How is shipping charges calculated?
Freight charges are calculated automatically by the UPS computer based on weight, dimensions and the zip code where the item(s) are being shipped to.
Our website links to the UPS computer and pulls back those charges. We do not add a charge to the total the UPS computer gives us (aside from the S/H fee which is a separate line item and a fixed, flat fee). The total freight charge that you see on your order comes directly from the carrier.
Unfortunately, with the increase in gas prices, shipping costs have gone up with all carriers. We will use the fastest, economical carrier for your order.
