Orders of more than 4 large bags
Because the larger bags are so bulky and heavy, they can be expensive to ship. That is the bad news. The good news is that we work with four freight forwarding companies who work with a wide variety of freight companies around the U.S. to find you the lowest ship cost possible. If you order 1 – 4 fifty liter bags of Hydroton, we’ve found that it is cost effective to ship via our normal parcel carriers (US Postal Service and FedEx ground). If you order more than that it is generally less expensive to ship via freight. Our ecommerce system can’t do this automatically, so it will look like you received free shipping when you check out. We will get back to you with a freight quote after your order has been placed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Unlike other companies, we make absolutely nothing of shipping and will only pass along the rates we are quoted.
