usually due to residential surcharges, delivery area surcharges,

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

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

$95.00 and up, so consider this when placing a small order and whether
not such cost is worth it to you.
