All small parcels/packages that are sold to an address within the 50 states of America have the shipping costs included in the price. The only exclusion to this is for anyone who purchases an item that designates "Freight Shipping."
Freight shipping requires that the item is transported with a semi due to the size and/or weight. Typically we have included the general freight charges in the price. HOWEVER, there may be additional charges if the purchaser needs to use the lift gait OR additional fees outside of the freight haul are incurred.
International & U.S. Territories:
All small parcels/packages that are sold to an address within the 50 states of America have the shipping costs included in the price. However, you will see an additional $20 shipping fee at check out. This fee covers all taxes, duties, currency conversion, and tariffs that may/will incur to deliver your item(s) purchased.
Freight shipping for international orders & U.S. Territories will have an additional $3,000 fee. This is to cover the cost of sending your item to the coast and transporting it with a cargo ship to the nearest port. Upon arrival to the port, a local trucking company will deliver the item to your shipping location. Please be advised that additional fees may incur from the local trucking company for the use of the lift gate or any other additional fees (depending on local custom).
U.S. Territories are areas overseen by the U.S. government. However, they have not be given 'state' status nor representation within the governing bodies.
International- All addresses outside of the 50 U.S. borders and territories.
LTL- Less than a load freight. A semi is used to deliver an item that does not take up the entire trailer. There are additional fees for delaying the driver beyond the designated offload period (generally 2 hours). In addition, a customer may incur additional charges from using the lift gait.
The lift gait is a hydraulic gate on the back of the semi trailer that brings freight down to the ground level. This is important for heavy loads than can't be transferred to a pickup truck or down to the ground safely. Moreover, the lift gait is important for anyone who does not have access to a docking bay for offloading.
