SHIPPING POLICIES

Shipping and Handling charges will be added to the total purchase price and are the responsibility of the customer. Discounts and Coupon Codes do not apply to Shipping Charges.

How Does Our Shipping Calculator Compute Shipping and Handling Rates?

Our shipping calculator offers flexible and powerful shipping rate calculations that go beyond the simple shipping calculators offered by the various shipping carriers. The calculator takes into account, insurance, packaging materials, type and size of items, weight, handling fees, and the combining of multiple items together.

Our calculator will examine all items in the Cart and based on the shipping destination and the items in the cart will determine the best possible shipping option available.

Shipping carriers typically base their rates on the following: Shipping origination and final destination, packaging weight, package dimensions, type of contents and extras such as insurance.

Packaging Method

Our shipping calculator allows us to specify items that can be combined together or must be shipped separately. The methology is based on the items dimensions, weight, the type of items. We do not want to ship a heavy steel railroad bridge with a fragile item.

Packaging Weight

Packaging Weight is the total weight of your package. Total packaging weight = item weight plus the packaging material. The shipping calculator uses a sliding scale to determine the packaging weight. Packaging weight is added based on item incremental weight increases.  Shipping carriers base the shipping rates on the total packaging weight.

Maximum Weight

Our shipping calculator recognizes that each carrier has their own weight limitation that may vary. Most carriers limit package weight to 70 or less pounds.  The calculator will automatically split a shipment into multiple packages when any carriers limits are exceeded. In addition in some cases we may specify a preferred maximum weight per package such as 40 pounds to help ensure that an item can be packaged securely and economically. Items that exceed our maximum specified weight will automatically be split into multiple packages.

Package Dimensions

Package dimensions is the other major consideration to determine shipping and handling charges.  Shipping carriers not only have limitations on maximum package dimensions that they will ship they may also impose additional charges for larger packages. Our shipping calculator will take this into consideration to determine the a single or multiple package shipment is required.

After reviewing the shipping options we may find it necessary to ship your products via an alternate carrier due to circumstances beyond our control.
