Options to Save on Shipping Costs
The cost of shipping goods has been increasing greatly over the last few months and I’m sure I’ve caused more than one heart attack when I send shipping quotes 😀
However, here are some things we do to help reduce or eliminate shipping costs:
1. Delivering orders.
Trevor’s engineering job literally takes him across Alberta, and sometimes to some areas of BC and SK, on a very regular basis. He is able to deliver orders on his trips to jobsites! He is also in Calgary every day.
So far, these deliveries have been on a case by case basis. However, we are creating a data base of people who would like to be notified when Trevor is headed in some specific directions (granted, the notice is sometimes very short).
This will be by subscription only, so let me know if you want to be added and what area you are in.
Trevor will be headed to Barrhead next week, for example.
2. Grouping orders that need shipping.
We have been able to ship on a single pallet several orders for people living in the same area. The more there is on a pallet, the cheaper the rate per pound becomes as we get into better pricing brackets.
Here are the locations where we have shipped grouped orders:
We will add locations as needed.
If you would like to be notified when shipments are organized to one of those locations, please subscribe, and let me know the area you are in.
We are currently taking orders for a shipment going to Kelowna, to ship in the next 2 weeks.
3. We also head to the Lethbridge area about every 4 weeks. If you live anywhere on the way between Sundre and Lethbridge or in the Lethbridge area, we can deliver on our way. We can go down either via the main highway or through Strathmore and Vulcan too.
Our next planned trip is tentatively set for Sunday July 3rd, 2022.
4. We are also happy to coordinate and meet with any of your friends/family member who might go see you or that you come visit to give them your order.
5. If you know of a feed store near you that you think would be a good fit to carry the Fertrell products and would be interested in doing so, don’t hesitate to give them our info. That will bring our products in your neighborhood.
We can also deliver orders you place with Gascon Custom Milling, as they are just down the road from us. They custom mill feeds using organic, non-GMO ingredients along with the Fertrell products.
Feel free to email us if you have any questions!
