Because of the way the shopping cart shipping charges have to be structured, there is sometimes what seems like and is too much charged for shipping.  CDE is not trying to make a profit on shipping your order.  If the shopping cart shipping charges exceed actual cost of shipping the difference will be refunded to you.  The exception to this are items that require the use of special shipping containers (SOP and CrateMate Jr.).  Then the cost of the special container is added to the actual shipping charges and any excess refunded.  If you have any questions about this policy, please contact CDE by phone or email.  The shopping cart is set up for shipping to the Continental US only.  Please contact CDE for shipping costs to other locations.
