Glass Boxing Charges

Unlike books, glass requires special packing materials (per UPS) and in some cases double boxing to ensure a safe trip to your shipping location.  Shipping glass must comply with the UPS insurance standards. Nickates charges for glass boxing based on the # of sheets shipped.  The fee's below are not on your purchase order but will be added to your invoice when we process and count the actual sheets shipped with your purchase order.     


Extra charges NOT shown on your purchase order will be applied to your final invoice when we process the order.  Extra charges are as follows:
  • Orders with glass sheets will be charged for glass boxing. 1-13 sheets +$10,  14-26 sheets +$14.50,  over 27 sheets +$20,   plus your UPS shipping charges.
  • Orders with kilns, lead came 6' boxes, or over sized boxing will be charged $14.50 per box for (special boxing, UPS oversize,) plus your UPS shipping charges.


Our shipping success track record is 99.7% but damages will happen. You must call our office within 2 days of delivery and express the damage.  We will handle issues related to damages for you.  NOTE: per UPS terms and conditions.  You must save all boxing and damaged items for UPS to inspect for 5 working days after you contact us.  Also if the condition of the box looks damaged just mark it as damaged when signing for the box.  UPS will arrange a time with you to inspect and pick up the damaged item.  Again please save all boxing.
