Ipe Woods USA strives to offer the highest quality and lowest prices possible. We are only able to achieve this with bulk orders.
At the warehouses, the boards you are requesting might require us to move many other containers or pallets to get to the right ones. On top of this milling of boards sometimes requires we bring machines down from other operations and put the proper blades on, this takes a lot of time to do and makes the machine go down from operation while it is done.
We also need to ensure we try and protect each load, and in order to be able and properly package (build pallets, wrap the wood, strap it to the pallets) this takes material, money, and labor.
In order to maintain our quality commitment, we require a minimum order of $2000. Any lumber order under this is subject to a $300 fee.
