WHY WOULD YOU SWITCH ME FROM FEDEX TO USPS, OR FROM USPS TO FEDEX?
Our business is unique in that most orders are never the same.
We cannot configure a system to anticipate the packaging of every combination
of the various sizes that any one customer may order nor the quantity, weight
and dimensions of every package. Therefore, human intervention at the
warehouse level is the final determinant of such.
We may change your delivery service because the actual shipping and
packaging cost has exceeded the cost shown on your order. This
is usually due to residential surcharges, delivery area surcharges, oversize
charges, and "dimensional weight' adjustments that cannot be determined
in the shopping cart until your order is actually packaged.
As an example, let's assume FedEx was $13.00 and USPS was $14.50,
so you chose FedEx. Upon shipping, the actual FedEx cost is higher at
$19.25 and USPS is $16.00. If we decide to accept the loss rather
than hit you with upcharges, we would ship it USPS so we would be
accepting a $1.50 loss with USPS instead of the higher $6.25 loss with
WHAT ARE THE SHIPPING CHARGES? WHAT IS MOTOR FREIGHT?
THAT SHIP USPS & FedEx
USPS & FedEx Shipping Charges Are Based On Weight
And Destination. You don't need to fill everything out in the shopping cart
to see your USPS & FedEx charges, simply enter the destination Zip Code and click 'recalculate'.
Unless you have a MOTOR FREIGHT order, a USPS & FedEx Linked Database Shows You The Approximate
USPS & FedEx Charges Prior To
Final Checkout. We ship USPS & FedEx every business day. In some
instances due to weight, volume, and/or quantity of your package(s), some
carriers or forms of shipping may not display in your shopping cart if they
are not applicable to your order.
ITEMS THAT SHIP MOTOR
Items too large for USPS or FedEx must ship motor freight (semi-truck/tractor
trailer) and will usually say MOTOR FREIGHT
ONLY in the item title or description.
We require a $500.00 minimum order of motor freight only merchandise
for any order that contains a MOTOR FREIGHT ONLY item. Motor freight orders are
generally shipped via semi-truck. Motor freight orders are based on weight,
class, and destination. There is a minimum charge for Motor Freight, usually
$95.00 and up, so consider this when placing a small order and whether or
not such cost is worth it to you.
MOTOR FREIGHT CHARGES ARE ADDITIONAL AND
WILL NOT BE SHOWN IN YOUR SHOPPING CART, but will be added and charged
to your bill after your approval.
We will email you the the motor freight
cost for your approval before proceeding with your order.
Instead of motor freight items, you may wish to
consider buying a piece(s) 36” X 48” or smaller, which can ship USPS or FedEx
with no MOTOR FREIGHT minimum order amount. Add such smaller
piece(s) to the shopping cart, enter your zip code and hit recalculate to
see USPS & FedEx charges.
We will not quote motor freight charges unless
and until you place an order.
That means you're serious
enough for us to spend some time shopping a good rate for you, and we will
work to find you the best rate we possibly can. We will then email you
the cost and give you an opportunity to proceed or cancel your order.
Note: Many times Motor Freight
is relatively expensive when compared to the cost of the item(s) you are purchasing.
If this is the case, you may wish to consider buying a piece(s) that is 36”
X 48” or smaller, which can ship USPS or FedEx. You will then see the
USPS & FedEx charges when you add it to your shopping cart. Also,
as an example, if a customer orders 1 or 2 sheets that ship motor freight,
it usually is only a small percentage more to ship additional sheets on that
pallet. For example, if you plan a trip that is a few hundred miles
and it costs $100.00 in gas, if you take more people with you the cost of
the trip doesn’t double or triple, it only increases slightly due to the
increased weight of the passengers.
