Freight Shipping



The majority of our products (because they are heavy) are shipped by commercial common carrier. A forklift (or similar material handling equipment) will be needed to unload the product if the delivery address does not have a loading dock. It is normally cheaper to have a product shipped either to a business address or trucking terminal. (Rather than to a residential address).

THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RESPONSIBLE FOR UNLOADING

THE PRODUCT FROM THE TRUCK



For the majority of states, a lift gate may be provided at no extra charge. Th 1000 lb. capacity lift gate will be able to lower many of the products that weight under 1000 lbs. IE: motorcycle lifts, tire changers, wheel balancers, etc. Above ground lifts (because of their excessive weight) cannot be lowered to the ground with the power tailgate. The customer is always responsible for providing the necessary offloading equipment. If the lift is picked up at a trucking terminal (normally), the terminal staff will be able to load the equipment on your trailer or truck. If you would like to locate a terminal in your area, or if you would like a shipping quote, please contact one of our locations for more information.


Products can also be picked up at one of our nine locations. Call for availability before coming to pick up.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT FREIGHT... GET THEM ASKED AND ANSWERED BEFORE WE SHIP!

Freight Shipping Policy

This item will be shipped by common carrier to a BUSINESS ADDRESS in the USA (lower 48 states). Free Freight Is ONLY to a BUSINESS ADDRESS in the USA (lower 48 states). A BUSINESS ADDRESS is defined as a delivery address on which there is no residential dwelling. Some small businesses are located on the same property as the owner's home. These businesses would be classified as a RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS. A FARM/RANCH would be considered a RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS. Limited access facilities (EG: schools, municipalities, county highway garages, storage facilities, military bases, prisons, etc.) will be subject to a delivery surcharge. Rule of thumb about limited access facilities: If the driver must call ahead or pass through a security checkpoint to access the delivery area, then that delivery point will be classified a limited access facility. A freight surcharge will apply. If you cannot locate a TRUE BUSINESS FACILITY that can receive your product, then please call us BEFORE you place your bid to find out what will be the additional cost of the freight surcharge. Greg Smith Equipment will make every effort to keep the additional RESIDENTIAL (and other non-business delivery addresses) surcharges to a minimum. These freight surcharges are dictated by the LTL shipping carrier and CANNOT "be waived" by Greg Smith Equipment. Please do NOT ASK for (or expect) FREIGHT if you cannot provide a "BONAFIDE" business location for delivery. Your product will arrive in an enclosed truck. It is the customer's responsibility to provide enough space for a 53 foot tractor/trailer to access the business facility AND the customer is responsible for unloading the product. Freight does not apply to an address (whether business or residential) to where a freight truck cannot access. Due to the Weight of Items that are frieght shipped a forklift (or something similar) is required to unload it. The SHIPPING is valid ONLY to a legitimate business address (not a home business address) that maintains normal business hours. There may be a truck freight terminal in your area that can receive the product and help load the product in your truck if you do not have a business address or the ability to offload the product.
