Truck Shipping: Do You Have What It Takes?
For orders over approximately 200#, delivery by Common Carrier is likely more economical than FedEx shipping. Delivery is by a tractor-trailer with a 53' box. We have flat rates for New England and New York for pallets weighing up to 2000#. If you need a straight truck or lift-gate there is a significant surcharge.
Shipping by common carrier can save you oodles of dough, but it’s not as simple as shipping with FedEx. Before you ask us to ship by truck, please note the following requirements:
- Can your road and driveway accommodate an 18-wheeler and allow it to turn around? Commercial truck drivers are skilled, but they are not superhuman. If you cannot accommodate a semi, we can request a more maneuverable straight truck with some carriers, but it will cost you an additional $75-150 or so.
- Can you mechanically unload a pallet from the back of a truck, or do you have a well-constructed loading dock at the proper height? If not we will need to request a lift gate, for a fee of $90-150 depending on the carrier.
- Can you arrange to be at home on the day when your order is delivered? Freight companies won’t just drop an order on your doorstep. We ask our freight companies to contact our customers before delivery so that you know when to expect your order.
