Lift Gate Service

Ensure Your Product is Delivered and Unloaded Safely 

*As of 01-01-2014, all orders over 150 lbs. delivering to a residential address include complimentary lift gate service.

We provide the option to add "Lift Gate Service" to your order on all equipment that weighs over 149 lbs. 

  • 150 – 224 lbs.                           $75 (As A Courtesy To Our Customers, This Service Is Presently Free)
  • 225 lbs.                                     $100 (As A Courtesy To Our Customers, This Service Is Presently Free)

Equipment weighing more than 149 lbs are delivered by a semi-truck. Semi-trucks are designed to unload at loading docks and freight terminals and are not equipped to deliver products at ground level. You will not need lift-gate service if you have a forklift, freight terminal, or loading dock.

However, if you are a residential customer you will likely need lift gate service in the event you are without assistance from 2-4 strong, willing, and able-bodied people at the time of delivery to help unload the equipment.  (Truck drivers are not required to help lift products from their trailer/truck).

Lift gates come on specific trucks equipped with a hydraulic lift to safely lower your equipment from the truck deck approximately four (4) feet in the air to the ground (curbside).  The fee is assessed to our company by the carriers that is then passed onto you is due in large part to the coordination required to make sure your delivery truck is equipped with the lift gate equipment as much as it is the simple act of lowering the piece of equipment down from the deck using the lift gate mechanism. 

Lift gate service is a great choice if you do not have the equipment or manpower to unload your equipment.
