Most deliveries that are not considered small parcel (in a box) and need to ship on a pallet arrive via a full size Semi-Truck. Shipping charges are calculated based on the freight class, weight and dimensions of the shipment and receiving location. In addition to your zip code, we will need to know if the delivery address is a residence or business. Most shipments go by common carrier LTL freight lines.

Deliveries to a residence are considered “curb-side”. The freight company is only required to deliver curb-side at the end of your driveway.  It will be your responsibility from there. If you do not have unloading equipment, then the truck can be equipped with a hydraulic lift gate. A lift gate is a hydraulic lift that is attached to the back of a truck that can lower freight to the ground. If you opt out and do not think you need a lift gate, you will be responsible for getting the material off the back of the semi-truck in a timely manner. Sometimes the drivers will help but they are not obligated in any way. The charge for a lift gate varies by the shipping company. We will be able help find the lowest rates in your area.
