On-Line / Website Orders
We have thousands of items available for sale. To make a purchase, find the item you want easily by performing a quick search (white box near top of page....type in a word or short phrase and hit the "enter" button on your keyboard). You can also find items by clicking the links to any of our departments or by browsing our specials pages. To purchase an item you will need to "add" the item to your shopping cart. The shopping cart keeps a running tally of the items. You can easily add or remove items from your "cart" at anytime. To do the "view cart" link and you will be taken to a special page which will list all of the items in your cart and show you any discounts which may apply to your items. When you have finished adding items to the cart, you will need to click on "checkout" where you will need to specify a payment method and shipping options. If you have not yet created a user account, you will need to complete all required information before completing the checkout process. After you have submitted your order, an email will be sent to you and your order will be held in queue until you are contacted by the order processing team.

Order Verification (Stage 2)
All orders processed on our website are subject to order verification processes which protect you in the event of identity theft and fraud. Our secure servers accept your transactions, however they are not fully processed until we contact you via telephone. Please ensure that you have provided us with a verifiable daytime telephone number along with your order. All orders will be verified between 9am and 5pm Eastern standard time. To expedite the order verification process, please ensure that you have a copy of your order and have ready access to all information provided on the order. All order verification phone calls may be recorded for security purposes and may be monitored for quality assurance programs. We respect your privacy and we want to fight fraud in the safest and most secure manner. Order verification processes are the only acceptable method to ensure that the information you provide to us can never be intercepted by a third party. Rest assured that you are buying with privacy and confidence at all times when using our website.

Changes or substitutions to your order can be easily handled during your verification phone call. If you forgot to add that "all important item" no problem, our customer service team will gladly assist you.
Stage 2 processing will also indicate whether an item is back ordered and an ETA will be provided to you during the discussion with the verification team.

Order Processing (Stage 3)
After your order has been verified with our processing team, you will receive a final "retail invoice" in PDF format via email indicating the items you have purchased, shipping method chosen, payment method acceptance and all relevant information related to your order. The "retail invoice" will detail any items changed or modified with the processing team and will provide estimates and warehouse locations for the items being shipped to you. All orders processed before 3pm Eastern Standard time are usually shipped out the same day but due to seasonal volume fluctuations, orders may ship the next business day unless special priority shipping arrangements have been made.

Packing and Shipping (Stage 4)
Our warehouse team receives a copy of your order and items will be packed and shipped according to your specifications from our retail warehouse or region specific warehouses depending on the items contained in your order. Our warehouse staff are very careful to pack your order in the best manner possible to ensure the items arrive at your door in excellent condition.

Please take note that some items (Guitars, Basses, and stringed instruments are always double boxed for your protection), however courier and freight companies will not always honour damage claims for these items due to their delicate nature. If you want to guarantee a worry free shipment we strongly advise the purchase of a hardshell case for all musical instruments. Doing so, reduces the risk of contents damage by almost 90%. We rarely see claims for shipping damage, on any item we sell, however guitars shipped without a hardshell case are the number one contender for damage claims.

When your order has been packed and shipped you will receive an additional copy of your "retail invoice" in PDF format via email with tracking information and date of shipment. To track your shipment simply follow the instructions contained in this email from our shipping department. Note... depending on shipping method chosen some items may be more difficult to track such as LTL or large items shipped via trucking companies as their systems are only updated as items pass thru major terminal points. If your item is being shipped from a region specific warehouse we do not have immediate access to their shipping systems, but if you call or email we can gladly respond to your request for tracking information within a 24 hour period on most business days. Please note that our region specific warehouses are not open on weekends and we are not able to respond to tracking info requests when they are closed.


We will gladly match or beat any advertised price in Canada or the USA for up to 30 days from the date of purchase. If you find a lower price, please contact us by phone at 1 888 472 0070 and We will beat that price by 10% of the difference. Item must be in stock, in factory sealed condition and sold by an authorized dealer. Sorry but we cannot match online auction prices, however, (we will try to give you the best deal possible) and many of our products are already priced lower than can be found on some of these sites once you factor in all costs including our free shipping, free shipping insurance, CSA protection, Tech Support, warranty coverage and border conversion fees. All price match requests will be examined on a case by case basis. Please call our toll free number 1 888 472 0070 for more information. Please note that all price match requests will require verification which can cause slight delays in order processing.

If you find a lower legitimate advertised price, including our own price, on an item of the same brand and model number as you purchased, and submit a Price Match Guarantee application form within 30 days from the date of your purchase, Acclaim will refund you the difference in the form of a Credit Memo or Gift Certificate

Oversize packages and some items weighing more than 50lbs (cubed shipping weight) may not qualify for free shipping as they cannot be delivered by normal shipping channels. Oversize items rate quotes are readily available for any item simply by calling our toll free number or by placing your order online. Our customer service team will review your order and will advise you whenever one of your items is classified as an oversized product or you will see a notice appear on the checkout pages. We will never bill you for oversize until you have given us the green light and items will not be shipped until we contact you by telephone to confirm the accuracy of shipping charges for oversize items. Please call us directly if you require further information.
NEW-Free shipping is now available on some oversize items. The item listing will indicate Free shipping on these items.

NOTE: Some items may be shipped from our warehouse locations in Toronto or Montreal. These shipments will often be upgraded to Purolator, Fedex, UPS or other premium shipping services at no additional cost to you...however there may be delays in providing up to date tracking as these warehouses can only provide updates to us every 48 hours not including weekends.

In the event of a product return or refused shipment...all shipping charges will be deducted from your credited value.
