    I purchased a mount the other day and was charged for shipping to the US yet the website says shipping is free. I also sent an email and they responded it was free. I have sent two emails to Snowbear asking for clarification and a refund of the shipping charges and they have yet to respond. Do they always do this?

    I sent this email

    To: sales
    Subject: Shipping Question

    I see the price for a new mount on the website, does that include shipping to the USA. My zip is Cumberland, RI 02864


    I got this response

    All mounting brackets are $269.99 which includes the shipping charges. Thank you,

    That's kinda how I feel everytime I order from the States, except there's usually another $40 brokerage fee. Free trade:rolleyes: Sorry about your luck...they are a site sponsor though so your in the right spot to effectively publicly complain.

    Shipping free, handling charge not so much?

    Since other parts we're added along with the plow mounts the shipping charge was applied in error, we have credited the shipping cost back.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
