How do I place an order?
You may place and order by calling us at 800.867.2470, Monday thru Friday 9am - 5pm EST.

Prior to requesting payment, we will provide a written estimate including shipping costs, applicable sales tax, warranty and return policy information.
Is There an Order Minimum?
Here at Richmart, we offer equipment packages. Therefore, we do have a five piece-$10k minimum for all orders. Why a minimum you ask? We are not in the business of selling equipment that simply meets a certain price point and blind ships to customers. We take a more personal approach. Our business model allows us to listen to and assist our customers in finding the right, quality item that fits their budget and particular need. Read more about our Services here.
