  • Freight deliveries can be made to a residential address for a fee. However, it is the customer’s responsibility to off-load the product which may require heavy off-loading equipment such as a forklift. The customer is also responsible to verify the freight carrier has sufficient space to maneuver the vehicle when it arrives at the residence.

  • Freight deliveries can be made to a local freight terminal which will have the necessary heavy equipment to load the product onto the customer’s truck or trailer.
