We represent the manufacturers in most cases and ship direct from them. Each has it’s own preference for shipping so even though you select fedex, it may actually arrive via UPS, but with the same specified delivery timeframe.
The item is 60″ plus packaging. So while it does not weigh a lot, there are special charges for packages over 40″ in length.
We don’t ship just one item. Our minimum order is $200 to maintain the integrity of our volume business. You’ll find that when you estimate for volume orders the shipping pricing matches actual shipping charges, plus the current shippers added fuel charge. Shipping rates are calculated live from our shipper.
