Most of our manufacturers ship UPS/FedEx to Alaska, which tends to be quite expensive, hence the high shipping costs. A handful of our manufacturers are sometimes willing to ship USPS on a case by case basis, which can save quite a bit of money on shipping. Please note that some brands are not able to accommodate USPS shipping requests during the COVID-19 health crisis. We recommend reaching out to our customer service team prior to placing orders to inquire about specific brands.
Here are the brands that are able to do so:
- Big Agnes
- La Sportiva
- Sterling Rope
If this is something you're interested in, you can place the order anytime, and send the order # to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then reach out to the manufacturer to request they change the shipping method to USPS, and get the actual cost of shipping. If there is a difference, we will be more than happy to refund your card. Please note: it is not guaranteed that our brands can always accommodate every shipping method change request.
