Please note that truck lines add an additional fee to residential areas. If the item is considered to be "free shipping" it will state it in the description.

Q. Why are there extra shipping charges on truck shipments?

A. Commercial truck carriers are set up to make quick deliveries.  There only job is to get the product back to then end of the truck and the customer is required to unload the product.  Most truck lines will provide a liftgate delivery for an extra fee.  This fee is only to lower the product to the ground.  You must move it from there.  Almost all truck lines charge extra fees for residential deliveries and limited access places such as military, schools, etc.  If you have any questions about these extra fees feel free to call us.

A. I most cases you can do this the same way you do the UPS quotes noted above. However, most freight items require you to select whether you need a lift gate at delivery or if it is a limited access address before you can add the item to the cart. You can also call us directly at 800-837-3818 or email us the item you are wanting along with you ship to address and we will be glad to get you a freight quote.
