For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover at point of sale and for online payment of invoices. We also accept Check by Phone. Qualified customers may establish an open account with the completion and approval of a credit application. Payments on open accounts are due on all orders within seven (7) days after invoice date of the product. Balances left unpaid after 30 days from invoice date will incur a 1.5% finance charge per month. Disputed items on an invoice are the exception. If we find it necessary to place an account in collection, all fees and other costs associated with the collection will be assessed without prior notice.

Check by Phone Has Replaced CODs

Check by Phone has replaced COD. To use Check by Phone, your DHPI Account Manager will need to collect your checking account information. It's that easy! No COD, no extra charges.


A deposit is required on all large equipment orders. The balance of payment is due when the equipment is delivered. We do not provide long-term storage of purchased equipment; therefore, equipment must be installed within a reasonable amount of time after purchase. All equipment orders are non-returnable and cannot be cancelled. Architectural and design services are available for a fee and are refundable with equipment purchase. We honor manufacturer warranties and provide a 90-day labor warranty.
