Important note on freight and Conditions of Sale Regarding Freight
Since the freight costs with each order are different Ecowarm generates a custom freight quote. Usually these freight quotes will be what you are charged unless the rate or fule tax surcharge has significantly changed. . Board shipments are sent out by UPS Freight or LTL by a trucking company. The cheapest way to ship these boards is to ship them to a commercial location, with regular business hours that has a fork lift and personel available to unload them. The most typical extra charge is the delivery to a construction site and requirements for a lift truck when a fork lift is not available.
Below is a list of special services that affect freight charges:
1. Inside Pick – up or Delivery (means no elevator access)
3. Limited Access Delivery ( means Construction Sites, Churches, Schools etc.)
