Shipping rates are ridiculous!!
Don't mind waiting for items if on backorder, but when items are in stock I feel ALL items should be shipped together, size permitting, of course. My latest order had 3 small items and naturally ALL were shipped in separate boxes so my shipping charges were out of sight!!
Was recently told by another customer that if you tell them on your original order form that you don't want any items shipped until everything is in stock plus you want it all shipped together, they will sometimes do this, which helps tremendously with shipping charges.
Shouldn't have to ask for this - should be automatic!!
