FAQs

When you place an Import Order with CBI you are committing to those individual item quantities specifically being created for you by our vendor. Import ordering is very valuable as it allows you to enjoy deeper import discounts on these items.

When discussing Import order shipping it's best to think of a shipping window and not a shipping date. A good rule of thumb for an Import order shipping window would be arrival of your goods as soon as 4 to 5 months but as far out as 6 to 8 months.

When you place a Stock order with CBI your order can be immediately filled by inventory that is in our warehouse.

Stock orders can ship approximately 5 business days after the day the order was confirmed and finalized by you.
The Ship and Cancel Dates is your way as the customer to tell us when the best window of time is for us to ship your order to your location. As an example you would not want to receive your Christmas order in May but you would also not want us to ship your Christmas order in December. In this situation a shipping window of August 1st and Cancel date of October 31st seems appropriate.

A State Sales And Use Tax Certificate is an official document that is provided to your business by the state that your business exists in.
