Replacement costs

Books and other items except equipment

  • You will be charged the current actual price of the item (or if the price is not available, a default price of $50) together with a $50 processing fee.
  • We will refund your money if you find and return the book within 6 months of making the payment, provided the book has not been reordered. The refund will be for the replacement cost only and not the processing fee. On presentation of receipt, a refund will be issued by the original form of payment.
