Lowest Cost Truck Freight Shipping in USA!

PostBy: dcrane On: Sat Sep 21, 2013 5:44 am

High cost truck freight shipping is a necessary evil at times for manufactures, customers, stove shops and dealers of any kind of stove!
I'm not sure where in the forum to place this highly classified secret but its a secret that has real world value and we at NepaCrossroads deserve to have it! :secret:
After recently shipping many types of stoves all across the country (Oregon, Ohio, Maine), I've personally confirmed this is like hitting the lottery.

A company called Fastenal is a distributer of hardware products to every state (maybe beyond?), seemingly the keep this lil' known secret close to the vest...
They are also a freight company :shock: They accept large freight boxes which get placed along side their products to be delivered to any of their 1 bizzilion locations across the country! The only drawback is they require you to drop off the box to any of their locations and they require the receiver to pick his box up at any of their locations (NO PROBLEM... who wants to sit home all day waiting for a truck to come to your driveway anyways, id much prefer to drive it a couple miles down the street at my leisure and on MY Clock!)

This company makes this service available at a fraction of the real cost to ship these large stoves (when I say fraction... I don't mean 1/2 the cost... I mean much less than that!!!) Can you see the genius behind this service :clap: It cost them a grand total of $0.00 to ship your item (Its 100% profit to them!!!)... Im still in Awe we actually have a company this intelligent still in America (they must be near Leisure Line stoves or something and they must still make brains in that part of the country toothy )

Credits go to our good friend McGiever and others im sure for discovering another fantastic American Company!
Here is the info you need if you wish to save hundreds of dollars shipping a large crate/stove/etc. across the country

http://www.fastenal.com/web/en/22/third ... -%283pl%29

Just to give you some idea of cost... McGiever can confirm what he paid but I think it was about $140 to ship 2 large crates (1 as tall as me weighing 350 lbs, and 1 smaller one weighing in at 80+ lbs) half way across the country! I also shipped a large crate weighing in at 200lbs all the way to Oregon (The Pacific Freeekin Ocean!) for $125.00... anyone who knows anything knows these prices might as well be FREE! :up:
