Aluminum Price Index chart

I expect aluminum prices to come down slowly.  When they are similar to those of August 2021, I will post a new price list and accept new orders.


ESTIMATE SHIPPING:

I can ship either UPS or FedEx - your choice, however FedEx is slightly cheaper.  You can also save a few dollars more by having your tower shipped to a business address rather than a residential address. You can also arrange to pick up the tower here in Spring Lake, MI. Please call or email before arriving.

* 8 foot towers have become very expensive to ship.  FedEx Ground, UPS Ground are about the same.  FedEx Freight (LTL, Class 85) is about double these. If someone has another alternative, please let me know.

To estimate your shipping cost, use the FedEx online Calculator. Use 49456 as the "From" ZIP code, and your ZIP code as the "To". Use the weight from the pricing table. Select - "Use own packaging". Package size is typically 100" x 6" x 6" for 8 foot towers, 78" x 6" x 6" for 6 foot towers and 58" x 6" x 6" for 4.5 foot towers. Thrust bearing is shipped in a separate 7" x 7" x 7" package.


How to Order:

Send an email to rgcox2 (at) gmail.com to confirm current lead time and to check stock. Please include all part numbers with quantities. Please specify either Hy-Gain/CDE or Yaesu/Kenpro mounting hole pattern. Include the ship-to address with zip code and your phone number. Please let me know if you wish to sign for delivery.

I will send you the lead time estimate along with the total price, including shipping and Michigan tax (if applicable). After receipt of payment, I will begin construction, or if parts are in stock, I will ship. I will confirm the shipping details again about 2 days before shipping. I accept either check or PayPal at this time.
