 Freight costs vary considerably depending on where the buyer and seller are located. ​ In addition, charges may be assessed to a shipment that are not known at the time of a price quote due to location of the delivery, the ability to unload the shipment, etc.  It is very difficult for us to recuperate these charges from a buyer after-the-fact. ​ Another consideration is that we do not accept responsibility for damages after the shipment has left our warehouse. ​ When the buyer makes the arrangements,​ they can negotiate damage coverage at a rate of insurance that is comfortable for them. Freight costs vary considerably depending on where the buyer and seller are located. ​ In addition, charges may be assessed to a shipment that are not known at the time of a price quote due to location of the delivery, the ability to unload the shipment, etc.  It is very difficult for us to recuperate these charges from a buyer after-the-fact. ​ Another consideration is that we do not accept responsibility for damages after the shipment has left our warehouse. ​ When the buyer makes the arrangements,​ they can negotiate damage coverage at a rate of insurance that is comfortable for them.
