Just got an email from Charles regarding a slight increase in the price of his Pre-Color Conditioner. The product works great and I highly recommend it, but I won’t be able to use it anymore. Since I’m low on the quart that I got as a gift, I went to his site to buy some more before the price increase but holy crap! To ship one quart of it to me in Western NY, it’s $15.05!!! That’s almost as much as what the conditioner costs. I love the stuff and will continue to rave about it but I’ll have to go back to the minwax stuff or something else that I can find locally. It’s not Charles’s fault the USPS charges so much but I can’t justify that kind of shipping price.

Charles,
Just make it concentrated and let the customer dilute it. No point in shipping water across the states.

Hi guys, Sherri here. Have to be honest here, I don’t pay a lot of attention to what shipping charges are when an order comes through. The shopping cart calculates them for us and adds them to the order, I process and then ship!

After Charles forwarded this post to me, I went snooping around and seems there might have been a glitch or something, have no idea, but when I put in the Jamestown, NY zip code, the USPS Priority shipping comes up as $10.05 on one quart, so please, if you feel the shipping charges are incorrect, email me at sherri.cnw@msn.com and I will take a look.

1. The “free market” determines success or failure of a business. I say this from experience.
2. Free shipping – there is no such thing
3. If the product is worth having, then you will purchase it….
Just say’in….

Must be some problem with the website in regards to the shipping. One quart of regular Pre-Color Conditioner says $15.05 shipping to me but Two quarts of concentrate is only $12.50 to ship it to me. I sent Sherri an email. I’m sure this will get straightened out.

Sherri again, we have this individual order resolved, not sure why the $15.05 was coming up, came up as $10.05 and 2 quarts at $11.95. I would however like to explain to everyone that it doesn’t matter how you ship, they get you on the first 3 lbs., after that, additional weight increases the shipping charges but not drastically like double the first. I am assuming they get their ‘processing and overhead’ in every shipment based on that 3 lb. mark and then additional weight just adds to what they charge as it doesn’t really change the transportation of it. Just my guess.

Desert_Woodworker, My post has nothing to do with the product. It’s the best stuff I’ve ever used. The product is definitely worth having and I never mentioned wanting free shipping. I expect to pay shipping. It’s about the cost to ship things in today’s world. Don’t turn this into an argument.

Everyone support Charles Neil and buy a quart or more.

Should I need to stain a project again in the near future (and I might), I’ll definitely be going this route. Charles has been generous enough to comment and offer advice on a few of my posts, and I’m more than happy to support such a community-minded man!

Dustin, Charles has done the same for me too. A Class individual for sure!
