How Freight Works
Some of the products on the store are large and heavy, making them far too big to be shipped by UPS. When a product has to be shipped by freight the first line of the product description will indicate that the product is a freight only item. Unlike UPS eligible products, it is not possible for the stores shipping calculator to be able to produce an accurate shipping cost.
To make sure that you get the best price and service we need to calculate the freight cost manually, here is how the process works:
- Choose the product you require, making sure that you choose your delivery type (residential or commercial) and whether you will require a truck with a liftgate.
- Once you have made your destination choice, place your product(s) in the shopping cart and pay for them with the payment method of your choosing. If you have any further delivery instructions please note them in the “Customer Notes” field in the cart, if you want us to contact you via phone please make sure that you include your number on the payment page.
- As soon as receive your order we will obtain the best freight quote for you. Once we have the quote we will contact you via phone or email.
- The product will be shipped when the freight charges have been paid for.
Note: When freight charges have been received we will engage the freight company and arrange the shipment, depending on the time of day and other circumstances the freight company may not be able to pick up the consignment for 24 to 48 hours. We will always endeavor to ship your order as soon as practicably possible.
What is the Freight Company Responsible For?
With all freight deliveries the freight company is only responsible to perform a "curbside" delivery. If you have a need to have the product taken into a structure please mention this at the time of the order, then we will be able to quote the correct price for your delivery.
Residential vs. Commercial
A freight delivery to a residential address is more expensive than to a commercial property, this can be by as much as $100 or more! If you can have the products delivered to a commercial address, please do so, it will be much cheaper.
If you have indicated that your address is commercial, but turns out to be residential, we will invoice you separately for the difference.
