So I sent NCM the quote Friday around lunchtime and still haven't heard anything from them. I just sent them an e-mail for an update so we'll see what happens. really getting fed up with this company..

I can imagine. Are they the only game in town, so to speak?

Just got a reply from NCM. They processed the quote but apparently have new software and can't get it to send to me. They are reworking the quote (I guess in the old software) to get it out to me asap. Hopefully will be able to start getting some totals out soon.

Finally got the quote yesterday late in the day. Had some questions for them so had to e-mail them and amazingly enough they got back to me today. Seems like they now added a charge of $100 for residential deliveries, even though it's not listed in the catalog anywhere that I can see. So, due to all the fees they keep tacking on, our shipping alone is this: $330 for freight on 3 pallets, $100 residential shipping fee, $15 call ahead fee, $66 fuel surcharge, $75 liftgate charge= $586/126 sacks= $4.65/sack shipping. I think I might build a loading dock in the back yard and officially name the brewery, that would eliminate $175 in shipping fees alone! If everyone is cool with the shipping price, I will start to get totals out tomorrow. To me it is getting rediculous with the fees, but I'm only 3 sacks out of 126 and there isn't much to do about it anyway. Seems like they might be finding a way to eliminate homebrew orders one way or another..

I got a ton of spare lumber and nails. I could have that loading dock set up in a few hours we do have a loading dock at work and I can get in on the weekend, but I work in chesterbrook.

I am fine with the cost, sucks, but it is what it is.

Still cheaper despite the fees. Pull the trigger.

Spanish beers?? Never had one that I know of. They have anything that stands out? I agree, it is still inexpensive and a good deal and all that. I'm just used to the past buys paying $3.40ish for shipping. I think NCM just really got under my skin this time around. Was hoping to have totals out and payments to me with plenty of time to place the order. Looks like I'll be rushing around like an idiot again this time.
