MOTOR FREIGHT SHIPPING INFORMATION:
Motor freight shipping means BIG truck, unlike UPS or FedEx that leaves a package on your doorstep. Trucking companies base their costs on weight and size, and usually have a minimum weight, so it may cost the same for an item that weighs 50 pounds as an item that weighs 250 pounds.
Motor freight companies will not offload without your assistance, nor will they leave anything without a signature. Therefore, you must have the capability to get your merchandise off the truck, either with a forklift, tractor with forks, a ramp, etc. Most trucking companies will deliver with a lift gate if you specify you want lift gate service when you place your order. You will be asked at checkout if you wish to have your merchandise delivered via a truck with Lift Gate service. Lift Gate fee is typically $130. If selected this fee will be added to your product at checkout.
Lift Gate Service means the carrier will deliver your product on a truck that has a lift in the back. This lift will lower your product from the large truck bed to ground level. This may eliminate your need to have a forklift or tractor available at delivery. It is your responsibility to get the product off the truck so you have to determine if the lift gate is necessary.
At the Motor Freight companies discretion they may call in advance to make sure someone will be there to offload and sign for the delivery; however, if you require them to call you, they will charge an additional $35 to $50 fee, again depending on the motor freight company. If delivery is made and nobody is home a re-delivery fee may be imposed. If you do not accept delivery within a certain period of time the trucking company may charge you a storage fee. Additional fees and disputes over the delivery times are between you and the trucking company.
S.L.Websales, Inc has no control over the trucking company’s schedule. We recommend the following:
1. If you know anyone with a business address that gets motor freight deliveries, ask them if it's ok to have your delivery sent to them, and you can pick it up from their location.
3. Specify in the comments section you want to pick the item up at the nearest freight terminal. If the freight company delivering your merchandise has a local terminal we will notify you and adjust the shipping cost.
Very Important: You MUST examine the merchandise carefully upon receipt and note any damages, missing pieces, wrong product, etc.. on the carrier's delivery receipt. Document the issues on the shippers freight bill and fax directly to us on the same day (If delivery is after hours and you cannot reach S.L.Websales, Inc you must leave us a message indicating the issue and a contact number to reach you. Do NOT refuse the delivery. S.L.Websales, Inc will file the claim with the carrier and make sure that all replacement merchandise and/or repairs are completed at no charge. You are financially responsible for merchandise damaged or any shortages in shipment unless you document the damage or shortage on the shippers freight bill. If you refuse delivery due to damage, you will be required to file the freight claim with the carrier and/or you will be responsible for all shipping cost.
S.L.Websales, Inc will NOT except responsibility if damages, shortages, or wrong products are not documented at time of delivery or if delivery is refused. This means if an item is damaged and you do NOT document the damage on the freight bill, you will be solely responsible for filing the claim with the freight company and if they do not honor the claim, we cannot help you. We recommend documenting on the freight bill any scratches, chipped paint, dents, holes in cardboard, or anything that does not look right – it will make a big difference if a claim is filed at a later date for hidden damages. Note: Taking pictures is also a great idea.
**Refusing an order due to wrong product, missing pieces, product different than description or pictured does not recuse the customer from original and return shipping charges.
If your property is not accessible by motor freight we cannot be responsible for any additional charges incurred to deliver the freight. In some cases, drivers may require curbside delivery which may include unloading at the end of a driveway.
We do not guarantee delivery dates! Our manufacturers have a very good record of getting motor freight shipments to you in 10 to 14 days but there are times when it may take longer. If you have to have an item by a certain date tell us when you place your order. If we feel the product cannot be delivered by the specified date we will notify you and cancel your order.
