Most of our orders are shipped by FedEx Ground. However, we do provide shipment by FedEx Express and commercial truck. We assume shipment by FedEx Ground in our estimated freight cost example. Please call or email us for freight estimates for orders to be shipped by carriers other than FedEx. Freight will be charged to your account when the books are actually shipped.
At InstantPublisher (a book printing service company), we do not add any additional handling charges to the freight charges on your order and, in fact, pass along to you any discounts our freight carriers give us. At the time the books are shipped, you will receive an e-mail with the shipping information.
