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.
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 without a liftgate.
For items weighing over 150 pounds, we highly recommend liftgate service if you do not have a forklift or pallet jack and access to a loading dock. Please note: The truck driver does not assist in unloading items and any liability would be assumed by the person taking the item off of the truck. If necessary, you may select a liftgate at checkout.
