Quotation Process

We would appreciate the opportunity to create a Quotation for any and every situation. The only limitation is quotations for the freight for the International leg of a potential order. See below for International requests. Note: we will be happy to quote Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico however it may take up to an additional business day for us to secure the best rates.

Even though we look forward to processing all requests for a quotation, we need to be clear on what you should expect. Our pricing has been developed to be some of the lowest prices on the internet when matching apples to apples. With that said, most quotations will reflect the same prices as posted and we use the same freight calculator as the shopping cart therefore the quotation may not offer any different results than that of the shopping cart totals.

We normally can present a quotation with more aggressive pricing based on some subjective quantities. As a rule unless you are looking to buy more product than the posted price breaks show,your quotation will most likely reflect posted pricing.

We will also be running promotional pricing each quarter for different product lines. Typically those sale prices cannot be beat with most typical quantities. However, feel free to give us a call or when you get to the shopping cart press the “add to quote” button and we will look at each situation individually.

The point is “when in doubt, request a quote”. Even though we ask for 48 hours for the preparation of a quote, it is not unusual to receive a response in a matter of a couple of business hours. Very large quantities that may ship cheaper by contracting a "full truck" will normally take one business day for a response from the carriers.

International Quotations – I’m sorry but we do not quote international freight including Canada and Mexico. All potential International customers must have a US domestic Freight Forwarder shipping point OR we can present a quote FOB factory. If you want a quote FOB factory please contact us with the model numbers and quantities and we will create a quote with the proper notations or weight, cube and factory US zip code. This will allow your freight forwarder to calculate the “door to door” freight for you. If you would prefer a quotation with us shipping from the factory to a domestic US shipping point, please just go through the normal quotation process using the domestic US forwarder’s name address, contact person and US phone number and we will quote the inland freight plus provide the weight and cube to allow your forwarder to calculate the International leg for you.
