Shipping Methods Available:

* Best Way / Cheapest Way – Pre-Paid Freight: This is the most common method of shipment chosen for industrial customers. With this option, the Buyer allows Beaton Industrial to obtain the best possible freight rate available post checkout, and bill that amount to the credit card used for the materials purchased. This charge will show as a separate charge on the Buyer’s credit card statement, in addition to the cost of materials already purchased. If checking out via a purchase order, this amount will be added to the Buyers invoice.
 
*My Preferred Freight Carrier with Account Number: This is known as a “Collect Bill” shipment. To use this method, the Buyer must have an established account in good credit standing with a preferred freight carrier of their choice. With this option, the Buyer provides the freight carrier name and their account number with that carrier to receive a direct bill post-delivery for the shipping charges accrued. Beaton Industrial will have no knowledge of the amount billed to the Buyer when this option is chosen. Beaton Industrial will have no way of tracking the shipment once your preferred carrier picks up at the FOB point.
 
*Freight Quote: Upon request, Beaton Industrial will provide an estimated shipping cost, and a corresponding reference number to our customers. To utilize the freight quote provided option, enter the dollar amount and the reference number obtained from Beaton Industrial in the form and continue to checkout. When this option is selected, the dollar amount will immediately populate into the total bill at checkout.  Due to the price fluctuation of oil worldwide, freight charges that are quoted by Beaton Industrial Incorporated can be subject to change without notice. The Buyer is responsible for all shipping charges.
