Calculating Shipping charge

UPS†and†FedEx†will begin charging by dimensional weight on December 29 and January 1, respectively.

Instead of charging by weight alone, packages will now be charged according to size.†This means that box dimensions are now more (or equally) as important as weight.†

Industry experts†predict†that approximately one-third of all packages will be affected by this change.†

Hereís a practical example of what this looks like for a domestic shipment.

Letís say youíre shipping a domestic ground package in a 12x12x12 box. It weighs 4 pounds, and itís going in Zone 2.

Your calculation would be 12x12x12 / 166 = 10.4 dimensional weight (round up to 11).

The dimensional weight (11 lbs) is greater than the actual weight (4 lbs). Therefore, your shipping charge is calculated on an 11 pound package. This results in a 24% price increase for this package, compared to non-dimensional weight rates. .

We consider our shipping charges to be a Shipping & Handling charge. This means that we take into consideration the prevailing shipping rate, (supplied by the U.S. Postal Service, Federal Express, and UPS), plus the cost of materials including boxes, cushioning materials, shipping labels, etc. to calculate the Shipping & Handling charge for each package. In most cases the total cost of shipping a package in greater than the amount charged to the customer. You may calculate the cost of shipping by using our "Calculate Shipping" feature available on the "Shopping Basket" page. You must add an item to your basket before this feature is available. All shipping options displayed may not pertain to your particular order.

The shipping charge you select is the final shipping amount you are charged. The method may be changed at our discretion based on the products you have ordered. We do not attempt to bill you later for additional shipping charges, nor do we refund shipping charges based on a lower rate that you could have selected.
