How will my bed ship?
All of our shipments ship via standard freight trucks. Most of our shipments are curbside deliveries. In order to have your bed delivered, the carrier must first schedule a delivery appointment with you. It is important to inspect your shipment prior to accepting your shipment. There should be no holes, tears or any signs of damage. If you notice something odd please inspect the inside contents first.
You will be receiving 2 boxes for the bed frame only, 3 boxes if you ordered a headboard. The boxes can be quite heavy and you must have additional help on your delivery date to help you bring the boxes inside your home from your truck bed. Please note that the carrier is not responsible for bringing the boxes inside your home nor assembling your bed. If you desire to have your bed brought inside your home and assembled then you must contact us for a White Glove Delivery quote.
Average box weights:
- 4 Drawer frames each half: 100 lbs
- 8 Drawer frames each box: 150-175 lbs
- Headboards: 40-80 lbs
What is a freight delivery?
A freight delivery is when an item that needs to be shipped is 80 pounds or more. Anything over 80 pounds must go Freight (one of the big semi-trucks you see on the freeway).
What is a Loading Dock?
a Loading Dock is a recessed bay in a building or facility where trucks are loaded and unloaded. They generally back in and the dock is level with the truck for easy loading and unloading.
What is a Lift Gate?
When the shipping or receiving address does not have a loading dock, manual loading or unloading is necessary. A lift gate is a platform at the back of certain trucks that can raise and lower a shipment from the ground to the truck. Lift gate service is always used on freight exceeding 80 lbs in weight if loading dock is not available. If freight weight exceeds 80 lbs and loading dock is not available at pick-up and/or drop-off locations, a lift gate service must be purchased.
What is Curbside Delivery?
Curbside Delivery provides delivery made to the curb at the end of your driveway or parking lot. It is not the driver’s responsibility to bring freight into house, garage, building, etc. Drivers do not assist with unpacking, set-up or clean up.
What is Inside Delivery?
Inside delivery is when the driver brings the shipped items from the truck to the entrance of your building. Generally this means the items will be brought inside the front or back door – for example, a lobby or back room. Inside delivery does not include delivery down a hallway or up stairs.
