Orders from Canada are subject to additional handling charges, higher shipping rates, and applicable customs, duties and taxes, all of which are the responsibility of the customer. Note: many product warranties do not provide coverage outside the United States, and some products may not be exported under any circumstances due to manufacturers’ restrictions or U.S. law. EquiptmentAndOxygen.com makes no representations regarding warranty coverage, compatibility or serviceability for products that are used outside the U.S.
Free or discounted shipping promotions, or discounted pricing promotions, may not apply to incontinence/diaper supplies, liquids, wheelchairs, and some of our other over-sized items. We apologize, but in order to maintain our low regular prices, we cannot always include these medical supply categories in shipping promotions.
White Glove Shipping
Some items in some place are eligible for white glove delivery. A technician will deliver the product, bring it inside your home and set it up. If you choose white glove delivery, once the item has shipped it cannot be canceled. Any order canceled after white glove items have shipped will result in the customer being responsible for the shipping charges. Please contact our Customer Support team to determine if your item is eligible for white glove delivery at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How long does it take to receive a refund?
Provided you have followed the instructions from the Customer Support team and the policy above, you should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (7 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (5 to 7 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days.)
How do I receive a call tag?
When you are shipping a return, you will either receive a return shipping label or a call tag. Call tags may take up to 10 business days to arrive.

How do I receive a return authorization number?
Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen will provide you with an RA number via email. If you do not have an email address, we will make other accommodations.

Any product that you purchase may be subject to a restocking fee. A 25% restocking fee may apply.
Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen recognizes and respects the importance of customers’ privacy and security. To guarantee our customers a safe and confidential shopping experience, Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen safeguards their personal information. More specifically, Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen actively employs Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, technology on the credit card and personal information pages of our website. SSL technology functions by managing server and client authentication, and encrypting both server and client communication.
This means that our server encrypts your credit card information and keeps it safe by routing payment only to Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen. Your credit card information is never stored or visible to Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen when you purchase online. Due to this safety feature, each time you place an order online, you will need to provide your credit card information.
To further ensure a secure connection, when you access the “checkout” page (where sensitive information is entered), you will notice the first characters of the URL, uniform resource locator (web address), will change from “http” to “https.” The change in the address denotes a secure IP
address. Some browsers and firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. If you access Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen through an insecure connection you will not be able to place an order online. If you cannot access our shopping cart, please print out our order form and place your order by phone at 1-800-653-6888
How Does Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen Use My Information?
When you make a purchase from Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen, we use the information you provide to us (name, address, phone, etc.) to process your order. We do not share or sell this information to third parties. All information is considered private and confidential, and is only used to help us better serve you and improve your shopping experience while online with Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen. All credit card numbers are routed through McAfee Secure and are never visible to Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen for online purchases.
Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen uses a browser feature known as a cookie. A cookie is a simple file that stores your personalized information on your hard drive so you don’t have to re-enter it a second time when revisiting our website. Cookies help to improve and personalize your shopping experience by increasing our web pages responsiveness and decreasing time between downloading as you browse or surf through our website.
Regarding Credit Card Transactions
You can safely transmit credit card information through our website. You can enter your credit card number on a secure (https) form and transmit the form over the Internet to a secure server without risk of an intermediary obtaining your credit card information. The security features offered by your web browser technology protects commercial transactions, as well as all other communications, from misappropriation and fraud that could otherwise occur as information passes through the internet.
With SSL implemented on both the client and server, your internet communications are transmitted in an encrypted form. Information you send can be trusted to arrive privately and unaltered to the server you specify (and no other).
SSL uses authentication and encryption technology. For example, your browsers export implementation of SSL (U.S. government approved) uses a high-grade, 128-bit key size. The encryption established between you and a server remains valid over multiple connections, yet the effort expended to defeat the encryption of one message cannot be leveraged to defeat the next message.
Your browser and secure servers deliver server authentication using signed digital certificates issued by trusted third parties known as certificate authorities. A digital certificate verifies the connection between a server’s public key and the server’s identification. Cryptographic checks, using digital signatures, ensure that information within a certificate can be trusted.
