The shipping requirements will be different for each item, but in general most freightliner truck beds are approximately four feet from the ground. Most items weighing under 150 pounds can be picked up off the bed and placed on the ground by one or two able-bodied persons. Attempting this with heavier items can place all individuals and the equipment at risk. Please be aware that it is not the truck driver's responsibility to unload or even assist in unloading your items.
There have been instances of customers not being able to accept delivery because they had no way to unload their heavy or bulky items from the delivery truck.
To counter this, we highly recommend liftgate service if you do not have a forklift or pallet jack and access to a loading dock. A liftgate is a mechanism on the back of the truck that lowers the freight from the truck bed to the ground.
Consider the weight and dimensions of your item to determine if you will need a liftgate for delivery. Liftgate service is an optional delivery add-on that will add an additional fee to your purchase. You may select it during checkout.
