Because we sometimes travel throughout Maine and New Hampshire to pick up new inventory, we thought perhaps our customers would like to know if we plan to be near their area at any time, in order to deliver heavier or more fragile items for less than a shipping company might charge.
So here’s a quick overview of some upcoming travel. We’ll try to stay on top of this in case it’s helpful for you! (The above photo is of our constant travel companions.)
Please Note Our Delivery Fees: Generally, our delivery charge is $15.00 around town (Lewiston/Auburn) or anywhere along a route we might be traveling on. (It can take time to package up inventory to be able to deliver it to you safely, and then time to go out of our way and actually do the delivery.) If you’re more than about a mile off the route we’re traveling on, there’s an additional cost of $1.98 per mile that we have to travel off our route.
This week will be fairly limited as far as travel is concerned! (Thank goodness… I need to get caught up on office work!)
On Sunday, January 10, 2021, we’ll be sticking around town but do plan to be out near the Lewiston-Sabattus line in the afternoon, so could deliver out there.
On Monday, January 11, we have to be in Mechanic Falls in the morning, or early afternoon (not yet sure of the time.) We’ll be leaving from Lewiston-Auburn (ME).
On Wednesday, January 13, we have to be in Portland for about 9:00-9:30, leaving from Lewiston-Auburn. We usually take the pike but can instead travel along 202. We’ll be returning from Portland at about 6:00 pm with the same travel itinerary.
On Friday, January 16, we’ll be in Augusta (ME) in the afternoon, leaving Lewiston-Auburn (ME) at about 11:30, and returning around 5:30. It’s quite likely that the Jeepster will be full on the way back, but we can make a stop along either 202, or the Sabattus/Litchfield area on the way up. (Alternatively, we could meet you off the Sabattus or Gardiner exits, as the turnpike is our preferred route.)
On Sunday, January 17, 2021, we will be traveling to Old Town (ME) from Lewiston-Auburn (ME), leaving here at 8:30 am and arriving up there by 10:45 am. As above, we can deliver within a mile along the route for $15.00 that morning, or further off the route for $1.98 per mile. There will not be room in the Jeep to deliver on our return back late that afternoon.
Please Note: If we do have to deviate from our planned route i.e. by driving 10 miles out of our way, it would require adjusting our time schedule somewhat, meaning we’d have to leave earlier in order to still arrive at our destination on time.
Any and all items plus delivery charges must be paid for in advance.
