We do not publish the rates for the above charges because carriers frequently change their rates. If your order incurs any of the above fees, you will be charged the going rate at the time it ships from our facility.

We have attempted to indicate which items qualify for special shipping or handling fees in the product descriptions, and our website has been programmed to add fixed costs such as Oversize, Crating, and Hazmat Fees to the shipping quote you see during checkout. However, in the event that we have overlooked an item we reserve the right to make changes to your final shipping costs. Variable costs such as export documentation fees and multiple package costs cannot be determined until the order is packed and ready to ship, therefore these costs are NOT shown in your shipping quote during checkout.

For more detailed information regarding special shipping, crating and handling fees, please refer to the Shipping Help articles in our Knowledge Base.

Univair reserves the right to adjust your final shipping charges on your credit card/PayPal account at the time your order is shipped.
