As of January 2020 UPS and FedEx have both announced shipping rate increases averaging 4.9% to all zones in the USA. Additionally, both carriers have increased overweight fees on all items shipped at 50 lbs. or greater. Unfortunately C&M Topline is not immune to these increases, especially since most of our products are shipped at 50 lbs or greater.
Please know that we have worked hard to negotiate the best possible shipping options with our primary carrier, FedEx, because we know that shipping costs are burdensome for our customers big and small.
If you would like to ship collect on your own account instead of using the quoted FedEx rate we provide at checkout please be sure to include your shipping account number where prompted. Also know that we do not know what rate you will be charged when shipping collect on your own account. Often times, even if our quoted rate seems high, it is still lower than the customers rate because we have negotiated for volume shipping of our products specifically.

Note: A good way to lower your overall shipping burden is to order enough product to qualify for a good LTL freight rate. This is usually at about 300 lbs.
We sincerely thank you for your understanding and continued business.
