    Hello,

    I am starting to see more taxidermists get stuck with liftgate and residential delivery fees after delivery because they didn't check on 2 important considerations prior to shipping.

    The following 2 tips will help circumvent these problems.

    1) Ask your client if they can offload their crate by hand or if they will need a truck with a liftgate. (liftgate fees are $50 to $100 per shipment depending on the carrier)

    2) Ask your client if the delivery address is residential or commercial. I recommend verifying using google maps. Home based businesses are coded as residential deliveries by trucking companies. (residential delivery fees are $50 to $75 per shipment depending on the carrier.

    Hope this helps!

    If you need more information you can call, text or email me.
