Shipping Information for Charity Rocks Sales
Rocks, quite obviously, are in fact heavy as rocks. Because rocks are heavy, unless otherwise agreed, I ship rocks through flat-rate U.S. Postal Service boxes. These boxes come in a variety of sizes, holding up to seventy (70) pounds. This is a great way to ship rocks rather economically.
The smallest box - into which I can put quite a number of smaller specimens - costs only $4.95. Accordingly, I set up the e-commerce portion of my website to show zero charge for shipping, but a $5 charge for handling - which is to put your order into a small flat rate USPS shipping box. This allows you to buy a number of specimens and ship them for a single charge (assuming they all fit in the small box). If you need a larger box, no problem. We can work that out.
