1) These can be shipped via UPS, but larger quantities should go on a pallet, via truck. The shipping cost for pallets is based on delivery to a commerical address with a loading dock or forklift. Residential delivery requires additional fees.
2) As an option, we can have the shipment held at a freight company depot near you. You can then pick up your batteries at that depot in order to avoid the residential delivery surcharge. Example, in Texas and surrounding states, we can ship 4 on a pallet for about $ 30.00 per battery, less for 6 or 8 batteries. We sell thousands of betteries, so we get very low freight rates to other areas too. Contact us for an exact quote because rising fuel costs are impacting freight costs!
3) We will not charge your credit card until we are ready to ship. Normally, the next business day.
4) Texas customers must pay sales tax and an Environmental recovery fee of $3.00 per battery.
