Default Front Lip shipping

I was just looking for a front lip and this got me doing a WTF!

$77 to ship a front lip that is folded in 1/2... WOW!

I just checked and it's ~$17 to mail a 8"x8"x48" box that weighs 5lbs, or $28 through UPS.

Talk about making $$ with shipping! I sent them a message to see if they want to work with me on this... I think no, but who knows.

No Alaska doesn't suck, but companies that can't do accurate shipping quotes suck!

Sure I know it costs more to ship here, no big deal, but they are trying to charge about $50 over actual shipping charges. Must be a gold lined box!

It actually usually doesn't cost more to ship things to Alaska, especially on Priority mail. They're just ripping us off.

I got an email back...

Hi,

First of all, we dont ship item out by UPS. We ship only by US Postal Service for small items, Fedex for mid-size item and Freight company for larger item. The shipping cost that we charge doesnt only cover the actual postage fee but also inlcude the packaging, materials, and labors.

I checked and FedEx is pretty much the same as UPS and USPS to ship the same size box.

So, must have gold lined boxes and union workers...

Flat rate boxes are your friend.
