Patio Port - Special Truck Rate Information
Truck freight products are usually quite heavy products - yet sometimes they are fully assembled products which are simply too big for FedEx and UPS. Usually these are our Teak Outdoor Patio Furniture Sets and Java Teak Patio Collections, yet ocassionally they are teak benches, teak bar sets, teak dining tables, and the like.
These truck freight products always have larger freight charges than FedEx or UPS products. We, at Patio Port pay all of these charges for you.
Truck freight companies require a signature when the products are received, but they will always call you to set up a delivery date and time, and anyone you authorize can sign for the shipment.
When we ship from All Things Cedar and VIFAH, most of these products are light enough to be hand delivered from the truck to a couple of persons standing on the ground. In an effort to offer the best possible prices, we do not include a lift gate fee when we price these products. (But we do offer this service, at a small additional charge when it is requested.)
Truck freight products from Anderson Teak and Warner Levitzson are another matter. Most of their products are quite heavy - too heavy to be hand delivered from the truck. Because of this, we always pre-pay a lift gate fee for you. This means that the truck driver will load the product carton and pallet onto a fork lift and drop it gently at your curbside.
