Freight Delivery Locations
All freight deliveries are shipped with various shippers and are subject to that freight carriers polices.

Locations that are considered remote may incur an additional delivery charge for delivery, for which the buyer is responsible to pay. The freight driver is only responsible to deliver the item to the closest and safest point possible of the noted municipal address as would be reasonably possible with a freight truck, and the driver will advise as to where that point is at time of delivery. The driver will deliver your order but will not help with unloading the shipped product.
It is the customers responsibility to notify the shipper within 24 hours of the delivery time and follow the shipper's policies and procedures for filing a damages claim.
