I asked a seller why the prices were so high on some items.

It was because they were out of stock and it was apparently easier to change the price than to start a whole new ad???


Another quality post.

We order quite a bit from Rock Auto and there is something I have noticed: you NEVER get a bundled shipping price. I think they have stores in Ohio, Georgia, and Nevada. If you order two items you pay two shipping charges, three you pay for three, one shipped from each location. Surely if you get a distributor cap from Ohio they must also have a rotor.

I've found on the items I buy it's less expensive or about the same to buy locally than Rock Auto when shipping is added. Plus I get the part a lot quicker.

Luckily, I bought the parts that I needed (that Rockauto sold/sells) for my uncompleted 54 3104 restoration back in the days when Rockauto had free shipping.

I am wrong - I found a 2007 order - there was a shipping charge.

Rates have definitely gone wild for us mere mortals.
Within the last few months I got a complete used 216 valvetrain (rockers, shafts, everything) from another stovebolter and shipping cost $25 USPS.
Few weeks later I bought a used leather motorcycle jacket that shipped for $27, also USPS. (both shipped from east of the Mississippi if I recall)
Best shipping these days is definitely finding the right online retailer who can provide better rates than regular people can find.
