Default Shipping cost!!!

Where do you all get your supplies from? I have been doing some online shopping and I have seen about every site and I'm outraged by the shipping. I don't have a brew shop near me so that's not happening. Just want some feed back on the best place to go.

morebeer.com. Purchased my setup from there. Buy $59 and shipping is FREE! Prices are competitive. Shipping does take 1.5 weeks or so if you live on the east coast.

Good luck!

my experience with more beer is they have poor handling of the product with shipped items. Ordered some lme, equipment, and star san and the way they had packaged it I had star san all over everything and the bottle was about 1/5 empty.

I've had good experiences with love2brew.com. They offer free shipping over $75.

I placed a few orders, one with starsan. They placed the starsan in a separate bag and it did leak just a little. However, everything else stayed dry. From CA to NC, not too bad.

luckily nothing was ruined as everything was in it's own plastic bags as well but all of those bags were soaked in star san as the sanitizer did leak out of the bag that the star san container was in. I saw the problem as soon as the box was delivered as the bottom was soaked and almost falling apart. Left the company a bad survey and everything and they didn't even bother to contact me with and apology or any concern about the rest of the product... Very poor customer service as far as I'm concered when you place a $100+ order.

to get back on topic, northern brewer has been a good "go to" shop for me when ordering online but their new shipping policy kinda hurts them a little, you just have to make sure you order enough to make the shipping costs worth it and watch if you order heavier items as that can kill you.

Yeah, that sucks. I would have expected more. Even a phone call and 10% discount on next order would have been nice.

BTW, Pittsburgh. You live in the city or a suburb nearby? My wife is from up that way (wexford).
