Increased Shipping Costs due to UPS Rate Increase

Effective January 3rd, 2011 UPS has increased their shipping rates by about 5%. More importantly (especially in the acoustics business) they have increased rates on large, light boxes by an additional 17%! This means UPS is now charging significantly more to ship boxes of DIY acoustic materials which are large, and not very heavy. We started ATS Acoustics to make acoustics affordable to people like ourselves. These new UPS rates make it harder to do that, and we hate that. For now, we have no choice but to pass the extra shipping costs on to you, our customers.

We will be negotiating with a number of shipping suppliers, looking for the best options we can find to get your cost back down to something we can feel good about. We’ll keep you posted.
