LOCATION-BASE ADDITIONAL FREIGHT COSTS
In some cases, shipping may cost more than the price you see and pay on our website. Why does this happen? What are your options if it does? Freight companies sometimes incur additional costs, because it costs them more to ship to some addresses than others. The reasons vary, but are most often due to remote locations, country roads, high freight tax jurisdictions, residential addresses, etc. When they incur this cost, they pass it on to us. We will not know if your address is subject to this additional cost until our team starts coordinating your order, after you have paid for it. If you have been in contact with us before placing your order, we may be able to catch it ahead of time. Our website assumes that your address is not subject to these additional freight costs, and roughly 95% of the time, that assumption is correct. So, shipping rates listed on our website, and paid at the time of purchase, do not include these additional costs. For the 5% or so that are affected, there are a couple of options.
1. Ship to another address. Most often, the additional cost is because the address is difficult to pull a very large truck into - often a building that is or was previously a residence. In this case, they will have to offload your item(s) and load them onto a smaller truck, causing the expense. Most of our customers who fall into this category have another, more accessible commercial address. You can simply ship to the alternate address and avoid the cost altogether.
2. Pay the additional $150. Nobody likes unexpected costs. We understand that. If we could warn you ahead of time, we really would.
SHIPPING TO CANADA
If you are a Canadian customer, please be aware that the shipping process will not follow the standard flat rate shipping cost and estimate applied to our US based customers. Instead, we will use the business address you provide to calculate a precise shipping cost based on the distance, weight, and dimensions of your items. Once this estimate has been calculated, we will send you a revised invoice to account for the additional shipping cost. Please keep in mind that it is your responsibility to cover any Estimated Duties, Taxes, and Fees that may be required to clear customs in Canada. After you have reviewed and approved the revised invoice and any additional costs, we will process your order and provide you with a tracking number for your shipment when available. Please note that delivery may take longer than expected due to customs processing.
