We have raised our shipping cost and also added extra charges for the shipment of longer lengths (> 1000mm).
The biggest change is with the longer lengths. UPS, and all other couriers, charges additional cost handling packages that are over 1000mm in length or width. The gap between what we charge and what we are charged has become too wide to be economically sound to absorb.
Regular shipping cost have gone up through the years, but have risen dramatically since the start of the covid 19 pandemic.
