FAQ – Do you have stock on  _____?

We are frequently asked if we have stock on many hard to find products. The answer is usually, and often surprisingly, yes! Additionally, if or when we don’t have what you need in our stock we can either source the material from our large network of vendors, or we can manufacture the cable for you from scratch. Often, we can manufacture a custom cable in just a matter of days!


FAQ – How fast can you make _____?

When it comes to manufacturing cable and wire quickly, we bring a lot of value to the table. Depending on our supply chain of vendors we can usually have your products made faster than you’re probably used to.

  • First, our manufacturing plant usually makes 300 Volt Cables in just a few days. We have made these cables as quickly as 1 business day…
  • Furthermore, we supply 600 Volt cables in just 7-10 business days when delivery really matters on your project. Truly, when it comes to supplying you with quality cable with exceptional speed there is a reason our slogan is “Because You Require Quality, Quickly! ®”


FAQ – Does 1X Technologies Custom Cut Wire & Cable?

You can also contact 1X Technologies Customer Service at 1-888-651-9990.


FAQ – What is the biggest size cable you carry?

 While we supply cable as small as 30 AWG, we are really known for our huge cables. Depending on what product type you need the largest sizes are 500 MCM, 750 MCM, 1000 MCM, 1500 MCM2000 MCM, 2500 MCM3000 MCM, 3500 MCM4000 MCM, 4500 MCM5000 MCM, 5500 MCM, and up to 6000 MCM.


FAQ – What is your Freight Allowed Policy?

The easy answer is that orders over 5000 lbs are typically shipped Free, or “freight allowed“. However, we always make an effort to offer our wire & cable quoted as Freight Allowed. Specifically, when we are in a competitive bidding situation and you require “apples to apples” quotes we often break our shipping cost down as a line item. We do this to help you make an informed decision and it helps us win more business.


FAQ – What types of Products do you Carry?

We carry a very broad range of specialty wire & cable products. For example, we sell everything from Belden Equals, to High-Temperature Wire, to extra large sized MCM Copper Cable in a variety of different constructions. Additionally, we also carry specialty connectors and other cable accessories. Furthermore, if you’ve searched high and low and can’t find what you need, we’ll make the size you require and with maximum speed!


FAQ – When do you charge Sales Tax? 

Specifically, 1X Technologies only charges sales tax if we have Nexus within the state your business or job is located. Nexus means “Sufficient Physical Presence”. The U.S. Supreme Court held in National Bellas Hess v. Department of Revenue (1967) and Quill Corp. v. North Dakota (1992) that states may not collect taxes on sales in a state from retailers that do not have a physical presence in the state. For example, if your job is in Wyoming where our headquarters is located, you would be required to pay Wyoming sales tax unless you have tax exempt status. Conversely, if your ship to address is within a state we do not have a Nexus we will not charge tax. It will then be up to you to determine and pay your local “Use tax“.

FAQ – Does 1X Technologies provide contract or volume pricing?

Yes. No doubt, we offer discounts for volume that can be substantial to your bottom line. For example, we were recently able to save the Army Corps of Engineers nearly 50% of their bottom line on Belden Equals. If you need a contract or volume pricing quote, please contact us at 1-888-651-9990. Again, you may also chat with us online regarding contract and volume pricing options through I.M. or E-mail.


FAQ – How long does it take to process my order?

Every order situation is unique. However, most orders are processed and shipped same day so long as they are in before noon. Furthermore, this obviously depends on many factors including how many cuts your order requires, and how many reels you’ve ordered.
