UPS and Fed-Ex now calculate any boxes over 96” at 90 lbs billable weight! Reduce the length of your extrusions to 94” (to give us room to put sufficient packaging at both ends), and the box will be less than 96”. You should see a significant difference in the shipping charge.
We would also suggest to have us cut all the parts to your exact sizes, hopefully reducing the overall length of the box, and the shipping rate. What many customers don’t realize is by trying to save a couple of dollars on cutting charges, they end up paying dozens of dollars more on shipping for longer boxes. Try putting your exact sizes in the cart, and see what the overall cost would be with the shipping. We only charge $0.50 for a square and accurate cut.
For large extrusion orders, please contact us directly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for freight options. The UPS Plug-in on the website is only capable of calculating shipments with small package service.
Finally, we ship from ZIP 12919, and customers pay our discounted rate with UPS. We do not mark up shipping.
