Why is shipping so expensive?

Shipping costs have risen considerably due to fuel cost. FedEx now has, not only, a fuel surcharge, but a delivery area surcharge and a residential delivery surcharge. This is common with all commercial carriers (UPS, DHL, etc..) We add a minimal charge for packing materials. Currently this is 0 to 1% of shipping cost on ground orders. We hope this explains a little about your shipping fees and why they might vary, or seem higher than you expected. If you are shopping online, then your shipping will be calculated via a live connection to the FedEx web servers. If you are shipping outside the continental United States. We use the US Postal Service to ship these orders. Please contact us by email or phone for a price quote.
