Hazmat shipping is a thorn in the wallet of all high-power rocketeers. When you buy from me, I provide free delivery to the launches I attend. By saving the shipping charges, most of my customers wind up paying less even compared to discounted mail order prices.
I attend all Hovar launches and most Battle Park launches, but because of the higher travel costs, I attend Sevra and Nrvr launches less frequently. I would like to serve those clubs to the extent that I can. While I don't have the credentials to ship hazmat orders directly, I can drop ship them from Wildman Rocketry. This might make economic sense for club orders over $500.
Each Club/Special Order needs a "Mother," the person to whom the order will be shipped and who accepts responsibility for delivering items to the order participants. If you want to be "Mother," just use the text box below to tell me the club name and the opening and closing dates for the order. Add this item to your cart and go to checkout (no charge). I will then add your name to the list of delivery options. Your club members can then place orders using the normal shopping cart procedure, choosing your name as the delivery option when they checkout. All participants pay retail price and sales tax, but there is no charge for delivery. Most people will save more on shipping than they will pay in sales tax or lose compared to discounted mail order prices. Just use the shopping carts from the online vendors to compare the bottom-line price (including tax and shipping) to mine. All Club/Special Orders must be paid via PayPal at the time of the order.
"Mother" places her order along with the other participants. When the closing date for the order passes, I will check with "Mother" for a go/no go decision. If she decides to cancel the order, all money will be refunded in full. Otherwise I will place the order. When all participants have confirmed receipt of their items, I will split the profit with "Mother" via a full or partial PayPal refund. For example, from a $588.61 order I would deduct $28.03 in sales tax, $17.65 for PayPal, and $442.41 for the wholesale invoice (including shipping). That would leave $50.26 profit for "Mother" and $50.26 for me. An individual can mother his own order (with no other participants) if he so wishes.
I hope that by this procedure I will be able to serve clubs and individuals who are outside my frequent delivery area.
