Examples on specific products - with regional examples too (all estimates current as of February 2017)
Throughout 2019, it is our goal to make our website mobile friendly and shopping cart friendly. Until then, we still have web pages formatted best for PC's and an ordering form where you have to do a little bit of the work and enter the part numbers. When it comes to a robot calculating shipping, NONE ARE SMART ENOUGH. A robot does not know what box we will use to combine items. A robot does not know that 1, 2, or 3 of the 24" towel bars can fit in the same box and thus ship at the same rate because it is a dimensional size box. And if a robe hook is added in, it can be tucked into the box and still not change the shipping amount. But if you add in a jumbo corner shelf, then we have to use a slightly larger box. If you order a huge piece of wine rack lattice and then some direct ship decorative hardware with the order, again how can the robot calculate box A and box B and know it all. So shipping on your order will be determined by a real person, it will be the rates we are charged by UPS, FedEx, or the post office, and it will not be inflated. We do not gouge our customers. And anyone in the world can see real cost shipping rates on UPS's, FedEx's, and the Postal websites. Nothing is hidden.
We do receive requests for shipping rates and we encourage you to call or e-mail so we can quote you a shipping amount in advance if you would like. Below are examples of amounts we apply for shipping. We're using some of the more popular products for the examples, and we will also show a few weight examples and ranges.
EXAMPLES: (light weight packages)
One pound part examples:
Two pound part examples:
Three to four pound parts:
At our discretion, and if we can fit it into FLAT RATE postal boxes, we will send some heavier items via the Postal System. So each order is given consideration for the best way to travel to you. With over 20 years experience in knowing who delivers what cheaper, faster, or safer, we will take the best approach for you. Safety is considered over cost for very fragile items. We do not stuff Ceramic soap dishes in flat rate boxes allowing for no padding. That is just not smart.
When UPS dimensional rates apply to how ground packages are packed, and some are large, but lightweight, we apply the correct dimensional rate. It really isn't too bad within the Eastern United States. To the west coast, it does end up costing a little more than actual weight. But it is a UPS rule that we cannot fight. We do try to keep package dimensions as minimal as possible on larger boxes.
Four pound and heavier packages:
Lots and lots of cabinet handles can weigh 20 to 50 pounds. Kitchen slide out trash cans can weigh 10 to 15 pounds. Shipping costs are applied at package weight, and dimensional weight in some cases on huge items, and how far they are going. When we ship to Tampa, it is less expensive than shipping to Los Angeles. This is just the systems set forth by USPS, UPS, and FedEx.
For US domestic packages off the continent, we generally ship via the US Postal System (AK, HI, USVI, PR, Guam). For packages to countries outside the US, also, the US Postal System offers better rates. Might take a little longer for travel time, but they have proven themselves ultra reliable.

Sometimes it gets a little wild and noisy around here when Kanji is trying to pack boxes. And if you do
call us and hear the Four-Pug-Alarm going off, that is probably because a vehicle pulled in the driveway. The alarm goes off quickly with the rattle of the treat container.
