Wonder why shipping is so high? Do you know, there are over 42,000 zip codes in the USA and approximately 55% have a Delivery Area Surcharge (DAS). It's a $3.35 to $4.20 surcharge for living to far from the Fedex or UPS hub.
Plus, all residential deliveries incur a $3.45 residential surcharge.
Plus, every delivery has a fuel surcharge that increased when gas prices decreased.
Plus, the carriers charge a weekly pick-up fee.
Plus, the credit card companies collect their percentage fees for processing your order.
Plus, there is packaging and labor cost to properly package your order.
And finally, there is the actual "box" shipping rate that Fedex and UPS charge to ship the box..
Our Fedex and UPS reps have confirmed: The small shippers, like us, subsidize the big boys, like Amazon. We do our best to control costs but as you can see, there is more to it than just the cost of a box.
Wonder how long before your order is delivered? We do our best to ship the same day or no later than the next day. Special orders may be an exception and require a couple additional days. Below is our zone map for FedEx. We email the tracking number but this should give you an idea on transit times for your location.
We offer reduced shipping, based on order dollar volume, including free shipping.
