Truck Freight Shipment Requirements

  1. Delivery location must be accessible to the delivery truck
  2. Unloading and moving product(s) is your responsibility

    Truck freight companies do NOT require their drivers to unload shipments.

    Lift Gate Example

    Lift Gate Service

    For an additional fee, Lift Gate Service provides a hydraulic lift on the back of the delivery truck to safely lower your product(s) to the ground.

    If you do not have the equipment or manpower to unload your product(s), please select a shipping option during checkout that includes Lift Gate Service.

  3. Inspect all packages upon delivery

    Any damages or shortages MUST be noted on the bill of lading at the time of delivery. Notify the carrier and Northern Tool immediately and we will assist you as fully as we can. Please retain a signed copy of the bill of lading for your records.
