How is shipping calculated on your site?
Most of our products are heavy and must be shipped via local common carrier. Because Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) shipments are difficult to automatically price, we have opted to have online purchases be FOB one of NorthWest Handling Systems' branch locations. We have opted to do this manually to come up with the best shipping option for our customers. Whereas this creates the need to bill your credit card twice, it will be more economical and accurate for you.
Why do some of your website products not have shipping information?
Our website can calculate UPS shipments on items weighing up to 149 lbs. Because most of our equipment will be over this total, we have to sell them F.O.B. one of our branches. Shipment will often require one of our delivery vehicles or an Over-the-Road trucking company. Due to varying weights and distances, we will have to contact you regarding an additional delivery charge. If you have any questions regarding shipping costs before you place an order, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
Are the prices listed on your website your most competitive pricing?
We realize that many customers enjoy the ease of the Internet to do product research and purchase some equipment. With that in mind, we have posted competitive pricing on our online products. However, any customer who is looking for large quantities of the same product(s) should call their local branch. We feel that direct customer contact is still extremely necessary in our industry and want to make sure that our customers know we pride ourselves on long term customer relations. Getting to know you and your operation is our ultimate goal.
There are items for sale on your website, but more available through the Warehouse Equipment Catalog link. What is the difference?
The items that are listed as individual items on this site (Featured Items and online purchasing) are product that NWHS carries in stock. The items in the Warehouse Equipment Catalog are products that we have to order from a manufacturer. As a rule of thumb, if the item you are interested in purchasing from the Warehouse Equipment Catalog is over $1000.00, it is worth calling your local branch to get a custom quote.
