That's kind of where we are at with shipping. I can't haul 12 crane decoys to Texas for $300. When we sell a wedding box for $100, (shipping included) we have about $45 profit, $30 shipping and the cost of materials, packaging, and power eating up the rest. Our shipping bills average about $30,000 a year and are continually getting higher, we have to balance our price with being able to make a profit and being able to continue to sell. Don't be mad at the decoy company, everyone needs to make a little money. I can get Fedex to pick up at the house, otherwise I have a two hour drive, that's fuel and time, it kinds of softens the blow of shipping costs.
