About Us

Situated in Nanaimo on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Our company Karscot Distributors© was established in the fall of 1993. Initially our primary products were educational resources for schools and home educators. As you move through our website you will see that some of our products are still geared to children and to education.

It wasn't too long before we branched into the inflatable Amusement ride industry, importing, selling, and exporting amusement equipment as well as renting amusement rides. Now that we had a rental division we had to establish a name that our clients could relate to therefore in 1997 we changed our name to the double barreled name of Karscot Distributors / Fun Zone© which properly reflects the diverse nature of our business and our products, and services.

Since our inception we have added sterling silver, gold chains, and other jewelry. As well as a variety of gift products that include watches, novelties, board games, videos, toys etc. As we progress through 2005 and beyond you will see the addition of other unique products. Because we wholesale products we are in a position to offer sourcing services to retail vendors. If there is a particular product that you are looking for just ask us we may be able to source it for you.

Our products are sold primarily around Canada, and the United States, and as far away as Macau in Asia, Bermuda, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Philippines, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, and Brazil to name but a few. We have many satisfied customers that we would be happy to refer you to. Please ask.

We attempt to provide new, and unique products. That are of the best quality, at a competitive price. Whenever, and wherever possible we like to deal with Canadian, US, or European manufacturers. However, that is not always possible and sometimes we must have products made in China. In those instances we pay the manufacturers asked price, unlike some of the huge box stores who drive down the price of manufactured goods to the extent that the manufacturer cuts cost by reducing pay and or firing workers and having less workers doing the same amount of work, or by compromising the quality of the products.

Because we are always on the look out for new and innovative products, if you are an inventor or manufacturer that has a product or an idea for a product by all means please contact us we may be able to help you market your products. 

Customer service is of paramount importance to us. We endeavor to respond quickly to your requests. When we receive your email, or phone call. Under normal circumstances you can expect a reply either that day or within 24 hours. Please be aware that we are located in a Pacific time zone, therefore our day starts at 8am. PST. That means for you folk in New York or Florida. We are just starting our day when you are having lunch. If you call us before that time you most likely will get our voice mail.

Privacy Policy:
We value our customers, and we respect their privacy. We assure you that we will not knowingly give out personal or confidential information to any person or entity unless you instruct us in writing to do so. Nor will we give out or sell to any third party, or entity,  your email, phone, or other contact information.

Secure purchasing online:
Most purchases off our website can be performed using the Paypal buttons. Paypal is a third party service that transacts online transactions for more than ten million customers. By using Paypal you know that your transaction, and your personal information is safe. Also Paypal uses SSL (Secured Socket Layer) technology. Which encrypts your information when you make purchases using credit card or other such payment methods. When you click on the Paypal button found on our website you will be taken to the secure form page. When you shop on the internet ALWAYS look for the 'Secure' site indicators. You can check this by looking in the location bar of your browser. All secure ordering  sites will have the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or web address as it is commonly referred to with the following at the beginning https the 'S' is the indication that the page is a secure page. Normally before you are transferred to a secure page a drop down warning will appear advising you that you are being transported to a secure page.

Another way to tell if a page is secure is to look to the left corner of your browser (Netscape) if the page is secure you will see a padlock image that will be in the locked position and highlighted. In a non-secured page this padlock icon will appear as an open padlock, and it will not be highlighted.

Shopping via the World Wide Web can be both fun, and rewarding. However, as with shopping offline it can also be costly and risky from a financial point of view. To avoid being a victim of internet fraud there are certain steps that you can take to protect yourself. Here are a few suggestions that may be helpful:

1) Never deal with a company that uses a box number for an address.

2) Before you purchase any products (particularly high ticket products)  from a website. Contact the principle owners of the company. Make sure you have ALL their contact information. Ask how long they have been in business. Ask for the phone number of the town or municipal office that issued their license. Phone the licensing office and ask how long the company has been in business. Ask for the name of their ISP (Internet Service Provider) Ask for referrals of people who have purchased from them, and follow up with them.

3) Never give out any information to anyone until you are satisfied that they are who they claim to be, they are a legally established company, they have been around for what you deem to be a reasonable period of time, you have all of their contact information, and the information that you send  is not going to be compromised, or possibly intercepted by a third party, and you are confident that the recipient is going to respect your confidentiality.

4) Wherever possible use a third party purchasing method like PayPal, or Verisign etc. When you use one of these types of service usually there is no fee to you. Also the person or company you are purchasing from does not get  access to your credit card information, which offers a reasonable degree of protection. There are many such services on the internet check out sites like Ebay and see what they are using. In some instances especially on high priced items vendors will not accept credit cards or Paypal because the high merchant fees they must pay, in those instances they may require bank wire's which are fine with legitimate companies, but do you homework BEFORE you transact.

Remember at the end of the day there are no guarantees in life. Caution is the watchword and the old adage is as true on the internet as in everyday life 'If it sounds to good to be true, then the chances are overwhelming that it is'
