Pfertz shipping


I really wanted to take advantage of the clearance sale Pfertz is offering but after calculating shipping, I found the shipping to cost more than the actual product. $43 for shipping to California from Arizona? Seriously?

It's possible that it could be an error, unless you were ordering a lot of products. I would contact them via email to get a more accurate shipping quote.

Just ordered 3 small bottles of macros last week. 2nd day air to PA was still less than cost of ferts. Regular ground was $13 or so but I needed them by the weekend.

I'm not sure what caused the shipping to be so high, as I don't know what you were intending to order, but I can assure you that we don't set the shipping prices - the carriers do. Our cart is tied directly to UPS' & USPS' shipping tables on the back end. The price you see quoted for shipping is a direct reflection of what we pay to ship it, nothing more, nothing less.

Change the shipping to USPS priority, the default shipping is UPS ground which starts at 25$.

Solo - it looks like your shipping ended up being $11.xx - what did you end up changing to get the cost lower?

It definitely shouldn't be $30 to ship a simple solution, unless it is being shipped very far or very fast. What shipping method are you choosing, and where is it being shipped to?

I just checked shipping for a High Tech Solution to 76384 (texas), and it was only $15.xx

I assume this is for shipping to Hawaii? Unfortunately the shipping rates to Hawaii have gone through the roof over the last couple years

That being said, its cheaper to go with USPS, which brings its down by a few dollars.

Yup, unfortunately the major carriers don't like to take heavy boxes to Alaska
