Default OMG The shipping

Ok, i need a 7.00 part. I dont mind paying the money for the part. But on redcats webpage they want 5.75 for 6-12day 17.00 for 2-3day and a whopping 30.00 for next day. OMG this part doesnt way but onces. Im not sure how they can justify these kind of shipping rates, and im curious for an explanation.

that standard price for fedex groung that why it better to buy a bunch of parts and shipping stays the same
it would be hard for them to ship out 1000 of packages a day through different carriers so guess your stuck either pay it or buy a bunch and pay it shipping doesnt change

or you could encourage your LHS to carry redcat line then they pay for shipping HAHA
thats the only alternatives

Topspeedtoys is were its at. The shipping on the part would only be 2.88 i had more to order so i did. Priority 2-3day costed only 4.00. So if you need parts and do not want to pay more for shipping than the parts cost. Swing on by to www.topspeedtoys.com they are good.

TOP SPEED TOYS IS THE BEST. NOT ONLY IS THE SHIPPING CHEAP, BUT THEY GET THE PARTS TO YOU FAST. ANDWHEN YOU BREAK SOMETHING EVERYTIME OUT, FAST SHIPPING IS THE GREATEST!!!

Dennis,

When the post office says they will deliver in a certain time isn't there a guarantee of some kind ?? Not your fault, but they should be accountable.

Any part i ordered from clermont i got in 3 days or less, i have used him several times and never had a problem, his shipping is super fast. Topspeedtoys sent me a package from california and i got it in less than 3 days too.

Hope you feel better soon dennis.
