Dealer Terms and Application
Effective January 1, 2015, ALL
UPS and FedEx rates will be calculated using dimensional weight. Many of the items we sell are light in weight but bulky. After the new calculation method takes effect, an item that weighs 1 pound that has to ship in a box designated for 5 pounds, will be charged the rate for a 5 pound box, and so on. This change in the way shipping rates are calculated will make shipping a single item more expensive than ever. Shipping a second item will reduce the shipping cost per item substantially, so we encourage combining orders with friends and family, or ordering spare parts in advance.
Shipping Rate Notice
Effective January 1, 2017, UPS and FedEx rates will increase 4.9% across the board, and dimensional weight calculations will increase on average 20%, (Twenty Percent!!)
