OT...Wheel Shipping Surcharges

OT...but those that sell/buy/ship wheels like handbags, did you guys know there was a ~special handeling charge~ with some carriers. I go through my various sets and sold a set of winters back in October and never got charged a surcharge for the longest I can remember.

I do the usual clean the wheel, cardboard on both faces of the wheel and then use the saran wrap and wrap like no tomorrow. Usually takes me on average 2 hrs to pack a set of 4 wheels......

Go figure but I recently sold a set of wheel/tire combos...and got a 2nd invoice after it was received by the recipient with a special handling surcharge. Turns out UPS is charging a special handling charge if the wheel is not on a fully enclosed corrugated box.

Just some ya'll should account this into your shipping price so you don't take a loss on shipping FWIW...
