We asked the sales department at sawblade.com about the advantages of Next Day Shipment and why it is critical to the Sawblade.com mission.
Why Next Day?
Next Day Shipment can present some logistical hurdles. That is why not all industrial band saw suppliers offer it. As it is, many other suppliers take up to five days deliver their products. One of the Salesmen explained that since many employees at Sawblade.com have experience in machining and production, they understand the impact a five-day delay can have on a shop, especially if margins get very thin. As long as you order before 3 PM, then Sawblade.com will Ship your blades the next day. If you place an order after 3 PM then your order will be processed first thing in the morning and out the next business day.
No Extra Fees
There are no hidden fees for Sawblade.com’s Next Day Shipment, Only their standard shipping fee applies. Other suppliers may charge extra for quicker delivery.
