How can I get the best pricing?
How do I get better shipping pricing or free shipping?
As a wholesale electronics distributor, shipping is an important part of our business. Faster transit times from leading shipping and freight providers has enabled DWG to efficiently reach more customer nationwide and globally. There are many business benefits in being able to place orders at convenient times online at dwgdistribution.com to be shipped and received promptly for scheduled projects. Shipping costs generally outweigh the costs (time, gas) in having to drive locally to order and pick up items as needed. Shipping prices are calculated automatically based on the shipping destination, package weight and dimensions. DWG typically insures all parcel shipment packages over $100, so this cost is a factor as well.
When analyzing pricing, it is wise to consider the total delivered costs of items. Many mistakenly focus on lower or free shipping and end up paying more per item (total price of items plus shipping divided by number of items). More savvy customers treat shipping as another item in the transaction. A key way to get shipping pricing low is efficient ordering, in essence more items on the order to offset the price of the shipping across more items. This results in a lower cost per item shipped. A clear way to achieve this is by buying regularly needed items in larger quantity. DWG's goal is to match or beat the landed cost (price of item plus shipping) on any item. We will work with our customers to ensure the most efficient purchasing for their company.
Can I pick up my order?
Yes. You can place orders for pickup from our Westbury, NY warehouse. Select Customer Pickup at checkout.
