We have used numerous shippers in the past and as a result we have some that we really like to use as we know that they will pick up when they say they will and that we can depend on them to pick up the same day we call. If you specify someone out of the ordinary or someone who does not make daily pick ups or someone we are not familiar with please be aware that your parts may take a extra day or so to ship as we await pick up.
That being said, we have used a variety of companies such as UPS, FedEX, DHL, Pilot, BAX-aka Schenker, Kamino, Stevens, Quick, Emery/Menlo, US Mail, Saia, AAA Cooper, American/Fed Ex Freight, Estes, Central Freight, Central Transportation, Unishippers, Acme, Watkins, Gator (sorry but we do not and will not use R&L), ABF, Con-Way, Overnite, Old Dominion, Averitt, Panalpina, Dockside Services, USF Holland, USF Dugan, Southeastern Freight, Service Transport, Wilson, Viking, JAS, Roadway, Reddaway (interlined) and Yellow that I can think of off hand. If you have an account with someone please let us know. If you would like to ship via some other company, let us know and we will see what we can do. We are diligent in our efforts to receive the best discounts and service possible. When you specify Bestway, be assured your parts will be shipped the very best way possible.
If you need your part hot shotted we have a couple companies we can use for that also.
If your part is approx. 70# or less and not too awkward it can be shipped via UPS. UPS picks up every day at 3:30 PM central standard. If we have your part in stock, the order would need to be placed before 1:30 PM central standard to ship it the day the order is placed. Below is a standard UPS ground transit time map from our location. The shipping department did not want me to put this map online, as it may not always be accurate. Please keep this in mind and refer to this only as a reference of the usual/best guess transit times for UPS regular ground.
If you would like to use FedEx, we do not have a daily pick up so allow for an extra day just to get them over here to pick up plus it’ll probabaly cost a little more. Here are their regular-best guess-transit times
If your part requires motor freight, it is more convenient for us to pick the trucking company. If you must use a specific truckline please be aware it may delay your shipment by one to two days as we schedule a pick up.
All shipping freight collect FOB Fairhope, AL 36532. If you would like shipping billed to a shipping company with whom you have terms, please supply your account number and we will do our part to arrange third party billing.
