We ship primarily via common carrier on a pallet. This is a very safe and economical way to send furniture. Items are wrapped individually, put on the skid, wrapped into a unit and then shrink wrapped and strapped for stability. It can difficult (and expensive) to ship individual items because we are not able to wrap in this manner, causing less stable and less safe shipments.
As our margins are low, we cannot absorb freight costs like some other furniture suppliers. Some companies offer "flat 10% freight (15%, etc)", but please recognize they are often absorbing a portion of the actual freight cost and it's really just built into the cost of your items. We do not build freight into our prices and only charge the actual amount of shipping to your destination, and in this manner we are able to keep our prices as low as possible for all dealers.
