Nichols shipping and handling policy. We have a flat $3.95 handling charge on all orders. For seed orders and other lightweight items that is the only charge.
For plant orders and other seasonally back ordered products like garlic and roots and heavy products, we charge shipping based on extra weight. The charge is $2 per pound, based on average estimated shipping costs. We note the shipping weight on those items with shipping charges. After a $100 order we reduce these shipping costs to $1 per pound. On very large shipments like 50 lbs of garlic, we figure and charge actual shipping costs.
For expedited orders we offer express shipping beginning at $19.50 and we charge actual shipping costs in these cases for heavy orders. For express shipping give us a call and we can better calculate the costs.
We cannot ship plants, roots or bulbs to Hawaii and places where transit time is too long for plant survival like APO or foreign addresses. After an order reaches $150, we apply a 5% discount. For Canadian and foreign orders, please contact us for specific details.
