UPS is great for many shipments but there are limitations. These limitation are in weight of the piece and length of the piece. The max weight per piece to be able to ship via UPS ground is 150 lbs. Any pieces over 150 lbs would have to ship via an LTL freight carrier. As far as length goes, UPS will only ship packages under 108”, for this reason the max length you can order is 100” per piece. If you need a longer or heavier piece feel free to contact our office directly and we can arrange other methods to get your order to you.
Reasons why we use UPS
· Tracking - UPS has by far the most comprehensive tracking system we've found. We're able to send you an email at the time of shipment with the tracking number, so you can see the progress of your order across the country.
· Systems - With the UPS tools, not only can we accurately estimate delivery time, but we can also determine in advance if there is a problem and let you know so you can plan effectively (see our philosophy on "telling bad news fast.") Also, we are able to determine the day that your material will arrive, and we send you an e-mail giving you a heads-up in case you need to make special arrangements for delivery.
· Efficiency - When processing orders, shipping via UPS is very efficient because of the tremendous degree of integration that they offer us. Greater efficiency = lower costs for you.
· Price and Value - We've priced out other shipping services, and found that from top to bottom UPS is the best value of all the shipping services
For shipments heavier that 150lbs that cannot be broken up into multiple packages, we use Fed Ex Freight. Our system calculates Fed Ex Freight Economy rates live on our site. Make sure to specify if you need a lift gate and if your ship to address is a commercial or residential location.
