Why is Shipping so EXPENSIVE?
In 2015 UPS revised its shipping rate structure to account for larger boxes with no weight, call a "dimensional" weight. As a result Heartwood has been required to try to discern box sizes for every possible order. This is not possible, so we assume conservatively that each order will use the largest size box that item requires. When it comes time to actually ship the parts, we check the rates against those charge and if the charges are not in line we will refund the difference to at that time. If you are concerned about any shipping rates, please give us a call and we can usually state a pretty close charge.
