CUSTOM ORDER PROCESS
Rather than take orders on a rolling basis, we have established a Production Run process whereby we group orders together three times per year to increase efficiency and help lower our prices to you. Below is a table summarizing current and future Production Runs and available openings:
Production Run Start Date | Approximate Completion Date** | Current Number of Openings Available
September 1, 2019 January, 2020 Product Run FULL
January 1, 2020 *Production Run Suspended N/A
May 1, 2020 *Production Run Suspended N/A
September 1, 2020 *Production Run Suspended N/A
*See our July 2019 Press Release Detailing the Suspension of Future Production Runs.
Availabilities as of May 6, 2020.
*Please note, our production runs routinely fill up to capacity and do so by approximately 1 month prior to the Start Date listed above. So be sure to call us early to reserve your spot in our next production or risk getting bumped to a later run.
**Approximate Completion Dates listed above are only rough guidelines. Many factors affect when we can complete your custom made telescope, many of which are out of our direct control. No orders should be placed under the pretense of taking delivery of a telescope by the dates listed above. As your custom build progresses we will keep you more accurately updated.
Placing Your Order
No order can be initiated and officially logged without a completed, signed and dated Order Specification Form. This Form should be submitted as early in the order process as possible and will help us provide you with an accurate price quote. In addition, this Form will act as a contract allowing our staff to be in agreement with you on all aspects of your scope and to eliminate any miscommunications. This Form also acts as a guide for us during the design and build processes, therefore we ask that you be as explicit as possible on the Form with any special requests or considerations that need to be addressed.
Please print, fill-out and mail (or scan/E-mail) the applicable Order Form below. If sending via E-mail, please send to:
If sending via regular mail, please send to:
Teeter's Telescopes, LLC.
