FREE SHIPPING OR NOT?
We Do Not Ship to Alaska/Hawaii, APO/FPO, US Protectorates
Whoever offers you free shipping is typically hiding the cost somewhere or inflating the cost somewhere, unless they have deep pockets and can afford it, which is extremely rare. Let me use Amazon as an example, they spend roughly 2 billion dollars annually on shipping. Why? To beat out all their competitors.
Amazon has an annual membership fee of $119.00. So really shipping is not exactly free. They just make you pay for it upfront. Of course, it depends on how you utilize Amazon if that $119.00 is worth the cost to you. So it all goes back to,
"Nothing is really free"
I am not here to throw Amazon under the bus, It's just half the world uses Amazon one way or another. Plus, their business is what it is because of free shipping. So Amazon is an excellent example to explain my point.
Why does Carson Parts not offer free shipping?
We made the decision to show our customers the true current value of every part we list. When you add shipping cost it brings the part to its original market value. Shipping costs are determined by product or part(s) size,weight,box or envelope size it is shipped in. For more information on shipping prices at USPS, please click on the link below.
