In order to give each of our backers the lowest possible rate, shipping for desks and stools will be charged after the campaign is over. Until we know how many desks and stools we are shipping and where they are going, we can’t get an accurate volume-discounted price quote from FedEx or UPS. Rather than charging everyone a “best-guess” flat rate, we’ll instead charge the exact discounted price the carrier charges us. In our backer survey after the campaign, we’ll include a link where we’ll give you the opportunity to choose from a number of shipping options, including local pickup so those who live near Boston can save even more.
Thankfully, the desks pack flat and are very light: the regular sizes are around 30lbs and the large around 40lbs, so shipping rates will be lower than most other furniture!
