How To Save On Shipping
We've put together this guide to help you understand how our shipping works and how to get the most out your order with the best shipping price possible.
There's no getting away from the fact that fitness equipment is very heavy and sometimes oddly shaped, which means shipping costs can get really expensive. These facts mean that we have to work with a selective number of couriers to ensure that your products arrive safely and on time. The price you see when placing your order online is the same price that we will be charged by these couriers to get your orders delivered, keeping your costs low. We do not always offer 'free shipping' on our products in order to keep our prices competitive, as often when you see 'free shipping' advertised, this means that the shipping cost has been built into the total price of the product. Meaning your order can actually be more expensive than if you had paid the shipping charge in some cases.
Calculating Shipping Charges (UK)
The pricing thresholds for our shipping costs are determined by the order weight. For example, for an order that weighs 201kg, you will be charged the same in shipping as an order that weighs 300kg, because these weights sit within the same courier weight threshold (200-300KG). This is the only truely 'free' shipping that is available. For orders with individual items up to 30kg, we send via a package courier but if your order contains a single item over 30kg, it has to be sent with a more expensive heavy package courier. Heavier packages require more work to be delivered and often require extra assistance.
Our regular package courier can handle a single order of up to 200KG, as long as there are no individual parcels over the 30KG maximum parcel weight cut off. Any parcel over 30KG will go with our heavy package courier and any order over 200KG will be charged on a pallet (freight) rate, as the total order becomes too heavy to be shipped as packages.
However this may be different for EU orders as that is all charged via K&N's (our EU Courier & Freight) rates.
Essentially, we would always recommend playing around with your order in the basket to get the most out of your shipping charges. If you are planning on making a larger purchase later down the line, perhaps consider financing (UK) your order or waiting to make your purchase all together for a better overall rate. Take a look at the below examples.
