"Shipping Rates"

How shipping cost is determined:

We currently offer the follow shipping methods on our website for both domestic and international customers.

Priority Mail (US Postal service)
UPS Ground

The examples below are meant to be a guide in how shipping costs are determined. All shipping methods/carriers including the US postal service determine weights using this type of information when shipping anything.

Aves® Example:  ¼ pound  = .25 pounds of strictly Aves® product. This ¼ pound does not include any of the product containers, outer wrapping/packaging or the weight of the shipping box/packing materials. A ¼ pound of straight product easily doubles in weight to ship. Regardless of the product weight all shipping companies will see this item as 1 pound and charge you accordingly. We do offer the US Priority flat rate envelopes and boxes which are based on a total weight AND that the items fit in the package to help reduce your costs..  

  • ¼ pound kits ship at 1 lb.
  • 1 pound kits ship at 2 pounds
  • 4 pound kits ship at 5 pounds
  • 5 pounds ships at 6 pounds
  • Two  - 4 pound kits ship at 9 pounds
  • 20 pound kits ship at 23 pounds
  • 25 pounds ships at 27 pounds
  • 50 pounds ships at 52 pounds
