They're sold as a pair on the site.
One pair weighs 110 pounds.
Our software sees the item as 1 box, weighing 110 pounds.
The shipping charged on a single 110 pound box is far greater than that charged on a pair of 55 pound boxes.
Past 70 pounds in one box, shipping companies start charging insane per pound rates.
As an example, 50208 to 10108(For some reason the Stick Stickley song from Nickelodeon is stuck in my head...write to me, Stick Stickley, PO Box 963, New York City, New York State, 10108...that's probably 14~18 years old) shipping on 2 55 pound boxes is $40.80 + applicable fuel surcharges etc.
Change that to the single 110 pound box our software would see at checkout and somehow FedEx's web site is coming out at $41.83 + surcharges....This is new. Maybe our rates on oversized are more competitive now due to the # of subs we're shipping because that is definitely not the same as our old massive package rate. Time to call our rep.
