WHAT TRUCK FREIGHT ENTAILS:
The best rate for truck freight shipping is to have you pick it up at
the local freight terminal or commercial drop point. A residential
delivery is usually $40 to $45 more than a business delivery, and, a
lift gate (which drops the goods off at ground level), is another $80 to
$100 in additional fees. Inside delivery is an additional cost on
top of that.
Know someone with a truck? Can you have a dolly or hand cart on
hand? If you can mobilize a couple of strong bodies, you might be
able to save $40 to as much as $120 or so on your freight costs.
Call for your freight on any of our truck freight items.
Note: the above refrigerators and freezers are shipped on a pallet
surrounded by heavy, double-corrugated cardboard. For export
shipments, add $50 for additional export crating.
NOTE ABOUT RECEIVING TRUCK FREIGHT
ITEMS: Do not sign for anything until you have
inspected your unit. You have spent good money on this, and it was
shipped in good condition. If you don't inspect it, and open the
unit at home and find 'hidden damage', there is no recourse for a truck
freight claim. All claims for damage MUST be made at the time of receipt
of the unit! Note any damage on the bill of lading before signing
off--it's a relatively easy process to get a new unit or replacement
parts if you do so. But not if you don't inspect it! Also,
don't refuse an obviously damaged unit. You will still be charged
for it, as we will also be by our suppliers. Freight damage is
very rare (FORTUNATELY!), but proper documentation and reporting of any
damage will expedite the claims process.
