Master Lock/Sentry Safe has eliminated freight costs that were built into their regular dealer pricing, and moved to a $1,000 prepaid freight minimum. For orders less than $1000, Freight costs are now listed in the end column for each of the Sentry Safe skus. The List Price Discount for Safes shipping to the dealer warehouse is now 50/10%, and for Drop Ship orders, the List Price Discount for Safes is 50/0%. In most all cases, this has presented a more favorable change in overall order costs.
Master Lock has also rolled out their security Lock products to TriMega, with the same program benefits as their Sentry Safe line. However, all Master Lock Locking skus, found in the Locks price list, must be ordered on a separate Purchase Order and abide by a separate $1000 prepaid freight minimum. Here again, there is a separate price for all orders that are drop shipped. A product catalog for Master Lock’s Locking skus is also listed in the pricing section.
