How are Shipping and Handling Rates determined?
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 and delivery to a residential address.
When possible we try to combine items in one or more packages based on the weight, size and the type of items being shipped. However not all items cannot be packaged together. We do not want to ship a heavy steel railroad bridge with a fragile item.
Packaging Weight is the total weight of your package. Total packaging weight = item weight plus the packaging material.
Most carriers limit package weight to 70 or less pounds. If the combined weight of multiple items exceed the carriers maximum shipping weight we will split the shipment into multiple packages. 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 is the other major consideration to determine shipping and handling charges. Shipping carriers not only have limitations on the maximum package dimensions that they will ship they may also impose additional charges for larger packages. If shipped items are to large, Shipping Carriers may require the items to be sent by freight trucks. Additional charges and delivery restrictions/ requirements may be imposed for freight deliveries.
