Be aware that the pallet on the freight truck is your responsibility to unload.
You can cut the strapping and shrink wrap and hand unload or rent an outdoor forklift.
Pallets can weigh up to 1500 pounds. You are solely responsible for your safety, not damaging your load, and not damaging the freight carrier’s property when unloading by hand or with heavy equipment.
There will not be a forklift or liftgate provided.
If you are hand unloading, the heaviest pieces will be the box containing the greenhouse film (between 70lbs and 280 lbs). The hardware box may weigh up to 60 pounds. Most of the bulk is easily handled.
The carrier will allow time to unload but be prepared with help. The driver is not paid or required to help with unloading. Remember that the driver will likely be on a tight schedule. Unload as quickly as you can while staying safe.
In some cases, a lift gate may be available but will be up to the carrier and will result in additional fees up to $150 of which you will be responsible for.
