Liftgate/Back of Truck
In certain cases, you will be responsible for removing the product from the back of the truck. In other cases there may be additional fees to send a truck that has a lift gate to lower your items to the ground. See our Special Attention Products section on this page for more information.
Special Attention Products
Some products on this web site may incur additional fees by the shipping company in addition to the amount that is displayed during checkout. These fees are incurred for a variety of reasons such as residential delivery, lift gate charges, or simply being oversized or overweight. Due to the wide variety of circumstances that these fees are charged and the continual changes in fee amounts by our shipping providers, these fees cannot be displayed in real-time during the checkout process.
These special attention charges generally occur in very rare circumstances. If your order requires special attention, you will be contacted via phone or email. Your order will not be processed until we receive your approval for the additional charges.
