place my 5 clamp order into 5 separate boxes? Wouldn't that cost them
more than putting them together? 4 of the clamps are 80+ inches and are
shipping via UPS Ground. Even the little 24" clamp is shipping by its
They have mine broken up in to three shipments. I ordered, 2 31" and 3 -
24". They have one 31 not yet shipped, 3 - 24" not yet shipped and 1 - 31"
saying it will ship soon. The 3 - 24's have a delivery estimate, one 31 has
a delivery estimate and the other 31 has no date.
Who knows what will really happen. I'll wait till they actually send a
Different warehouses maybe? Also, UPS has certain dimension limits and
five 80" clamps in one box might exceed the limit.
Amazon's contract with UPS probably doesn't make it much more expensive to
ship five packages to one address than one or two. Big shippers get
amazing flexibility with shipping companies when you ship millions of
items a year.
That lets you use the BESSEY24 coupon to get a free 24"
OPTIONAL: Then add approximately $50 more in merchandise (I added two
more 24") so you can use the SAVEON125 coupon. This is where the
savings really kick in, because you're getting $30 off that additional
$50 you spend. The total for your order (including the free 24" bessey)
must be $125 or more.
Yeah, I kind of thought the same thing. I ordered 6 24's and 4 31's and
every one of them is shipping separately.
I know when I bought a set from Lee Valley, they banded the boxes together
and shipped it as one single unit.
Another poster asked whether anyone was able to enter the discount codes
successfully. Yes, and No. I first entered
an order for 3 24's and 2 31's with all the discounts applied. Decided I
just couldn't live without "pairs" so I tried again.
Didn't work....Finally created a new account with a different email address
and was able to avail of the discounts.
Well lets try this. The clamps are already boxed the get "picked" or as we would call it pulled out of stock. Then sent down a set of conveyors to the $7.00 shipping clerks. As the clamps get to one or more clerks in their individual boxes a shipping label is slapped on and placed on a pallet awaiting for the cool guy in the brown get up to come get it.
Just my guess
Guess again. I received 4 clamps yesterday, 2 @ 31", 2@ 24", all in
separate boxes. These shorter clamps don't weigh that much.
My guess is that it would cost Amazon more in time and labor to pack
multiple clamps per box (so they don't damage each other), than it does
to ship the extra boxes.
That kind of thing never makes sense to me, but a lot of places do it.
I even ordered some DVDs from DeepDiscountDVD and they sent them in 5
different shipments, pretty much one per day, rather than just waiting
and sending them all at once.
But if they're paying shipping, it's fine with me.
