Anyone with experience having parts shipped with FASTENAL? They can't seem to find Kansas City, Mo Metro area to give a quote. St. Louis area (225 miles away) seems to be as close as they can quote even though they have 5 o 6 locations plus a terminal in this area. Don't want them to lose the parts.
I've never had a problem, I usually look up the address of the store to ship it to and have never had a problem
Right. Find the store you are shipping from. Call them or go there for a quote.
I used Fastenal to ship a TT rear axle once.
I thought their price was reasonable and the process went very smoothly. I just had to strap it to a pallet and drop it off at the local Fastenal store with the shipping paperwork.
I would definitely use them again for shipping large items.
I've had two items shipped to me via Fastenal freight. They were a complete Model T engine/transmission assembly and a Weaver twin auto jack. Both shipments made it just fine and were low in cost. I'll use them again.
I just tried to use them to ship from near Cleveland, Oh to Montana. They said they do not have capacity to accept shipments from east to west at this time. YRMV
Used them twice, worked great both times. One was west coast to east coast.
Thanks everyone for the info. This really if a great forum!!!
Fastenal can be the most economical way to transport parts.
Make sure the Seller is willing to package parts in accordance with Fatenal's requirements - insure the shipment for 200% of actual replacement cost in the event of damage or loss.
