Shipping to Alaska/Hawaii
Due to the high cost of freight with UPS/FEDEX we cannot offer free shipping to our customers in Alaska/Hawaii. However, there is a much better option for our customers other than UPS/FEDEX.
With UPS/FEDEX the shipping charges can be in the hundreds/thousand dollar range. Due to our location in Kent Washington, we are very close to the Tacoma/Fife freight docks.
This allows us to ship using a third party, Carlile (a local freight company). They ship directly to your barge/shipping dock in Alaska. We do provide a free service of dropping off the product to the dock/barge, the consumer is responsible for the freight charges.
To ship to Alaska you must first get a Quote Number from Carlile here. We are happy to provide shipping weight and packaging dimensions for your specific EcoHitch. Please provide the Washington State terminal address and Carlile Quote Number at the time of your EcoHitch purchase in the Shipping Information form.
For example: A 450 lb product shipped to Alaska through the freight company was $90. Through UPS was well over $800 UPS Ground. The customer chose the freight company hands down. All shipments using the freight companies requires either COD or prepayment via a Quote # through Carlile before we will deliver the parts to the docks. You can download the Quote Request form for Carlile by clicking on the link below.
