Military shipping

It's my understanding that you ship UPS in conus and that is why you can offer free shipping. As UPS does ship to the military sorting facility in Richmond California (where mail changes to Military postage) why is it that the free shipping can't be offered to military? I also realize that mail going through Richmond California will ship via surface mail and take an additional month to receive but the savings is a good trade off for the time. The 6% I save from being a member if this site or my military affiliation don't even cover the shipping costs that I pay.

Polar_Bear,

I'm sorry for the inconvenience of our shipping policy! I honestly can't say I know the exact reasoning for the costs to ship to APO. However, I can certainly send your feedback to the right people. We're always looking to make improvements within the company. This is a great point to bring to the table!

Thanks again for your feedback!

Shane

As I mentioned I realize all products sent UPS to the military sorting facility in Richmond ultimately go surface (literally snail) mail. Sometimes the cos of shipping being deferred for the wit is meaningful. When I ordered the power stop brake set shipping was nearly $150.

Companies like Walmart ship this way and it's free of charge. There is an obvious wait to receive items too. Sometimes up to 45 days.

When you ship priority mail I am receiving the orders in 7-10 days so that is nice for lighter weight small products.

I order I placed yesterday cost $5 over the subtotal after the Mustang Evolution discount due to shipping. i.e. discount was $40 and shipping was $45. Just an example. It doesn't always work out that close.

Thanks again for any help you can provide.

No, thank you for the feedback! I truly do appreciate it, I just wish I had a better answer for this situation. It's definitely something that needs to be reviewed. The information you've provided will help assist me while presenting the concern to the right people.

I'll see what I can do in the future! The best part about working at AM is we're always trying to change for the better. I know this situation will be thoroughly reviewed and dealt with!
