The hauling fee to bring back to Nokomis from Champaign for all small/medium lots/items is $10.00/Per Lot will be added to each Small/Medium lot that is sent to Nokomis for shipping or pick up.
All Large/Oversized Lots will have a $25.00/Per Lot added to each oversized lot that is packed and sent to Nokomis for shipping or pick up.
These charges will be added to your shipping cost to your specific shipping destinations.
Fastenal can be used to crate, strap, and/or shrink wrap anything on to a pallet. As long as the dimensions don’t exceed 72” long and 50” wide with a weight limit of 1500 lbs. This is per pallet including the pallet weight and dims. BUT Fastenal will only ship to the ‘East Zone’ since that is where we are located. We can not ship anything via Fastenal to CA, WA, OR, etc. Also, Fastenal does not offer a tracking number as it is freight. It will be shipped to the Fastenal closest to the zip code on their invoice or what you give if it is different. The store will call you when it arrives to come pick up. So it will not be delivered to your door. Last with Fastenal is, if the item/s are not crated they will not insure them. If Aumann Auctions has to crate them, we will charge for labor and material to do so. Fastenal has been really great it work with and given customers good rates.
We have also spoke to our broker about shipping via hotshot, dedicated van, sprinter van, or box trucks:
Sprinter Vans can house around 3k-4k lbs for a starting rate of $3/loaded mile.
Box Trucks can house around 6k lbs for a starting rate of $3/loaded mile as well
The hauling fee to bring it back to Nokomis from Champaign is not included in that and to do the math for a close quote you will need to use Nokomis as the starting point not Champaign for loaded miles.
All shipments via our broker company ‘Action Transportation’ will be insured and can be delivered directly to a business or home address.
Anything that for some reason going over seas that is not a ’small’ will have to be on a case to case how to handle it.
