How are you shipping them? $200+ seems like a lot. especially if the pieces can be stacked and shipped in a flat box. They probably don't weigh that much either, all together.

I don't make shipping prices... I provide the information on my previous post. It's boxed up in pieces, the pieces are not flat, there are and bends, and correct angles in the design to make it functional, the diffuser itself only weight 15-18 lbs, once packaged, and boxed is 26lbs.. $49.00 for the box and packaging . Box dimensions 53x42x9 22lbs

But ups doesn't really care about the size, more so the weight. 22lbs is nothing and the box is pretty slim. I got a quote from me in Orlando, 32832, to you, 32233 at $27 with 'Additional Handling' which is what they say when a box has one side with a length over 48 inches. Add your packaging costs and thats 77 from you to me.

I'm out of the group buy as I have something else going on, but $254 for shipping is a lot. It cost me less in shipping to get a big brake kit from Russia to my door.

Mateo m3, good luck with your business, no mal-intention on my part and please do stick around as a vendor as well, we need innovative guys like you to keep improving the platform.

as a business person, you must realize that you are going to kill any potential for business with such high shipping costs compared to the price of the actual item

you should hire someone to figure out the logistics for you

As I stated before shipping is extremely high due to the large size of the unit.. we ship with UPS. If you guys would like to recommend a better way of shipping I'm all ears..
Like the others said, shipping is killing the deal. You should find a way to lay it flat in the box. I donít mind having to rivet or bolt it together if everything comes ready.

Also, for Canadian costumers UPS is the worst company for exaggerated costums fees. They could charge me a 1-300$ fee on top of the shipping costs. You better use USPS even if itís a little longer.

Greyhound is probably your best bet...as long as the customer is near, or willing to drive to, a Greyhound Depot, it will be the cheapest option.

Same haha. I suggested he should split the piece in two as i dont think it would change the aerodynamics...would probably cut shipping in half too.

I understand what you are saying. Once again I do not make the shipping prices.. I'm still working on a better shipping solution..

not sure how you have your diffuser setup but the one I just bought from Russia was 3 separate pcs. middle section and then 2 sides. this allows them to make the shipping box small as possible and bring down the cost dramatically. maybe something to look in to.

The FedEx quote was for your boxing, as you specified, per your dimensions...I don't think anyone would balk at $52-80 shipping (+ reasonable packing costs).

What could be easier than having FedEx pick up, or dropping off a pile at a FedEx depot or FedEx Office location...?

Good luck.

He quoted $260 from FL to NY. I'd imagine you will get reamed.
