The USPS shipping rates calculator has been charging higher than needed postage lately. We have been refunding the excess postage, but it doesn't look like the USPS software will be fixed anytime soon. Its been going on for too long, so we have decided to offer 3 tiered flat rate shipping that hopefully will simplify things.
USA customers will have 3 flat rates. In the shopping cart you can see the rate by using the "Shipping Rate" button:
Most samples and small aluminum gas check orders will ship for $4.99 in a bubble mailer or small box. These small orders are sent First Class Mail Commercial. The medium and large orders will use Priority Mail 2-3 day service. All orders use USPS tracking and we use a 3rd party insurance company.
International rates are calculated by the USPS system based on weight. We only charge the actual cost. Orders are usually shipped using the lower cost First Class International Mail service. If something does not appear right, drop us an email and we will manually quote shipping. For shipping quotes please provide full address in the email.
All prices are in USD.
