Unload or Liftgate Service is a service offered on most items requiring shipment by motor freight. This is an extra cost option available at the time the order is placed. It means, the freight carrier will do one of two things, depending on the delivery vehicle.
- The equipment will be placed on the liftgate of the truck and lowered to the ground. The driver will then take the equipment off the liftgate.
- If no liftgate is available on the delivering truck, the freight carrier will lower the equipment to the ground.
In either case, once off the liftgate or delivery truck, the customer assumes responsibility for any further placement or delivery of the equipment. NOTE - Unload or Liftgate Service is a per shipment charge. It applies to orders being shipped from one location. If necessary to ship from two locations, then two Unload or Liftgate Service charges would apply.
