New Shipping Information:
We have had all sorts
of "issues" with freight companies the past couple years trying to use Economy Freight brokers, discounted shipping
companies, etc. This was all in an effort to get the Trailer Toads to the customers at a lower cost.
Basically, it was a joke. It ended up costing us more to ship than the quote about
60% of the time and tracking was difficult and delivery times meant nothing to the Economy Freight companies.
It was NOT good customer service for my customers and I had no control
over it. Those days are behind us now.
We have decided we will not lose money on shipping
costs any longer.
To that end we will get a freight quote for each shipment and if you
want us to, send a copy of the quote to you, the customer, you will know exactly what the freight costs are. We do not want
to make money on shipping costs but we can no longer lose hundreds of dollars on a single shipment because the company decides
to charge more. It is ridiculous and I have fought it long enough.
As of today, December 23rd, 2020 we will use just three freight
companies to deliver Trailer Toads.
Carriers, ABF Freight Systems and XPO Logisitics
Priority and Insured Shipping quotes available, just ask when you call.
If shipment arrival time is critical
we recommend Accelerated / Priority Shipping.
We will work with these
three Carriers to get you the lowest rate and best delivery service we can. Remember, this is not UPS or Fed Ex Ground, it
is Truck Freight and delivery times are basically an estimate. (They do offer Guaranteed Delivery dates at add'l costs).
Priority and Time Critical delivery is available, call for
Shipping weights: 3500HD on pallet - 700-lbs.
5000SD on pallet 800-lbs.
$66.00 "Custom Pallet Fee"
will be added to every shipment
fee covers the cost of the custom, heavy duty pallets we have built to protect your Trailer Toad during transportation.
It is the Customer's Responsibility to thoroughly inspect the Trailer Toad upon delivery.
*** IMPORTANT!! If it is
damaged during shipment and the Delivery Receipt is signed without noting the damage and having the Driver sign the description
of the damage; we have literally NO CHANCE to get those damages paid for.
***This is IMPORTANT, take your time and look
for scratches, damages to the shrink wrap that might indicate a forklift hit the Trailer Toad or a broken, tore up pallet. Make
notes on both copies of the Delivery Receipt and take photos of any damages. It is rare that damage occurs but IMPORTANT you
inspect the delivery closely.
