Exact Rates for UPS ground service to all customers in the contiguous 48 states maybe obtained by looking at the chart to the left.
If you choose a special shipping method (next day air, 2nd day air, 3 day select, or priority mail) then shipping costs are $7.50 plus "Actual Shipping Costs".
"Actual Shipping Costs" are determined by the carrier and are calculated with the size of the package, weight of the package, and distance. "Actual Shipping Costs" cannot be calculated or estimated until the order has been picked and packed. A Customer Service Representative will phone you to provide the entire costs of shipping if the shipping costs are above 40% of the merchandise total. This call will occur the very next business day after your order has been entered into our system. (ie: Order is entered into the website on 4:00 PM Tuesday, our representative downloads and enters orders on Wednesday at 8:00 AM, the order then gets picked and packed and costs are obtained no later than Thursday. At that time a phone call will be made.)
"Oversized Items" must be shipped by truck. For these items a $65 surcharge will be applied. This is a per order charge - Most other shipments are made by UPS. Some smaller shipments and customers in APO's, HI, AK and PR will receive shipments by Parcel Post. Oversize shipments will be made by private trucking firms. All other shipments, export or otherwise are made in the most economical and reliable manner.
