Why have you done away with the flat rate shipping? I am now having to pay a 100% increase in the price of shipping to go with your FedEx ground and I get my order twice the time it used to take.
This makes me want to just do business elsewhere.
Making money off the freight is one thing but gigging me to the tune of a 100% increase is another.
Reloading is heavy business between lead shot and steel shot and those flat rate shipping boxes were a boon to us as consumers.
Since your business is reloading it seems as though you are sending a message that you don't mind sticking it to us as consumers.
Please help me to understand why this is happening. I talked to my local Post master and he says that while the Post office does not like the program ( heavy on the carriers) they have not done away with it nor are they telling commercial shippers not to use it.
From where I am standing it looks like you just want to make money by charging me full FedEx ground rates while you profit from the discount deal they give you.
A 100% increase in freight cost to feather your own bed isn't good business.
Cost 40.00 now to ship 5 bags of steel shot VS 20.00 a few months ago with the flat rate program.
This is horse crap. If you agree with me that it is horse crap then contact them as I have. The e-mail address is as firstname.lastname@example.org
