Freight charges are extremely complicated, as freight rates are based upon the weight of the shipment, density of the goods, ease of handling, damage rate vs. cost of the goods, distance travelled and the volume of freight handled between origin and destination for the Freight Company, as well as the services required at the origin destination. In other words, there is no “one size fits all” for freight pricing. Bulk Bins Canada can provide a freight and shipping estimate as a courtesy to our customers. These estimates are based on information given to us at the time of inquiry, and are subject to change due to fuel surcharge, accessory charge, address change, redirected shipments, residential or commercial delivery address, or refused shipments. Bulk Bins Canada does not assume liability for any difference in freight estimate versus actual billed freight charges.
