The majority of my parts come from my John Deere dealer, as most of my equipment is John Deere. I pay no freight or handling on stock orders, which arrive within 2-3 days. Now for "machine down" parts shipments, freight is usually around $7 but my local dealer does not always charge me freight. 2 years ago John Deere didn't even charge the dealer extra for next day shipping and thats if I order by 3pm, I have the part the next mornibng before 9am. I do realize that not every compnay can do this but Turfco is unusually high with shipping/handling.
