does HazMat cost so much and how do I minimize my costs?
Please know that Best Glide ASE is NOT responsibile for the unfortunate high costs of HazMat Shipping. These fees, which Best Glide ASE does NOT increase in an effort to make a profit, are imposed by the shipping companies. We do apologize and know that these fees, in many cases, are unreasonable. In an effort to do our part, you will find that the prices on our HazMat items are usually lower than our competitors, to ease the high cost of shipping.
We recommend that you order numerous HazMat items at one time as the fee is based on a per box assessment by the shipping companies. So, it is one fee per box. We currently offer Orion Smoke and several styles of emergency flares that fall into this catagory.
Many of our customers find it worthwhile to combine orders with friends to mitigate these added costs.
