Shipping - Costly, unfortunately

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

I get emails quite often asking if I can build a sump for them, and if I can ship it. Yes, I can and have for some time now. However, I've finally gotten to the point that I just have to review and update the shipping part of the equation. For a long time, I boxed up sumps for free, only charging what it cost in materials plus what FedEx charges.

After taking the time to box up three sumps this week and getting hammered by shipping rates higher than expected, I've decided I have to quit doing this for free. Each sump takes an hour to pack, plus the time & gas I spend running around getting supplies and dropping it off at FedEx/Kinkos.

Need some pictures? Of course you do! Why does shipping cost so much?

I hope this clears things up a little. I wish it could be done more cheaply, and that I didn't have to work so hard getting it ready for transit. So for that, I do apologize, but I can't think of anyone else on this planet doing what I've done, and thus I'm making these changes.
