Our shopping cart is designed to be easy for you to use.
Please note that while our cart has products for sale, but you won't be purchasing your items directly from the shopping cart. Instead, you'll be adding the product(s) you want into your cart and submitting a request for quotation (product plus freight costs). We'll then calculate and add freight to provide you with a customized quotation. If you choose to order you'll do so by phone with a credit card or by mailing a check.
Because we sell heavy, bulky products in a variety of sizes, configurations and freight classes from numerous shipping centers around the country, it's not possible for us to automate the freight estimating part of your customized quotation. That is done manually by our staff who are experts in shopping for the best freight rates.
You'll notice that we do not require payment information during the process. If you choose to purchase from us, you won't be doing it online.
Our ordering process in a nutshell:
You are not committed to any orders you place in the shopping cart. You are simply requesting a customized, detailed quotation including product and freight.
- You tell us what products you want by adding them to your cart and submitting what amounts to a quotation request to us
- We shop around for the best freight rate for your product(s)
- We generate a customized quotation and transmit it to you in a timely fashion
- You decide whether you want to purchase the product(s) or not
- You order either by phone (credit card) or by check (snail mail)
Some companies approximate freight and give a static cost (including shipping) on their carts. Other wholesalers charge a flat shipping fee or freight costs based on a dollar percentage of your order. But receiving a customized shipping quotation based on your specific product(s) and location will certainly save you money. While it involves an extra step for us, it's the fairest deal for you.
If you truly want a quotation that you can truly compare apples-to-apples with another, allow us to provide you with a no-obligation personalized quotation, including shipping.
Your business is important to us. We know that if you're requesting a quotation from us you're likely getting at least a couple other quotes. All we're asking for is a fair shot at earning your business.
If you have any questions about our on-line quotation system or ordering process, please call us at (888) 231-9790, M-F 8-4:30 pm EST. Thank you.
