Love Adam's products.. But...

I LOVE adam's Products, don't get me wrong. i'm placing orders about every 3 months. and i'm excited about the 15%off for father's day sale. the thing i don't like, is how crazy the shipping charges can get sometimes. if only there were local stores we could buy the products at. or maybe a shipping discount if you spend over so much $$$$. i would be buying alot more products, but i usually don't to keep down on the shipping charges

also... i'm about to Clay bar and i'm out of detail spray, would waterless wash be ok to use?

If you need a lube, just use soap and water.

You don't have local dealers close to you? Adams has a dealer page where they list a lot of their dealers. Check it out. You save the shipping costs plus the dealers sometime hook u up or let you try products before you buy them

Having to pay a lot for shipping is nothing new to me, the closest dealer (in US) is 3000 miles from me. What does irritate me is that my order has been sitting for the past week in Kent Washington and I paid over $30.00 to ship it, two weeks ago. It would have been quicker for me to drive down to Washington, pick it up myself, and drive it back to Alaska....

They offer cheaper shipping, not sure how shipping to Alaska is. Adams cheapest shipping for me (FedEx Smart Post or w/e the heck it is) seems to ship around the world before it reaches me.

Is the lube to help with claying or to ease the shipping charges?
