Shipping costs have risen considerably due to the cost of fuel. UPS now has not only a fuel surcharge, but delivery area surcharge, and they charge more for residential delivery than commercial. The delivery area surcharge does not apply to all locations, the fuel surcharge does. We do not make money on shipping fees.
We hope this explains a little about your shipping fees and why they might vary, or seem higher than you expected.
If you are shipping online, then your shipping will be calculated via a live connection to the UPS web server, or by the United States Postal Service web server if you are shipping outside the continental United States. All rates are based on the zip code you enter as the shipment destination.
