SHIPPING : This grill is shipped via common carrier (truck w/ trailer usually) boxed and strapped to a pallet. We usually have units shipped directly from MAK to you , the end user. If you prefer your grill assembled, we would welcome you to come directly to us and get your new grill and while you are there, we can tell you how to use it , etc. etc. That being said, truck shipments can be specified to come to you various ways :
1. Shipped to truck terminal near you. This is the least expensive method. They call you when it's there, you drive there with your Van, Minivan, Truck, pickup truck, small trailer, or whatever and they will plop the entire pallet or just the grill in the box onto your vehicle.
**** TRUCK SHIPPING OPTIONS. -
For more money ...usually $ 50 to $ 100.00 you can have it delivered into a residential area to a residential address. The trucker will drag the pallet to the back of the truck which is pretty high off the grround ..mnaybe 4 to 5 feet. It is then the recipient's responsibility to get it down from the truck and onto his property. Usually the trucker will at least help you get it off the truck and onto the curb.
For Even more money, you can order "Lift Gate Service" the same truck and trucker come but they have a powered elevator/gate on the back of the truck that brings it down to street level and they will just slide it off for you . Sometimes you can get them to put it in your driveway but most times don't count on that.
Regardless of which method you choose, be sure to give your box a good "once over" for damage and have the driver notate any damages that show on the box, on the paperwork before you sign.
