Exclamation Free shipping w/ Google

I dont know if most people know this already, but you can use google to get your parts shipped for free.

For example, visit quadratec.com Find an item you want to buy, and copy the "Manufacturer Part No". Then open google, click "shopping" at the top. Paste the number and type "quadratec", then search. Click the link that shows up and wah lah, free shipping on your order.

You only need to do this for the first item, all items added after that will also have free shipping. BUT! this does not cover overweight surcharges.

Hope this saves someone some cash!

I would assume the vendors are aware it can be done, Im just pointing it out to the consumer. Knowledge is free and shipping should be too! lol

I just tried this out, it works. Does the vendor get some sort of deal from Google or what? Not sure how it works.

I think they give free shipping on google in order to be competitive with the other google vendors as nearly all of them offer free shipping on their google listings.

Good to know! I ended up buying my rocker rails somewhere else because they had the same price with free shipping and didn't know I could get free shipping with you guys.

Why not just have free shipping to start with?

Unfortunately, it's just not something our upper management wants to do right now, but we are working on getting it changed so that its always available for anyone.

You could use a coupon box in shopping cart, enter Wrangler Forum or whichever other place you advertise in the box get free shipping. It would be a good way of tracking where your advertising is more affective.

Unfortunately we are not able to use this method currently.

When the link says Free Shipping - it should be free shipping. If there are going to be "overweight surcharges" don't list it is free shipping. I understand some things may be expensive to ship and costs must be recovered. But don't display the product with a link that claims to provide Free Shipping. That's simply bait and switch.

The shipping is free, an overweight surcharge is not part of standard shipping and should be seen as an additional fee for the additional labor / equipment required to ship it vs an item off the same size that weighs less.

Joe,

You should show ur managment these posts. I've ordered several parts from u guys and am happy with u, plus I have a gift cert from the wife for xmas for u guys that I need to use. But when I order parts, mainly expensive parts, I dont want to pay the added shipping and will search out vendors who are offering free shipping. It is a huge bonus and u are probably missing out on some sales because of this. Just my .02, take it as consumer feedback.

upper management rarely knows as much as they think they do.

4WD.com has free shipping over $98 and takes paypal

does your free shipping cover additional charges for larger items like tires?

No, anything over a certain weight has an overweight surcharge. The size doesnt matter. I think for tires the charge is around $15.

Our upper management is involved greatly with the company. They know pretty much everything and more than the next person down the line. It depends on the items, some I am able to waive the surcharges and other I cannot. Truck freight items I can reduce. The offer is mainly for free UPS Ground Shipping.

Tires have 4 tiers of surcharges depending on the overall size of the tire. The surcharges are placed by UPS because they do not like handling tires very much. It does cost a lot of money to ship 4 50lb tires across multiple states.

The management is fully involved in the posts. We have discussed many options and have came up with our current choice of path. Free ground shipping is offered through me, just not the website directly.

Yup,

Joe was quick with a response, saved me some money. Granted my items were small but every bit helps. Small items=small savings on shipping but also= me coming back to quadretic in the future.

With IC Whitney, if you use the free shipping promo code at the top right under the cart, It gives you free ground shipping and eliminates the taxes. So 179.99 for the part, use the promo code, it gets shipped for 179.99.
Sometimes they change the promo but it will still do free shipping and no tax.
