How do I save on shipping costs?
If you can, try to order more products- less frequently. The larger the shipment, the more money you will save per pound on shipping. If your order exceeds 200 lbs, we will contact freight companies and provide quotes for shipping on a pallet instead of UPS. Shipping on a pallet can save a significant amount on shipping costs.
