Shipping for Heavy Items
Most purchases over 150 lbs. are shipped common carrier (large freight trucks). These items require a pre-scheduled delivery time that is arranged between the carrier and buyer. Customers must be present to sign for the shipment. It is the customer's responsibility to provide a working phone number so that the carrier can schedule a delivery. Non-working phone numbers or no returned calls by the customer to schedule delivery will result in the shipment being returned to the warehouse. Due to the high cost involved with shipping large, heavy items, it will be the customer's responsibility for the shipping charges both ways for a non-delivered order returned to the warehouse. Although there are no shipping fees charged at the time of order, the cost to ship an order out will also be the customer's responsibility. The same charges will accrue if for some reason the customer decides to cancel or refuse.
The delivery truck will stop at the curb. You must unload the equipment from the truck and move it into your home or business. Inside delivery and/or setup can be requested for an additional charge. Extra charges apply for lift gate service, inside delivery and/or set-up.
