WHAT TRUCK FREIGHT ENTAILS:
The best rate for truck freight shipping is to have you pick it up at
the local freight terminal or commercial drop point. A residential
delivery is usually $50 to $60 more than a business delivery, and, a
lift gate (which drops the goods off at ground level), is another $80 to
$100 in additional fees. Inside delivery is an additional cost on
top of that.

If you can mobilize a couple of strong bodies, you might be able to save
$50 to as much as $120 or so on your freight costs.

process to get a new unit or replacement parts if you do so. But

damaged unit. You will still be charged for it, as we will also be
by our suppliers. Freight damage is very rare (FORTUNATELY!), but
proper documentation and reporting of any damage will expedite the
