Once again, the "do you do any free shipping offers" question has reared its head.
The answer is in most cases... nope. Sorry.
We think its worth a post explaining... so we don't have to keep saying it
"So Brickwerks... how come you don't when SuperCamperBrickClassicDubberWerks.com do?"
Well... we sell a lot of parts. Some of it small. Some of it massive.
With very few exceptions, its all in stock here.
You'll usually find that the prices are competitive, and the reason for this is that we don't sneak a few pence on the top to cover any "free" offers or promotions.
Like for like, we do okay on prices. We don't have the advantage of some sellers of dealing with 97 different models... we stick to what we know.
We could do it, and offer "free shipping over £xxx" however, we think its a little unfair because if you're ordering less than the free shipping threshold, you're basically paying more for your shipping... you're paying postage and paying the extra bit we've added to the products. Its simply not how we work.
Sure it might encourage some to spend more to get the "free shipping", but for every one that did there would be another who could see through the flannel...
It's not fair on our customers to do it, and to be honest we credit you lot with more intelligence!
We don't sucker you on prices. Our margins are small, and we're honest about what we sell... it really is as simple as it gets.
If we can sell at a sensible price, stay in business, and keep adding to our ever growing range of quality parts and still be honest and upfront about what we do... we can all sleep at night and everybody is happy.
We think that our system works, and feedback from our customers seems to say the same. No guff. No flannel. No pretence. Just straightforward honesty.
99.99% of orders ship same or next day depending on the time of day you order it. All our shipping options are "Express" in that they're a 24hr service to the UK.
UPS is still around £10 for Next Day delivery to most of the UK up to 32kg, and prices come direct from UPS and the Royal Mail, so you pay exactly what it costs... everything up front and honest. Its how we do business.
We also still give forum discount to over 3000 customers from Club 80-90 and the Brick-yard... which in many cases outweighs any postage costs. So, if you're not already a member, join up get involved in the forums and sign up for discount (details in the respective forums).
