Shipping Rates

Note: We are working on converting our website from a price-based shipping module to one based on weight. This might take a few months to implement and perfect; however, we just could not wait to share this change with you!

During this transition we will evaluate the shipping totals on each and every package prior to leaving our warehouse. We will reduce any excessive UPS or USPS shipping costs and pass on those savings to you!

Here's how to take advantage of this:

  • Place your order as you would normally. We will verify the actual shipping cost from the carrier and reduce any excessive charges before collecting payment from your credit card (for PayPal, we will issue a refund if necessary).
  • You can select "motor freight -- follow-up quote" shipping option and add a note to the comments section that you would like us to "charge and ship via the cheapest method", and we will do just that.
  • You may also request a shipping quote prior to placing an order by emailing Customer Service .

Thank you for your patience with us during the crucial transition process.

The order dollar amount is used to calculate shipping charges. If items in your order do not exceed carrier standards, your shipping cost will be taken from these charts.

If your order exceeds any shipping standards, such as weight, dimensions or number of parcels, the carrier will assess surcharges.

For example, UPS imposes a $10.50 fee on any order that exceeds 30 inches in length, width or depth. USPS also assesses a surcharge on any package greater than 12 inches on any dimension. If you order Acme or threaded rod, the UPS surcharges for dimensions will apply per package. If your order requires multiple boxes, there will be extra charges

If your order does exceed any carrier standards, a customer service representative will contact you with an exact shipping quote. The shipper, not Wholesale Tool, controls and sets charges for exceptions.

Our primary flat rate carrier is United Parcel Service (UPS), but we might choose another service to ensure a proper delivery time. If you specifically want to use UPS or the United States Postal Service (USPS), please indicate this in the comments box at checkout.

We will ship your order from one of the following warehouses that has stock (shipping rate will not change): Michigan, New Jersey, Florida, Illinois, Oklahoma or California.
