Freight Companies

Extra Freight Charges

Freight Truck

Certain items such as Pond Liner and other large and or heavy items require extra freight. Examples of these items can be found below. Please note that our payment processors are setup to pre-authorize payments. If items require extra shipping we are allowed to add up to 25% of the purchase for freight. This would be added to the payment before it is completed.

For heavy and/or large items a freight service such as Apex Motor Express or Canadian Freightways will be used. The weight can be up to 2000 pounds for a large liner, therefore a freightliner truck is required for these order.

Please call or email us for a freight quote if you wish.

As well as the freight charge there are 2 extra fees listed below which may apply to freight orders.

 

Power Tail Gate or Lift Gate

Residential Delivery Fee

It can be tricky and time consuming to get a large freight truck into residential neighborhoods. For this reason carriers charge a standard residential fee of $65. Carriers define a business zone as a location that opens and closes to the public at set times every day. If you are a business located in a residential zone, (among personal homes or dwellings) the carrier may charge the additional residential fee as well.

 

Liftgate or Power Tailgate Fee

When the destination location does not have a loading dock, manual loading or unloading is necessary. This requires a liftgate, which is a motorized platform attached to the back of certain trucks that can lower a shipment to the ground or vice versa. This is also a standardized fee of $65. If access is permitted the liftgate can lower a Pond liner to where it is required.
