Wilton, CT (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Rug Pad Corner, the nation's source for quality rug pads, is pleased to announce that it will offer free shipping on all rug pad orders in the year 2012. The company offered free shipping on all rug pads in the previous year, yet was uncertain of the result of negotiations with its shipping partner. Final negotiations resulted in the decision to continue to offer free shipping this year as well.
"A rug pad can be heavy and bulky and could cost a considerable amount of money to ship for our customers", states Sam of Rug Pad Corner. "For this reason, we are extremely pleased to offer free shipping on all rug pads throughout the end of this year." According to Sam, a room size rug pad such as a 9 foot by 12 foot can weigh thirty pounds and can cost anywhere from $20 to $40 to ship, depending on delivery location. This can be a sizable cost element to a customer, yet with this free shipping policy, it no longer becomes an issue.
Rug Pad Corner has used both UPS and FedEx to ship its rug pad orders, yet recently the company has migrated to UPS alone. The free shipping policy on all rug pads refers to free UPS ground shipping to residential and commercial addresses. Time in transit for deliveries varies from one to five days depending on where a customer lives in relation to the Rug Pad Corner warehouse in CT. "UPS has been very cooperative with our rate plan", states Sam. "Based on our volume and faithfulness to the company, we were able to receive very aggressive rates in order to absorb the shipping fees so that our customers don't have to." Regardless of rug pad order size, shipping is free. It should be noted that expedited shipping is always an option and at a fee.
While customers can enjoy free shipping on all rug pads in the year 2012, the staff at Rug Pad Corner continues to negotiate future contracts with UPS in hopes of offering free shipping in the coming years as well. "I think we will be successful in maintaining our free shipping policy for quite some time", comments Sam. "We will do what is necessary to try to prevent any customer from paying shipping on any rug pad order."
