Pad prices are going up again and we received a note that another supplier will be instituting a surcharge effective 9/1, whether they call them a price increase or surcharges the net effect is the same, they will cost everyone more money. We expect the volatility in raw material and logistical struggles will continue for at least the next six to nine months. If you have price sensitive projects we urge you to order as soon as possible while we still have product at the lower prices. We are doing our best to keep everything in stock but it is difficult to gauge demand. We try to keep our online price book updated weekly, but as always, prices are subject to change anytime.

Price list 2021

 

As a follow up to our previous post regarding raw material shortages and price volatility we have decided that we will NOT be printing a full price list for mailing in 2021. We are sorry for the inconvenience but it seems foolish to spend so much money on a pile of paper that will be out of date before it even gets printed. If you are currently a customer and reading this message the solution is simple, contact us for online access to both the catalog, and price list. We update the price book as often as possible but it seems like prices change every time we receive inventory, so remember – if you are bidding a repair job it is best to get a written price quote that will lock in your prices for 30 days! Phone in price checks do NOT hold your pricing.

Prices subject to change …

 

The market is volatile and it seems we get price increase notices from our suppliers every single day. As advised on every page of our price book OUR PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Please save yourself the headache of being surprised by our invoice and if you are doing a bid repair please call, fax, or email your QUOTE request to us. We will quote the full order and those prices will be held for 30 days, then when you are ready to order we simply convert your quote to an order. Only written quotes are subject to price protections!

Ordering … expedited!

Did you know … the FASTEST way to get your order processed aside from calling is via email? And the best way to send your order is to use: customerorder@alliedsupplycorp.com

That address goes to a shared box within our order team and the first available person will process it. During these challenging times our team members are multi-tasking and filling in all over the building, using this shared box helps get your order processed as quickly as possible! And remember, most orders received without plating before 2pm central time are shipped the same day. (And yes, we are still working on on-line ordering, 13,000+ parts a wee bit of work.)

Security & payment options

 

A friendly but *critical* reminder – we cannot protect your private information more than you can protect yourself! You should never, (and we mean never, ever) send a full credit card number, expiration date or security code via email. The last four digits are fine, but never more than that to anyone – not your most trusted vendors (that’d be us) or even your family. Email is the equivalent of a postcard in the mail – anyone with the technology along the way can look at it. If you have an expired card or wish to add a new card to your account you must call in during regular business hours, if you can’t reach us leave a message. You can also choose to use PayPal, this QR code is included on all of our invoices – or scan here. You must include your account number, invoice or order number on all payments!

Shipping Costs

Some of our customers are seeing large shipping cost increases in the new year. We wanted to let you know, we have noticed and WE FEEL YOUR PAIN! This has nothing to do with Allied Supply procedures and everything to do with the small parcel carriers. UPS and other parcel carriers have instituted several charges that are negatively impacting our customers. In addition to the usual $5 residential and $7 fuel surcharges we are now seeing far more “delivery area surcharges” which usually add another $5 after the fact when we get our bill, add in “surge pricing” and the impact is skyrocketing costs! This combined in many cases with “dimensional weight” can dramatically increase the cost of shipping a very lightweight package – especially for cork boxes. Trust us when we tell you, we are trying but these practices are hurting all of us. Recently a 152 case went out to a tech in a 45″ box, because of the size of the box “dim weight” pushed the billed weight to 146 pounds. In transit, they audited the package and claimed the 45″ box bulged to 47″ (with a rigid case inside). Our integrated UPS programming charged just over $67 on our customer’s invoice, then UPS billed us for an additional $120 large package residential surcharge.

We are working with carriers, and within our own processes every day to try to reduce costs, but when one carrier prices up they all seem to follow. (We’re sure that is just a coincidence. 😉 ) We are exploring every option available including shipping more packages via USPS. As always, unless you indicate a preference we will always use our best judgment for affordable shipping for each of your parcels – that used to be UPS – but now may be any carrier. We all experienced shipping slow downs and delays around the holidays and expect that slow will be another “new normal”. Affordable shipping might add a couple of days to shipping time, please be patient. As always, if time is critical please indicate that at the time of your order.

Please help us keep costs low, if you are a considered a residential delivery we always need to know that, if your zip code or address changes in any way let us know (we will be charged $16 for a change like that after it ships).

2020 was a year of many twists and turns, Covid and other for us here at Allied Supply. We welcomed some new faces, and had to say goodbye to some old ones. Today we say farewell to Craig Anderson after 28 years he will begin enjoying his retirement with his wife Bonnie, his son, and grandkids in the Arizona sunshine.

Thanks for everything, Craig, we will miss your striped shirts, your puns, bagel and pi day, of course your professional expertise, but most of all your friendship. You know where to find us when you get back to the frozen tundra! Godspeed into your new life where every day is a vacation day!
