Save on Shipping Cost

  • Its best to consolidate orders and place larger orders, the major shippers charge a base fee for shipments. The shipping cost increases by only a small amount as the weight increases.
  • The major carriers charge a large "overweight" fee for shipments of 50 lbs or more. Our website will automatically break your order up into smaller boxes to avoid this fee. However this is not possible when a single item weighs 50 lbs or more (eg 50 bag of citric acid) we suggest opting for our 40 lb bulk boxes when possible to avoid this fee.
  • If your are placing an order of 500 lbs or more, consider the freight truck option at checkout. Much of the time this can be more cost effective then the parcel delivery. We will provide quotes to you for your approval, or you can arrange your own truck. After quotes are provided you can still choose a parcel delivery if you prefer.
