SHIPPING

Once we know what wood you want to order and have a zip code, we can quickly get you an accurate shipping price.  We get the best pricing for Small & Medium pieces with U.P.S. Ground & U.S. Postal Priority.  For Large pieces, we get the best pricing with U.P.S. Ground.  There is a point due to dimensions where a piece of driftwood becomes too large to ship U.S. Postal.  Then you hit a point where the driftwood is too large to go with UPS.  The top end threshold with U.P.S is a little larger.  This is when a piece of driftwood becomes an Extra-Large piece.  If a piece is listed under the Extra-Large section of the web site, the only way to ship it is on a tractor trailer.  At that point we get on the phone with the trucking companies and find the best price to ship the driftwood to your neck of the woods.  We use Southeastern Freight, Wilson Trucking, Clear Lane Freight, & Daylight Transport for shipping the big-dogs.  We can, have, and will ship to any state in the U.S.A.  Canada and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico can be shipped to as well.  Things get really complicated with customs when shipping overseas.  We have found shipping driftwood overseas to be a nightmare.  Nothing is impossible, but when you have to spend a month on phone calls, paperwork, certifications, and inspections to ship one piece of driftwood, you have to draw the line.  We are not in the shipping business and are not looking to make money on shipping.  We make our money selling driftwood.  Our cost is your cost on shipping.  Remember, there is no such thing as "Free Shipping."  Our competitors that offer free shipping jack the price of the driftwood up to cover their shipping costs.  For those of you that are in a hurry we can always get you Overnight/Priority/2nd day pricing if necessary. 

Shipping is the toughest part of this business.  For the larger pieces of wood, there is no easy way to do it.  It is impossible to turn a profit in this business if we pay shipping.  We could double the price of the piece of wood to cover shipment like some of our competitors, or we can pass onto you our shipping costs.  Charging separate for each gives you the option of the much lower price for pick-up orders. 
So, with that being taken into consideration, we pass our shipping costs onto the buyer.  Shipping for bulky heavy pieces can almost double the price you pay.  It is what it is...  We are always on the lookout for less expensive ways to ship and we are always open to suggestions.  We are located in Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina.  For those of you that vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we can hold purchased pieces of wood for pick-ups.  We do offer delivery service(by the truck & trailer load) for bulk purchases.  Shipping prices on web site are based on East Coast Shipping.  For those of you not located on the east coast, we can get your shipping cost a.s.a.p.
