Good news! We've been able to renegotiate our rates with Fedex Freight, which means an immediate drop in rates for our freight shipments, while also maintaining the great nationwide service quality of Fedex. These rates are tied into the shipping cost calculator in the cart and checkout screens, so you will now be able to see the lower rates in effect. Previously, the minimum charge for any very large or heavy items (engines, bumpers, hoods, doors, etc) was about $178, but now we've lowered that down significantly to $124 (residential delivery included). For those locations that do not fall into the minimum charge threshold (further from Florida), the rates have come down at least $50 per shipment.
In addition to lowering the rates for the shipments themselves, the liftgate option has also come down in price from around $95, to around $60. This option is necessary when delivering a heavy item to a residence, or a business that does not have a forklift or loading dock.
Don't forget, even our engines, transmissions and large body parts are ready to ship on the same business day if purchased before noon EST!
