Why the limited store hours?

By keeping our costs to a minimum, DTX can offer some of the lowest prices around for quality tools and equipment. One way we do that is by limiting our store hours — although we’re always open on an appointment basis.

Please call or email us to arrange an appointment. We’ll do our best to accommodate your schedule.

What are the DTX sales terms and conditions?

All items sold by DTX are “as is”, which means that there are no explicit or implicit warranties. However, we do thoroughly inspect each item before offering it for sale to ensure it’s in a safe and operable condition.

Because we sell consigned items, DTX has a “no haggle” price policy. The price marked is the price you pay.

Will DTX deliver an item that I’ve purchased?

DTX can deliver most items locally for a fee of $25 — but there may be exceptions for specific items or delivery locations. Please check with us first!

Can DTX ship an item that I’ve purchased?

Yes, but please note that prices are marked for shop pickup only. If you need us to ship an item to you, please contact us prior to purchase to determine shipping costs.
