The basic answer is: “Don’t do it”. Our flex pipe comes in 100 and 250 foot rolls. The size of the roll can easily be six feet in diameter. That means it cannot ship via UPS or US mail. The only way to ship it is freight, and the cost starts around $100 and goes up from there.
We often get asked to quote shipping of this pipe and it frequently is double or triple the cost of the material. If you think cutting it into 8-foot pieces would save money, it doesn’t. UPS can handle an 8-foot piece of 4″ pipe, but it may also run $80 and up to ship.
The bottom line is, don’t ask for it to be shipped. If you can’t pick it up, look more locally. We do not like to charge our customers outrageous shipping costs.
