that have been purposefully damaged, damaged due to negligence, or modified in any manner without 45Drives approval may not be eligible for warranty replacement.


For custom system configurations that have been specified by customer (i.e., that have not been engineered by 45Drives), we warrant against defects in workmanship and parts that are specified by 45Drives, for period of 1 year, or the part manufacturers' warranty, whichever is greater. After assembly, 45Drives will competently test to basic system functionality in advance of packaging and shipping. As we have not designed these systems, 45Drives cannot warrant that they will be suitable for customer's intended purpose.
