MANSFIELD, Ohio, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Eagle Mark 4 Equipment Inc., a terminal tractor dealership headquartered in North Central Ohio, announced today that it will begin offering free ground shipments on January 1, 2014, for the majority of their parts. Due to price increases of service parts, Eagle Mark 4 has decided to offer free shipping on over 1,000 items. All orders over $500 placed after January 1, 2014, will qualify, with the exception of large handling items.
"This will help customers save on shipping costs and offset some of the recent price increases," says Chris Coffman, Parts Specialist. "Our current plan is to run this for the first half of the 2014 year and see how it works. If it proves successful we may offer it for the remainder of the year. We are always trying to meet our customers' requirements," Coffman also stated. Earlier this year Eagle Mark opened a central distribution warehouse in Leland, North Carolina to help minimize unit down time for customers in the southeastern United States.
"This is something we have been putting together for a while now," said Charles Smith, Technology Director with Eagle Mark 4. "We now have two distribution warehouses to service our customer base but we still need a way to help control price increases from the OEM's," Smith added.
