Because of our high volume shipping, we are given significant discounts which we are able to pass on to our customers to provide the lowest rate possible for your shipment. Shipping costs are generally based on weight.

  • How can I import containers loads of fireworks through Spirit of ’76?

    For large orders (1,000 cases or more) we are able to make drop-ship arrangements where the merchandise is delivered direct to your location from the factory. Since the drop-ship orders require a 40-foot cargo container to be completely full, the investment is usually $40,000.00-$55,000.00 per container. However, drop-ship orders receive the lowest prices because some warehousing and shipping expenses are avoided. Please click here to learn more about importing fireworks.
