Carrier will call you 24-48 hours prior to delivery to arrange a delivery time that will vary depending on the freight carrier's schedule. Carriers are only able to deliver Monday-Friday during normal business hours, and they will give you a 4-hour delivery window.
Small items (such as a lamp, a pillow, or a throw) are sent by courier. These will be delivered as soon as possible, and the courier will not call ahead in advance to schedule delivery. Courier deliveries do not require a signature upon delivery and your package will be left on your doorstep if you are not available to receive it.
Inform the carrier if you have any circumstances that could affect the delivery (additional fees may apply):
*Dead-end street*Very narrow driveway
*Ferry for island locations, etc. (fees may apply)

Storage Fees: Daily storage fees may also apply if you do not accept delivery within 5 business days of the freight carrier’s first attempt to schedule delivery. If you missed the phone call from the freight carrier, then contact the freight carrier back as soon as possible. After 5 business days, the freight carrier may store your item and you may be charged storage fees.
Please make sure not to miss your delivery appointment; you may incur additional delivery fees such as re-delivery, storage charges and/or return shipping costs.
Delivery Service With No Signature

The carrier may also charge additional fees if steep uphill or downhill slopes lead to the entryway of your residence or business. These fees vary and can exceed $100.
