Maximum Length: 108(9 feet)
Maximum Size: 130. Calculated by adding Length
+Girth (Girth = 2 (height +width))
Example: A package 48long x 8wide x 6 high has a size of 76
Oversize 1 (OS1), Oversize 2 (OS2) &
Oversize 3 (OS3)
OS1 - Package size 85 108 = is charged at a minimum billable weight of 30 pounds
- Package Size 109 130 = is charged at a minimum billable weight 70 pounds
OS3 - Package Size 131" -
is charged at a minimum billable weight 70 pounds plus a $40.00
per package surcharge
The impact on lumber orders of the above limitations
is that we usually must limit board length based on the above.
For OS1 and OS2 the chart above shows board length
limitations. For maximum size limits boards are usually under 8 feet so that length plus girth do not exceed the 130 size limitation.
length allows maximum girth of 34 8wide x 8high
(roughly 7-4/4 boards)
9(108) length allows maximum girth of 22 8wide x 3high
(roughly 2-4/4 boards)
Therefore, we must crosscut boards over 8 feet long.
Said crosscut is usually made on a defect which would maximize board
length. However, sometimes it makes more sense, i.e.. cutting unit yield
or UPS OS1 charges to make the crosscut on a defect near the middle of a board. We reserve
the right to make crosscuts as necessary but will try to comply with
comments/instructions you provide.
Package Weight maximum 150 pounds.
CONSIDER THIS ONE CAREFULLY! Are you physically able to handle a 150 pound package! If not,
determine your own weight limitation and do the following to let us know.
Use the Max Package Weight field in your user
information. And, use either Item or Order Comments to advise us of your package weight limitation.
Package type: Any package type other than a cardboard box incurs a $5.00 handling charge.
Oversize Package (exceeds 60"
incurs a $5.00 handling charge.
We stretch wrap lumber orders. This invokes the handling charge but saves the Oversize
We build a $5.00 Handling Charge in the calculated shipping costs to cover this
charge and to recoup labor and packaging costs.
