Paul Brayton Design - Freight Estimator

This estimator is to be used as a guideline in providing an estimate for furniture shipping.

  • Determine the zone to which PDB products are to be shipped.
  • Using the map and zone percentages, calculate your fixed freight cost as a net percentage of the total COM LIST. Note that there is a minimum charge for each zone.
  • Place your order and note the PBD Freight Estimate.
