Why Are Shipping Fees So High Lately?
About current shipping fees
I know, I hear you. For those of us who remember when a postage stamp was 5 cents (myself included), the shipping fees at HouseAndGardenFlags.com may not be what you expected, and I understand your concerns. These are not my fees, but come directly from the shipping vendors themselves.
Unfortunately, the cost of shipping overall has increased enormously over the years and continues to increase every year. But the choice and quality of services, as well as the speed of delivery, have increased as well. USPS Priority Mail now includes up to $50 insurance for no additional charge as well as faster service. I recently shipped a package from here in New Jersey to California and it was delivered in 2 days!
However, for those of you on a budget (myself included), at HouseAndGardenFlags.com you now have a choice between economical USPS First Class Mail, Priority Mail, Standard Post and UPS Ground. I hope this is helpful to all of my customers.
