    If the order is shipped by freight carrier, the package is too heavy to be shipped by standard shipping carrier. Which means you will need a mechanical way to move the package. There is a liftgate at the back of the truck that lowers the package to the ground level. Then it has to be moved into your home or office.

        Someone must be present to accept truck deliveries. Please be aware that freight delivery shipments often encounter rough handling resulting in damage or loss. In order to hold the freight companies accountable, the shipment must be thoroughly inspected before signing the delivery document. This includes inspecting for concealed damage.

        Whether the shipment will be received by you, a colleague, or a customer it must be inspected.

        If the receiver of the shipment has a waiver with the LTL carrier for No signature required, this authorization alleviates both the company and the carrier from any responsibility.

        Damaged shipments must be refused or notated on the delivery document.


        The receiver must inspect the shipment prior to releasing the carrier. We are not responsible for damaged or lost product.
